~Week of traditional muzzleloading deer hunting

Post by DaleH »

My friends and I setup a 12' canvas wall-tent in the deep woods of Vermont and then ferried the supplies in by toboggan for a week+ long muzzleloading deer hunt. We setup as traditional camp as we can, less items for safety, so wood stove, candles, getting water from the stream (less drinking water to be safe), etc.

We also all hunt using replicas of original flintlocks dating from the 1770s to 1805 for the 'oldest' design. In the 4-days I was there, it rained 2 out of the 4 days. Wearing 100% wool products kept us warm & dry throughout the rain and keeping my lock assy tucked up under my armpit kept it out of the elements. When in the areas of buck only, we saw does after does. In the area where I could take a doe, I walked up within 40-yards of a mature cow moose. Pretty cool, a big'un girl she was!

My friends are still out there ...
