Win a Fully Guided / All Inclusive Elk Hunting Trip and Benefit Veterans
This year marks the third year of the Pay It Forward veteran’s event up at Lake of the Woods. Pay It Forward is a 3 night, 2 day fishing extravaganza that honors, celebrates and recognizes veterans. In this case, 60 veterans will have the opportunity to enjoy 2 days of charter fishing on Lake of the Woods, great food, entertainment and of course, and perhaps the most valuable part of this expense free trip, camaraderie with other veterans.
Pay It Forward is fully funded through donations. Donated lodging, charter boats / captains, meals and gifts from generous resorts, business owners, individuals and people who believe in helping out those who sacrificed for our nation is what funds this event. In addition to donations, this year we are conducting a raffle with the grand prize an elk hunting trip through an outfitter near Craig, Colorado called Wilderness Tracks Guides and Outfitters. This outfitter was very generous in greatly reducing the price of a fully guided world class elk hunting trip for two people allowing us to put this trip up as a fundraiser. The winner of this trip will receive a fully guided elk hunting trip for two people October 26-30, 2016 .
Winners of this raffle will be staying in log cabins and eating delicious home cooked meals. This outfitter uses specially designed jeeps with a lift kit, noise suppression system for exhaust and oversized tires which allows for very quiet travel through the beautiful terrain. It also allows access for the disabled and older folks who don’t get around as well to enjoy elk hunting. Some hunters appreciate the comfort during inclement weather as well.
Wilderness Tracks Outfitters is fortunate to have different pieces of land to hunt. Because of this, they typically will hunt a section and let it rest a while not to pressure the animals. And animals they do have. Last year, everyone who hunted had a good chance at an elk. Success depended upon how good of a shot you are of course.
This ranch has produced numerous elk that scored 300 plus, which is a true trophy. Elk hunting tags for this area and this season are available for purchase over the counter to the winners and no drawing for tags is necessary.
If you happen to be up in the Lake of the Woods area, raffle tickets are being sold by numerous resorts and businesses. Lake of the Woods Tourism also has tickets available. A chance at this elk hunt is $20 per ticket. If by chance you are not going to be in the area, as long as you are 18 or over, feel free to mail in a check for some chances and we will mail back your ticket stub(s). Please include a note with how many tickets at $20 each, your name, address and phone number and of course your check. The drawing will be held on August 25th.
