This years Hat Raffle prize is the Browning Maxus Ultimate 12 Gauge.

A word from Browning – Ultimate… Not a Name We Bestow Lightly. Just like the name implies, the Maxus Ultimate is the ultimate shotgun to add to your collection of fine autoloaders. Featuring grade III gloss Walnut a jeweled bolt, and an intricately laser engraved satin nickel finish receiver, the aesthetics of the Maxus Ultimate set it apart as an elegantly functional field gun. The receiver Engraving features pheasants on the right side and mallards on the left, alluding to just two of the game animals for which this design excels at hunting.
