HUNTING, and online friendships.

Flintlock by BlueDragonfyr; Powderhorn by Cayote44

Its big game season in Colorado, and although I am a nature watcher, I am also a hunter.  My favorite method of hunting is with my .54 flintlock blackpowder muzzleloader.  I have dropped two elk with it so far.  Tomorrow I hope to make it three.

The rifle was custom made and presented to me along with other hunting items by some very special and wonderful people I had met online at a blackpowder message board.  The powderhorn was also made for me as part of a barter by another member from the board.

While it is true that one must be cautious when meeting people online, I have been very fortunate then and now to have encountered some exceptional people whom I feel honored to share this piece of cyber space with.  People I am honored to call friends.  To all of my new friends here, thank you for allowing me to be part of your world as I share mine with you.

I wish you the best of luck.  I also want to thank you for all the great pictures you put online.  I have saved some and put them on my desktop to show to my family.  I also wanted to note.  I didn't always get game when I go hunting but the thrill of the hunt makes it worth it anyway.  Best wishes to you and yours.  Ray

Hope you can make it 3. That is a really neat rifle, like the personalized powder horn.      ~Deborah

That is a nice muzzleloader.  I prefer a nice AR-15 myself:)

I guess the elk prefer you carry a camera:)

It was my understanding that Dickidoo thought he owned 'Dorn's horn.'
