Not hard to stalk at all. Work the wind, dont be afraid to belly crawl, they don't see well but are not blind so don’t move when they are looking around and watch your noise. Oh, and you’ll never beat their nose!!
Walk
Be careful where you say that, I was mocked on another muzzleloading forum for suggesting that belly crawling was necessary at times.

Well, it took 6 days in the stand in northern Wisconsin but finally got my bear! Saw a small one first day that I let go and another later that day that I would have taken but wouldn't give me a good shot, so didn't push it.
This one came on to the bait the last day of my hunt, 383# sow without cubs, by the head I figured it was a boar. She was nearly dry so must have kicked the cubs out few weeks ago. Big beast that was a real chore getting out of the woods, luckily it was only 70 yds drag to the river where we could float it down to the truck and river was only about 18" at deepest. Fun hunt and hard to be back in real world aside from being back with the family...

Good shooting! Have killed one here in WV with my caplock… look forward to using my flintlock on one!
