little bit of luck in the turkey woods!
« on: May 06, 2020, 01:59:17 PM »
finally got the monkey off my back yesterday and killed one with my flintlock. went from field to pan in a matter of hours great hunt and great lunch! used my Roy Stroh club butt fowler named Fudd. 90 grains FF, hornets nest, 1 1/2 ounce #5 topped with hornets nest. 5 yard shot was not a pretty scene! Rich Pierce if you look close i'm sure you recognize that nice white flint in the jaws!

With a load like that I bet he dropped like a rock!  Nicely done.

At that range you should have reversed that weapon and clubbed him. LOL Bet the bird tasted great. Well done.

Is there a chance that this gun might be marked E. Fudd?
