Super Tag raffle raises $641k for Wyoming wildlife management

In its second year, the Wyoming Super Tag raffle raised $641,950 from hopeful sportsmen and women from Wyoming, across the country and around the world. The Super Tag raffle was created by Governor Matt Mead and the Wyoming Legislature in 2013 to provide hunters additional opportunities to obtain difficult to draw hunting licenses and to raise money for  wildlife management in Wyoming. Through the Super Tag program, separate raffles are held for bighorn sheep, moose, mountain goat, elk, wild bison, deer, antelope, black bear and mountain lion licenses. Additionally, the Super Tag Trifecta allows one winner to choose any three licenses among those offered.
