Final Week Of Pennsylvania Flintlock Season

On the final day of the season I jumped two antlerless deer that were about 150yards away so I passed on that shot. I think the deer were the same two that early on in the week I had jumped about 30 yards away. I tried for a shot that time, but my flint broke so I my gun never went off. That day I also saw two maybe three deer in an area that has solid woods for at least 1/3 mile around. Those deer saw me first though and were a good 200 yards away by the time I saw them.

Even though I am lacking a deer I had a good two weeks of hunting and look forwards to next years rocklock season. It seems like every time you go out you come back with something new learned about the animal’s tracks or habits, so this season was in that sense very successful for me.
