Ken Walkord of the Dalton Agency commissioned Steven Noble to create two unique illustrations for Talo Inc. for two of their limited special edition rifles that include both the "Ruger American Farmer Tribute" and the "The Ruger Talo Cattle Drive."
The artwork was created traditionally on scratchboard and then translated and etched directly onto the wood of the rifle. The wood consists of American walnut and is meticulously custom laser engraved. These illustrations are a tribute to both the contributions of the American farmer and Cattle Ranchers of America.
