K Blayz. GG. Here are a few things I noticed - not everything all at once just some of the bigger things.

1) shift-click past hunts to herd them back into your town. try to get 2-3 extra hunts back to your town. Herd with only one villie to minimize walk time, and every 15 secs or so go back to that villie and shoot another hunt. Try not to keep shooting the same one to avoid killing them as you herd.
2) lean on that idle villie button, especially early
3) GJ with the wolves getting that CDB
4) age-up transition you get gold. I know you need for the rifles, but get the wood first b/c you can use right away and then get the gold with more guys later. market house and barracks were all delayed b/c you were getting the gold in an early trickle rather than a late flood.
5) what is your strat here? is this a defensive house boom with delayed rush? Such a strat is heavily dependent on scouting, so scout
6) do the rifles have stealth? Can you raid with them? standing troops are unutilized resources (sometimes necessary of course in a defensive boom)
7) micro-tips: use small groups of guys to focus fire. Like grab 10-12 guys and blast an xbow, then grab a different group and do it again. You will get a feel for the proper number. Also - get cav first, even with you lbows and rifles. move muskets too (you did this), but ignore the xbows for a minute.
8)you build a mill at 12 mins when you have wood and his head is down. xplore the map, pop down an outpost or two by some hunts and keep hunting. Mills are expensive and slow - although I use them if i'm being raided heavily b/c they are better than getting villies slaughtered.
9) add a barracks earlier - maybe 8-9 mins or so, or a stable
10) build trading posts, outposts for map control, something with all that wood, or switch guys to gold and get cav earlier
