    Bout that time of year again. Gotta dust off the wall hanger...hunt up the powder flask and see what happens. I'll post some targets before halloween...I picked up a dancing, singing werewolf last night...oh yeah, back to shooting:D

    Was deer hunting one time, had a little spike walk up to about 20 yards and decided to take him, pulled the trigger and POP....cap went off but nothing else...deer just hopped around a bit and looked at me like I was nutz, put a new cap on and same thing...deer just hopped around and looked at me again like" leave me alone I'm lookin for a girl friend".
    I kid you not, this went on for 10 caps before I finally just gave up, the spike never ran of until I stood up.
    It had rained the night before and I guess the powder had drawed moisture or something. I had to take the nipple out, poke some powder in and finally got the gun to shoot.
    The joys of BP hunting;)

    I've not gone so far as 10 caps, but I did have a coyote walk up to within about 20 feet of my blind, while I was dribbling powder into the bolster and getting the nipple back in. I was getting real nervous before I got the rifle back in service.
