Frequently Asked Questions

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO WIN?

US military veterans, retired law enforcement or retired firefighters.  Individuals that are still serving, whether active or non-active (reserves) are not eligible to win.

 

WHY ARE WE NOT INCLUDING ACTIVE AND NON-ACTIVE DUTY SERVICE MEMBERS?

We feel very strongly about recognizing, honoring and supporting ALL our service men and women.  However, we made the decision to have this contest open only to veterans and retired law enforcement and firefighters no longer serving because there have been situations within the last several years where people have targeted and hacked websites and social media to gain access to the personal information of our service men & women.  While the website being used for this contest is secure, we did not want to risk or sacrifice the safety of these heroes, by having their photos, names and stories so open to the public. 

 

HOW ARE THE FINALISTS DETERMINED & VERIFIED?

The public will vote for their favorite nominees between September 11—30th.  The TOP 5 from each category will move on to become finalists.  A Record Rack® employee will then reach out to each finalist via email and/or phone to verify eligibility (ex. DD214 or Retirement Letter).  Should we find that one of these finalists are not eligible, we will go to the next nominee with the most number of votes until we have our final 35 finalists.

 

HOW ARE THE WINNERS DETERMINED & ANNOUNCED?

A committee that includes Unite for the Brave partners, veterans, retired law enforcement and retired firefighters will be selecting the winner from each of the seven categories.  These 7 winners will be announced publicly via Facebook Live on Veteran’s Day, November 11th.  

 

WHAT DO THE WINNERS RECEIVE?

The seven winners will receive an all-inclusive hunt and meet and greet with Craig Morgan that will take place in January 2018 at Valdina Ranch in Hondo, Texas.  The prize includes airfare for two (if required), transportation, lodging (one room), meals, big game hunting license for winner, whitetail hunt for winner, trophy mount (shipping included) and other items as provided by Unite for the Brave partners.

 

IS THE WINNER’S GUEST ABLE TO HUNT AS WELL?

If the winner’s guest would like to hunt, we will provide a PREDATOR hunting license for them.  If time and weather allows, we will do our best to get them out predator hunting.   If the guest is interested in a whitetail hunt, they are responsible for purchasing their hunting license, the hunt itself, mount and freight.  Pricing will be provided upon request.
