The WR Board of Directors would like to thank all of you who have sold your 2017 Western Region Annual Raffle tickets. This week we have attempted to contact each of you that have not sold your tickets and encourage you to do so. The WR Board is asking each member of the Western Region to help with the marketing of the WR Raffle. We encourage you to make the tickets available to your family, friends, hunting companions, and acquaintances. It’s a great opportunity to experience great upland bird hunting or win a very nice shotgun. Please help with the marketing of the WR Raffle. If you need additional tickets please do not hesitate to contact Frank O’Leary at 509-520-7483 or

Enjoy the rest of your summer and good luck with your training. We look forward to see you at the fall test.

Best Regards,
Frank O'Leary
Western Regional Director
