Ron Niziolek's Link
Hi all and Happy New Year!
Bowhunters of Wyoming is once again raffling off a Commissioners Tag. This one for 2020. Please see attached flyer for information or ask questions on here. Also please note there are 2nd and 3rd prizes offered.
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 and Charlie for always being supportive of our efforts! Ron
The winner will be drawn at our annual convention on March 21st.
Just picked up a couple tickets. Great opportunity and supports some really neat projects in WY.
Hopefully I just bought the two winning tickets!
I'm in and why not? My odds for a bull tag are better in the raffle than the application I sent last month.
Ron, must we be present at the banquet to win in any of the other raffles? Thanks!
Two friends of mine have won this raffle. Both are on bowsite
Brotsky, no need to be present to win. It just makes it more exciting. Just ask Palmquist!
Thanks Ron! Be cool to see a Bowsiters win this again! Will be in in the am!
Yes. In. Always love to support BOW and dream about which tag/unit I’d select.
I just bought the winning ticket.
This is for a great cause! I just bought two tickets myself.
I bought my ticket and renewed my BOW membership.
I'll wait till renewal date and then get it all done at once!
Thanks BOW for this yearly Daydream of a Raffle
I had Kia push enter. Can't wait to hunt on my commissioner's tag this fall! :-)
In for my annual tickets!
Are NR only allowed 10% of these tickets with 3% going to outfitters now?
In it to win it!
Count me in for a couple!
Even though with Kia’s luck on Brotsky’s entry it’s probably just another donation....
Tickets going fast. 150 sold
I bought the winner yesterday
Just became a member of BOW and in for a ticket.
Just thought we would let you know what BOW did with the Commissioner's Tag and other funds last year. First and foremost we have to give credit to Commissioner Mark Anselmi for giving us a tag. Here is a breakdown of last year's projects: Sheep Survival Study in Wyoming Range $5,000.00 Ecology of Male Mule Deer in Western Wyoming $5,000.00 WY Range Mule Deer Severe Winter Recovery-Pinedale $5,000.00 Wildlife Habitat Improvement - Lander $500.00 Paintrock Hunter Mentor Program Archery Support - Worland $700.00 Elk Mountain Bighorn Sheep Sightability $375.00 Two Spot Trace Devices & service plans-Gillette $520.00 Stockade Beaver Creek Conifer Removal II $5,000.00 Wireless Trail Cameras - Jackson $1,845.00 Access Yes $2,650.00 Sheridan Walk-In Areas Ventenata Treatment $5,000.00 Youth Hunting & Fishing Expo $3,325.00 Total $34,915.00 As you can see we donated more money than the 400 tickets brought in. We also had $7,500 from a partnership bison tag in 2018. BOW donated $6,940 of our funds and we had auction items specifically earmarked for the Access Yes and the Youth Hunting & Fishing Expo for $475. This is how we were able to donate $34,915 for projects in Wyoming that benefit all sportsmen, resident and non-resident.
If you can afford $50 for a chance at a elk, deer or antelope license in Wyoming, here is your chance, rest assured it will be put to good use - Mike
WINNER, WINNER....... CHICKEN DINNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Ron, fingers crossed.
Same price as a preference point but you might actually get a tag! Buy up!
Thanks Mike for all you and BOW members do for all of us that enjoy your great state.
Bump to the top. Mike, Randy or I will post when we get an another updated ticket sales count.
Thank you. I only bought 1, but thats all it takes!
Thanks Jeff. Beat me to it!
Just bought my donation ticket. Also bought banquet tickets as some people are thinking we may sell out.
Im passing this year. Will be giving the WGF $1700 already
And you can still use your other elk license so you can kill two bulls! I’m in!!! That would be a season to remember.
I just got tickets 171/172
205 gone 195 left. If you are sitting on the fence on buying a ticket, you might still be sitting on that fence this fall while someone else is hunting in Wyoming with YOUR tag. Remember the tag is transferable, wouldn't this be a hell of a present for a kid or a friend! ....Mike
Ticket #75 is the winner! That's the year I was born, it's an omen.
I don't know Brotsky, I think Ticket #166 is the winner this year. That's the balance in my life savings account. It's an omen!!
Is the ticket number listed in the confirmation email?
Check your SPAM folder. That is where is where I found mine.
So what could be the expectation for size for antelope, deer and elk on a two week DIY trip? With some expert advice from knowledgeable Bowsiter’s, of course :)
Rod, just so you're aware, the tag is for your choice of deer, elk OR antelope, not all three. Just hit up one of us BOW members for recommendations when you win:)
Thanks, Brian. Email located!
Yes, that’s clear Ron. I’m happy at least two of us are convinced I’m going to win!
I’m in for two tickets for .5% odds! Feeling lucky!
Grabbed one for dad and one for myself
I'm in. Annual donation that I'm happy to make.
Better hurry tickets are going fast!
Ambush, let’s make a deal, when you win I’ll take that tag for an elk hunt. And then you and I can whack up my 12 antelope points and have a really good lope hunt. Win-Win! Don’t waste that tag on a dirty old antelope ;)
And notice the confidence in which I state that with, because I know you are gonna win! ;)
^^^ I’m saving a screen shot of that deal Jim. With the amount of animals you kill, that may be my best bet!!!
Though I shouldn’t trade you the tag for a Sitka hunt according to a guy from Iowa that wants to remain nameless.
Ambush, I see Jim's offer and raise him 2 antelope points! Ha!
The stakes are getting higher and ticket sales should be on fire!
Donated for a couple...Good Luck to everyone
Just got an email that we’ve sold 252 tickets
Well it’s 254 now. I’m in and bought a membership too.
And if I win I will NOT be using it for an antelope tag ;)
It only takes 1 to win. Well... plus two more coolers!
I donated a couple too. Sure would be a thrill to get that call!
