Is anyone else here paying for the pro membership sweepstakes operated by Michael Deming? I cancelled mine today. I've been participating for 5 years and never won a thing. My gut has started telling me something isn't quite right and when my gut speaks I listen. I have been a member of the Rocky Mountain Elk foundation for years and over the past 4 years I have won 4 guns and there are a lot more participants in those drawings. These are some questions I started asking myself about the Pro Membership Sweepstakes: Why don't they use a program like random name picker where participants can verify that their names are entered in the drawing. The ticket tumbler with printed hand cut tickets being pick out by Deming himself leaves a lot of room for error and dishonesty. Not to say that Deming is doing anything dishonest but over the years in my profession I've been taught to trust but verify, lives depended on it. It also appears that Deming goes on a lot of hunts himself to check out the outfitters as he says. Is he paying for these hunts out of his pocket, or is it taken out of the money generated by the raffles? I'm going to go with he latter. I'm thinking a lot more hunts could be added to the sweepstakes instead of Deming going on them to check them out as he says. I've been hunting for approximately 40 years and I'm sure I could tell you if an outfitter was good or bad if I was on a hunt with them. I'm also sure there are probably a lot of reviews out there already on the outfitters before Deming even looks at them as a participant in the sweepstakes. Oh yeah don't call Deming out either just to ask if your ticket is actually in the barrel, or he will try to embarrass you on his drawing video like he did one participant, real class act if you ask me. Just my 2 cents.
