Hi everyone,

I just moved to Maine and am sinking into the outdoor culture nicely. I grew up shooting WWII and Vietnam era military weapons, but have recently wanted to take a plunge into hunting, and more specifically flintlock hunting.

The whole endeavor of building a muzzleloader, figuring out desired loads, becoming proficient with the weapon, and cleaning the weapon, has all really grabbed me. I’m also really looking forward to the type of hunting it forces you to enter into. Not to mention the amiable community it seems to attract!

I’m excited to be here and be a part of the community!

Welcome from the mid coast of Maine. How many exits did you drive up to settle here?
Just south of Portland. We are looking at property up mid-coast though! Somewhere outside of Rockland.

Sounds like you gotta get out of the desert, my friend!

The horned toad says we should go to Mexico.
No. He's still in New Hampshire if below Portland. Down East is east of Acadia and beyond and beyond.....
Buy the property up north! I can see Baxter state park from my neighborhood. Walked up to 10 yards from a young bull moose up here just for fun! Dont know why I'm still alive doing stupid stuff like that. The wife retreated to the truck at that point. Smart. 🤪

I’m so jealous! I’d love to move up in that area but I’m pretty sure the wife would use the flintlock on me if I subject her to being that far away from the nearest mall ;)

I just checked you guys out, what a great looking community. How would I go about getting more involved? Looking for some good communities to be a part of.
