You Get the Guns, Youth Get Shooting Opportunities FOREVER
Pheasants Forever gun raffle, open to public, is aimed at increasing shooting sports for Iowa youth
Iowa - April 24 -
How? By purchasing your ticket for the Iowa PF State Council Forever Shooting Sports 52 Gun Raffle sponsored by the Iowa Pheasants Forever State Council, MidwayUSA and Sportsman’s Warehouse. Fifty-two brand new firearms – a total value of over $54,000 - will be raffled off, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to youth shooting sports in the state. In addition, a $400 gift certificate to Sportsman’s Warehouse will be awarded to each individual, youth shooting team or chapter that sells 25 raffle tickets.
“The Iowa PF State Council Forever Shooting Sports 52 Gun Raffle was made possible due to Pheasants Forever’s unique relationship with MidwayUSA, as well as Sportsman’s Warehouse. These two partners play a major role in providing exceptional opportunities for youth shooting sports in Iowa,” said Jared Wiklund, Pheasants Forever Central Iowa Regional Representative, “With all of the proceeds of the raffle going towards youth shooting sports in the state, it is a win-win for everyone.” At the completion of the raffle, Pheasants Forever’s chapters will be contributing fundraised dollars to various shooting teams throughout Iowa.
Chapters, individuals and youth shooting teams throughout the state will be selling raffle tickets, and for every 25 tickets that are sold by an individual, chapter or youth shooting team, a $400 gift certificate to Sportsman’s Warehouse will be rewarded for their efforts! If individuals in the state want to work together and participate in the raffle to earn a $400 gift certificate, they will be required to prepay for 25 tickets, and the gift card will be sent immediately along with the 25 tickets that need to be sold and turned in by the individual(s).

In year one, the program doubled its initial goal and provided 17,000 youth participants the opportunity to experience the thrill of shooting sports.
