Cheyenne – With a Wyoming Super Tag license, winners experience one of the few ultimate hunting adventures in the West. But, in addition to the hunt of a lifetime, the 2017 Super Tag raffle has become a lot more super; the Wyoming Game and Fish Department is partnering with several companies to offer the “Ultimate Hunting Gear Package.”
For every five Super Tag raffle tickets (any species or combination of species), or every two Super Tag Trifecta tickets an individual purchases, his or her name is entered into a raffle for a complete hunting gear package donated by KUIU, Swarovski, Weatherby, and Leupold. “The gear assembled is for the most hardcore hunter for the most hardcore hunts,” said Renny MacKay, communications director for Game and Fish.
One winner will receive a full clothing package from KUIU Ultra Light Hunting Gear that also includes KUIU’s Mountain Star two-person tent, 15 degree sleeping bag, and ICON Pro 5200 backpack; EL 10×50 binoculars and ATX/STX 25-60×65 spotting scope from Swarovski Optik; a Weatherby Mark V Arroyo RC 6.5-300 WBY rifle: and a Leupold VX-6 HD 3-18x44mm rifle scope, RX-1200i rangefinder, and scope mounting system.
Full clothing packages are also available from KUIU for the Super Tag Trifecta, bighorn sheep, elk, moose, and mountain goat winners.
“KUIU is proud to support the Wyoming Game and Fish Department in its efforts to bring additional funding for wildlife conservation and big game management through the Super Tag raffle. We also enjoy being a part of the Super Tag winner’s hunts in their quest for success,” said KUIU president and founder, Jason Hairston.
Wyoming’s Super Tag hunting license raffle was created by Governor Matt Mead and the Wyoming Legislature in 2013. The Super Tag raffle includes nine drawings, one drawing for each of the following species: bighorn sheep, mountain goat, Shiras moose, elk, wild bison, deer, antelope, mountain lion, and black bear. For the Super Tag Trifecta there is just one drawing, and the winner gets to choose any three licenses from those offered. Super Tag tickets are $10 and Super Tag Trifecta tickets are $30 and can only be purchase on the Game and Fish website.
“Hunters have long been the backbone of wildlife conservation in North America. The Super Tag raffle is a great way to generate money to wildlife conservation and offers an unparalleled hunting adventure for those fortunate to win,” said Dean Capuano, director of communications for Swarovski Optik North America.
