Todd Gilliland of California was the name on the winning ticket. We called Todd, and after a voicemail and a text message, we were able to pass on the good news. Todd will be Stone Sheep hunting this August with one of our Endorsed Outfitters.

Hey everybody. Here we are, Adam, Jeff, myself and Mindy. And we just drew the stone sheep winner.

00:00:08:21 –> 00:00:10:13
We did. I just, Mindy pulled

00:00:10:13 –> 00:00:10:23
It out.

00:00:10:27 –> 00:00:18:19
Pulled out the magic ticket. And who is it with? The winner is Todd Gilland from Palmdale, California.

00:00:19:21 –> 00:00:20:06
So Todd,

00:00:20:24 –> 00:00:21:24
We’re going give him a call.

00:00:22:01 –> 00:00:24:15
Palmdale, California. Here we go. Anybody know?

00:00:24:20 –> 00:00:27:17
See if he changed his mind since he bought tickets, if he still wants to go.

00:00:27:29 –> 00:00:50:10
I know a si an outfitter, but I don’t know Todd. Don’t know Todd. Here we go. All right, let’s give him a holler. Go ahead. You hit him up probably doing labs at the swimming pool.

00:00:50:26 –> 00:00:52:28
Tony, we call, let’s call it family. A few times.

00:00:58:07 –> 00:00:59:20
He’s looking at the number going

00:01:01:10 –> 00:01:02:04

00:01:02:11 –> 00:01:02:23

00:01:05:09 –> 00:01:06:10
Ignore, ignore.

00:01:08:02 –> 00:01:16:03
Hi, you’ve reached Todd Gilland with Gilland Masonry. I’m not available right now. Please leave your name and number. I’ll call you back as soon as I can. Thanks

00:01:16:03 –> 00:01:16:18
A lot. Go ahead.

00:01:19:13 –> 00:01:37:05
This message is for Todd. Todd, this is Adam Bronson and the Epic Outdoors crew. I’m not sure if you ever have an interest in hunting stone sheet, but if you do, you might want to call us back pretty quick. (435) 263-0777. Hope to hear from you soon.

00:01:39:02 –> 00:01:40:27
Oh, that nailed. That’s awesome.

00:01:42:05 –> 00:01:51:24
They, I’ll text him. I love it here. How about this, Todd, call me a S A P. Jason Carter Epic Outdoors. He’s

00:01:51:24 –> 00:01:54:23
Got a, oh yeah, he’s got a, he’s got an iPhone. His

00:01:54:23 –> 00:01:55:15
Phone’s falling off of

00:01:55:15 –> 00:01:56:27
His hand. He’s got an iPhone. It was

00:01:56:27 –> 00:01:57:28
Delivered. He doesn’t know what

00:01:57:28 –> 00:02:00:10
To do. He’s got a brick in one hand and loving the other.

00:02:02:26 –> 00:02:07:02
Hopefully he didn’t just fall off the scaffolding and blow out his knee and he can’t go on a hump.

00:02:07:06 –> 00:02:08:23
I wonder if he’s got Reed receipts on.

00:02:09:27 –> 00:02:11:16
How about that? That was quick. That was quick.

00:02:12:22 –> 00:02:14:03
This isn’t Todd, is it?

00:02:15:00 –> 00:02:16:26
Yeah. How’s it going, Jason? Good.

00:02:16:27 –> 00:02:17:17
How are you doing?

00:02:18:13 –> 00:02:24:26
Oh man, I’m just working right now. It’s pretty hot down in our country, about 104, so we’re just sweating away.

00:02:25:05 –> 00:02:28:02
I was wondering if you had a brick in one hand and mud in the other.

00:02:28:25 –> 00:02:31:24
Yeah, just running. We’re pouring concrete today, so

00:02:32:03 –> 00:02:33:14
Are you? Right on. Yeah.

00:02:33:20 –> 00:02:37:17
Well, this is Adam Bronson. You probably didn’t have a chance to listen to your voicemail, did you?

00:02:38:09 –> 00:02:47:00
No, no. I just saw a Utah number and then I saw a text message and I was like, oh crap. I better give them a call right now. Why?

00:02:47:29 –> 00:02:53:14
Why? What’s, why would we be that important today? Why would you think you’d need to take our call?

00:02:55:16 –> 00:03:00:01
I don’t know, but I’m, I’m, you guys got me pretty nervous right now. There’s,

00:03:00:01 –> 00:03:04:13
There’s only one reason we’d be calling you today, Todd. And you’re going stone sheep hunt.

00:03:05:01 –> 00:03:06:14
Are you kidding me? Huh?

00:03:06:19 –> 00:03:07:12
Holy crap.

00:03:08:19 –> 00:03:08:28

00:03:09:03 –> 00:03:11:11
Oh my gosh. I gotta pull over. Yeah,

00:03:11:26 –> 00:03:12:08

00:03:12:08 –> 00:03:13:06
Pull over. You’re not supposed to,

00:03:13:06 –> 00:03:13:24
That’s against the law.

00:03:14:03 –> 00:03:17:14
Not supposed to be texting or calling or doing any of those bad things while you’re driving.

00:03:17:18 –> 00:03:20:28
Todd. There’s a lot of things you’re not supposed to do in California, but,

00:03:23:21 –> 00:03:24:00

00:03:24:14 –> 00:03:26:04
You, you gotta be kidding me. No,

00:03:26:16 –> 00:03:28:07
No, we wouldn’t do that to anybody.

00:03:28:25 –> 00:03:29:19
Oh my gosh.

00:03:29:24 –> 00:03:32:08
Well, Mindy drew your name and we’re giving you holler.
