From the ad on their web site:
"This limited edition Trophy Tracker's Signature Series Rifle is a must-have for the serious hunter.
The rifle will feature 3 generations of signatures including Larry, Shane, Lanny, and Landon. Only 500
of each caliber are available. Serial Numbers will be issued on a first come, first serve basis."
Wonder why Lane isn't included on the signature list...?Did you know $500 will get your head blown off?
It will....ha, ha, ha

That's wild??? I'd like to know too.I always take life with a grain of salt, plus a slice of lime, and a shot of tequila.

Maybe he didn't want to be associated with the p.o.s. rip off. $2700 for that rifle, it's gotta be a joke.

that is bizarre. $2700 does seem a little ridiculous, even if it's a "signature series" gun..... I would like to find out why lanes name isn't on it though.

The Benoit Brothers (Lanny and Shane) have over 100 years of combined deer hunting experience. They grew up in Duxbury, Vermont and still live in the central Vermont area.

When I first saw that I figured Lane finally went his own way. They're a pretty independent bunch. Lane seems the most of all. Could be wrong though, no inside scoop.

Lane is in the process of starting a new gig with just him and his son Zeb.
Lanny and Shane are still doing what they have been in the past.

The Benoits spoke at a show last winter. They showed a video of their hunts. Man, they fill the air with lead. One shot-one kill is not their motto.
You can't argue with the results.
Kinda odd that Larry has killed so many great bucks with the rifle he first bought from a Sears catalog. Even with a custom Hart barrel $2700 is quite dear.
BTW my son gave me a knife that Larry Benoit made. It is beautiful and is one of the best gifts ever. He dropped almost $200 on it.
Needless to say, its never seen a gut pile.:)“If some animals are good at hunting and others are suitable for hunting, then the Gods must clearly smile on hunting”
