I just got into the muzzle loading a few months ago.Got a .58 flintlock trade gun.I can`t wait to try it out on squirrel,turkeys,rabbits.That`s the main reason I got a trade gun,I can shoot ball or shot out of it.I need more practice because it`s a whole new ball game compared to the modern guns.Kinda like comparing a compound bow with all the bells and whisles to a traditional/primitive longbow or recurve.Two differant ball games.Flintlocks and traditional/primitive bows take more time and dedication to be good at.But,you gotta love the old ways.

Nothing like hunting squirrels with a flintlock.

We are 2 months away from the opening day of squirrel season here in Maryland. Since I was a teenager I have looked forward to it more than any other season. Hunting out of a period camp and cooking them in the field making squirrel gravy to go over biscuits is the best. I am salivating just thinking about it!

I have only ever cooked one squirrel, a big black one. He was as tough as a piece of tractor tire ! Skinning him was a major chore, so I appreciate the advice re doing it ASAP. Any secret recipes for tender squirrel out there ?
