The way it was: One Shot sculpture -- 1975 (take 2)

May 26, 2013 - From staff reports

Many readers caught an error in last week's "The Way It Was" photo caption, which identified one of the men as Chuck Guschewsky of Lander. In fact it was Jim Guschewsky. He was president of the Lander One Shot Antelope Hunt Past Shooters Club in 1975 when Gov. Ed Herschler accepted a sculpture created by artist Jim Allard in appreciation for the governor's enthusiasm in supporting and participating in the Lander fall hunting tradition.

The Past Shooters Club commissioned the sculpture, and it was given to the governor in mid-May.

Herschler, the only three-term governor in Wyoming's history, was in his first year in office at the time of the presentation at the Wyoming Capitol.

The bronze depicted antelope running, and the governor instructed the Wyoming State Art Gallery in Cheyenne to display it after the One Shot dignitaries returned to Lander.
