    Some of our brothers in South Afrika get together every year for a black powder era hunt. I drool over the pics every time I log on to the forum. So the thought occurred to me maybe we could start one here in the US. Im in Maryland and I do a lot of hunting in NW Pennsylvania. There are some good public grounds there. Im not sure about camping; but Im guessing its OK(?).

    My idea would be for a few guys who'd like to do some hunting/camping with period "looking" gear/weapons.

    Whos interested?

    Im open to suggestions....

    This is an old thread but I have to respond black powder is my favorite hunting. My dad makes rifles and period correct powder horns.
    We have a small 10-12 guys who drive beer after Christmas we scare a lot of deer kill a few I have harvested 9 in my career and sometimes use my .54 cal pa long rifle in regular fire arms season.

    Driving beer doesn't sound as hard as driving deer... but it does sound a lot more refreshing....:D Beer Bottle:
