Was out squirrel hunting the other day. On my slow walk back to my truck, I saw another hunter coming up the path. As it was the way out of the woods and back to my truck, I ended up crossing paths with the man. To my surprise, he was carrying a Flintlock. It was the first time I've encountered another small game hunter using a muzzle loader. We talked for a few minutes. I looked over his rifle. It was a southern style 40 caliber Flintlock. It was a very beautiful firearm. He told me he had the gun built for him. Whomever built that gun was an artist for sure. I told him he had one fine firearm. I then left him to his hunt and continued on my way.
