Thank you. This was great input! 
Stinkyonions: the mix you mention here is very near to my own thinking, and pheelgood – mahogny is ok, it is in the brownish sektion. Green stain mentolio…… Not sure about that on this particular stock. You see, I have this obsession with recreating the wildcat fur in the stock. The shifting dark/light brownyellow in the wildcat would be nice. 
So what have I have done today?
COFFEE.  Instant coffee. VERY strong. Moistened the stock with it and sanding with 400 paper afterwards. 
And YES, I can see the wildcat is coming out of the wood now. But I need some yellow, and will follow stinky’s advise and add some “new maple” or similar.
more to come.

-yes a pic of that coffe moistened stock (second round):
