The way it was: One Shot sculpture --1975
May 20, 2013 - Staff
The 36th annual Lander One Shot Antelope Hunt was still months away in May of 1975 when officials of the organization greeted Wyoming Gov. Ed Herschler with a gift. It was a bronze sculpture by Jim Allard of Lander, depicting three antelope on the run.
The One Shot Past Shooters Club commissioned the artwork to be presented to Herschler, who was an enthusiastic participant in the annual mid-September event in Lander, as most Wyoming governors have been. Herschler asked that the bronze be displayed at the Wyoming State Art Gallery in Cheyenne.
One Shot leaders traveled to the Wyoming Capitol in Cheyenne to present the sculpture to the governor.
