Jackie Smith was hunting near Mullan, Idaho and was waiting patiently to fill her elk tag. When a turn of events brought her a shot at a lone wolf, she took it. A lone wolf had walked into the clearing where Smith had a clear shot. She pulled back on her bow, released it, and downed the wolf.
Smith was hoping for an elk that she could enter into the News-Press hunting contest, but she entered the wolf instead. Smith had never seen a wolf in the wild before, and was excited with this one.
After winning the raffle, Smith will now have a brand new Mossberg Model #28860 bolt action rifle with a scope, Weaver Style base, top load magazine and 22-inch Matte Blue Barrel come bear hunting season in the spring.
Smith is hoping that it will be ready for her spring bear hunt. She plans on entering the contest again next year. She has entered for the past six years, but this was her first lucky raffle win. From Shoshone News Press .
