Hi all and Happy New Year!

Bowhunters of Wyoming is once again raffling off a Commissioners Tag. This one for 2019. Please see attached flyer for information or ask questions on here. Also please note the 2nd and 3rd prize offered for the first time.

Once again, thank you to all Bowsiters as you guys are the ones that really make this thing work and allow us to complete many projects for Wyoming's wildlife, habitat and access. Thanks Pat for always being supportive of our efforts! Ron

Can you buy online? Can’t seem to find it or at least from my phone. Thanks

Thanks Ron I am in. Did you guys ever hear how the person did that bought all the tickets last year?

From: Z Barebow

I'm in and renewed my Bowhunters of Wyoming membership. Thanks for making it easy to renew.

Steve, I have not personally heard how the tag recipient fared last year. Maybe someone else will chime in?

I will keep everyone updated on ticket sales when I get the updates from the treasurer. Thanks for your support in the past and in the future.

hi just wondering if a person drew and wanted the elk tag are you still not allowed in wilderness areas if non-res.?

From: LUNG$HOT
02-Jan-19
Good question lamb, I’m betting on not allowed without an outfitter.

From: Bowboy
02-Jan-19
Lamb, yes you won't be allowed in wilderness unless you have guide or a resident friend with you. The resident must have documentation from the G&F as a resident guide.

From: LONEBULL
03-Jan-19
lamb, It's just for a tag. All other laws are still in effect we don't control any of that.

Any Buff tickets going to be available this year?

Thanks

Good luck, Robb

From: LONEBULL
09-Jan-19
The Buff license was a special deal that came about last year. I believe we can only get one of those in a lifetime but could be wrong. The V.P. (who's running for Pres. this year) worked really hard for a couple of years to get that one done.

From: Trial153
09-Jan-19
did the buffalo tag winner even us it? I think its was a guy from in mass and he said he couldn't make the hunt?

From: LONEBULL
09-Jan-19
I think he was looking to sell it last time I heard anything about it (which is legal).

From: BULELK1

The buff tag was sold as Joshua was unable to make it. I’m not sure who he sold the tag to.

From: Schmitty78

Got mine. Just a donation I’m sure, I never win anything! Fun to dream though!!

Bought my 2. Good cause in a state I love to hunt in.

From: TreeWalker
12-Jan-19
The contact with the buyer was made on here so may be an active member. That tag is valid though this month, correct?

From: Quinn @work
12-Jan-19
So are we far enough along in the sale of tickets to be assured that someone with deep pockets won't buy all the remaining tickets and give us 1-2 ticket guys a shot? I see there's a limit of 10 tickets per transaction but does anything stop someone from doing 40 transactions?

From: Lost Arra
12-Jan-19
I'm in for a bull. I recently bought a Stupid Tax Ticket (Powerball) and won $8 so I'm feeling very skilled at this type of drawing.

From: Z Barebow

Lost Arra- I refer to state lotteries as the “Redneck Retirement Program “

From: Ron Niziolek
15-Jan-19
I believe the buff tag is good through this month. Quinn, with better than 1/4 of tickets sold so far, I doubt deep pockets will jump in and try to sway the odds in their favor. If they want a tag that bad, I'm sure they would just get one in an auction now. That said, the limit is 10 tickets per transaction, so technically someone could purchase 10 in multiple transactions.

Thanks again everyone for your purchases! Ron

Bringing this back to the top. We still have plenty of tickets to sell. Here's a good chance to get in the game if you missed applying for a tag. For those that did apply, it's also a chance to win and have a second elk tag to hunt.

Thanks for the reminder Ron.

I've been so busy and getting other applications done/submitted, I kinda forgot to get my Raffle Tix!!!

Good luck, Robb

Picked up a few. If I draw I hope its transferable cause my wife really wants to shoot an elk. She wants an elk pretty bad and I've lucked out and got a couple good ones already.

Good luck to everyone in the draw.

From: Ron Niziolek
02-Feb-19
Branden, the tag is transferrable so your wife would be able to hunt if you transfer it to her. Thanks guys for buying tickets. We'll be funding many projects again this year thanks to everyone here.

@ Quinn - it shouldn't matter who buys how many tickets. If you buy 1 ticket, you have a 1 in 400 chance of winning. The odds of losing are 399/400 no matter if that means 399 guys or 1 guy with 399 tickets. Or am I missing something?

From: Mossyhorn
07-Feb-19
How many tickets did you have available last year?

From: Branden
07-Feb-19
Xbow I think he means if 100 tickets are sold to 100 guys and 300 tickets are sold to 1 guy the odds are the big spender will win. It doesn't change my odds like you explained. But for some reason most hunters are against guys that spend more then they do winning.

From: Gotta Hunt
07-Feb-19
I got my 2. It would be great to see a bowsiter win and post a good story about it. Either way good luck to everyone.

From: Trial153

The issue is the intent of the raffle is not only to garner revenue but to create awareness to the cause and a sense of involvement or stake in the issue or organization. Just look at bowsite for example, guys not only buy tickets they join and look foward to the opportunity to participate. If it's just about spending money then eff it and auction everything off to highest bidder. There is plenty of that going around and quite frankly in the end we will see it has done more harm then good.

From: Ron Niziolek
07-Feb-19
300 tickets is the most we've ever offered until this year. 100% of funds go right back to projects so we thought we'd reach for a little more revenue this year. Who knows if it will work, but that is BOW's goal.

Better get 'em now, before the non-ressy Draw results come out this week as they will go fast after the results!!

Good luck, Robb

The closer I look at my draw odds and point creep, the more I prefer my chances in the BOW raffle. Besides, I got two nice decals and a newsletter since I joined BOW. Wyo G&F sends me a partial refund.

From: Grasshopper

Put me down for one, that is all you need to win. Although after I draw I will need to figure out how to hunt in 2 elk units at the same time.
