I used to but just don't have time anymore. I hunt between the cracks in time.

wapitirod, I have a CVA Hawkins pistol that I used to run 90grns of Goex FFG, 490 patched round ball, #11 RWS cap. Might as well been throwing rock blind folded. Backed it down to 60grns and at 10 yards I could consistently split the ball on a axe head, and knock over steel targets at 50 & 75 yards. Got too lazy to clean it so I haven't shot it in years. Got more time in my life now think I'll have to dig that old bird out.

Most fun I've had in a while was my cousin inviting me to flintlock hunt during the late PA season last year. The only thing primitive was the choice of weapons but we had a great time.

I picked up a Traditions Trapper flintlock pistol for next year. Probably split time between that and my Renegade. Already looking forward to next season.

In the circles i run with we refer to that simply as tent camping, not primitive camping or hunting.
It's my preference! Actually, it's all I've ever known.
