In partnership with Rough Country Outfitters and Friends of NRA, Zeiss is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for two hunters, 21 years or older, who are legal residents of the United States or Canada, to experience an all-expenses paid, guided pronghorn antelope dream hunt in September 2015.

To enter the contest, interested parties must nominate a hunting partner with whom they would want to share the dream hunt.

"For many hunters, a trophy pronghorn dream hunt is one for the bucket list, and we want hunters to name the person with whom they would most want to share this once-in-a-lifetime moment," said Michael A. Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. "At Zeiss, we believe in maximizing every moment of a quality and ethical hunt. And that's how we'll select the winner—we're looking for the perfect team who are ready to savor the joy of a quality trophy pronghorn hunt."

The winning entry will be awarded a three-day hunting trip guided by Rough Country Outfitters. The winner, along his or her hunting partner, will receive round-trip airfare, licenses, lodging, shoulder mounts, and game meat processing. Zeiss riflescopes and binoculars will also be included in the prize package.
