One Shot Hunt arrivals - 1969Sep 24, 2017 From archives
The Lander One Shot Antelope Hunt has a history of attracting celebrities from sports and entertainment, and the 1969 edition attracted its share.
NASA astronauts Jim McDivitt, Rusty Schweikart and Wally Schirra all participated, continuing a pattern of interest in the hunt from the astronaut corps.
Actor Robert Fuller, star of the TV series "Wagon Train," "Laramie" and, later, "Emergency" was on hand that year as well.
For many years, the celebrities and government officials coming in for the hunt flew in to Riverton Regional Airport, where they were greeted by spectators, other hunters and One Shot officials before being chauffeured to Lander for the hunt festivities.
