Unreal, the odds of winning both hunts are unreal, makes you wonder if it’s on the up n up!!!

Had something similar happen at rmef banquets multiple times. Makes me hesitant to even go and if I do, to spend much money.

I’ll be the first to admit that anybody has the same odds of winning both drawings, but that fact that she won both, and was the one taking money for membership tickets is just way too fishy.... she was literally the one put the tickets in the hat. Oh, and the other person drawn just happened to not be there?!

If I sound bitter it’s because I am. No way the person handling the tickets should be in the drawing

I agree. This needs to be addressed and fixed. Maybe it was a completely random thing that the same person happened to hit both jackpots back to back each with less than 1% odds.

But the fact that it was an insider who won, and who was also involved in handling the tickets, and her husband was on the stage during the drawing reaks of an inside job. Nobody in the room except those on the comittee know exactly how many tickets were in the tumbler and who’s name went on those tickets.

And by addressed and fixed I mean a different method for future drawings.

I think its pretty sad that this has turned into an online conspiracy .. The people who have put more time and effort that anyone get unbelievably lucky and now its being discussed in front of the whole world that some people feel it was an inside job..? Nobody wants to win those sheep hunts more than me and did I shake my head and think wow that is next to impossible,  but like everyone else in the room I watched them blind draw the winners including someone who wasn't present that could have won.. Sure go ahead and nicely present your ideas of change to the board via email or phone call but to call them out for an inside job on here is rude . ..

The “blind draw” for me is the problem. I didn’t see them put any names in the tumbler. You, me or nobody in that room knows how many names went into that tumbler or if the odds were stacked with more names than others. It’s next to impossible to have what happened there happen. But the fact that those impossible odds happened to the people in charge of the tumbler is absolutely suspicious. Go ahead and shrug it off if you want.

Well... the guys who run the show are members of huntwa. Maybe they’ll chime in if they see the thread.

:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
