Super Tag Winners Announced

Written by on July 17, 2019

Most dream about epic hunts; some go on them.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department announced the winners of its Wyoming Super Tag raffle on Monday, and two Wyoming hunters were among the lucky few.

Created by Gov. Matt Mead and the Wyoming Legislature in 2013, the Super Tag raffle provides hunters opportunity and raises money for wildlife management in Wyoming. This year, 87,112 tickets were sold, a 20 percent increase from last year. This amounts to $1.1 million generated for wildlife conservation. The program has raised more than $4.8 million since its inception.

Winning the Super Tag allows hunters to choose any open hunt area in the state, with some limitations. This fall, 11 hunters will pursue bighorn sheep, moose, mountain goat, elk, bison, deer, pronghorn, black bear, gray wolf and mountain lion or a combination of three species of their choice with the Trifecta.

Paul Dona and Randy Higgins were the winners from Wyoming, with Dona drawing a Bighorn sheep and Higgins a wild bison tag.

Other winners were from South Dakota, Texas, Minnesota, Alabama and California.
