Bozeman Watch Company to Release the Huntsman Automatic in remembrance of a true gentleman
Bozeman Watch Company to Release the Huntsman Automatic in remembrance of a true gentleman – Jim Tebben of the Huntsman Hunt Club in Dryden Michigan
Everyone has a favorite place where memories are formed that offers peace and enjoyment simply by just being there. The Huntsman Hunt Club of Dryden Michigan is just such a place for CEO Christopher Wardle. He looks back at the many chilly mornings before a hunt, sitting by a stoked up fire, drinking strong coffee with friends while anticipating delightful culinary creations like smoked salmon scrambled eggs, home cured bacon and fresh jam and biscuits to come out of the lodges kitchen. The generations old hunting estate, which was originally a small farm house and several old red barns, has been lovingly transformed over the years when the owners, Jim and Mary Beth Tebben added an Amish built timber framed addition. Each massive fireplace uses stone harvested from the property which bear the names of employees and family on the back sides prior to being set. The timber throughout is also harvested from the property and milled by the Amish who built the entire addition by hand. Walking in the door and seeing a restored old horse carriage in the middle of the common room and leather belted ceiling fans gives one a feeling of an earlier time when things were simpler and less meant more. But while many places can be warm and inviting on a brisk fall morning, Christopher recites “the warmth always came from the Tebbens and their staff. They are always inviting, kind and quick to care for their guests and friends. It is a culture one doesn’t see much nowadays. Jim, always had a kind word and if anyone was made for the part of a Huntsman, it was Jim. He even looked the role with his Muck boots and wind-blown hair.”
Jim Tebben's life ended tragically in 2012 and the only thing Christopher Wardle could do to honor his memory and that of his kind and gentle nature was to pay homage to him with the Huntsman.
