$25 dollars and amazing odds for a chance to win a hunt of a lifetime. Sounds too good to be true? Well, it isn't. Read on to get the details. 

It’s always great to hear stories about hunter’s giving back to wildlife and conservation. There is no doubt about it, conservation groups need our support, now more than ever — whether it’s donating hours of your time to work on habitat or fund raising projects, or even the direct donation of money. With our support, conservation groups will obtain their goal of further conserving wildlife.

The great part about hunting related conservation groups, if you donate your time and money, you can be confident that your money will be well spent.

To further this goal of promoting conservation, we wanted to get the word out about an opportunity to draw a truly once-in-a-lifetime tag at the 2016 Colorado Mule Deer Association (CMDA) banquet. The CMDA has TWO Colorado governor’s mule deer tags available this year, one is a raffle tag and one is a live auction tag. The best part — neither tags require the winner be present.

The odds of drawing this tag are phenomenal! Tickets are only $25 dollars and they are ONLY allowing 25 tickets per person. To purchase tickets you can call Trina at 970-640-3485 or you can send an email to: dreambig_believebig@yahoo.com for tickets. 

Who wouldn't spend $25 for a chance to win a hunt of lifetime and also support conservation?
