Annual Fundraiser - March 6-7, 2015
Colonial Inn Helena, MT
This year’s fundraiser will include our typical youth events, hunting seminars, custom rifle raffle, sheep camp raffle, incredible auction items and great conversation with fellow sheep hunting fanatics!
New this year - In order to set the stage for a night of “Putting and Keeping Sheep on the Mountain,” we are looking for more wild sheep mounts and taxidermy to display from our members. For everyone that brings their wild sheep taxidermy to display, they will be entered into an additional drawing for a hunting rifle!
Another new addition to our banquet will be the Life Member raffle. All Life Members in attendance (must be present to win) will be entered into a separate raffle! Upgrade to a Life Member today and then attend the banquet in March and you’re in the hunt!!
