From here on out, on a monthly basis, I want to provide all of you with something I think you'll appreciate. I’m going to dig around online and via social media to find as many hunting-related sweepstakes and contests as I can. I'll give you a brief description of each opportunity, as well as a link to find them. Without further ado, here is what I found this month:
Firefield Riflescope Giveaway
Firefield is running a giveaway for one of their hot new 1-6x24 1st Focal Plane riflescopes on their Facebook page. In case you're wondering, the scope is valued at $215.99. Enter to win right now. This one ends on Sunday, April 15, 2012
Grand Slam Pursuit
Want to win a special turkey-hunters prize package? All you have to do is follow NAHC Web Editor Josh Dahlke’s Grand Slam Pursuit and leave him comments on his blog or on his J. Dahlke Hunting
Facebook page. Josh is looking for comments about your turkey-hunting stories or any turkey-hunting tips you may have for him. Start out by reading his first Grand Slam Pursuit
blog post. This one is over when Josh is done turkey hunting this spring.
Québec Ultimate Destination Giveaway
This one has some huge prizes. Here’s my suggestion: Take your time and enter all three of the sweepstakes. In total, you have 12 chances to win. Entries must be received by Sunday, June 30, 2012. The details of each are below:
: The grand-prize winner will receive a whitetail hunt, a moose hunt or a caribou hunt for two and a Cabela’s gift card. The total value of this prize is $17,509. It doesn’t stop there ... three other winners will be chosen for three other great prizes including Nikon, Federal, Weaver, Plano, Garmin and Cabela’s prize packs with a combined value of more than $3,000.
: The grand-prize winner gets a fishing trip for two and a Cabela’s gift card. The total grand-prize value is $6,649. Just like the Antlers giveaway, there will be three other prize packs at stake for other entrants; they include prize packages from Yamaha, Plano, Garmin and Cabela’s, with all three totaling more than $2,500.
: The grand prize includes a black-bear hunt for you and one of your hunting buddies, and a Cabelas’s gift card. Total value of this one is $6,614. Like the Antlers and Fishing giveaways, the black-bear giveaway will also have three other winners, with prize packages including items from Nikon, Federal, Weaver, Garmin and Plano. All three prize packs add up to more than a $3,500 value.
