The way it was: One Shot hunters -- 1973

Sep 15, 2013 - Staff

The Lander One Shot Antelope attracted its typically impressive guest list in 1973, including a high-powered trio from Connecticut.

At left was Robert C. Jeuba, who at the time was the legal counsel to the Governor of Connecticut.

Wearing the hat was George A. Chandler, president of the Winchester Repeating Arms Co., maker of the famed Winchester rifles and shotguns. Winchester was headquartered in New Haven, Conn., where it and Yale University were two of the largest employers in the state.

Second from right was Connecticut Gov. Thomas J. Meskill. Serving as the Connecticut team's guide that year was Dr. Brian Miracle of Lander, right.

While most One Shot teams flew Frontier Airlines to Riverton Regional Airport, the Connecticut group jetted straight to Hunt Field in Lander on Chandler's Saberliner jet, partially visible in the background.

The four were pictured on Sept. 14, 1973
