    Hi everyone,
    I am proud to announce that the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources Commission has awarded its second Bull Elk Tag to our N. KY. Chapter #481 Quail Unlimited. This tag is for the 2012 Fall Season and again is good in any zone for any legal weapon.
    Our QU Chapter is going to raffle this tag as we did with the first one earlier this year. The only thing required is a resident or non-resident hunting license if you should win. All elk permit fees, ($30.00 resident) and ($365.00 non-resident) have been waived.
    Tickets are being sold now and all proceeds will be used to further our conservation projects. There will be only 200 tickets sold and they are $100.00 per ticket. You can email or PM me if interested. Also, go to QU's website (Quail Unlimited®—Leading the Charge to Restore and Perpetuate Wild Quail in the United States of America) for verification if you would like. We did that so people would know that this is a legitimate project. More information is there and it is currently the 3RD item down on QU's home page. Drawing will be held at Elk Creek Sporting Clays in Owenton, KY. April 28, 2012 at 5:00pm. Each entrant will be notified of the name, city and state of the winner. The winner will be notified by registered mail.
    If you participate in our 2012 fundraiser prior to December 31, 2011, that donation may be deducted on your 2011 tax filing. QU is a 501-C-3 non-profit organization.
    Good hunting to all, Robert Smith, N. Ky. Chapter #481 QU aka Oletrapper

    Made the usual 80 yard walk to the mail box to see if any entries had arrived and the box was completely empty. Then it dawned on me. Holiday for the postal workers. geeeeesh. Getting old. Got my usual exercise though.

    Great question.

    Great question Tex, Your answer is yes you can still hunt the 2012 season.

    If perhaps you were fortunate enough to be drawn in the 2011 KY elk lottery and tagged out this year, you are precluded from participating in the lottery for a period of 3 years. (KDFWR rules)

    If you participate in our raffle and would be the winner, you can still hunt the 2012 season.

    This question has been asked of us many times and I thought I would post this information to clarify.

    We thank all of you who have participated thus far. We could not do what we do without your help.

    Christmas is just 26 days away!

    With that in mind.

    What a great idea for a stocking stuffer. We still have some tickets available for our Commission Bull Elk Tag raffle. All proceeds from this conservation fundraiser go right back into our conservation efforts and your entry is tax deductible. QU is a IRS 501-C-3 organization. Many thanks to FirearmsTalk and all those who have supported our efforts to date.

    And the winner is !

    Hello everyone,

    The N. Ky. Chapter #481 held the drawing for the Commission Bull Elk Tag on April 28th at 5:00pm. The drawing was held at the Elk Creek Hunt Club and Sporting Clays in Owenton, KY. One of the elk club’s employees reached into the box and pulled out 1 of the 200 plastic eggs. The egg contained ticket stub #028, which belonged to Leo Essex of Loretto, KY. Congratulations Leo! We hope you score a record bull elk this fall.

    We would like to thank all who participated in our fundraiser. A special thank you to those who operate this forum and who allowed our post. We could not have done it without your help and permission. All 200 tickets were sold and over $18,500.00 will be used for our conservation projects. A detailed financial report should be available by the end of this month. If you should have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

    Yours in conservation, Robert Smith, N. Ky. Chapter #481, Quail Unlimited
