For the first time since 1940, women will be competing in the 2021 Lander One-Shot Antelope Hunt.

For reasons left to legends of the old hunt, only men were selected to be on teams that competed in the hunt until now. The One-Shot has often been called the Super Bowl of Shooting Sports. Over the years, it has featured hundreds of governors, U. S. senators, celebrities, astronauts and business leaders.

On Thursday, the One-Shot Antelope Hunt Club Board of Directors encouraged sportswomen and sportsmen to apply to be on new teams for the 2021 Hunt.

Darin Hubble, President of the One-Shot Antelope Hunt Club, states, “The organizations look forward to having sportswomen participate as team members.”

Hubble also indicated the teams of three shooters could be a combination of men and women, all men or all women.

Historically, women have played tremendous roles in the hunt. Many women have hunted with their husbands, served as guides and have always been at the range participating in shooting sports during the hunt.

Information on becoming a new team/team member is located online at New team members are selected and qualified to be on a new team based on their ability to support the conservation work of Water for Wildlife® Foundation, sportsmanship and the desire to become affiliated with members who enjoy big game hunting.

The One-Shot Antelope Hunt has been hosted by 16 consecutive Wyoming Governors. It brings with it a very large economic impact for the city of Lander and wildlife conservation work in Wyoming.

The organizations are looking forward to supporting and encouraging women in the sports of hunting and shooting.
