My kind of hunting rifle ideally looks pretty much exactly like this, old school wood and blue steel. Preferably in a big bore caliber like this 9,3x62 or even .30-06 which is my all time favourite, but also I like the .45-70 but at the moment I don't have one. I think I ought to, maybe some day again I will.
Style and good looks is nice but there's also situations when straight practical qualities comes first. Nothing can actually replace a beautiful classic made with attention to detail and with a high grade of finish but still, something that you don't need to be as careful with has its advantages too.
It's like using a gun like this, with open iron sights, made of beautifully blued steel. It's an entire thing itself. Then again a scoped one in a plastic stock might be the tool of preference under different circumstances.
Therefore one should have both, or more, because hunting adventures can be so very different.
Number one question we get here......”How durable is it?” We like to let this heavy duty wire brush do the talking. We use ALL automotive grade products, and everything we dip gets an automotive grade clear coat over the top. Gloss or Matte, depending on customer preference and application. This is a @grayboe stock dipped in @kuiu_official Vias, coated with our specially formulated matte finish clear.

I bought these scope covers almost a year ago and had them on a rifle I barely shot. Put them on my daily shooter to really test them out. The AAD mount covers are supposed to be the toughest ones out there.
There's nothing as peaceful as a night out deer hunting, all alone in nature with all your senses on edge, but in a naturally relaxed way. I'd call it real awareness.
Just sit there, watch the skies go by, listen to nothing, just intensely listening to the stillness. Sometimes I even let game pass by, it's such a grand experience to get that close without more action than the tension in the air itself. Just watching, being, consuming moments of prirstine awe. Sometimes moments like that rewards more than everything else.
