No wonder doors for this event open at 5 p.m. considering one of many great auction items includes an exclusive Wyoming Commissioner’s Tag good for elk, deer or antelope for the 2015 season.

This year’s live auction showcase item is a one-of-a-kind NRA-themed motorcycle with a low, bullet-like appearance and gunmetal paint job designed by Orange County Choppers, Century Arms and the NRA! Now that’s something I can’t wait to see!

Sponsored by Cabela’s, Henry Repeating Arms, Kimber, Universal Coin & Bullion and ZEISS, funds raised will benefit The NRA Foundation, America’s leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports. Don’t miss the fun while helping to ensure the future of America’s shooting and hunting heritage. For more information, visit
