Custom Carved Pheasant on a Remington 1100
This custom carving was done on an older Remington 1100 shotgun. The shotgun was made at least 35 years ago and back then the walnut stocks were all high quality and had great figure in the wood grain. This stock was no exception.
This shotgun had been used for years for upland game so a Pheasant design was the perfect choice. It was decided to carve this in an Inlaid style with no surrounding relief carving. This would show off, rather than cover up the beautiful wood grain.
The carving is a ringneck Pheasant busting out of cover at the corner of an old wooden split rail fenceline. The goal was to bring back a memory……the memory of the excitement ……the explosion of sounds that a big rooster makes busting out of cover when he erupts at your feet.
Memories of a hunt with your favorite dog…… of a hunt with your son or daughter……your first hunt with your father. These are the things a carving like this will do…..every time you pull out that shotgun or rifle the memories will come flooding back. That’s what a Family Heirloom is all about…Memories.
If you would be interested in a carving for your shotgun in this style, or any design you have in mind, drop me an email – lets discuss it.
