Hi everyone,

Just wanted to let everyone know that might be interested.

Our N. Ky. Chapter #481 Quail Unlimited has been awarded a Bull Elk Tag by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Commission for the 2011 season. Commonly know as a Commissioner's Tag and is good for any zone and any legal weapon.

Our QU Chapter is going to raffle this tag which includes a shoulder mount. The only thing required is a non-resident hunting license ($130.00) if you should win. The non-resident elk permit fee ($365.00) has been waived. Tickets are being sold now and all proceeds will be used to further our conservation projects. There will be only 200 tickets sold and they are $100.00 per ticket. You can email or PM me if interested. Also, go to QU's website (www.qu.org) for verification if you would like. We did that so people would know that this is a legitimate project. More information is there and it is currently the 8th item down on QU's home page. Drawing will be no later than April 30 and sooner if all tickets are sold. Each person purchasing a ticket will be notified of the date, time and location of the drawing in the event they would like to attend. They will also be notified of the name, city and state of the winner. The winner will be notified by registered mail.

Please feel free to email me if you would prefer. thekysportsman@hughes.net

Good hunting to all, Robert Smith, N. Ky. Chapter #481 QU, aka Oletrapper

Thanks Hunter, The post has resulted in 2 sales from individuals visiting this site. A big thank you to them and a big thanks goes to Fullrut for telling me about the site. It is very hard to reach those who may be interested. The purchase of a ticket is tax deductable as a donation to QU and will help us with our conservation projects. It all goes back into conservation. IE: We purchase 1 to 2 semi loads of seed each year and give the seed away to anyone willing to plant it., We purchase much needed equipment for habitat restoration and wildlife habitat plantings; We underwrite the Jakes/Covey Conservation Day each year for over 200 youngsters; We sponsor youngsters to Conservation Camp.(new this year).

If anyone would like a flyer regarding the event, please email me and I will send it to you in the hopes that you might give it to a hunting friend. thekysportsman@hughes.net

Thanks again,

Yours in conservation, Robert Smith, N. Ky. Chapter #481 Quail Unlimited, aka Oletrapper

Just want to say thank you to Antlertalk.com and all those who have helped us make our fund raiser a great success. Good luck to all in the draw

Our raffle is winding down and Internet sales will end on April 21. because of mail delivery time. If we should happen to receive a check after the draw date, we will mark it void and return it to the entrant. There are tickets still available so if you want to participate, you need to hurry.

Thanks again,

Robert Smith, N. Ky. Chapter #481 Quail Unlimited

Hello everyone, Just wanted to let everyone know how our Elk Tag Raffle went. Thanks to many that visit this site, our raffle was a great success.



Many thanks go out to Antlertalk.com for allowing our post.



The winner of the raffle was Mark Tucker of Brooksville, KY. I called Mark when his ticket was pulled and he could not have been more excited. He told me he had tried for many years to save up money for a western elk hunting trip but every time he got close, something happened at home and had to use the money and he could not make the trip. Well, now he can go and not have to leave home. At least not very far from home.

Below, I have posted the financial report which was submitted to the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. Again, thanks to all who helped us make this fundraiser a great success.

Yours in conservation, Robert Smith, N. Ky Chapter #481 Quail Unlimited

Thank you for the kind words. Although it has been over 3 years since that event, we are still benefiting from its results.

Thanks again, Robert Smith, aka Oletrapper
