Travis Lienemann won Leica Geosystems’ “Go Hunting with Ted Nugent” sweepstakes, a promotion specially designed for ConExpo 2011 attendees.

Lienemann of MFT Construction, a utility and paving operation serving both Iowa and Nebraska won a three-day hunting trip with Nugent. Lienmann said, “I am thrilled to be the winner of the Leica Geosystems sweepstakes. Now, all I have to do is decide which buddy to take on the hunting trip with Ted Nugent, whom I will be thrilled to meet and hunt with.”

“Congratulations to Travis. This sweepstakes was a major hit at ConExpo,” said Mike Reed, machine control business manager, Leica Geosystems. “I thank our team for coming up with this unique, fun idea and also everyone who enjoyed participating in such an opportunity. The sweepstakes spread like wild fire and you could hear people talking about it in all the corners of the convention center.”

The grand prize consists of a hunting package for two people at Nugent's private birthday celebration at Y.O.Ranch in Mountain Home, Texas. The hunting package includes three days of hunting, meals, accommodations and guide. Animals in the package are either a management white tail or management sika buck. Lienemann has his choice of either bow or gun hunting with this package.

In addition to hunting, Lienemann and a friend will get to share meals and spend personal time with Nugent during this private birthday celebration.

The hunting trip will take place in December 2011.
