The annual raffle for a South Dakota elk hunting license has once again raised funds for elk management. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation raffled a 2013 Custer State Park elk hunting license which generated over $30,000.
“All funds raised through this raffle are used for on the ground management of elk in South Dakota,” said Larry Gehrke, coordinator for the South Dakota raffle for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
Donald Latham of Renner won the 2013 license. Additional prizes were also awarded as part of the raffle. Robert Amor of Sioux Falls won second prize, a 7mm Remington Mag; Jim Rose of Sioux Falls won third prize, a .22 caliber pistol; and Craig Hunnel of Gettysburg won fourth prize, a .50 caliber muzzleloader.
