New Life Member Wins RMEF Sweepstakes, Stands Ready to Help Hunting Partner

Shawn Lucas didn’t become a life member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to win prizes. He joined because he believes in its mission to ensure the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage. But winning RMEF’s most recent sweepstakes turned out to be icing on the cake.

Like scores of other members, Lucas, who became a life member last September, opened a mailing he received from RMEF headquarters later in 2014. It announced the RMEF Fall ’14 Sweepstakes—an opportunity to donate toward RMEF’s mission while having a chance to win the Ambush iS 4x4 hybrid from Bad Boy Buggies or one of 14 firearms.

Shawn filled it out and mailed it, and RMEF recently notified him that he was drawn as the grand prize winner. As you might expect, he was surprised and thrilled. But as his email to us below indicates, he plans on using his new prize to help a friend.

“I was able to pick up my Buggie on Monday. I thought it appropriate to wear my life member attire! Thank you so much for this wonderful prize. I look forward to many happy years of enjoyment with this vehicle in the woods. My primary hunting buddy is handicapped so it has always been a challenge to get him into the woods without disturbing wildlife. With this whisper-quiet electric motor, he’ll be able to sneak in with much less disturbance and hopefully result in better success rates for him.”

Congratulations Shawn! And congratulations to the other 14 winners, all of whom have been notified. As you can see here, the 15 winners came from 11 different states. 

Our thanks go out to everyone who entered the sweepstakes as the dollars donated will help RMEF continue to magnify its mission.
