This past October, it was my turn to gaze at this wall of fame, alongside a group of guests that included acclaimed wildlife artist David Maass, DU Chairman of the Board John Tomke, and several other DU volunteers and members.
Having stayed at Sports Afield with Robinson and then the Wallins for nearly 30 years, Maass has found inspiration for countless paintings while hunting the marsh’s cattail points. When asked about his fondness for Delta Marsh and its people, the artist speaks to the uniqueness of the experience: “On top of the hunting, it’s the people, camaraderie, and tradition that keep me coming back to this special place year after year.”
