PA Flintlock deer season 12/26/12-01/12/13.

The Winter has been mild so far in PA. The day after Christmas I will go afield with capote, flinter, 'hawk and possibles bag. We do not need the Hunter Orange hat and vest and that is OK because I have yet to see another Longhunter in the Flintlock Season.

Five does are bedded on the wooded hill behind my home as that is their Core Area and so it will remain. Neither me or my neighbors allow shooting does. The Pennsylvania Game Commission keeps selling too many doe tags for the revenue and too many folks buy them and then fill them and then say, "I don't see no deer." DUH!

I will carry a .54 flintlock stoked with roundball and 75 grains of 3F Goex. Only a buck need worry.

Got a nice 8 pointer during the early ML season in December and looking forward to the late season for ML in January.

Muzzleloader season

My last deer fell to a Lyman .50 caliber flintlock, 80 grains of FFG and a patched roundball. I had to work today so did not get out to hunt. A friend called me at work to help get his muzzleloader firing again. I told him to use a safety pin to clear the touch hole, replace the flint and wipe the frizzen. He did and his gun went off as usual. All the best...

Here in W.Pa area 2B is still in with BP. I am not hunting now but still watch other hunters and like just the other day after hearing someone say they just can't find any deer, I decided to grab a coffee at McD and drive to the area this guy has been hunting. Looked around a tad, parked my truck, took short 10yd walk up a bank and sure enough were 3 deer standing 15yds lookin at me. Guess he just does not know what to lookfor?..I never did tell him I seen them there either. Hang in there doe, season almost over. Anyhow, yesterday as I passed his parking spot there he was..heading out again. We gabbed, I wished him luck,gave him a bag of speed beef jerkey and with all his cammo, gear and all the high tec equipment he was dragging with him, I watched him walk off to his spot..smelling like a know the Potpourri he keeps in his truck to make it smell pretty..I just laughed and waved at the deer on way down the hill as they were already leaving his area. I could of swore I seen one deer laughing.
