Our History

Tiger Hunt was founded in 1983
by Michael Barton out of an interest in gunbuilding.

Our Location
Tiger Hunt is ideally located in the best curly maple country in the world - the Allegheny Mountains of Western Pennsylvania. Here in our forests, a mix of northern and southern hardwoods grow in thin yet well-drained, rocky soil during a relatively short growing season. The result is dense, fine-grained hardwood which is not brash and chippy like wood originating from further north, nor does it have worm tracts like wood from milder climates.  Tiger Hunt has specialized in curly maple since the beginning, and although we carry of variety of other quality woods such as cherry, walnut, ash, and oak, our full-figured "tiger" gunstock blanks, made from Western Pennsylvania sugar maple, is what sets us apart.
