I´m from Connecticut, an avid hunter, fisherman, trapper, Muzzleloader builder(for friends and relatives) Western rider, and pilot. I hunt with traditional bows, flintlocks & percussion (traditional guns), and my most modern gun is a model 1894 38-55 made in 1902. I´m in Brazil at the moment, and will miss opening day of rifle in CT on Wednesday, but I´ll be home soon. 99% of my muzzleloader hunting is with flintlocks for Turkey´s Deer, and Squirrels! Life is good.
Welcome to the campfire, rogerdoger; life is always good when you carry a flintlock into the fields and woods. You are in with the right crowd at this fire. Tell us more about the guns you hunt with and about your gun building. Photos are required (man law).

New here myself RD but welcome. This is a great place to hang your hat.
I was a member of the forum years ago and got sidetracked with other things. I'm back, ready to do lots of reading and learning from others, and contribute where I can.
Rogerdoger,, Welcome to our fire,
Welcome from another new guy.
Welcome to fire rogerdoger this is great place to be.

Welcome. It's a pleasure. This is a great place. I look forward to your posts.
I'm not a computer person, but just as soon as I can figure it out I'll post a picture of my latest creation. It's a Tulle Fusil of the style that may have been used by the Rhode Island malitia (SP) during our revolution. Complete with bayonet, it's long for sure...12 GA smooth for deer & turkey hunting. I haven't even shot it yet.
I got back off the road on Thursday, and that afternoon harvested a 5 point with my 38-55. Saturday morning, I harvested a big doe with an 1873 Springfield, officers model trap door in 45-70. Rifle is over for me and now it's back to the longbow...I can't wait for Muzzleloader season! I'll start Muzzleloader season with a .45 cal. Bedford county percussion I made some years ago, then use either a 1770's Christopher Gumph .54 or a New England fowler 10 GA. Yup, life is good!
