I am in the market for a flintlock to hunt whitetail with in western PA.
I have been hunting all my life with rifles, shotguns, and bows, but I know nothing about flintlock rifles.
From looking around I seem to like the smaller rifles like the Lyman Deerstalker, TC Fire Storm, and a couple other Traditions & Cabelas smaller carbine type models. The smaller rifles are what I am interested in.
There are huge price differences between some Traditions models and others, why? Are traditions decent models?
I'm not going to be shooting daily, weekly, or even monthly. I will do load development, sight it, and probably shoot it a few times before each season.
I do not want a pellet gun.

I'm not trying to break the bank, but also do not want to buy a POS!

Any help would be appreciated -Thank You

lyman and cableas are both great rifles. Traditions makes a darn good flinter thats accurate and reliable. Lyman/cabelas have walnut stocks while traditions uses a lower cost Beech wood stock.

The traditions woodsman or hawken will be good. I shoot the Kentucky and love it.

But you cant go wrong with lyman/cabelas hawken. Deerstalker sounds pretty good to me.
