New raffle raises $665,000 for Game and Fish

Posted: Updated:

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A new raffle for hunting licenses in Wyoming has raised more than $665,000.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department raffled off difficult-to-draw hunting licenses and one Super Tag Trifecta.

The Super Trifecta Tag winner can buy three different licenses from a pool of antelope, bighorn sheep, deer, elk, moose, mountain goat, gray wolf, black bear, mountain lion or wild bison licenses.

Game and Fish sold more than 50,000 raffle tickets to people from Wyoming, across the country and around the world.

The revenue helps the agency's operating budget in managing wildlife resources in the state.
