Old school hunting: European black powder fan still putting meat on the table with flintlocks (VIDEOS)

A Hungarian front-loader enthusiast takes to the field near Budapest to bag geese, stag and wild boar in some traditional hunting. The Cap and Ball channel first heads out for geese in a snow-covered field by a lake accompanied with a 20-gauge frizzen double barrel flintlock shotgun.

In the below, they take a stab at some red stag with a Pedersoli repro 1874 Sharps .45-70 and open sights.

Finally, looking to put some boar meat in the pot, he grabs a flintlock Jaeger rifle for the trifecta.
