BIG-GAME HUNTING — Todd Klement of Spokane just received the official letter informing him that he'd won the state-sponsored raffle for a coveted 2011 Wasington moose hunting permit.

“I could use any tips or directions on where to start looking,” he said in an email announcing his lucky draw.

“I had forgotten I even bought a raffle ticket until they called me last week. For awhile I thought someone was playing a joke on me until I got the certified letter in the mail. 

“The chance at the raffle was only $10 but after my trip to Cabela's last night I see this moose is going to cost me.

“I told the wife I needed new stuff to hunt moose. She rolled her eyes like she always does.”

And he hadn't even got around to mentioning that they'll probably need a bigger freezer.
