I built a 50 cal hawkins from a kit when I was in high school.
I bought a bluing kit from a gun shop, it was a lot of work and the results were poor at best. What I would recomend is to prep the barrel and get it ready for blueing then take it to a reputable gunsmith for the bluing process.
Another option is traditional "browning" and I understand that this is a much easier process for the do-it yourselfer???
I made my flinter from the same kit that you are considering. They sure do make a fine rifle. Bluing is a little bit more tricky than browning a barrel. First you have to degreese your barrel repeatedly. I used dish soap and hot water, over and over. When I thought it was done, I cleaned it one more time. Then I used a cold bluing kit and submerged the barrel. It turned out quit well.
One of the most important components of deciphering a new hunting area is distinguishing between the summer and winter ranges for the game that you plan to pursue. Without knowing this you cannot make reliable assumptions about where the game will be come opening day. Knowing these areas will allow you to take the current weather (as well as the past couple weeks) and apply that to the landscape and make an educated guess as to where you might find that big buck or bull.
There are a couple ways...
