    I would like to thank MWT and Mobowman for allowing me to offer this opportunity to the members.

    I also want to invite all of you guys to the 2006 Bragging Rights Shoot at Pershing State Park.....Brookfield MO.

    The proceeds of this raffle will go to pay for the food, awards and other items needed to make this shoot a success.

    Here is a link to the raffle site http://www.archerysite.net/smf/index.php/board,1.0.html

    Pike Co. Ill. Hunt--- Raffle for 2

    100 TICKETS ONE -2 Person Hunt

    The BRS sponsor committee would like to thank Mitch Haroldson (Big Country) of Midwest Giants Outfitters and ArcherySite.Net for donating a 6 day archery hunt for 2 in Pike Co. IL. The date of the hunt will be Sat. Nov. 11th thru the evening of Thursday Nov. 16th. Winners can arrive any time after 3 p.m. Friday the 10th. Sat. morning, you will be given a tour of the farm. After which, you may begin hanging stands and hunting. This is a semi-guidedTROPHY HUNT. They require a 125†minimum buck, or better. The hunt will include lodging in a fully furnished house within a few minutes drive of your hunting location. The winner’s will be responsible for their Illinois archery tags and meals. Please visit their website for further details www.midwestgiantsoutfitters.com or contact Big Country.

    The proceeds of this auction will be used to provide food and prizes to the participants of the annual Bragging Rights Shoot. If you don’t know what the BRS is ……where have you been? http://www.archerysite.net/smf/index.php?topic=4206.0

    This raffle will be conducted on a “Pledge†system. There will only be 100 pledges accepted. You will pledge to purchase one opportunity. The funds must be received within 7 days of your pledge. After 7 days has passed without receipt of funds……your opportunity will be open to pledge again. Only the first 100 will receive a PM containing payment information. This PM will come from WR. If you do not receive a PM from WR , you will be on the standby list for any pledges that become available due to non payment. This will be conducted on a first come basis.

    Numbers will be issued after payment is received. The number given to your pledge will be a random number. For example…..the first pledge will not necessarily be issued the number 1. The winning number will be picked by an unknown (at this time) on-line personality. The online personality will be named at a later date. They will post the number, without knowing who the number belongs to.

    This raffle will begin on Sat. March 25th at 10:00 a.m. We will open a new thread for pledges beginning Sat. March 25th at 10:00 a.m. on ASN’s General Forum, it will be a sticky at the top. All Pledges must be posted in that thread, not here.

    The winning number will be posted seven days after the last pledge has been paid for. The actual date and time of the drawing will be posted when it becomes available.

    Only ONE pledge per person.

    The cost for a pledge will be $30 with money order or $31 with Paypal.

    Saturday

    In order to be fair about it, we want to wait till Sat. morning at 10 a.m. before we accept pledges. First come basis.

    There will be a new thread started on ASN. It will be dedicated to pledges.

    You will need to register on ASN before you can post. Probably don't want to wait till Sat. to do that:)

    Someone will win a memorable experience, at the very least:banana:

    I have never hunted there. Only heard stories. Everyone has heard about Pike County.......I bet there's a reason.

    I don't think the winner's will be disappointed in the hunt. The outfitter has told me......" I am confident the guys will get a shot":D I am geussing he has had some guys miss before:confused::D:D

    You will be placing your own stands. They will show you around and recommend stand placement, but not tell you where you have to hunt.

    Only 27 hours left guys........you don't want to be # 101 for this hunt;)

    Thanks Henry

    Thanks Henry and everyone else that pledges.

    I am not sure how long this will take. We would like to receive 100 pledges for the raffle. If a couple weeks go by and we decide this will not happen, then we will set a date for the drawing. I honestly don't think it will take 2 weeks to get the 100 pledges. The drawing will take place 7 days after the last pledge money is received. I will keep this site posted........I want to thank MWT for allowing this post.

    Please tell as many as possible about this raffle. This will benefit everyone who attends the Bragging Rights Shoot in July. Some of the best eating and company you can imagine.
    Everyone is invited to the BRS........we will make you feel at home:eek:

    Raffle

    We would like to announce "The End Is Near" :banana:

    The Pledge window will close at 10 P.M. Central Time the evening of Sunday April 2nd.
    All pledges must be made by this time.

    All pledge payments must be received by 3 P.M. Central Time Monday April 10th.

    The winner will be drawn and announced at 8 P.M. Central Time Monday April 10th.

    It appears that some people fear the Pike Co. Monsters :rotfl: , therefore; we will accept additional pledges from people who have already pledged. If you would like to increase your chances.......post another pledge. We will not accept more than 100 pledges. This means your odds will not be any worse than 1 in 100.

    Please tell your friends and family about this great opportunity. We appreciate everyone's support.

    Thank you.

    If you have any questions.......please PM.

    Hey guys.

    I want to let you know that the drawing has been delayed a few hours. The young lady who was chosen to do the drawing will not be near a computer until late this evening. The number will be posted at that time......not sure exactly when.

    WR has your information and will contact the winner as soon as the number is posted.

    More good news for you guys........your odds are 1 in 65. We had 7 people not pay:confused:

    Good luck and thank you for your understanding.
