Latest Updates on Hunt The West
Upcoming Raffles For Colorado Sheep, Goat, and Antelope
March 5, 2009.
Every year, the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Society sponsors a raffle for a Colorado Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep tag and a Colorado Rocky Mountain Goat tag.
Colorado has excellent trophy quality and great numbers for both species, as well as several great outfitters to help you find them.
Additionally, they will be offering a raffle this year for a Colorado statewide antelope tag. Only 500 tickets will be available for the antelope license.
Rules for the raffle and the winning licenses are attractive:
- Can be used during any open season or during all open seasons in an open area
- Is valid in any hunting area in Colorado provided the season is open and you hunt by the method specified for that specific area (i.e., archery/rifle)
- Tickets are $25 each and you may purchase a maximum of 25 tickets
- EXTENDED SEASON DATES for auction and raffle hunters ONLY all units are now open until December 31, 2009
In 2008, 2,504 sheep tickets were sold and 761 goat tickets were sold.
Buying tickets in 2009 will let you help out a good cause and avoid having to accumulate years of preference points that would otherwise be required to have a shot at tags like this.
Given the current state of the economy, I believe that participation in raffles is very likely to be lower than in past years. That means better odds for those who do participate. This is the year to enter raffles.
The drawings will be held during the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Society Annual Banquet, Saturday, May 2, 2009, at 7:00 p.m. Winners do not have to be present at drawing.
To order tickets and for more information on these and other raffles, see the website of the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Society.
Good luck and thanks for supporting a good cause ....
