Gary Holk will be heading to Alaska on a moose hunt with his son next fall, thanks to a lucky number.

The fulfillment of a "lifetime dream" comes via a $5 Holiday Winnings lottery ticket, the Park Rapids resident purchasing the ticket Friday, Nov. 30 at Orton's.


Holk was sitting at home when he scratched the ticket and was "flabbergasted" to see he'd won $100,000.
