Final Lone Wolf winners selected

January 11, 2010 at 03:11 PM

Our final winners were selected in random drawings for our Lone Wolf Stands Big Buck Sweepstakes.

These drawings were supposed to be held on Dec. 21 and Jan. 4. But due to the backlog of stories and pictures, we have only now been able to hold the drawings. Long story short, we didn’t want to have a drawing until we had accounted for every entry and the holidays and vacation time slowed that process down.

For that we apologize. More importantly here’s the long-awaited drumroll…

The latest winners are:

Doug Schrock of Amboy won an Elite Hang-on stand for submitting a story about his 15-point Lee County gun kill.

Eric Selph of Mackinaw won a set of Lone Wolf climbing sticks for submitting a story about his 9-point Fulton County buck.

Thanks to everyone who submitted pictures and stories this year. We will be posting more of your pictures and stories throughout 2010. And we promise to have even more prizes for the 2010-11 promotion.

As always, special thanks to Lone Wolf for providing the excellent prizes.

The winner in our Dec. 7 drawing was:
Wes Poppenhager of Astoria. He won an Alpha Hand Climber stand. He submitted a story about killing a 15-point Fulton County buck on Nov. 5.

The winner in our Nov. 23 random drawing was:
Brian Koziel of New Lenox won an Alpha Hand Climber stand. He submitted a story about killing a 10-point Will County buck on Nov. 12.

The winner in the Nov. 9 random drawing was:
Jamie Duke of Bloomington won an Alpha Assault hang-on stand. He submitted a story about killing a 12-point Putnam County buck on Halloween.

Winners in the Oct. 26 random drawing were:

    Brian Kiel of Taylorville won an Alpha Assault hang-on stand from Lone Wolf.
  • Nate Campbell of Beardstown won a set of Lone Wolf climbing sticks.

Winners in the Oct. 12 random drawing were:

  • Dustin Tetrault of Mackinaw won an Alpha Assault hang-on stand from Lone Wolf.
  • Kathy Long of Morton won a Lone Wolf quiver combo mount.
  • Jason DeSotel of Hidalgo won the Night Strike Swivel that offers ultraviolet, blue, red, green and white lights. The blue lights are supposed to be ideal for illuminating blood trails. Night Strike is sold by Cabela’s.

The next drawing will be Dec. 21. So there’s plenty of time between now and then to submit your Big Buck Story and pictures. So far we have received more than 106 entries. Those who submit a story will be eligible for all our drawings this year.

Resubmitting a story that you sent in last year does not qualify you for this drawing. So get creative and get hunting.

Basically how it will work is this:

1. You send in a picture and Illinois Outdoorsstory or video about your big buck from this year or any other year. Submit your story by using this form or by e-mailing a picture and plenty of details to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

2. We post your story, pictures and video on our popular Big Buck Stories page, or as a Picture of the Day or even as one of our Tuesday Tales from the Timber.

3. You are entered for a chance to win Lone Wolf tree stands and gear. Drawings will be held Illinois hunting and fishingevery two weeks in October, November, December and once in January. Scheduled dates are Dec. 21 and Jan. 4.

The whole thing is simple. It’s fun. And it’s enjoyable for everyone. So get your pictures and stories and videos together and start submitting stuff.

Last year we gave away nearly $1,700 worth of Lone Wolf gear and this year the total will be closer to $3,000. Prizes this year will include four Alpha Assault hang-on stands (above), 2 Alpha hand climbers, 1 Elite hang-on, 2 Pro series climbing sticks and 1 Lone Wolf quiver combo mount.

We’ve also got a cool new flashlight from Energizer called Illinois hunting and fishingthe Night Strike Swivel that offers ultraviolet, blue, red, green and white lights. The blue lights are supposed to be ideal for illuminating blood trails. Night Strike is sold by Cabela’s.
