CONCORD, NH – Calling all hunting enthusiasts and history buffs; this one’s for you.
New Hampshire Fish & Game invites you to purchase a ticket for your chance to win Serial #1 of a LHR limited-edition muzzleloader rifle commemorating the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s 150th Anniversary.
The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire, Fish and Game’s official non-profit partner, announces that tickets for this special raffle are for sale starting June 15 at Bass Pro Shops in Hooksett, where the rifle is on display. Only 1,000 tickets are available, priced at $10 per ticket or three for $25. The winning ticket will be drawn September 19, 2015, at the Hunting & Fishing Expo to be held at Bass Pro Shops in Hooksett.
“Bass Pro Shops is proud to partner with the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire in its support of N.H. Fish and Game. This one-of-a-kind rifle serves as a symbol of the dedication and hard work the men and women of the N.H. Fish and Game Department have put into our most cherished outdoor resources these past 150 years, said Bob Pope, General Manager of the Hooksett store.
LHR Sporting Arms of Rochester joined in Fish and Game’s 150th Anniversary celebration by producing a special 50 cal. Redemption muzzleloader rifle. One side of the rifle receiver has N.H. Fish and Game’s commemorative 150th anniversary plaque, and the other side features the Redemption logo. The bottom of the receiver has a plaque reading “NH Fish and Game 1865-2015, Serial #1.” LHR Sporting Arms generously donated the first gun manufactured in the series to benefit the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire.
All proceeds benefit the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire, which supports the wildlife, conservation, education and outdoor programs of the N.H. Fish and Game Department for our children and future generations. These programs are critical to preserving the outdoor way of life in New Hampshire, so people can continue to enjoy family traditions such as hiking, hunting, fishing and watching wildlife. Recent projects the Foundation has supported include Operation Game Thief, Law Enforcement Canine Unit, youth programs at Barry Conservation Camp, Owl Brook Hunter Education Center, Law Enforcement Dive Team, and the Great Bay Discovery Center. The Foundation is also a proud sponsor of Discover WILD New Hampshire Day, where the public can learn about the many outdoor activities in New Hampshire supported by N.H. Fish and Game.
