Raffle tickets make great gifts for hunters and the proceeds benefit wildlife
Still searching for the perfect gift for all the hunters on your list? Tickets for the 2018 Arizona Big Game Super Raffle are on sale and by buying tickets now you’ll be entered to win an early bird prize.
While 10 lucky individuals will win one of 10 special big-game tags (bighorn sheep, elk, mule deer, white-tailed deer, pronghorn antelope, bison, turkey, black bear, javelina and mountain lion) for the 2018-2019 hunting season, the real winner is Arizona’s wildlife. The 2017 Big Game Super Raffle netted a record-setting $673,600, and every dollar raised for each species through the raffle is returned to the Arizona Game and Fish Department and managed by the Arizona Habitat Partnership Committee for that particular species.
Those who buy tickets online in December will be entered to win one of 10 Canyon Coolers as part of the “Buy Early, Buy Often, Win Big” incentive drawing program. Additional incentive drawings take place for all tickets purchased online through May. Buyers will receive one incentive drawing entry per order regardless of the number of raffle tickets purchased in that order.
Raffle tickets can be ordered online, or a ticket order form that can be printed out and mailed in is available on the website. Tickets range from $5 to $25 depending on the species. All mail-order entries must be received by July 13, 2018, and online sales end July 15, 2018, at 10 p.m. (Arizona). There is no limit on how many tickets can be purchased. The drawing will take place July 26, 2018.
In the 12-year history of the raffle, more than $6.1 million have been raised for wildlife and wildlife management in Arizona. Conducted by a nonprofit entity, a volunteer board of directors made up of representatives from sponsoring organizations oversees the raffle’s operation.
