The Comet Athletic Club was the recipient of a white-tail deer license given as a donation to a non-profit organization from the North Dakota Game and Fish Department. The license was the prize in one of the raffle games that took place during the annual Comet Athletic Club Sportsmen’s Raffle event held Saturday evening, Aug. 25.

The winner of the license was Cory Moen of Mayville, N.D. As the winner, Cory can choose whether he wants to hunt for a buck or a doe and in which unit of the state he’ll hunt. The license is good for archery, gun, or muzzle loader.

A stipulation of the Game and Fish Department donation of the license, the Comet Athletic Club is to give 10% of its proceeds from that particular raffle to a wildlife cause in North Dakota. The Comet Athletic Club board has chosen to make a donation to the May-Port CG hunter education program. Since the raffle of the license generated $2,700, a gift of $270 has been made to the hunter education program.
