Big Game and Big Fun
Ever notice how much easier it is to get up before dawn on the first day of hunting season than it is when you have to go to work? From the fresh morning air to the thrill you get when a big buck crosses your sights, a day on the hunt beats a day on the job anyway you look at it. That’s a feeling Mississippi hunters know well, too, since the Magnolia State offers some of the country’s finest wild game and plenty of chances for trophies. It’s not just white-tailed deer and wild turkey, either, as there’s one great new Mississippi game offering hunters an entirely unexpected kind of trophy: a brand-new ATV!
In fact, the Isle of Capri Casino® Hotel Lula will be giving away ATVs every weekend in October, as part of our “4-Wheelin’ Fun” promotion. When used safely and courteously, ATVs can be an essential tool for hunters, especially in the run up to the start of hunting season. As one example, David Hawkins, writing for the Mississippi Sportsman, recommends replanting food plots in August and September to attract a wide variety of animals. ATVs are ideal for getting seeds and tools out to the plot, and there can be an added benefit, according to the experts: Many report that getting deer and other animals familiar with the sound of ATVs before hunting season is a key to not spooking them once it begins.
After the season does open, be sure to follow both the law and your common sense. For instance, if you’ve gotten lucky enough to bag some big game and need to rely on your ATV to haul it out, wait until mid-day, after the morning’s shooting is over, to avoid being inconsiderate to other hunters.
You shouldn’t wait to get in on the action at the Isle of Capri® Lula, however. With the 4-Wheelin’ Fun promotion ending on October 31, time to win a new ATV is quickly running out. On the other hand, it’s easy to get started. Gamers can earn entries all month, and they’re guaranteed one free entry daily. They can then score additional entries for every 150 points won at the casino, which features some 900 slot and video-poker machines along with 20 table games. All the favorites are here, including roulette, craps, Mississippi Stud, blackjack and more, and Fan Club members can increase their chances of winning even further. Joining also happens to be free, with members able to redeem points for added advantages ranging from free room upgrades to Carnival Cruise Line benefits to daily food credits.
To win an ATV, be sure to be on hand for one of the qualifying drawings, being held on Fridays and Saturdays in October, at 7 p.m., 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. Just don’t forget to activate your entries 30 minutes beforehand. The grand prize drawings will be held on Saturdays at 11:30 p.m., and gamers do have to be present to win.
Catch some big game and big fun this season! You can do both at the Isle of Capri, one of the top Delta destinations for gaming, dining and nightlife!
