Passed down to you!

Postby swpatrkyhunter » March 2nd, 2009, 9:52 am

For alot of us here hunting is something that has been passed down from Father to son. Along with that guns and other family heirlooms are passed as well. For me I have a single shot shotgun, hunting jacket, knives, and a 30.-06 that were pased down to me from my Grandfather. Also alot of knowledge. What are some of the things that have been passed down to you that you cherish?

I have a two cedar box calls my father made, his old side by side bird gun along with lots and lots of good memories and lessons learned.

I have an old 303 British Carbine that was my Grandfathers. He always used it in deer season and got quite a few deer with it.

I have a double barrel L.C. Smith from my grandfather that he bought used in 1914.I don't know how old it is.I also have my dad's old Lynch box call made in 1958.Last Christmas,my cousin gave me a treebark jacket that belonged to my late uncle.He was very special to me and was with me when I killed my first turkey back in the early 70's.

My father didn't hunt, but both grandfathers did. I got a 16 ga. pump Ranger shotgun (1910 or so) and a well used K-bar skinning knife from one, a recurve bow and a 20 ga. Remington 870 with a 5 digit serial number from the other.  Both saw the hunter in me and would take me fishing, shooting, or walking in the woods & fields whenever I would visit.

My first gun was passed down from my dad and it was his first gun as well. It is a "Volunteer" .410 that is now about 90 years old. It has since been passed through my younger brother, my son and now my grandson has it. I also have a JC Higgins side by side 16 that was my dad's. As mentioned by others, I have numerous precious memories of hunts with my dad and granddad. I still hunt my granddad's old place and cherish every day that I get to do that.
