    I work at a University here in Iowa and talked a Art student into painting a Elk head on a custom rifle im building for my cousin. It is a surprise 71st birthday gift from his wife. The picture just don't do the art work justice. The stock is a Lone Wolf 100% carbon fiber, will be mounted under my single shot 338 snipe-tac rifle, 5.5x22 nightforce, 32" ABS carbon barrel, Titainum muzzel brake.

    I like how the Elk picture blends into the gel coat, Grey, Green, Black.

    Screech,

    I don't know for sure what her intentions are at this time. If anyone wants stuff done on stocks, ect. i will ask her. You have to clear coat the area to protect the art work. If anyone wants more info drop me an email.
