Ole John Pruitt got 'er done!
« on: April 05, 2021, 01:38:09 PM »


My dear friend, John Pruitt, killed this fine gobbler on his place in east-central Tennessee last Saturday afternoon. If you've seen many of my posts, you probably know that John is a skilled gunsmith and bowyer and can crank either one out in short order. He made the gun you see in the photo. I know it has a 42" Colerain turkey choked barrel in 62 caliber and a rear peep sight because he made me one with those as well. John is 80 years old and still going strong so I just had to brag on him a little.

Your buddy, John, is a caution, for sure...

Been a few years since you posted a pic of him...

He's a marvel, for sure!
