Buckmasters GunHunter Magazine interviews Doug Koenig

10MInutes-promoIn February, I was interviewed by Larry Teague from Buckmasters GunHunter Magazine for a quick Q&A spotlight for their March 2016 issue. Here is one of my answers.

Is it true you took your first muzzleloader deer with a flintlock?

Yes. In Pennsylvania where I live and grew up, we have to use a flintlock during the muzzleloader season. I think I was probably 16 or 17 when I shot my first deer with a flinter. He was a wide 10-pointer with really short tines, an older deer going downhill. He was bigger when I first saw him the previous season.
