This was a fun project – simple folk art style rustic whitetail deer scene to mount and display and old shotgun at my hunting club. A great wall hanger gun – we esthetically restored it and left it with the main springs long past their useful life. Just made for a nice display of one of the founding member’s favorite old shotguns.
I love old wall hangers – one of these days I’ll get around to carving the batch of them I have left in the safe. I think there’s seven or eight single barrel/shot misc gauge shotguns. I figured on carving the stocks, making a nice display rack of some sort. We’ll see … when I retire one day!
