Thirteen years ago my father and I went to Sports Authority in Knoxville to buy new guns to turkey hunt with. I got a Mossberg 835, he choose a Remington Express Super Mag. We only went a couple of times when we were drawn for the Chuck Swan hunt, neither of us ever got a turkey. Dad's health started getting bad, and we both stopped hunting. My dad has been gone over two years now, and I haven't been hunting in forever. My wife has been telling me I needed to go hunting again, it honestly has been tough for me to do that as I always went with dad and I just couldn't get excited about it anymore. This year I made a promise to myself that I would go, as it was something I enjoyed doing. A few weeks ago I dug out my Mossberg and noticed dad's Remington setting beside it. It then hit me that I could never hunt with him again, but I could use his shotgun and carry a piece of him with me. I hope to honor him by harvesting a turkey with his Remington someday, so I made a few changes to improve my odds.
I have added a Remington Sureshot stock and forearm in Mossy Oak Obsession camo, Remington scope mount, Mueller red dot sight, Primos Jelly Head choke tube, and will be shooting Hevi-13 3.5 #7 shot. Wish me luck, I know dad would approve...
