Rifle with Wildlife
Every time Ed shows this shot of the gun, people ask what kind of gun it is, or who did the engraving on the gun; the answer of course was that Ed Hoppe was the photographer, the engraving was done by Howard Grant a famous watch engraver for the Elgin Watch Company. Grant moved to Minocqua Wisconsin where he went from engraving watches to gun & firearm engravings, almost anything that needed to be detailed. Grant was really a talented man. The stock for the gun was engraved by a talented young man; Shane Caywood also from Minocqua WI. They both have passed on now and will be missed.
