I have hunted deer (no luck) and hogs (some luck) in the Everglades and South Florida's wildlife preserves, during BLACK POWDER season.. I carried a T/C Renegade .54 cal and a Lyman .54 cal pistol. But not flint, as the humidity is almost to much for black powder,, (lost a beautiful 8 point to an early morning mist, FTF, re-capped, FTF, re-capped, FTF,, I gave up),, It would be near impossible for flint.

I would suggest you work with your laws and barrow one of their smoke poles this first time out.. Get mucho practice shooting. The delay in ignition can be a real eye opener.. Loading not so much..

Good Luck..
