TWRA Elk Hunt Raffle
Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency
2019 Elk hunt tags will be available again this year via raffle held by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Foundation (TWRF) A single ticket is $20, three tickets are available for $50, and 10 can be purchased for $100 and are on sale now until August 2. There is no limit to the number of raffle tickets that can be purchased.
The grand prize winner will get the opportunity to participate in the October 2019 rifle elk hunt in a premier Elk Hunting Zone within North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area. In addition to the elk tag, the grand prize winner will also get a Best of the West Mountain Scout Rifle, and a Huskemaw Blue Diamond long range scope, as well as the option to have the hunt filmed for an episode of The Best of the West Outdoor television series. This is a big deal for TWRA and will further staple down our claim to some of the most amazing hunting in the southeast. In addition to such great grand prizes, TWRF has secured four other prize packages as well. A complete list of the prizes can be found at www.twrf.net.
Since elk hunting started in 2009, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has donated a permit to a Non-Governmental Organization to join other participants who will be chosen from a computer drawing. “The Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission’s decision to offer an additional conservation tag is an innovative way to raise additional funding for habitat management and restoration,” said Joey Woodard, TWRF executive director. “We are proud to support the TWRA in this effort, and we have partnered with leaders in the outdoors industry to help us grow this initiative.”
Raffle tickets may be purchased online directly from the TWRF website at
Deadline for purchasing tickets is Friday, August 2 at 11:59 p.m. (CDT). The electronic drawing will be held Aug. 5 and the winners will be announced at the commission’s Aug. 16 meeting.
“The results from last year’s raffle generated $224,840 in revenue and there was only one lucky winner,” said Woodard. “Although there’s still only one elk tag up for grabs, participants will have five chances to win valuable prizes this year and that should generate even more ticket sales to support conservation.”
TWRF is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting habitat conservation, responsible land stewardship, and Tennessee’s hunting and fishing heritage for the benefit of TWRA and Tennessee’s outdoor enthusiasts.
