The drawing was held by an online random number generator (RNG) at Random.ORG. Please see their website for details on how the RNG works.
This is the first of many drawings that will be held here at My Hunting & Fishing. We announced this contest a few days ago, sort of as a practice-run for the Drawing for a $100 Cabela's Gift Card which will be held at 6:00 PM on November 21st, 2011. The winner will then be announced that same day at 6:30 PM.
Here is a screenshot of the Random.ORG website and the random number generator on the right hand side, which was used for this drawing.
In order to be entered in the drawing, you had to be a Member of My Hunting & Fishing, and all you had to do was comment on the post announcing the drawing. In the post I introduced a new topic: A ban on lead ammunition, that environmental groups are trying to pass through legislation via the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
We only had two comments on the post, so I entered a minimum of "1" and a maximum of "2" for the parameters. The first comment (by S-Man Pens and Antlers) would have a value of "1", and the second comment (by Ashley Davis) would have a value of "2".
I clicked on the Generate button and got a result of 2, so congratulations, Ashley!
Please email me your mailing address at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will forward it to my friends at the Boone and Crockett Club so that they can send you your first edition of Fair Chase Magazine and other details on your membership!
Thank you both for participating and until next time -
Happy Hunting & Tight Lines!
