East Kentucky Bull Elk Tag Raffle

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to let everyone know that might be interested. Our N. Ky. Chapter #481 Quail Unlimited has been awarded a Bull Elk Tag by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Commission for the 2011 season. Commonly know as a Commissioner's Tag and is good for any zone and any legal weapon.

Our QU Chapter is going to raffle this tag which includes a shoulder mount. The only thing required is a non-resident hunting license if you should win. The non-resident elk permit fee ($365.00) has been waived. Tickets are being sold now and all proceeds will be used to further our conservation projects. There will be only 200 tickets sold and they are $100.00 per ticket. You can email or PM me if interested. Also, go to QU's website (www.qu.org) for verification if you would like. We did that so people would know that this is a legitimate project. More information is there and it is currently the 8th item down on QU's home page. Drawing will be no later than April 30 and sooner if all tickets are sold. Each person purchasing a ticket will be notified of the date, time and location of the drawing in the event they would like to attend. They will also be notified of the name, city and state of the winner. The winner will be notified by registered mail.

Good hunting to all, Robert Smith, N. Ky. Chapter #481 QU aka Oletrapper

Wow!  That's a heck of a deal.

Instead of auctioning this off to some big-wig with money, it's good to see that anyone that has $100 can have an equal chance at getting one of these elk tags.

And the Kentucky elk herd is a great success story, and would be an awesome hunt to take!

Good luck on the ticket sales and raising the money.  I bet you won't have many, if any raffle tickets left after just a week or so. Wink

yes, kentucky has done a great job with elk. they're even coming back to pennsylvania. I was waiting for the populations to merge in ohio somewhere, but i moved away.

at one time, i applied for a kentucky elk permit. kind of lost interest when i moved to wyoming though.

 

good luck with your raffle, that's a lot of money to go to conservation!

Tickets still available.

Good morning Stormm4, Sorry for the delay in answering your post. I have had computer problems for the last week or so and I'm just now getting caught up with things. To date, we have approx. 70 tickets available. If interested in one, please email me at thekysportsman@hughes.net and I will explain the process to obtain a ticket.

Thank you,

Yours in conservation, Robert Smith, N. Ky. Chapter #481 Quail Unlimited, aka Oletrapper

Many thanks

Many thanks to Big Game Hunt.net. Thumbs up

Our raffle is winding down and I just wanted to say thank you to all who have participated in helping make it a great success. 

Internet sales will end on April 21. because of mail delivery time. If we should happen to receive a check after the draw date, we will mark it void and return it to the entrant.

Thanks again,

Robert Smith, N. Ky. Chapter #481 Quail Unlimited

Thanks for the info

Thanks for sharing the information.  That would be a heck of a deal for anyone who won and the odds at 2% aren't bad.  I suppose you could even buy multiple entries if you wanted to and had teh funds available.....

Update on our Bull Elk Tag Raffle

Hello everyone, Just wanted to let everyone know how our Elk Tag Raffle went. Thanks to many that visit this site, our raffle was a great success.

 

Many thanks go out to BigGameHunt.net for allowing our post.

 

The winner of the raffle was Mark Tucker of Brooksville, KY. I called Mark when his ticket was pulled and he could not have been more excited. He told me he had tried for many years to save up money for a western elk hunting trip but every time he got close, something happened at home and had to use the money and he could not make the trip. Well, now he can go and not have to leave home. At least not very far from home.

Below, I have posted the financial report which was submitted to the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. Again, thanks to all who helped us make this fundraiser a great success.

Yours in conservation, Robert Smith, N. Ky Chapter #481 Quail Unlimited

Very nice!  Good work on

Very nice!  Good work on raising some money for a good cause, and congrats to the lucky hunter.

Funny thing is, he's saving that money for a hunt out west, and now he gets to hunt in his backyard.  Plus, given what I read from the Kentucky elk herd, he's probably got a much better shot at getting one there.  Success rates are great!!!
