Well, 1 of the 2 boats is already put away and wrapped for the Winter ... wrapped now to mainly keep the Fall leaves OUT of her, LOL. So it's time to get back into the muzzleloading projects. Having completed a 62-caliber flintlock smoothbore last year, this year it was a 50-caliber flint MZL longrifle, to which I added carving (my 1st attempt) and am now finishing with hand-rubbed oil coats. The stock is premium grade tiger-striped maple and the barrel is a swamped (thinner in the waist) round-bottomed grooved barrel by Getz.

Looking pretty good, huh?

Yes, I do, in fact I only hunt with muzzleloaders nowadays, mostly as I just enjoy the days afield. I'll be up in VT this Fall for their muzzleloading season. Thanks :D for the comments!

Attached are some camp photos, nice wood stove inside that you can't see, with the ~100-pound German Shepherd on guard!:

Here's how the longrifle turned out ... sights 'left high' so I can cut them down to my desired height, after I settle on a hunting load.

Take up 'real' muzzleloading and I can get you into a camp. We have 2 tents and sometimes set them up together, one big 10' wide by 22' tent, with a wood stove at each end; one for heat (sleeping/social side) and the other stove for cooking (and gear storage area).

We also go to the deep woods of PA and setup a Winter camp between Xmas and New Years, for their flintlock-only muzzleloading deer season, but we're not sure the camp site will be open this Winter, due to Covid ...
