Default Hunter memorial

My good friend passed away and he was a very avid hunter. He was 15 and for Christmas id like to do something for his parents. I'm thinking of getting a rifle engraved with something nice for him. Id like to find a good short poem about hunting or hunters. If anyone knows a good one please let me know. Again id like to keep it short so it fits on the gun. Thanks

I don't know of any poem that would fit on a rifle. Are you getting it for yourself in his memory or to give to his parents?

Maybe just a simple RIP and his name would be the way to go for what you're talking about, as it would be pretty easy to do by engraving on the metal or into the stock by someone who knows what they're doing. You're idea is unique and quite nice for what sounds like a youngster the same age as the deceased.

Yeah I was thinking about that to. I don't know what I'm gonna do yet I guess I just wanted some more opinions on it.

What I did when my father passed away was take some of his ashes and make sure all his kids, grandkids and hunting friends got some. Here's how I did that:

I took some of the empty brass from his 7mm Mag and cleaned them up in a case tumbler after I neck sized them. I put a small wad of cotton into the cases and them put his ashes in and sealed them with a bullet. I then put a small eye screw into the primer hole so they can be hung up and I engraved his initials in the brass.

I gave them to the people and everyone of them hung them on the rear view mirrors of their cars and trucks. So, now Pop still gets to go hunting and fishing with his family and friends every time they go. I find a lot of comfort knowing he is still in the woods with me.

An engraved firearm may be something te father would understand but what about the mother. Perhaps you could plant a tre on public hunting grounds with a plaque dedicating the tree to your friend. That tree and plaque would be there for a long time as a memorial to your friend for all to see, not just his family.
