First day of muzzleloader season

On the first day of muzzleloader season I ventured out into the rain a little before 7 o’clock with my flintlock rifle. After it was starting time I started still hunting into the woods. About two hours later and 200 yards I saw a deer standing about 75 yards away through the branches watching me. The top of its head was a little hard to see through the branches so I could not identify it as an antlerless deer. So, I held my fire and after a few more seconds it spooked then I saw that it was indeed and antlerless deer, but it was to late to fire. Shortly after it spooked a second deer came into view with its tail up and running. I was not able to tell for sure what the second deer was.
