Getting better and better! Broke out the gunstock war club to try throwing today. A little different dynamic, but I got it down pretty quick! #gunstockwarclub #tomahawk #longhunter #outdoorskills #abvnetworkcrew

Charles Baum rescued this Traditions Deer Hunter from a gun show table. “I added all the brass including the support for the drum. Sights are nicely visible to my old eyes but the picture is a bit coarse for best accuracy. Have to practice my hold. This barrel .32, also have a .50, and a .54 with musket style rifling which I plan to try with shot. Keeping busy at home. One gun for squirrels to Turkey.” It looks great Charles, we hope you enjoy shooting it as much as you did fixing it up! #muzzleloading #muzzleloader #blackpowder #muzzleblasts #NMLRA #longhunter #traditionskit #traditionsbuild #muzzleloaderhunting #muzzleloaderseason #Longhuntersociety #21stcenturylonghunter #pewpewlife #longrifle #halfstock

Just finished up a copper trekking lantern. I'm out of horn for the moment so I went with mica for the window. I put a second ring inside to act as a wax catcher. I've noticed with the other lanterns I made like this, that when the candle gets down to the bottom that it melts all the wax in that area. This should help extend total burn time. #tinsmith #coppersmith #trekking #18centurystyle #longhunter

With 2 of the 5 rendezvous and market fairs I go to cancelled so far, at least I can still get the smell of them. Woodsmoke, half rotted fire wood, and fresh cut grass. What you can’t get is talking to and learning from the awesome folks that you meet there. @gossmanknives and @fox_track_forge let’s hope Fort Loudon stays on track! #frontiersman #longhunter #18thcenturymarketfair

#sidelockSunday from Danny Loschert! “ I'm liking the color on my 50 caliber Hawken style rifle better than my Kentucky 45 caliber, this is gonna be my next project...that red color has got to go !!

Just a quick couple shots of a new blade I got from @ramshacklehomesteadsurvive . This is what a friend of mine and I would call a “frontier/ SERE knife. Could’ve been hammered out at a shop in 1767 or at a SERE school forge yesterday. Thin slicer with Nesmuck design, riveted and stitched sheath, a backwoods carry blade that will carve, skin and handle most woods chores. Thanks Keith and Jen for the quick service and support your small business craftsman! #frontiersman #longhunter #homesteader #frontierknife #hammeredsteel

.50 smooth bore pretty much done finally! All homemade iron mounts in a piece of cherry off of the farm, this one is a keeper to be passed down the family hopefully one of these days. Bag and shot pouch was made by Dwight Gallion from Indiana. Dwight is one hell of a craftsman in about anything he does from blacksmithing, bladesmithing, huntin bags , bead work..u name it. The simple clean horn was made by Brian Huffman from Ohio, he can be found in the horn makers shop down at friendship during the national shoots. #contemporarylongrifleassociation #longhunter #flintlock #huntingbag #leatherwork #cherrywood #handforged #indianamade #blackbowder #livinghistory #flintlockfriday #muzzleblast #kiblerslongrifles

Frenchman Marlin le Bourgeoys is credited with inventing the flintlock mechanism. For roughly 200 years this won battles, fed people, protected homes etc. Simply dropping a rock on a frizzen to create a spark shot through a touch hole to ignite more powder to project a round ball down a barrel. Primitive technology or genius we don’t see anymore, I lean towards genius. #flintlockrifle #longhunter #frontiersman

Shared by Joe Bowman You come across it reading through accounts, In journals. La petite guerre. The small war. Small company warfare. Light,fast. Raiding,scouting. The French,eastern woodland tribes Used the rough terrain,weather Time of day even as a shield. Speed and ferocity of attack and then vanishing into the forest.. Like shadows.. Thinking about how hard a sere kinda life like that is,always on your toes,on the go Looking over your shoulder Low small fires,or cold camps if you thought you couldn't risk it.. #muzzleloading #flintlock #blackpowder #muzzleblasts #longhunter #trekking #livinghistory #flintlockrifle #longrifle #huntlonglivewell #smokepole #rocklock

Eric Linksi shared this story on facebook and we just had to share! “This was back in October, my 12 year old with his first ML deer. Knight LK 93, 50 cal. We refinished the stock with a spider web paint job. He shot all summer, ." A lots more fun then shooting them with my 708 ." #muzzleloader #muzzleloading #hunting #huntingseason #fullfreezer #longhunter #muzzleloaderseason #muzzleblasts #NMLRA

Muzzleloaders must run in my family. This picture shows two rifles and sets of equipment the bottom rifle and gear on the right were my dad’s shooting gear, the top rifle and gear on the left is mine. Even though he passed away years ago I think he would get a kick out of this picture. #flintlock #muzzleloader #longhunter #bushcraftgear #blackpowderrifle #muzzleloaderhunting #longrifle #fatherandson

Cutting my losses today. I'm not going to be able to get this entire cowhide scraped. It's super greasy and the rectangular section I cut out has zero slash marks and small enough I can frame it in my shed and put a fan on it. Eastern longhunter used to cut big heavy hides like elk, and bison into tugs. The skin side was scraped, the hair left on and it was cut round and round to make one narrow, long, flat piece of strap used to tie stuff up with. #cabinlife #upnorthmichigan #braintan #cowhide #tugs #longhunter #happiness #hardwork @linensandstrouds

Tools of the frontier! So I’ve been going through more outdoor equipment, specially related to the long hunter era. #twinhawksoutdoors #longhunter #flintlock #frontier #bushcraft

Today we're talking with Nate Bailey of BarebowHunters.com. Nate is a traditional archer and lover of all things traditional. His family was among some of the first pioneers to make the trip west, setting up a shop to service wagons and tools for those that would later come on the Oregon Trail. Seeking more time in the woods hunting anything he can and wanting to extend his reach, Nate recently completed a @traditionsfirearms Hawken kit. We talk with him about that process and more in this weeks episode of the Muzzle Blasts Podcast. #muzzleblasts #podcast #NMLRA #barebowhunters #tradlife #tradarchery #longhunter #muzzleloader #muzzleloading #blackpowder #longhuntersociety #longhunters #huntingseason #selfreliance #survival

Need inspiration? Bored at home? Find something to repurpose! Check out what @valleyreb used to make this cool mini fire kit! 👍🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 #Repost @valleyreb • • • • • Found an antique Gillette razor blade box that is now acting as my mini char/flint tin. I used one of my flintlock flints, so that it all fits in the 2 piece box. That together with my @firesteeldotcom striker makes for a great pocket kit Flint, steel, and char = fire!! (Sorry the fire took a second to get going it’s been pretty humid here) #longhunter #primativeskills #bushcrafttools #flintandsteel #firesteel steel #firemaking #selfreliance #wildcamping #bushcraft #bushcraftgear #survivalgear #woodsman #21stcenturylonghunter #teotwawki #apocalypse #oldways #secondchance #oldisnew #survivalkit #survival #antique #pathfinder #woodlore #fuego #chispas
