      I’m not sure if I’m going about this the right way, but I would like to enter your contest to win the hunt and rifles. Year’s ago I was an avid hunter, since moving to Florida I have not hunted, I moved to Fl in 1979. I am a Hunter Safety Instructor, which I enjoy a great deal. Thank you, George Szoke.

      As a former owner of a Mk-V in .270 wby mag, and a current owner of two Vanguards in .257 wby mag, I am a devoted Weatherby fan. I would be thrilled to add another Weatherby to my collection and to participate in one of your hunts. I prize my Weatherbys as much as I prize the Mk-V tie bar given to me by Roy Weatherby at the Firestone Blvd. store in 1966. I look forward to hearing from you.Thank You very much.

      There is nothing to indicate how to enter your contest. If you’re going to advertise a drawing and./or contest, indicate how a person does it. I own a Weatherby SAS-12 shotgun. Ron
