Today, at 8:40 a.m., Sheriff Ken Furlong and Joe Bruno of the Carson City Sheriff's Office Mounted Unit will conduct the drawing for three lucky winners in a special raffle for an all-expense-paid, fully-guided, Montana bull elk hunting trip in 2006.
That drawing will be held at radio station CUB County 94.5 in Reno.
There were a total of 1,000 tickets available at a cost of $50 each.
Proceeds from that raffle will go to the Carson City Sheriff's Mounted Unit.
Each of the three lucky winners will be able to take one person with them on their hunt. Each of the six will receive $3,650 for the hunt, $1,000 for guaranteed hunting license and necessary tags, $500 for travel expenses and $400 for pocket money for a total of $5,550 per person!
The six hunters will receive a nine-day, combination elk and deer hunt on horseback in the world-famous Bob Marshall Wilderness Area.
That nine-day hunt includes one day of travel to reach base camp, seven full days of hunting and one day to come out.
The hunts are scheduled for Oct. 28 - Nov. 5, 2006 with the White Tail Ranch (WTR) Outfitters LLC of Ovando, Montana.
