The annual Stanley Wagner Memorial Game Feed may have been postponed because of a pandemic, but the raffle went on live – at least on Facebook – Nov. 14 when it had been planned.
There may still be a Wild Game Feed in the future, but a date would have to be set.
For Wendy Wagner, the Facebook Live event went really well. “At one point in time we had about 110 viewers,” she explained. “The raffle tickets were great.”
But, there is still something to look forward to, she added.
“There’s still lots of stuff that we do at the Wild Game Feeds. There is still lots of guns to be won, but we are not sure when that date is going to come,” she said, noting that people can keep up to date by checking in on the feed’s Facebook page.
The Big Raffle which was limited to just 250 entries and the Weatherby Raffle had more entrants. The Big Raffle had a first prize of a 2020 Polaris Ranger ATV Side by Side and just one entry was allowed, Wagner said.
“Ryan Varner was the winner of the 2020 Polaris 500 Ranger Side by Side,” she said.
The Weatherby Raffle had an assortment of weapons for the grand prize – including a 270 Weatherby Weathermark, a 6.5-300 Weatherby Mag Weathermark, a 257 Weatherby Mag Vanguard Deluxe and a 300 Weatherby Vanguard Deluxe.
Brian O’Connor won the Weatherby Raffle. “Second, third, fourth and fifth got their choice of the remaining raffle weapons.” Second place went to Cassidy Jesperson, while third place went to Scott Leonard of Sidney and fourth went to Scot Buerkle and fifth was Jon Griffith.
The second prize in the Big Raffle was a $3,000 gift certificate for Guns N Things and was won by Eddie Smith. The third prize of a John Wayne Commemorative 32-40 Winchester went to Forst Eichhorn. The fourth place Commemorative Legendary Frontiersman 38-55 Winchester was won by Jamie Updike.
The Wild Feed still has sweatshirts and T-shirts available at Sew What Embroidery in Baker, Wagner said. “She’ll hook you up with whatever you need.”
There were about a dozen people participating in the event drawing on the scene, she added.
Casey Koenigsfeld was the designated person drawing the entries out of a drum for the raffles.
