What's the best way to maintain a wood stock from season to season? Last year I picked up a savage lightweight hunter with the wood stock and used it all deer season. Prior to the season while it was still brand new I added a coat of gunstock wax to help it repel water. Needless to say it took a beating from the snow, ice and being near the wood stove and I want to make sure it doesn't get dried out and/or crack down the road. The color of the stock faded quite a bit by the mag well from my glove being there. Overall the stock still feels good, it doesn't feel rough or dried out. I know virtually nothing about wood stock maintenance. What do you guys use as a "moisturizer" or treatment for storing your wood stock all summer until the next season? I searched around but I don't really come up with anything other than truoil which i'm under the impression is an entire new finish not just a surface protector.
