Governor announces Alpine man wins Wyoming wild bison hunting raffle


CASPER, Wyo. — Alpine man Michael Lenz has been selected as the winner of the 2021 Wyoming Governor’s Wild Bison hunting raffle, according to Governor Mark Gordon’s office.

“I offer my congratulations to Michael and send my well-wishes to him for a successful hunt,” Gordon said in a press release Monday. “I want to thank all those who purchased a raffle ticket to support Wyoming’s spectacular wildlife.”

The raffle raised a total of $5,030, with proceeds going to the Wyoming Governor’s Big Game Coalition to support efforts to sustain wildlife in the state. This was the second annual raffle for a bison hunting license.

“Each year the Coalition raises over $1 million that supports the state’s wildlife,” Gordon’s office said. “To learn more about 2021 projects, visit the Wyoming Game and Fish Department website.”
