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

01-Jan-19
Can you buy online? Can’t seem to find it or at least from my phone. Thanks

01-Jan-19
Ok figured it out. I am in. 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
01-Jan-19
I'm in and renewed my Bowhunters of Wyoming membership. Thanks for making it easy to renew.

From: Ron Niziolek
01-Jan-19
Steve, I have not personally heard how the tag recipient fared last year. Maybe someone else will chime in?

Perfect!!

Thanks for the heads-up Ron

Good luck, Robb

From: LONEBULL

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.

From: lamb
02-Jan-19
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

Thanks for the follow-up on the Buff raffle Jeff.

Two more just now:-)

Good luck to everyone in the drawing!

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

From: Schmitty78
10-Jan-19
Got mine. Just a donation I’m sure, I never win anything! Fun to dream though!!

11-Jan-19
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
12-Jan-19
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

From: Ron Niziolek
01-Feb-19
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.

From: BULELK1
02-Feb-19
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

From: T Rex
02-Feb-19
Just entered! Thanks for the reminder

From: Branden
02-Feb-19
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.

From: BULELK1

Thank you to those that have purchased tickets, we appreciate it.

From: XbowfromNY
07-Feb-19
@ 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
07-Feb-19
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

From: Lost Arra
17-Feb-19
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
18-Feb-19
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.

From: BULELK1
18-Feb-19
I think you can use both tags in the same unit Steve, geez, I wonder which unit that would be!! haha

2 of my most Fav hunters are Guest Speakers @ the Banquet.

Some Guy named Lou-----------> <;-) (or is that an old Johnny Cash song?)

And the guy most of us grew up watching and learning from ~~Wayne Carlton!

Good luck, Robb

From: LONEBULL
18-Feb-19
Grasshopper you can use this tag in the same area as the one you applied for, no problem there. Lost Arra thanks for becoming a member as well as supporting the raffle. Robb, should be a great banquet with the speakers and everything else lining up nicely!! We were told Wayne won't be doing very many more speaking engagements so we are delighted to have him again. Thanks for everyone's support.

From: LONEBULL
20-Feb-19
206 tickets sold so far. We usually sell quite a few after the non-resident elk draw so hopefully that trend continues. Thanks again everyone.

From: LONEBULL
21-Feb-19
Well for those that didn't draw here's still your chance!!!! And for those that did draw you can win this one and have two tags in your pocket to fill.

From: BULELK1
22-Feb-19
I got mine #193 & my Renewal membership last week, so they are selling more now!

Good luck, Robb

From: wilbur
22-Feb-19
Is it legal to have two tags for elk during the same year in Wyoming?

From: LONEBULL
22-Feb-19
Wilbur, Yes!!!!! With this tag it's perfectly legal.

From: wilbur
22-Feb-19
Great, that would certainly make for an eventful year of elk hunting.

Thanks for the info.

From: SteveB
23-Feb-19
Mine was ticket #58. I heard that’s the winning number - but go ahead and buy some anyway they need the support!

From: leo17
24-Feb-19
just picked up 2!!!!! does this work statewide and do you have to declare the unit that you wish to hunt in?

From: pav
24-Feb-19
I'm in....can't win if you don't play!

From: LONEBULL
24-Feb-19
They are statewide and yes you must declare an area to use it in. See the specific rules in Ron's original post. Thanks.

From: Shaft
24-Feb-19
Done and excited to send my money to Wyoming. 100% of the money used judiciously. I can't say the same for my Native Utah. I think by the time all of the "Administrative fees" and "processing fees" that are done in the name of our "Conservation and Convention tags" that end up in the hands of our so called "sportsman groups" using those means we are lucky to get 80% of the money to actually have a meaningful impact let alone hit the ground. Thank you Bowhunters of Wyoming for the example.

Im in. Just one question though. Is your order number your ticket number I take it? The reason I ask is my order was 736 and I thought there was only 400 to sold. Just asking....

From: Ron Niziolek

You will receive another email with your actual ticket number. Thanks for the support!

From: LONEBULL

What is the last day one can buy raffle tickets?

From: XbowfromNY
04-Mar-19
When is the last day to buy tix and when is the drawing?

From: LONEBULL
04-Mar-19
Drawing is March 23rd. at the banquet in Cheyenne probably around 8:00 pm. I would say the last day to do the on-line would be March 21st since the Treasurer will be traveling on the 22nd and setting up for the banquet. We could probably do a credit card over the phone from the banquet (on the22nd/ 23rd) but don't quote me on that. Thanks.

From: Shrewski
07-Mar-19
This was almost to the bottom of the page. WY Bowhunters puts ALL the money to the wildlife, these need to get sold out.

From: LONEBULL
08-Mar-19
Other items that have tickets available as well that will drawn the same night are a Bowtech bow, a Yellowstone longbow, a Pronghorn longbow and a Yeti cooler but the money from this tag is all earmarked for conservation.

From: Bob

Just got one for myself and one for a friend. B.O.W. is a great organization that supports our passion. Lets get these tickets sold !

From: swampyankee

From: LONEBULL

From: Riplip

Just bought another, great cause and someones gotta win. Curious if you sell these tickets at the actual banquet as well. My ticket number was 280 so still a few left.

From: LONEBULL
11-Mar-19
Yep, we will sell them at the banquet as well as long as we have them. My guess is we won't sell all 400 tickets. I'm hoping they will have the live drawing on our Facebook again but can't promise that. Thanks for purchasing tickets!!!!!!

From: Ron Niziolek

After studying Matt and kaleb for the weekend I’ll pass along what looks to be the secret to success. First incredible adherence to the highest standards of clean living I’ve ever witnessed. Good nights rest. And both being great guys. Hopefully they got my son on the straight and narrow. I’m sure thankful for their efforts to keep him from going down the wrong path v
