Arizona "Super Raffle" Deadline Extended
June 30, 2009.
From Arizona Game and Fish:
You still have a chance to win one of the nation’s most prestigious hunts -- the Arizona Big Game Super Raffle deadline for 2009 has been extended to July 12.
Here’s your chance to win one of Arizona’s 10 top hunts, while also contributing to wildlife conservation. It’s a win-win for everyone. But Super Raffle mail orders must be received by July 12 and online orders will be accepted at the Arizona Gig Game Super Raffle Web site until 10 p.m. July 12.
The big game tags available in the raffle are for 365 days of hunting almost anywhere in the state during the 2009-2010 hunting season, and ticket prices range from $5 to $25. Raffle tickets are offered for the following species:
- Desert Bighorn Sheep
- Turkey (Merriam’s or Goulds)
- Coues Whitetail
- Mule Deer
- Black Bear
- Mountain Lion
You can also get tickets for the “Swarovski Optics Package” valued at more than $5,000. The money raised from the optics package is used to defray the costs of the raffle itself. All the money raised from the hunt raffle tickets goes directly to wildlife management efforts.
Arizona offers some of the best trophy opportunities in North America for each of these species. A quick review of both the Boone & Crockett and Pope & Young record books will confirm this.
If you are after a truly huge mule deer, elk, antelope, Coues deer, desert bighorn sheep, or buffalo, then Arizona is where you need to be. The only huntable population of Gould's turkeys in the United States exists in southern Arizona and can be hunted with the raffled turkey tag.
