CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Two New Hampshire groups are raffling off 30 firearms in November to benefit the Fish and Game Department’s conservation law enforcement division.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday for $40 each for the firearms that include a Browning x-bolt Hunt, Beretta PX4, Henry H004 Golden Boy, Ruger LCR-22 and the Ruger American. Tickets will be sold through Nov. 16.

The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire — the agency’s non-profit partner — and the Barn Store of New Hampshire are sponsoring the raffle.

Foundation Chairman Steve White said the raffle is a great example of how the foundation can partner with the private sector to benefit the department.

Raffle proceeds will benefit agency programs that have been scaled back due to budget cuts, such as the canine search and rescue program.
