The fund-raising event, coordinated by EWA board member Eric Smith and owner of the Stage Coach Stop, will accommodate 100 sportsmen for an exciting afternoon of dove hunting, dinner and raffles in one of the most scenic venues in Texas.
The evening dinner raffle will offer hunters and other attendees chances to win exciting prizes, such as guns, trips and much more.
“This is the first year we have held this event and everyone is really excited about it,” says Charly Seale, executive director for the Exotic Wildlife Association.
