WG&F Super Tag raffle for chance at hunting trophy game species open now
(Cheyenne, Wyo.) – This year the Wyoming Game & Fish is raffling off 10 Super Tags and one Super Tag Trifecta to provide more hunting opportunities for some of the state’s big game.
In the Super Tag raffle, 10 winners will receive the opportunity to buy a hunting license for one of Wyoming’s premier big and trophy game species, including:
- bighorn sheep
- mountain goat
- wild bison
- black bear
- gray wolf
- mountain lion
Hunters select the species they wish to hunt when they purchase their raffle tickets. One license will be offered for each species which will be issued through an independent drawing.
The Super Tag Trifecta raffle is similar to the Super Tag, except there will be one winner and the successful applicant will be able to select three of the 10 big and trophy game species for license issuance.
Winners for both raffles will be able to hunt in any open hunt area for the species they select. (The winner of a moose license will be able to select any moose hunting area with more than 10 licenses available; for bighorn sheep, eight licenses.)
Wyoming has some of the most sought-after hunting licenses in the nation due to uncrowded hunting conditions, trophy potential and high success rates. For 2013, hunter success rates were: deer, 64 percent; antelope, 89 percent; elk, 45 percent; moose, 92 percent; bighorn sheep, 88 percent; and mountain goat, 86 percent.
Winners of the Super Tag and Super Tag Trifecta raffles will retain any preference points they may have accumulated. In addition, the five-year waiting period for moose and sheep and the once-in-a-lifetime restrictions on bison and mountain goat licenses will be waived.
Tickets are $10 per entry for the Super Tag and $30 for the Super Tag Trifecta. There is no limit on the number of raffle tickets hunters may buy. Tickets are available through July 1 at the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s website. Winners will be notified by July 15 and must buy any applicable licenses and/or stamps before hunting.
