Remington Arms recently partnered with Osceola Outdoors to take four young, up-and-coming hunters on an Osceola turkey hunt near Okeechobee, Fla. American Hunter was there to document the journeys of Jack Ellis, Hanna Earles, Grace Ainsworth and Jack Rickwalder. Get an inside look at their story with this video.
When Remington introduced its Versa Max semi-auto shotgun five years ago, hunters were impressed with its simple but effective VersaPort operating system that regulated the amount of gas required to cycle the action by using the length of the shotshell. Now the company has knocked about $400 off the MSRP to offer the more affordable Versa Max Sportsman, including one version made especially for turkey hunters.
