This is one incredible 80-year-old gun, and it downed a turkey just like it ought to.
Lots of hunters have received guns from their fathers, grandfathers, or even beyond. The great thing about firearms is, if they’re well-made, they’re going to last a long time, and still be perfectly effective in their old age.
When Mark Drury was young, his Grandpa Ritter gave him this Stevens to use for shooting competitions. He dusts off that old gun for a turkey hunt in spring 2017, and comes up huge.
The cover wasn’t great on this hunt, but they made it work and found success. What a cool story!
