Sometimes I’m surprised. I knew, when we ran our Weaver Dream Hunt for Two Giveaway last year, that the prize was pretty darn awesome. The prize itself was a combination of a hunting trip and over $1500 in Weaver hunting gear, like their Grand Slam Binoculars, a Buck Commander Rangefinder and more. I knew that prize was going to get people excited, and the thousands of entries we got proved that point, but I’m surprised by just how amazing the trip was.
Our winner, Kenneth, took his two grown sons on the trip, and to hear them talk about it (MUST-WATCH video above) I can honestly say they really won something special. Hunting is great. Getting outdoors at a beautiful ranch like the Record Buck in Utopia Texas would be fun for anyone, but to see the great memories a father and his sons got to make really drove home the point that this trip was something special. I can personally attest to how dear memories with my dad are, and this hunting trip helped these three make some great memories. The fact that one of the sons lives a bit further away and doesn’t get to see his brother or father very often just makes it that much more special.
We’re always pushing to run more sweepstakes to giveaway the world’s best gear, but every once in a while I’m pleasantly surprised to see the impact one of our goes beyond giving great gear or a fun time. We gave away a chance at amazing, lifelong memories. That’s worth a lot more than any price we could apply to the prize. Congratulations to Kenneth and his sons Brandon and Nicholas. I’m so happy we could give you an amazing Dream Hunt Prize in conjunction with Weaver!
