For those that have helped BOW in the past with our commissioner tag raffle I'm giving advanced warning that we were awarded a Bison tag (just found out today) and we will be selling raffle tickets for a bison tag very soon!!!!! The drawing is July 9th so it will happen fast. All the details are being worked out even as I'm writing this so keep in touch for the details. Thanks. Jeff Capron

INDBowhunter2, No restrictions if you win, play away!!

16-May-18
Cool! Hope it is similar odds to the previous raffles. Count me in.

From: LONEBULL
16-May-18
It's looking like it will be very similar to our previous Commissioner tag raffles. Thanks.

From: Waterfowler
16-May-18
Please update here when tickets are available. Very interested.

From: Ron Niziolek
16-May-18
No additional fees to the winner. Winner can sell or give the tag to another. Any legal firearm or bow. Hunter's choice of bison areas. Does not count toward the once-in-a-lifetime restriction. Winner will be contacted by phone or email on July 9, 2018.

We will update with any additional information but please spread the word.

From: BULELK1
17-May-18
I have been asked by a couple fellow bowsiters if this Raffle is like the Wyoming state Raffle as in you Win the Raffle but it doesn't include the tag, you have to Pay for the tag.

I told them I Do Not know if it is the same.

Any clarification?

Thank you

Good luck, Robb

From: wytex

I'm betting it is a governors tag. They are considered Complementary licenses, I believe that means you get the license, do not have to buy it.https://wgfd.wyo.gov/WGFD/media/content/PDF/Licensing/GOVERNOR_LICENSE_INFO.pdf

From: LONEBULL
17-May-18
Like Ron stated no additional fees except for conservation stamp and refuge permit if hunting on the refuge. I think tickets will be $50.00 so everyone can afford it. Hoping to have final details by the end of the week. Thanks.

From: Treeline
17-May-18
Awesome, guys! Great news and looking forward to jumping in!

From: Ambush
17-May-18
Open to Canadians to, eh?

From: Sean D.
17-May-18
How many tickets are you selling and is there a limit on this one?

From: Treeline
17-May-18
Fer sure Ambush. Betcha would even be able to round up help from several guys here if you win!

From: Ambush
17-May-18
That would be great Tavis! And since I can only take forty pounds of meat across the border, partners divy up the rest. One huge Bowsite Bison BBQ before I go though!!

From: BULELK1
18-May-18
Thank you for the follow-up

Good luck, Robb

From: LONEBULL
18-May-18
Sean D. Final ticket #'s aren't set yet and yes it looks like there will be a limit. Bear with us many members of the Executive council are at outdoor expos (one in Casper and one in Lander) through Saturday so it might be next week until it gets up and going. Thanks.

From: Ucsdryder
18-May-18
It would awesome to get first release on bowsite. Or maybe give us an update of exactly when it will be released. Let’s get a bowsiter to win so we can get a semi live hunt!

From: LONEBULL

Should be ready to go tomorrow. $50.00 tickets, only 500 tickets to be sold. Will have to buy them off our web site. We raised the # from our normal Commissioner tag raffle because this is pretty unique to have a bison tag and we only receive 30% of the profit to use on our projects. The other 70% goes to the Wyoming Wildlife Foundation so all the money still goes to Wyoming wildlife and habitat. Thanks and good luck to everyone.

Here is the information regarding the Bison Tag Raffle. Tickets will be available on the Bowhunters of Wyoming website beginning tomorrow morning. The more participation we get, the more funding we can provide for Wyoming's wildlife. We would greatly appreciate any shares to other forums. Good luck! Ron

22-May-18
Does the hunt have to be completed in 2018? Or can it go into January 2019 like the normal bison season?

From: Ron Niziolek
22-May-18
It is for the season, not the calendar year.

From: wkochevar
22-May-18
Is there a time that they go on sale tomorrow, i.e., 8 am, at midnight, local?? Thx

From: BowmanMD
22-May-18
Tax deductible?

22-May-18
Do we know what time they go on sale?

Looking at the regs, there's no tags for unit 1. Can you hunt in unit 1 with this tag?

From: BULELK1

23-May-18
If you win get in touch with Ron Niziolek and I, we will point you in the right direction, but I'm really hoping I win :)

From: Drnaln

My receipt just has an Order #, No ticket number...Wonder if I did something wrong?

From: ohiohunter
23-May-18
You'll get 2 emails, one confirmation and the other a thank you. The thank you email has your ticket #.

From: Drnaln
23-May-18
No ticket numbers on my Thank You email...Just an Order #

From: wytex
23-May-18
I checked with them, ticket numbers are not the order number. 130 have been sold as of bit ago.

From: Dotman
23-May-18
Yeah my thank you only has order number, assumed that was ticket number. Also what’s up with the $2 shipping or do they mail the stubs?

From: LONEBULL
23-May-18
Mailing back to you and credit card fees is the $2.00.

From: LBshooter
23-May-18
What are the odds of drawing a tag for bison?

From: LONEBULL
23-May-18
I think for a bull tag it was 5.6% draw rate this year. If I remember correctly.

From: Ron Niziolek
23-May-18
You may (and will want to) hunt unit 3 with this tag. Draw odds were less than 1%. It hasn't been hunted in years and has multiple mature bulls.

From: Trial153
23-May-18
In...

From: Dotman
23-May-18
Thanks Lonebull, that makes sense.

From: HUNT MAN
23-May-18
Man I hope a bowsiter wins!!!!

From: bghunter
23-May-18
Well my luck is not that great, but Bison is a dream animal. Just got my ticket and fingers crossed. Good luck to all

From: TEmbry
23-May-18
I need this tag like I need another hole in my head this fall.... so naturally I put in my name as well lol

From: BULELK1
24-May-18

Quite a few available still. As of last night we had sold 181tickets (not bad for the first day) I hope we sell them all !!! It's just a win for wildlife that way. I know my odds go down but I won the Yetti cooler at the BOW banquet a couple of years ago with only a couple of tickets in the bucket so it could happen. Keep the faith everyone.

From: LBshooter
25-May-18
I thought my ticket number was 389 but that was my order number. Just got an e,pmail this am and my ticket number is 116. Check your emails to see your actual ticket number it may not be the one you got after buying your entry.

From: CPAhunter
