Duck Camp - 2008 - Monte Vista, CO

By Charles S., Cripple Creek, Colorado

Duck Camp - 2008 - Monte Vista CO   This was the Cripple Creek - Victor contingent of our duck camp outside of Monte Vista. If you look closely, and use your imagination, you can spot at least three future members of Teller Rifles. Why are some of us holding newspapers? They're copies of the old Gold Camp Journal that had a feature where readers could take photos of themselves and the paper during vacations or travels away from home. Sort of a 'Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego' meme. This was our desperate attempt for attention. 

Duck hunting involves two hours of actual hunting each day. These are the so-called Golden Hours; an hour or so in the morning and again in the evening, when the birds are leaving or returning to their roosting areas. This is when they are concentrated and most of the action takes place. So what do you do with the rest of your time in camp? Probably the same thing hunters have done since the beginning: drink and tell war stories. Those were the days.

If you have photos of guns in your family, send them along with some narrative, and we'll be glad to share your heritage with info@teller-rifles.org.
