    Shotgun Stock

    Here is a shotgun stock I carved for myself late last year during the winter. The wood came from Mike1950 yes the old coger . Tried to keep it simple as always. Its a White tail an doe on Grassy Mountain on my land in North Georgia .


    Its a 12 Gage shotgun my granddad gave me when I was 5, killed my first 12 point with it an a Doe when I was 7, but the stock broke on it when I was hunting on Grassy Mountain so I decided to replace it last year an retire the gun its over 65 years old an I will pass it down to one of the grandkids when its time. I have done several carvings on gunstocks for a lot of clients but this is the first for myself

    Neat. What kind of tool did you use for the stipling?

    I've got a .308 with a carved stock, but I like the look of yours better. I don't know who carved mine...it's a gun my dad acquired in a horse trade when I was a kid. (And it really was a horse trade. He traded a horse for the gun and some cash.)
