CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Wildlife officials say the Wyoming Super Tag raffle raised $641,950 in its second year on sale.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says that this year, 50,485 raffle tickets were sold, an increase from last year.

Gov. Matt Mead and the Wyoming Legislature created the tag in 2013 to give hunters additional opportunities to get difficult-to-draw licenses and to raise money for wildlife management in the state. Through the program, separate raffles are held for bighorn sheep, moose, mountain goat, elk, wild bison, deer, antelope, black bear and mountain lion licenses.

A raffle for the Super Tag Trifecta allows one winner to choose any three licenses among those offered.
