Escort Introduces Three Pump Shotguns for Bird Hunters

The new pump-action FieldHunter, WS, and Youth Pump shotguns deliver affordable hunting performance for everything from turkeys to ducks.

Bentonville, AR (October 7, 2019) – Capitalizing on the dependability and affordability of the pump-action platform, Escort introduced three new shotguns for bird hunters. Whether you’re chasing a wild turkey tom or calling in the next gaggle of geese, the FieldHunter, WS, and Youth shotguns feature Escort’s reliable pump-action design and proof-tested barrels for the best in accuracy and reliability.

The FieldHunter is available in 12 or 20 gauge with a 3″ magnum chambering and a brass bead front sight, giving it maximum versatility across a wide variety of species. When turkey hunting, the FieldHunter can be configured with any number of fiber optic sights or optics thanks to an integral 11mm groove on the receiver and a standard 7mm vented barrel rib for mounting. For whitetail season, the  FieldHunter’s barrel can be swapped out with an optional rifled slug barrel, giving you the option to hunt four-legged or winged game with the same shotgun. The FieldHunter also comes with stock shims to adjust the drop and cast, providing a custom fit for every hunter. Likewise, a durable, synthetic stock and black anodized finish will stand up against inclement weather and decades of abuse in the duck blind.

The FieldHunter is also available in a Youth model, made specifically for smaller-framed shooters. 7″ shorter than the full-size FieldHunter, this Youth model features a 22″ barrel and smaller buttstock. The stock incorporates Escort’s recoil absorbing TrioPad with included length of pull spacers for just the right size fit.  The FieldHunter Youth is also considerably lighter, at 6.2 lbs., making it ideal for smaller hunters to carry in the field more easily. Available exclusively in the recoil-friendly 20 gauge, shooters of all sizes will have the confidence they need to conquer a variety of game hunting and shooting disciplines.  Like it’s full-size brother, the FieldHunter Youth comes with F, IM, M, IC, and CYL chokes and also includes a migratory bird plug for doves, ducks, and geese.

For hunters looking for a more classic look and feel, the WS delivers with a finely crafted Turkish walnut stock. The WS is available in  12 or 20 gauge with a 3″ chamber and features a brass front bead sight. The shotgun is capable of firing 3″ or 2¾” shells, as well as steel shot, which is an ideal pairing for upland game or waterfowl. The WS features a manual cross button safety and stock shims for maximum customizable adjustment to the shooter.
