EP: 77 Winning a Dall Sheep Combo Hunt. In this episode of the Epic Outdoors Podcast we call the winner of the Dall Sheep Combo Hunt. After several tries with no luck we finally reach the winner, Dick Bird. This is one of the highlights of our year. Mr. Bird reacts with excitement and enthusiasm as can only be shown by someone who truly appreciates the opportunity of heading north to hunt sheep. Thanks to all our members who participated in referring friends to our service.

There we go.

00:01:04:00 –> 00:01:14:24
Kind of exciting. Come on,

00:01:18:21 –> 00:01:21:02
We are not telemarketers. Answer.

00:01:24:14 –> 00:01:26:08
Get out of the garden, answer the phone.

00:01:27:04 –> 00:01:28:28
Hudy, you’ve reached Dick. Oh,

00:01:29:18 –> 00:01:36:14
At the tone, please record your message. Tweet. When you have finished recording, say something. You may hang up or press one for more options.

00:01:38:13 –> 00:01:47:15
Dick. Hey, Jason Carter here and the guys here at Epic Outdoors. Just wanna visit with you for a minute. Give us a call when you can. Thanks man. Talk to you later. Bye. I don’t know what to

00:01:48:04 –> 00:01:49:11
Shoot. That sucks.

00:01:55:00 –> 00:01:56:09
Huddy, you’ve reached Dick.

00:01:56:29 –> 00:01:59:15
The price is right. Might be on right now. That’s what we’re

00:01:59:19 –> 00:02:06:09
Well, we’ve been calling Dick and he’s not answering and we left him a voicemail and we sent him a text and here we are.

00:02:07:20 –> 00:02:09:20
Do know he got the message and he is got an iPhone.

00:02:10:04 –> 00:02:15:02
Yeah, it went blue. Yeah. And it’s been delivered, so,

00:02:15:09 –> 00:02:24:27
But it could be sitting in the desert somewhere with a little bit of battery left. It fell out of his pocket somewhere. But it has service. That’s all it’s telling us. It

00:02:24:27 –> 00:02:26:11
Could be putting up a truck camera in Nevada

00:02:28:14 –> 00:02:32:02
Here. It could be pulling him down. Could be cool down. That’s a

00:02:32:02 –> 00:02:36:06
Good point too. That’s a good point. Better be down by August 1st.

00:02:41:29 –> 00:02:43:18
Kind of a suspenseful moment here.

00:02:48:11 –> 00:02:51:18

You have to splice that one number. Didn’t go through

This one. This one was a dud, right?

00:03:11:09 –> 00:03:16:20
Well, maybe he’s on the prices right, right now and he’s in the showcase Showdown.

00:03:18:00 –> 00:03:26:26
Sounded like we were gonna get the prices right there for a minute. Come on,
