Hunters have an opportunity to win a unique year-round big game hunt while helping wildlife conservation efforts at the same time, thanks to Arizona’s Big Game Super Raffle.

The Arizona Game and Fish Commission sets aside special tags for each of the nine big game species to be used in the Super Raffle to raise money for wildlife conservation. A consortium of conservation organizations partners with the commission to raffle these special tags. The money raised goes to the benefit the big game species for which the raffle is held.

Last year’s raffle raised more than $550,000.

Raffle tickets range in price from $5 to $25, depending on the species (antelope, black bear, buffalo, Coues whitetail deer, desert bighorn sheep, elk, turkey, javelina and mule deer). The season dates for each hunt will be 365 days starting August 15, with very few limitations on hunting areas.

The Super Raffle also includes a chance at one incredible Swarovski optics package.

Purchase an “All Ten” raffle ticket package for $150 for a chance at all nine species plus the optics package.
