Forgot to say thanks to Coach for buying my bench. I wish I kept track of the hours put into making them, it was a lot. I think they are one of my best projects to date.  I do think that you picked the wrong one :chuckle:.....man I really wanted to keep that WA WSF logo one...I darn near didn't put that one in the auction. 

Also a point of clarification on the beginner's luck (our version of national WSF's <1) you must be a WA WSF life member not just a general member.

Coach,
I wanted that bench and shouldnít have stopped at 800.  A beautiful bench and quite a conversation piece :tup:

True, the first drawing is for anyone who has never killed a sheep before, bought a $50.00 shirt and were members of wash wild Sheep.  The 2nd draw is for Washington wild Sheep life members, and you must be present.  The first drawing is called the less than one club, it is not guaranteed that they have that drawing every year, weíve had it the past few years due to very generous donations.  It may or may not happen, we usually find out later in the year. But your out, no less than one for you Plat!!! 😜 you should go next year, itís damn fun. And with coach at your table, you know youíll get balloons at your table!!

Yes but technically I've never killed a sheep let alone 2 according to WDFW. Technically. :dunno: :chuckle:

I can't believe people questioning the intergrity of people so dedicated to conservation. In my opinion those that put the time in sure as hell deserve to win . So let me get it right if your s member that devotes countless hours to the cause you should be excluded from one of the biggest events of said association . How many guys joined just to have a chance to win ? Maybe a few should join then pull there name out? Look at Jerry he won a 5k card and I believe he wasted most of it . Cuddos to these guys that give so much with no expectations of taking back out !
My wife told me that I hunt way more than I did when we first got married. I said yeah I know isn't it great !

You canít believe how people would question something happening with odds in the ballpark of 1 in 150,000 to 1 in 200,000 would happen? Especially after the issues raised with the integrity of the draw? Really?

If we witnessed an actual miracle take place thatís fine but considering the circumstances it should raise questions with everybody who was there.

Some things have been cleared up but you canít shrug off how completely unlikely that was for ANYBODY to have happen to them, let alone the people who controlled the tickets.

Everybody who was there donated their money and time towards conservation.

Right everyone donated including those that one ...look at Kevin Vandam a couple years ago . Five k card . Gun safe and sheep hunt . I guess I'm just not a skecptic. I saw lots of named in the tumbler when I looked and certainly if I was gonna rig it I'd make sure it was on the second chance draw . Look I'm not trying to rag on our members just giving good people benefit of the doubt

 :yeah:

It was a great event and yes someone got extremely lucky. I work with this group and I   am 100% sure that there was no messing with the raffle.  Proud to work with a quality group of guys and gals who work to put more sheep on the mountain👊💥👊

I donít believe thatís going to happen, I erased much of what I wanted to say because it might be taken the wrong way.  For the record, I support all that the wild sheep foundation does, I am a proud life time member.  Now, if you were there and didnít question to yourself the reality of what happened, your a saint.  Itís ok that guys question what happened, it may cause a change for the better?  If it was just a couple people who felt something was up, oh well, but it wasnít.  I donít blame guys for questioning what/how that could happen, I donít personally feel it was fraud.  But it certainly crossed my mind, just being honest, which usually gets me in trouble. But, Iíll be honest no matter what it cost me.

Maybe people should think about how these drawings became available for that possibility, 5 out of 6 years my wife and I have won expensive items at 3 different Banquets   So I guess they are all in Q    That is what I am hearing

The same person has won a tag from the western hunt expo raffle multiple years in a row.

This year in Washington another person beat the odds and won both sheep hunts.

Both these raffles have same odds for everyone because you can't buy multiple tickets for the raffles.

When it comes to things like raffles, lotteries, etc greed comes into play and eventually you will read that one of the conservation groups local or national chapters had some funny business going on with a raffle. Not saying there was anything wrong with either of the 2 events I listed above. Those are just examples of major odds being overcome by luck. You see fraud with churches, government, charities, so why would conservation groups be excluded? Mark my words it will come out whether it happens at a small local turkey banquet or something big like the western hunt expo. When crazy odds get overcome time and again eventually it won't be just luck. It will be tampering.

Given that, why not remove any doubt and have the drawings run by an independent CPA firm?

Thereís reality, and perception.
