    Traditional Hunts

    Are there any states besides PA that have cap lock/ flintlock only hunts? Preferably in the central part of the United States. Here in Missouri we can’t even get a managed hunt with traditional muzzleloader/archery only. It’s a shame.

    Muzzleloader supplies.

    Where do you shop online for your muzzleloader supplies? I have always gone through Track of the Wolf for what my local store doesn't carry, but there s&h is so high. Graf and Sons s&h is reasonable, but what they carry is so limited. Just curious.

    Twist in a 32 swamp barrel?

    Thinking of having a gun built with a 32 caliber swamped Rice barrel. The only thing is it is in 1-70 twist. Most of the smaller caliber barrels that I've seen have a faster twist. Will I be able to shoot light squirrel hunting PRB loads out of it?

    Traditions Shenandoah?

    I have a Traditions Shenandoah flintlock that was made without the brass patch box or brass star on the stock. Does anyone know why there were two different kinds made and where I could get the patch box and other furniture at to add to my Shenandoah?

    Best place to buy parts?

    I'm working on a stock that will resemble a TC Hawken and was wondering where the best place to buy furniture and locks for it would be? I am going to drop an Green Mountain replacement barrel in it. It is a 15/16 barrel also. Any help would be appreciated.

    Traditions Flintlock?

    Have any of you heard of Traditions making a Pennsylvania Flintlock in .45 caliber? I have seen them in .50 but not .45. Might have a chance on buying one and the guy said he thought it was a .45 and was just wondering.

    First kill with my 54 Hawken.

    [/URL][/img] I shot this little spike with my TC Hawken in 54 caliber and 70 grains of FFF with PRB. He was shot at 40 yards and expired after about a 40 yard dash. I shot him on a managed hunt in an urban area where there isn't any point restriction. I saw and passed many larger deer including...

    T/C Maxi Bullet?

    I was wondering if anyone has tried these? Thought about trying them in my .45 Hawken this deer season. I've always shot PRB in both the .54 and .45 but was looking for a little more knock down with the smaller caliber.

    It all started with one!

    A couple of years ago I bought a 54 caliber T/C Hawken from my uncle. He bought it as a kit gun in the mid 80's. Well long story short I fell in love with it and now have my youngest son hooked as well. Now between us we have three. My 54, his 50 with a Green Mnt. PRB barrel, and a 45 as well.

    My new hawk.

    [/URL][/img] I bought this New Reliable Hawk from Track of the Wolf this week. I stained the handle and took all the paint off the head and boiled it in vinegar. I think it looks pretty good for under $40.
