Snowy and Cold for 47th Two Shot this Week

2 Shot 1


The National Weather Service in Pueblo is predicting southeast Colorado will see high temperatures only in the teens and a chance of snow towards the end of the week.  The hunters coming to Lamar for the 47th Annual Southeast Colorado Celebrity Goose Hunt will need to dress warmly. 

Hunters from across the country, including several noted pro sports celebrities, will be headquartered for another year at the Rodeway Cow Palace Inn, beginning this Wednesday, December 4th for the annual President’s Reception.  The evening is open to the public, but you must be at least 21 to attend for complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.  The evening is a meet and greet event which includes a live and silent auction and a Calcutta.  The auction funds are used for conservation purposes as well as some local charities. 

Baseball Hall of Famer relief pitcher Richard “Goose” Gossage is returning for another hunt.  Gossage planed pro baseball for 22 years with the Yankees and Padres and was inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008.  Another returnee is Dave Studdard, a Broncos tackle who played with the team from 1979 to 1986.  Ralph Tamm, another NFL standout is coming back.  Tamm played for the Redskins and 49ers and played on two Super Bowl Championship teams.  Tim Lollar is also joining the sports celebrities taking part in the hunt.  Lollar played ball for the Padres, White and Red Sox and the Yankees during his six years as a pitcher. 

Friday activities include a combination of upland game hunting and a sporting clay shoot in the morning and afternoon, followed by a guide and landowners reception.  The annual hunt is capped with a Friday evening banquet and awards ceremony.
