A $25 Polaris

When Edmond Kennedy lost his job, he needed money more than he needed his ATV. So he sold it. But while the cash helped remedy his economic situation, Kennedy’s hunting situation tanked. In his early 70s, he simply couldn’t get around like he used to. And his time in the woods plummeted.

Fast forward a few years. Now 75, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation member from Gladewater, Texas, was tempted last summer when he received in the mail an RMEF Sweepstakes Package. The grand prize: a Polaris Ranger XP 900 EPS Hunter Edition off-road vehicle. Kennedy’s hopes of winning were little more than a glimmer, but he followed his optimism and sent in his RMEF sweepstakes entry tickets along with a $25 check – a decision that would change his life!

“When I found out that I’d won, I couldn’t believe it. I’d never won anything like this before,” said Kennedy. “When I recovered from the shock, I realized that now I could get back to hunting again.”

Kennedy’s new Polaris was delivered last fall in time to help him enjoy the Texas woods again. Like he did before he lost his job – and like he hadn’t done in several years.

Congratulations, Mr. Kennedy. Hunt on!

Watch for another RMEF sweepstakes package arriving in your mailbox soon! You could be the next big winner and all proceeds help fund RMEF conservation initiatives.
