LA27 – Terry Ehrhardt – Custom 280 Ackley Improved

Start with a pre-1964 Winchester Model 70 action, add a Krieger custom barrel, expertly fit that barrel to the action, chamber it in the ever popular .280 Ackley Improved, put it all into a piece of Exhibition Grade Walnut and you have a rifle anyone would be proud to own. This rifle represents literally hundreds of hours of painstaking labor from precision machining of the metal work to the transformation of a block of walnut into the stock you see here. Take a very close look at this example of the gunmakers art from the ebony forend tip to the skeleton grip cap and metal butt plate so expertly fit to the wood. The wood to metal fit throughout is a tribute to Terry Ehrhardt’s skill as a gun builder, comparable rifles have starting prices of $15,000. Add in a Kahles 3X9 scope and the package is complete. One more thing, it’s not just a pretty rifle, it is capable of sub MOA Groups, because a rifle that is not accurate isn’t worth owning. Don’t let this one of a kind rifle get away!!

LA33 – ‘Mountain Ram’ Framed Canvas Print from 2020 SCI Artist of the Year 

Clint Eagar is the 2020 SCI Artist of the Year. He painted this magnificent ram from a photograph taken by Photographer David Irwin. At the time of this photograph this amazing world record Bighorn Sheep ram was still alive. This is a 24”X32” Canvas print Edition 57/250. This Bighorn Sheep ram spent its life on Flathead Lake’s Wild Horse Island and boasts the largest horns ever recorded for the species. The ram, which wildlife biologists aged at 9 years old, died of natural causes and was discovered in the fall of 2016. The posthumous mass and girth of its full-curl horns and skull are an indication of the animal’s epic size in life. The horns’ final score was 216-3/8.
