St. Anthony’s Church Raffling Private Guided Elk Hunts

St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Questa is hosting a raffle for three separate late-season private land guided cow elk hunts.

The locations for the hunts, all in New Mexico, include the Sandia Pueblo at the Bobcat Ranch in Eagle Nest, Rio Costilla Cooperative Livestock Association (RCCLA) in Costilla, and with the Eric Kern Outfitters for a muzzle-loader hunt in Magdalena.

“God has no hands or feet except ours, we are his hands and feet. The fundraising committee needs your help to sell or buy tickets. If you are unable to help, please pray for the success of this raffle,” organizer Louise Gallegos says.

Tickets are being sold for $25 each and the church committee is selling only 500 tickets. The drawing will be held in late October. Tickets can be purchased at Rael’s Coffee Shop with Cynthia Rael-Vigil, at Questa Lumber, or by contacting Louise Gallegos via cell at (575) 586-0414.

The money raised will go to continue the construction of the church rectory, which has been a tremendously successful project thus far.
