Tickets for the Dave Sherwood Memorial Scholarship Elk Hunt raffle are now on sale at selected outlets across Lewis, Thurston, and Cowlitz counties.
Tickets are $25. The raffle winner will be allowed to hunt for a bull elk (minimum three-point) on TransAlta Centralia Mine lands. The hunt is open to all modern rifle, late muzzleloader, and late archery hunters and will take place during the appropriate hunting season in November (as established by the 2015 Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife regulations).
The drawing will take place at 4 p.m. Aug. 3 at the Centralia College Foundation office, 401 Centralia College Boulevard. The winner need not be present to win. The winner is responsible for buying a Washington state hunting license and tag, and will be accompanied by a TransAlta representative during the hunt.
