YUMA, AZ - Dove hunting season entered its second day today. The day brought the announcement of this year's winners in Sprague's 24th Annual Big Breast competition.
Ryan Eaton of Scottsdale won with a weigh-in of 81.8 ounces. Second place went to Jared Raymond of Irvine, California with a weigh-in of 76.7 ounces. John Raymond, also from Irvine, came in a close third with a weigh-in of 73.6 ounces.
The Early Bird drawing in Yuma Catholic High School's gun raffle also took place today. Twenty-five tickets were pulled from a drum at three o'clock this afternoon at Sprague's Sports. A variety of guns were given away, including shotguns and hand guns. About two dozen people showed up for the drawing.
Mitchell Leblanc was in the crowd when his ticket number was pulled. He won a Cobra 380 handgun worth about 170 dollars. Leblanc has two students at YCHS. He says he's not a hunter, but he enjoys the shooting range. Leblanc adds winning is great, but he entered the raffle to help the great school his kids attend.
One hundred more guns will be raffled off on September 13th. Tickets are available at the school or at Sprague's Sports on Saturdays. Winners can exchange the purchase price of any item won with any items available at Sprague's Sports.
Dove hunting season runs through September 15th.
