One Shot Antelope Hunt…Only in Wyoming!

23 Sep

Last weekend Rawhide Studio set up its jewelry display in a beautiful barn in Lander Wyoming. Why did we drive 4 hours North? For the One Shot Antelope Hunt’s ladies luncheon and show of course!  The show was only a few hours long but sales and interest were brisk! The weather was absolutely gorgeous, the group was friendly and the Dutch oven lunch was outstanding!  What more could you ask for? Well….. as far as Dave is concerned, FISHING  and he did that too in some world class streams!

Lander and One Shot History:

Harold Evans of Lander Wyoming formed a committee in 1940 and by that Fall the One Shot Antelope Hunt was off and running. Today’s hunt is made up of  8 teams of three and always starts on the first day of antelope hunting season. Since that first hunt, the event has gained national attention and attracted hunters and famous folks like diplomats, astronauts and entertainers who all make their way to the small but beautiful town of Lander Wyoming. Lander is also the home of  the National Outdoor Leadership School otherwise known as NOLS (these are the folks that are more interested in mountain climbing, biking, spandex and dehydrated food). Even if you don’t like hunting, if you get to Wyoming, Lander is worth a visit. There is also Sinks Canyon State Park to visit and hike. If you are going to Lander be sure to give us a call and stop by the studio and say HI!

Absaroka Western Designs and Tannery

When we say Rawhide Studio is Wyoming made we really mean it! Since the beginning we have tried to find a local source for our rawhide. When we searched the internet and came across Absaroka Western Designs in Dubois WY, we knew we had to make the 5 hour trek to see what the place had to offer. When we arrived at the shop we met the owner Joe Brandl and explained that we made jewelry out of rawhide and were looking for a Wyoming source. He took us through his workshop and then showed us some of his antelope and elk hides. We sorted through them, purchased a few and headed back to our campsite excited about our find! Of course the trip had to include some fishing for Dave and we made a connection with a gallery in Dubois called Pony Tracks.  All and all a great trip to a beautiful part of Wyoming!
