Louis Fauerbach 1860 - 1925, businessman, familyman, brewer, outdoorsman, duck hunter

Louie was an avid duck hunter. The images below show Louie with an LC Smith 12 ga. side-by-side shotgun at his family hunting land  on Cherokee Marsh near Madison, Wisconsin. Be sure to check out the gun today, and his duck boat gun bag which we reproduce and sell through our online gear store, and the "shot and a beer" poster we made as one of our bar signs - featuring Louie and buddy Walter Stock.

wet bag - dry and protected gun inside during rainy trip to blind
Raining hard.  Really pouring now - fowl weather for sure
This day started at 60 degrees with clouds and ended at 40 degrees and really honking. The winds got to 32 with 2 foot whitecaps. Getting off the river was tough. No way to go into the wind. Glad I had my Benelli Supernova shotgun in my duck boat gun case.   Serious gun protection.
It does not float nor does it have a zipper but it's indespensible.
