    The Emmet County, Iowa Izaak Walton League is holding a raffle to help pay for the purchase and installation Canterbury voice activated releases for our trap field. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization.

    We are raffling off tickets for a 1 person 3 day Maine Sea Duck Hunt with Rising Sun Outfitters. www.risingsunoutfitters.com Tickets are $10.00 each. Value of hunt is $1050.00. Only 250 tickets will be sold. Drawing will be held August 3, 2009. The winner will have the opportunity to hunt North American's largest duck - The Atlantic Eider, along with opportunities to shoot Oldsquaw, three species of Scoter, Buffleheads, Mergansers and Black Ducks for three days in the beautiful coastal waters of Maine. Winner is responsible for license, travel expenses, food and lodging (food and lodging can be arranged through the outfitter for an additional fee-approximately $350).

    Anyone wishing to purchase tickets and help support the league can do so by contacting me via PM or email at a.ault@msn.com.

    Payment can be made through money order, check or PayPal (Paypal payments will incur an additional $1 fee to cover paypal fees). Anyone purchasing tickets will be mailed back their half of the ticket stub to keep as proof of purchase and for tax purposes.

    I could really use the help getting these tickets sold. I know things are tough financially for everybody, but you would be helping our club tremendously!

    Thanks,
    Rick Ault

    Rick, I passed this on to two of my work colleagues. Most likely they will buy a raffle ticket. They both are avid duck hunters.
