00:00:01:22 –> 00:00:04:12
So where I was, there was bucks with kickers everything.

00:00:04:13 –> 00:00:05:18
Have you got a truck yet?

00:00:06:19 –> 00:00:06:25

00:00:07:14 –> 00:00:12:19
Can only do so much in the Chevy Malibu. That’s all we’re saying. Biggest dare in my life. In the Ford Taurus.

00:00:13:02 –> 00:00:14:11
Anything to do with Western Big Games?

00:00:17:20 –> 00:00:21:10
Welcome to the Epic Outdoors Podcast, powered by Under Armour.

00:00:21:24 –> 00:00:22:05

00:00:23:19 –> 00:00:28:02
Hey everybody. Jason Carter and the Epic Outdoors Crew. How are y’all? Good.

00:00:28:04 –> 00:00:28:13
I’m good.

00:00:28:18 –> 00:00:29:14
Hell yeah. How

00:00:29:14 –> 00:00:31:11
Good. Got the whole whole crew here.

00:00:32:01 –> 00:00:33:24
High. 80% I’d say. What was that little

00:00:33:29 –> 00:00:37:23
80%? Should have done that intro on Cinco de Mayo Carter.

00:00:38:04 –> 00:00:39:02
What was that? What was that?

00:00:39:09 –> 00:00:39:26
What was that?

00:00:40:01 –> 00:00:51:06
Hey, I don’t know. Just dude, I’ve just, the monster’s just now sinking in. Not supposed to drink these. Sean told me, my kid told me he’s got some kind of little drink that he’s mixing now. It’s got him wholly off. The energy drinks

00:00:51:28 –> 00:00:53:11
Loaded. That’s

00:00:53:27 –> 00:00:55:10
Perfectly great. It’s kinda like

00:00:55:10 –> 00:00:56:12
Double the caffeine and

00:00:56:19 –> 00:01:06:08
It’s kind like those tablet tablets to get you to quit doing nicotine. Right. You know, I mean, anyway, so he’s like, dad, I got an energy packet that’s got me off the energy drink. And I’m like, good job son. Good job.

00:01:06:18 –> 00:01:09:28
I, I mix it in water and I take it with two noos. He’s like, it’s,

00:01:09:28 –> 00:01:13:16
It fires me up. It’s awesome. And I’m like, wonder what’s in the packet?

00:01:14:04 –> 00:01:18:19
I went somewhere else with an 18 year old kid mixing drinks. No,

00:01:18:27 –> 00:01:44:10
No, not this kid. No New, new Wyatt. No. So anyway, like to thank Under Armour for sponsoring this podcast. Appreciate them. We got some new clothes coming out. Looks like maybe mid-July. Generally when they come out pretty quick. Yeah. Alright. All right. Well it’s been a while since we’ve met, I guess you guys, we’ve, we’ve sold what, four or five sets of optics today and you guys think you can have the rest of the day off and everybody’s in the podcast room.

00:01:45:19 –> 00:01:46:02
It’s better.

00:01:47:03 –> 00:02:04:05
The dust is settling a little bit from the membership drive from a lot of the draws. Arizona cards have been hit. There’s a few people that are anxiously wondering what they drew first or second choice should know any day. But for all intents and purposes, the

00:02:04:14 –> 00:02:07:01
Results are in. Yeah. And either you have tags or you don’t.

00:02:07:04 –> 00:02:08:14
The large ladies warming up.

00:02:11:15 –> 00:02:12:11
Okay. Okay.

00:02:13:06 –> 00:02:15:01
It’s about over for draws. That’s what I’m,

00:02:15:14 –> 00:02:24:05
Is that what you put down? That’s what I picked up. Is that you put down, I get it now. I got, I’ve fallen large lady. You

00:02:25:19 –> 00:02:29:23
Kind of be time to take the edge off a little bit. What I was saying.

00:02:30:11 –> 00:02:35:06
So we did, we did talk to the guy that won the Akma hunt. He called when y’all were out at

00:02:35:06 –> 00:02:36:12
The, it was just last week

00:02:37:13 –> 00:02:38:29
Or 15 minutes we had. Yeah,

00:02:40:17 –> 00:02:50:00
Jason gets, Jason gets after, says, Hey, you gotta be back here in 12 minutes. And they look at ourselves like we’re gonna get mocked for going to McDonald’s today. Because that’s the only thing I get there back in 12 minutes.

00:02:50:06 –> 00:02:57:10
It’s so funny ’cause why it’s so predictable. He knows where he is going. And one day in the last 326 days, he went to Mickey D’s.

00:02:57:17 –> 00:02:58:12
How? Tell us about it.

00:02:59:08 –> 00:03:01:24
So you’re gonna ride him for the next 304 days. Days.

00:03:02:04 –> 00:03:03:08
I dunno. A deadline day.

00:03:03:23 –> 00:03:08:08
There’s gotta be somebody there that told me he was a good guy. I don’t know why he would go to Mickey Key’s.

00:03:09:23 –> 00:03:12:06
Just happened to be a deadline day. And it was the place with

00:03:12:07 –> 00:03:17:00
A quick drive through. There you go. The line was the shortest. I I’m guilty of that too. So where did

00:03:17:07 –> 00:03:17:18
You guys go?

00:03:18:11 –> 00:03:18:23
We hit

00:03:18:23 –> 00:03:21:22
Subway. The subway today. Oh, there you go. Eat fresh. That’s

00:03:21:22 –> 00:03:29:06
Right. That’s good. Anyway, he called super excited. Couldn’t thank us enough. We, we had posted and emailed

00:03:30:02 –> 00:03:31:16
Podcast email. Yeah. About potential

00:03:31:16 –> 00:03:53:17
For Yeah. Getting your name in the hat. So anyway, it’s all about names in the hat. He bought a couple of tickets. One super excited. We’re way excited to see how he does. He’ll be writing a story coming out in the Epic Outdoors magazine. So the results are in, how does everybody look? How’s your schedules? Look you guys, you guys a bit busy. You got a weird look on your face. What do you mean? Well,

00:03:53:22 –> 00:03:54:28
He only looked at me. And why?

00:03:54:28 –> 00:03:56:14
Why and Devon have been busy. Bronson.

00:03:57:11 –> 00:03:58:17
Well, I don’t know. What do you mean?

00:03:58:19 –> 00:04:02:16
Well, Devon’s run a small trap line. Okay. Of truck cams. That’s

00:04:02:16 –> 00:04:20:23
Right. Devin, let’s just pose a few questions. What have you found? We are stealth cam dealers. By the way, it’s that time of year too. Those are flying out the door daily fusions, whether it be fusion cell phone cameras or Rev regular video or photo cameras. So it gives a

00:04:20:23 –> 00:04:22:16
Call. Four five pros, even a little cheaper one. That’s right.

00:04:22:29 –> 00:04:26:18
45 max twos. 45 pros lock boxes.

00:04:27:01 –> 00:04:28:00
Four K Max. Four

00:04:28:01 –> 00:04:32:00
K Max Fusion at t. Verizon. Verizon gotta

00:04:32:01 –> 00:04:33:17
Have service for those fusions.

00:04:34:00 –> 00:04:40:06
Yeah. Some people think that they make their own service so they tap into a satellite system. They don’t Well, they’ve gotta have service.

00:04:40:06 –> 00:04:41:26
Well works. You’d think it’d work out in the hills.

00:04:42:17 –> 00:04:43:13
Yeah. Check it first

00:04:43:14 –> 00:04:59:07
Anyway. But anyway. But that digress. But that was a quick plug for stealth cam. Back to you Devin. What have you found is one of the most effective techniques when you’re, when you’ve got a high traffic area or an area where you know something important’s gonna happen.

00:05:00:01 –> 00:05:00:10

00:05:00:10 –> 00:05:02:01
And you got activity, you wanna make sure you capture

00:05:02:15 –> 00:05:06:07
The moment. Got you got sing and crossing going on. What’s your cameras

00:05:06:08 –> 00:05:08:24
On one tree kind of thing. That was me. Yeah. Is

00:05:08:24 –> 00:05:11:29
That what it Friday two two on one Friday. Tell us about it. So did,

00:05:12:00 –> 00:05:16:16
What was, was it over Salt Lake? I mean, what was this gathering that was done?

00:05:16:18 –> 00:05:31:11
Just a little meadow. Just a little meadow. What did you call it? A, a grove of trees this time. Yeah. It looked like, no, I asked, asked my girlfriend to marry me and figured, you know, I knew where I was gonna do it. Had it carved in a quae tree. It’s private property. It’s legal part of

00:05:31:11 –> 00:05:31:18
It. Right.

00:05:33:19 –> 00:05:34:10
All you haters

00:05:34:21 –> 00:05:36:00
You’d done just, it was totally legal

00:05:36:06 –> 00:05:38:07
Part of it. You didn’t finish. Didn’t initial.

00:05:38:16 –> 00:05:47:07
No. Then I scratch speaking. I’m like, how cool would it be to have it on video? You know? So I got cameras. I got those new, well I had some older G 30 fours and

00:05:47:07 –> 00:05:48:22
Then the And the 45 max. The 45

00:05:48:22 –> 00:05:51:23
Max. So you did your own little test. All

00:05:51:23 –> 00:05:56:07
The different models. I set up six of them in 15 minutes. I wouldn’t, I was kind of in a hurry. Just

00:05:57:01 –> 00:05:57:07

00:05:57:07 –> 00:06:00:22
Settings. Maybe could have done slightly different. Yes. Triggers, trigger distance

00:06:00:23 –> 00:06:09:00
And all that. Feet distance. Radio vacs. I put one on the crotch of a tree right by the tree. And you could about see up my nose is about all you could see. At least you could hear me. But

00:06:09:04 –> 00:06:12:14
The end result, did you have some incredible pictures and video?

00:06:12:24 –> 00:06:13:23
A couple good pictures that

00:06:13:23 –> 00:06:13:28

00:06:14:04 –> 00:06:15:00
Video was okay.

00:06:15:01 –> 00:06:17:26
You only need one or two. It’s like a, like a money show with

00:06:17:26 –> 00:06:20:20
Your box. Yeah. You got us walking up. You see me on a knee. It worked out nice.

00:06:20:26 –> 00:06:22:05
Pretty impressive. Boss, boss

00:06:22:05 –> 00:06:24:16
Was there some, was there some models that didn’t work as well as others?

00:06:25:07 –> 00:06:26:13
Well, but you’re crisscrossing

00:06:26:15 –> 00:06:31:19
In different Well they’re pretty much all the same. I just didn’t do the distance. The distance on video was not enough. You missed your ex, right?

00:06:32:12 –> 00:06:32:20

00:06:33:02 –> 00:06:34:04
Oh yeah. I set up a brand.

00:06:34:04 –> 00:06:34:28
Oh. I thought meant

00:06:35:05 –> 00:06:35:28
I walk there.

00:06:36:09 –> 00:06:38:13
Whoa. I’m like, whoa. Sorry Mr.

00:06:39:01 –> 00:06:47:06
Proposing about that is true. I had a, my brothers, my brothers helped me for a minute and they’re like, you gotta go right here. And I said, well put a stick right here. I was like 10 feet over. Oh,

00:06:47:21 –> 00:06:49:19
You were off center. Well,

00:06:49:23 –> 00:07:00:11
Well the tree said marry me question mark. And it had a heart. And she walks up, she’s like, this is this. Somebody’s carved a heart in this one, you know? So I had to run over there. Where? To the tree. I missed myself. Show

00:07:00:11 –> 00:07:01:10
Me the tree. Where?

00:07:01:13 –> 00:07:02:19
Oh, what are the odds? Really?

00:07:02:21 –> 00:07:04:29
Wow. That was my great grandpa. She

00:07:04:29 –> 00:07:08:11
Had no idea. So it was cool. But the video, you know, it worked good. That’s awesome.

00:07:08:14 –> 00:07:11:06
Pretty impressive. Pretty impressive. Yeah. We’re good. Do

00:07:11:10 –> 00:07:11:11

00:07:11:11 –> 00:07:24:12
Wanna see, it’s impressive. We, we got a picture of it on our epic optics page if you wanna see what we’re talking about. That’s good. Yeah. I missed that. Awesome. Yeah, they can be used for a lot of, a lot of stuff. Home security systems in a pinch around the house for kids or,

00:07:25:01 –> 00:07:28:01
You know, you wearing a sidearm. I’m just wondering if you use that to coerce, sir.

00:07:28:20 –> 00:07:40:02
Jeff said, he said real men proposing camo and wearing a side arm or something like that. I didn’t even realize I was a little nervous. You know, I made sure the ring was in this pocket, had the knife. Well my, the tree

00:07:40:12 –> 00:07:42:20
Begs the question. If she have said no, what would’ve happened?

00:07:42:26 –> 00:07:43:25
Well, he had one in the pipe.

00:07:46:25 –> 00:07:56:11
It’s just, it all went well. It’s a, it makes, I don’t need to tell my story. Probably you or you either. It’s borings, nothing. Mine’s boring compared to that.

00:07:56:27 –> 00:07:57:10

00:07:57:17 –> 00:08:07:26
Well, I’ve had a lot of alone time and years to think about it. I guess that’s like, I love this spot, you know? Yeah, it was, it was. I’ve known I was gonna do it right there since I was a kid. Probably. So. That’s

00:08:07:26 –> 00:08:09:19
Awesome. Pretty awesome.

00:08:09:25 –> 00:08:10:19
So how long ago

00:08:10:19 –> 00:08:14:19
Did you carve the tree? The Mary? About a year, year and a half. It was like last June. Probably about a year.

00:08:14:24 –> 00:08:16:28
About a year part. And not the initials, the hard the first time

00:08:16:28 –> 00:08:17:24
Was running cameras last year

00:08:18:04 –> 00:08:20:04
You had the d and a hard or something like, like that

00:08:20:04 –> 00:08:22:20
You knew. You kind of knew maybe it would be her, right? Because you’ve been dating. Oh

00:08:22:20 –> 00:08:24:14
Yeah. I knew I was better. Was better.

00:08:24:27 –> 00:08:28:12
But you didn’t do that until last week. The final initials. Yeah, the

00:08:28:12 –> 00:08:29:17
Final initials. Sweet.

00:08:30:09 –> 00:08:31:07
Put the initials in there. There.

00:08:31:10 –> 00:08:33:06
Carve it in, lock it in there

00:08:33:11 –> 00:08:35:23
It go it in. If anything bad happens, I’m cutting it down.

00:08:36:16 –> 00:08:38:10
Bad windstorm come up and it’s gone.

00:08:38:24 –> 00:08:41:22
It’s gone. And there’s a new tree. New heart.

00:08:41:29 –> 00:08:42:07

00:08:42:28 –> 00:08:44:16
Oh, well, okay. Let’s see

00:08:44:20 –> 00:08:46:17
Why. What? You been up to me? Oh geez.

00:08:47:07 –> 00:08:48:05
You’ve been shoveling.

00:08:48:06 –> 00:08:57:28
Shoveling. Yeah, honey. Do I guess what you guys call him now? Wt Wyatt’s taken up, what we call him a green thumb. He’s been doing some gardening and stuff. Some landscaping. Landscaping,

00:08:57:28 –> 00:09:00:29
Yeah. I don’t know about gardening, but a little bit of landscaping. Yeah. Really?

00:09:01:07 –> 00:09:02:14
What, what for? Oh

00:09:02:14 –> 00:09:04:29
Geez. I guess for a upcoming wedding too.

00:09:05:16 –> 00:09:07:24
Really? Oh, for our whose

00:09:07:24 –> 00:09:10:12
Wedding? No, I, I also got engaged recently too. Wow.

00:09:10:23 –> 00:09:13:18
This is, there’s something in the, something in the monster around here

00:09:13:28 –> 00:09:16:00
About a week before Devon, so, yeah.

00:09:17:02 –> 00:09:20:17
Geez. Wow. Pretty amazing. We we’re teasing. Why? Because

00:09:20:20 –> 00:09:28:06
He’s, they get solid jobs and then the women, women come in and want to tie him down. I’m seeing a correlation there. No, she,

00:09:28:08 –> 00:09:30:11
She’s got a pretty solid job too. So maybe

00:09:30:16 –> 00:09:49:10
I was, maybe it’s worked the other way around. Okay. Alright. But the funny thing, we’re teasing why is Yeah, he’s, you know, with this covid and stuff, he’s gotta do outdoor, well maybe it’s not just ’cause of that, but doing the reception or whatever that can be be called now in the backyard. So you got, you got some landscaping. Get in

00:09:49:14 –> 00:09:50:20
A protest. You can have more people there.

00:09:52:13 –> 00:09:53:13
That is true. Wedding.

00:09:54:06 –> 00:09:55:12
Bring a sign and I

00:09:55:12 –> 00:09:56:07
Pick protest. You’re

00:09:57:06 –> 00:10:01:05
Together. We’re waiting for that line. Speak now or forever hold your peace. We’re gonna just, I

00:10:01:05 –> 00:10:03:10
Don’t think she’s good for you. I’m here to protest.

00:10:04:07 –> 00:10:06:20
We can bring in another 250 people. Here’s a little

00:10:06:20 –> 00:10:08:26
Gift in case you wanna go ahead and go through with it.

00:10:10:14 –> 00:10:13:13
So that’s pretty awesome. You guys. You

00:10:13:13 –> 00:10:15:26
Guys are, well, how did that go down? Tell us your little engagement.

00:10:15:27 –> 00:10:22:11
My little story. Yeah. So I don’t have any plugs for stealth cam, but I can plug Jason’s wife’s business. There you go. The

00:10:22:11 –> 00:10:23:18
Sign. Yeah. So

00:10:23:19 –> 00:10:33:08
Anyways, I, I kind of had something planned up around her hometown and then she ended up texting me the night before about 1130 at night saying, Hey, we’re loaded up and headed to Lake Powell. Big curve ball.

00:10:33:28 –> 00:10:34:07
Her favorite,

00:10:34:28 –> 00:10:36:10
Her favorite place on earth. Similar

00:10:36:11 –> 00:10:38:07
To, similar to Devon’s Meadow. And

00:10:38:07 –> 00:10:41:05
It’s hardly ever I’m awake at 1130 to see the text message.

00:10:42:02 –> 00:10:45:01
They’re leaving that night. The next morning

00:10:45:03 –> 00:10:48:13
They just said, we’re leaving the next morning going to Powell. We just decided, do you

00:10:48:13 –> 00:10:48:24
Wanna come?

00:10:49:11 –> 00:10:51:17
And you’re like, well this is kind of your birthday weekend. Yeah,

00:10:51:17 –> 00:10:53:19
Yeah. Like it’s, it’s your birthday weekend. Did the

00:10:53:19 –> 00:10:55:28
Father-in-law know that you were gonna propose that weekend?

00:10:56:16 –> 00:10:58:17
He did not. No. No one, no one had an idea.

00:10:58:27 –> 00:10:59:25
You had asked him, right? Yeah,

00:11:00:00 –> 00:11:03:04
I had talked to him, yeah, the weekend before. I’d already talked to him after his kids

00:11:03:04 –> 00:11:03:13
Were grease

00:11:03:14 –> 00:11:04:19
Like that. So it was all

00:11:04:29 –> 00:11:10:01
He gave you, he gave you the one eye. Did he lift one eyebrow and be like, listen here, son.

00:11:10:08 –> 00:11:14:24
It was a, I don’t know, I was pretty nervous going into it, but it was actually pretty good. Pretty good talk. I mean, it was,

00:11:14:27 –> 00:11:16:06
You have your sidearm on. He’s

00:11:16:06 –> 00:11:20:08
Gonna be, I went in onar arms of all That’s pretty good.

00:11:20:11 –> 00:11:21:01
You never know them.

00:11:21:14 –> 00:11:23:23
Snakes, lions, bears, you never know. Yeah.

00:11:24:19 –> 00:12:03:05
So anyway, I went on in, on unarmed anyway, but, so then she texts me that night, tells me, you know, they’re going to Powell the next morning. So I, I know the ring’s supposed to show up at the office the next morning too. And it’s the Arizona deadline of course too. So, and Jason and Adam, they take off to a shooting school. That’s right. Leaves the office unmanned. Basically just got made, we had to do some brainstorming of the curve ball at Lake Powell. Yeah. So there I am like, yeah, we’re pretty slammed. So I tell her like, I don’t think I, I can make it over to Lake Powell and, and play it off. Like, eh, I don’t think there’s anything they can do. And Jason, Adam are gone, you know, just office can’t handle it without all us gone, you know, it needs

00:12:03:29 –> 00:12:06:18
Somebody just like, it needs me right now and I’m in a podcast room. Somebody’s

00:12:06:18 –> 00:12:23:23
Gotta be here. Anyways, ended up talking to her. The ring showed up in the office, ended up kind of throwing a plan together with, you know, Jan and the girls here at the office a little bit what to do. And headed over towards Lake Powell as I was calling her father and trying to get him to say

00:12:23:23 –> 00:12:27:22
Where you guys are gonna be camped, how can I raid your camp? Set up some signs and it was

00:12:27:22 –> 00:12:28:23
40 mile an hour wind. Oh

00:12:28:23 –> 00:12:44:19
Yeah. Get any details And yeah, it was just windy, windy, windy. And anyways, as I get over there, I kind of, you know, sit because I, of course before dark, he kind of figured the wind’s gonna die down. And I end up sitting over there in my truck for about two hours. Just nervous as could be. Just, well,

00:12:44:20 –> 00:12:50:20
Joan says, all you did was pace the office. She’s like, I’ve never seen Wyatt like this. Like

00:12:50:24 –> 00:12:51:19
I, I can say I

00:12:51:19 –> 00:12:53:01
Haven’t either. Well,

00:12:53:01 –> 00:13:00:19
There’re big moments, boys. I mean, both of you, it, both of, you’re a little bit outta your comfort zone for the last two, three weeks.

00:13:00:19 –> 00:13:05:00
Nobody should be comfortable asking women, Miriam. ’cause that means it’s happened too many times. That’s

00:13:05:00 –> 00:13:05:04

00:13:06:07 –> 00:13:07:24
That’s true. That’s right. That’s right.

00:13:08:02 –> 00:13:08:08

00:13:09:02 –> 00:13:17:04
Anyways, get over there and finally, like, we’ve got about an hour before dark and her dad texts me and he’s like, Hey, I just sent her out on a boat ride. Like, now’s your chance.

00:13:17:09 –> 00:13:18:13
It’s white cap and it’s

00:13:18:13 –> 00:13:19:14
White cap. They’re

00:13:19:14 –> 00:13:20:22
Not, they’re not gonna be gone long.

00:13:21:28 –> 00:13:23:25
You’re like, oh geez.

00:13:24:07 –> 00:13:28:24
So I drive down in there and get all, everything kind of, kind of set up, get the signs, everything like

00:13:28:24 –> 00:13:34:17
That. These signs. You’re p you’re put, it’s not just a sign on a sheet of paper. This is, you’re putting ’em into the sand. Individual letters. Yeah. Yeah.

00:13:34:17 –> 00:13:35:13
Huge. And I’ve got

00:13:35:14 –> 00:13:36:29
Hearts and big, big letters.

00:13:37:05 –> 00:13:47:07
Got her. She’s a, they’re family there. A lot of family there. So I’ve got a lamb trailer kind of helping me and we’re just barely getting it all kind of situated and lined out. And they texted her like, the water’s just nasty. We’re coming back.

00:13:47:22 –> 00:13:47:29

00:13:48:29 –> 00:13:49:22
You’re like, oh,

00:13:49:23 –> 00:13:53:14
So you, you gotta spell it right now. ’cause now you’re, you’re gonna misspell something. I’m

00:13:53:14 –> 00:13:54:22
Tap misspell her name. Yeah.

00:13:54:22 –> 00:14:12:18
Taping ’em together too. So the wind just doesn’t blow ’em away. She’s coming by and I’ve got a dozen roses in my hand as she comes rolling up the do the roses are just getting blown away. I’m surprised there was anything but not scams left, you know, like it was pretty bad. But anyway, she rolled up.

00:14:12:18 –> 00:14:13:11
She got the picture though.

00:14:13:18 –> 00:14:17:29
Yeah, she rolled up in the boat. She says that was the scariest boat ride in my life. But by the way,

00:14:17:29 –> 00:14:19:16
What’s it ended? What’s this sign? Yeah.

00:14:20:02 –> 00:14:20:11

00:14:20:12 –> 00:14:20:20

00:14:20:21 –> 00:14:22:07
Yeah. No. So it worked out well.

00:14:22:11 –> 00:14:26:04
Very good. Awesome. And then everybody on the beach, everybody’s cheering y’all.

00:14:26:04 –> 00:14:34:13
Yeah. Even the people from the res next to us, they were clapping and yelling for us. I mean there was a lot of people on the beach that day and Oh yeah. Everyone was kind of sheltered to

00:14:34:25 –> 00:14:36:06
Probably ’cause Yeah, they couldn’t be on the boat.

00:14:36:07 –> 00:14:37:01
The wind. Yeah. Yeah,

00:14:37:15 –> 00:14:39:23
Yeah. Well you two guys or

00:14:41:11 –> 00:14:50:11
You’re, you’re destined to have a lot of interesting moments from now on. Didn’t know how to say that. They just laugh.

00:14:50:22 –> 00:14:53:23
The large woman came out easy, but I couldn’t know what to say right now.

00:14:55:25 –> 00:14:56:01

00:14:56:12 –> 00:15:18:01
Awesome. So, but anyway, congratulations. Thank you both you, it’s awesome. Yeah, we like your gals and it’ll be fun both of you talking before hunt. That’s the other questions. Yeah, they’re talking before the bulk of the hunt. So Augustish, I don’t know when that is date exact, but that’s very soon. Get you going before, you know, you can’t have an anniversary in the heart of no

00:15:18:06 –> 00:15:18:20

00:15:18:20 –> 00:15:24:06
Season. No, it’s just not. Didn’t do that Jason. No, yours is the first week of August, wasn’t it? Yeah,

00:15:24:06 –> 00:15:26:13
But I left August 10th. I I had August. Yeah,

00:15:26:13 –> 00:15:28:18
But that was the doll sheep hunt doesn’t happen

00:15:28:18 –> 00:15:30:25
Every year with no cell phone. Remember this is 96. I

00:15:30:25 –> 00:15:30:29

00:15:31:14 –> 00:15:36:17
No, no cell phone, no inReach, no nothing. And she, she couldn’t believe that I left and never called her for

00:15:36:17 –> 00:15:36:26
10 days.

00:15:37:04 –> 00:15:47:16
Never called her. You got married and left. And I left. Yeah, I got married. Well the married on the second. I was hunting in the field on the 10th. So you gotta leave her around the eighth or seventh anyway. And she’s like, and he never

00:15:47:16 –> 00:15:48:17
Called me. He left me,

00:15:48:22 –> 00:15:54:20
He never called me. And I’m thinking, yeah, there’s no phones, there’s no landlines. So anyway,

00:15:54:22 –> 00:16:00:02
It was like quiet was talking the other day of setting a precedence or something like that. What? That’s a good precedence. Oh yeah.

00:16:00:06 –> 00:16:02:28
What were you talking? He just following the lead accord. Yeah,

00:16:03:09 –> 00:16:15:01
Don’t do that. Do not do that. And Wyatt’s saying, you know, you never prepped me for anyway. Did you end up, you ended up, well you were gonna run trail cameras this last Saturday. What’d you end up doing?

00:16:15:08 –> 00:16:21:00
I ended up up north shopping for a suit. You gotta, you never

00:16:21:00 –> 00:16:24:19
Warned me, but she says I gotta shop for a suit in the next 12 hours.

00:16:26:18 –> 00:16:39:13
Exactly. Was that. Had no idea that all this stuff would come along. And I figured it could all be done on my terms and anything like that. But no, I got told what to do the other day. I’m like, do I, do I give in? They’re like, does it set a precedence for the whole marriage?

00:16:40:19 –> 00:16:47:16
And he asked him for of Jana, you know, Jason, I’m just wondering, do I give in or am I setting a precedent and I’m looking at Jana

00:16:48:08 –> 00:16:51:13
Wyatt much? Do I get push back? When do you push back and when do you not?

00:16:52:23 –> 00:16:53:07
I don’t know.

00:16:54:08 –> 00:16:56:16
I think you’re doing good, Wyatt. Welcome to the rest

00:16:56:16 –> 00:16:56:29
Of your life.

00:16:58:02 –> 00:17:01:12
Give in right now this early. I mean, is it, is it like that forever?

00:17:01:20 –> 00:17:04:04
Let’s talk about those things. When Jana goes to lunch with the girls,

00:17:04:11 –> 00:17:05:07
She’s not here now.

00:17:05:19 –> 00:17:07:19
I mean, why do we have to do it in front of her? Geez.

00:17:09:04 –> 00:17:09:26
Pretty fun.

00:17:09:29 –> 00:17:17:19
You’ll do fine. I, I don’t know. Did you guys tell ’em that you had some hunts lined up before you guys got engaged? Or are they helping you align your hunting schedule for this fall?

00:17:18:07 –> 00:17:20:18
I put Miranda through two seasons already. So she’s,

00:17:20:21 –> 00:17:24:10
She’s sad. They’ve kind of known. Yeah, she’s solid. Both of them know. That’s good. Yeah.

00:17:24:10 –> 00:17:25:25
They know. They know what they’re gonna do. Yeah.

00:17:26:05 –> 00:17:30:13
My wife didn’t know, but I mean, we, she asked if I was a hunter and I

00:17:30:13 –> 00:17:31:29
Casually Your story’s pretty

00:17:31:29 –> 00:17:33:13
Funny. Yeah, we’ve already gone over that. I’m a

00:17:33:13 –> 00:17:34:10
Hunter and a gatherer

00:17:34:29 –> 00:17:39:23
Possibly. I love to provide for my wife and kids. I’m a provider.

00:17:40:28 –> 00:17:42:00
I am a, I provide

00:17:42:14 –> 00:17:45:10
That’s right. Something like that. That’s how it went.

00:17:45:24 –> 00:17:49:29
Yeah. When we talked about it, it was either August or next spring. So

00:17:49:29 –> 00:17:51:05
Yeah, it’s like it’s time.

00:17:51:09 –> 00:17:51:18

00:17:51:23 –> 00:17:52:17
I tried to suggest that

00:17:52:17 –> 00:17:57:10
Pretty much it’s not gonna work. Yeah, no, it’s either August, it’s in other

00:17:57:10 –> 00:17:58:25
Words held off. It’s August. Yeah. As long

00:17:58:25 –> 00:17:59:06
As you were busy.

00:17:59:20 –> 00:18:03:23
Hold off. It’s either August or next spring. And basically she said it’s August. Yep.

00:18:04:05 –> 00:18:04:12

00:18:04:12 –> 00:18:05:08
You said, I said

00:18:05:18 –> 00:18:06:25
I get it. I get it. Yes ma’am.

00:18:07:04 –> 00:18:07:11

00:18:07:17 –> 00:18:09:04

Yep. Gonna be fun. Chris, where does that leave you? Where does that leave us? Oh, just

00:18:21:06 –> 00:18:21:16

00:18:24:09 –> 00:18:33:25
Three bachelors are no more the three Migos. No, Chris is silent. Chris is just working the keyboard. Alright, so I got a lot of technical stuff over here guys. I, I’m plugging and playing. I have

00:18:33:25 –> 00:18:38:19
A feeling McKenzie’s listening too. Chris, she’s very interested in your response.

00:18:40:08 –> 00:18:43:22
Go ahead. I

00:18:43:22 –> 00:18:44:28
Think there’s some levels off

00:18:44:28 –> 00:18:45:05

00:18:46:26 –> 00:18:47:14
You ought to see

00:18:47:18 –> 00:18:48:20
Isn’t that just the volume?

00:18:49:20 –> 00:18:51:28
I dunno. Oh, Jason’s track just got muted.

00:18:52:27 –> 00:18:53:22
Can’t Jason’s

00:18:53:22 –> 00:18:56:12
Gone. Can’t blow any, can’t blow any secrets. That’s

00:18:56:12 –> 00:19:03:00
Right. Yeah. Oh yeah. That’s how he’s getting. Get I, Hey guys, I can’t, I That’s a good answer. I’ll tell you. But I’d have to kill You can’t reveal

00:19:03:03 –> 00:19:04:05
Any cards at this point.

00:19:05:29 –> 00:19:07:05

00:19:07:22 –> 00:19:15:05
That’s right. Well you did come out with a little YouTube video your music video. Yeah,

Easy way to do it. Go check that out. Go check it out. Made

Made a few honeys. Sad. Lost 10,000

00:19:43:25 –> 00:19:51:10
Female followers. But hey. Okay. Alright.

00:19:51:10 –> 00:19:52:10
Thanks. Moving right along.

00:19:53:11 –> 00:19:54:20
We’re a hunting business. Let’s talk

00:19:54:20 –> 00:20:11:26
About honey. That’s right. Well we, we’ve talked enough about these three bachelors. We had to go in. We had to, this is the first unveiling. So anyway, you, you, any of our listeners are members of Call now. You’ll know that. Give some, when you get these guys on the phone, give them some words of wisdom. Feel free. They’re

00:20:11:26 –> 00:20:12:08
Gonna need it.

00:20:13:01 –> 00:20:13:14
Most likely.

00:20:15:01 –> 00:20:20:02
So what else we got to talk about? We got a new announcement from Swarovski.

00:20:20:08 –> 00:20:21:02
Yeah, we did. We

00:20:21:02 –> 00:20:21:18
Talk about that

00:20:22:14 –> 00:20:38:18
Department. We did. In fact, you guys, we were running, we were out scouting John and Adam and I for our hunt winter. We’ve got a mulder hunt that we’re gonna put on in Nevada from back in the winter membership drive by doing. So we missed the new announcement with Swarovski. You guys were on the horn with ’em. Tell us a little bit about it. Wyatt. Devin.

00:20:39:04 –> 00:20:57:24
So they come out with a new pair of binoculars. It’s supposed to be better than the ELs I guess. I guess not necessarily better, but in a diff step up. A step up from the ELs. I guess that’s the only way to put it. ELs are amazing, but you’re supposed to have a wider field of view. They’re gonna come in the eight to 10 and 12 by 42 power binos

00:20:58:22 –> 00:21:00:18
And they’ll pure, that’s what they’re calling them.

00:21:00:18 –> 00:21:10:25
Different shape to their body. Supposed to be able to fit in your hands really well. So a guy can hold ’em real steady. And they also have a headrest thing that can plug right in. That’s supposed to help with stabilization as well.

00:21:11:18 –> 00:21:15:18
Probably on the 12 power, I would say mostly. I mean, I can’t imagine using stabilization with h

00:21:15:25 –> 00:21:21:04
I don’t even use that thing on the B T X. I don’t know. I think it’ll be a personal preference. Don’t you guys probably. Yeah, you

00:21:21:04 –> 00:21:23:12
Could definitely, you could put a rubber band all the way around. It’d be,

00:21:23:15 –> 00:21:51:06
Yeah, just suck ’em to your head. But hey, they’re pretty neat though. We’re taking pre-orders for those. Those will be, be able to receive them and ship ’em by around the 1st of September. But we’re taking pre-orders for ’em now. So if you’re interested in pricing and things like that, we’re very aggressive on that. Give us a call. 4 3 5 2 6 3 0 7 7 7. If you wanna siding news, if you wanna see a photo, there’s a post on the epic optics page. Has a picture of those so you can see ’em and check ’em out.

00:21:51:06 –> 00:22:15:23
Basically Instagram basically. Same body by 42. Yeah. Instagram. 10 by 40 twos, 12 by 42. Same body, different powers. And then I guess they have 20% more field of view. The color’s better. It’s, they say it’s off the charts. They say when you remember how we had the SLCs and then you go and look through the ELSs and there was a wow factor. Remember those back when the ELs first came out? They said that’s what you feel like when you look through these, the L n

00:22:15:23 –> 00:22:16:04
L peers.

00:22:16:10 –> 00:22:31:08
We’ll see. Pretty excited. Pure. Yeah. Kind of cool. Super excited about it. Of course. We’ll have some of the best pricing out there. We will for sure. All right, so anyway, that happened. What else? What else we got going on?

00:22:31:20 –> 00:22:34:12
Was there any good stories from setting cameras for the hunt winners yesterday?

00:22:34:25 –> 00:22:35:12
Good stories.

00:22:36:01 –> 00:22:36:25
Anything we missed out on

00:22:38:20 –> 00:22:40:26
Well outta stores? Well, John fell asleep. Ah,

00:22:41:17 –> 00:22:54:23
Well about a 4:00 AM Cannonball run, smash and grab. That’s bound to happen after you eat a sandwich and you’re not driving. So nobody’s life depends upon you. No, you know, nodding off. Thankfully Carter kept alive. Yeah.

00:22:55:00 –> 00:22:59:16
Kept you awake. Woke you up a couple of times. John drifted a couple of times, huh? Yeah,

00:22:59:17 –> 00:23:08:08
A couple times. But it’s all good. No, I, I pretty uneventful day other than just getting a lot done. I’ve been more nervous in your car before. You know, that was, that was

00:23:08:08 –> 00:23:18:19
Easy. Makes me feel good. Yeah, that was a good day. It’s no problem. It was a good day. Yep. So anyway, appreciate the tire company for those tires, John. They they definitely kept us up on all us. Four. They kept us out outta the ditch. Yeah. How about that?

00:23:19:12 –> 00:23:21:29
Grabbed? They grabbed just in time.

00:23:23:07 –> 00:23:24:18
Yeah, they did. That was a real,

00:23:24:24 –> 00:23:26:01
There was a sharp corner,

00:23:26:01 –> 00:23:28:23
Loose gravel, sharp corner. John was, they

00:23:28:26 –> 00:23:32:23
Grabbed just in time to turn us and keep us safe. John’s

00:23:32:25 –> 00:24:04:10
Clicking the seatbelt just as, yeah. Anyway. All right. So yeah. Lots of fun. Lots of change going on here. You know, one thing, as we’re getting prepped for the fall, one of the big purchases and things we, that goes through our mind. A, we’re in the truck. What happens when you need it? We’re outta cell service all day. You got to load your truck with gear, load your truck with anything and everything. But some, you also have to have a truck to put gear in. And that reminds me, Bronson, is Aaron bought a truck yet?

00:24:04:19 –> 00:24:10:17
No. And, and what we talked about on that podcast a month or two ago, three whenever it’s been, it was right when

00:24:11:01 –> 00:24:17:18
Figuring he wouldn’t have a truck till September 2nd when his first hunt is September 1st. Yeah. And it would probably be borrowing your truck.

00:24:17:18 –> 00:24:24:28
Yeah. Or my dad’s. ’cause you know, dad has two and like, I think you, you know, when you know dad’s got a couple trucks, you’re safe. What’s,

00:24:24:28 –> 00:24:26:18
You don’t need to buy one. No. Let’s

00:24:26:18 –> 00:24:30:07
See if and lots everywhere if you’re noticing are depleting.

00:24:30:08 –> 00:24:32:05
Okay. And if you listen to our podcast, did we not

00:24:32:05 –> 00:24:59:19
Warn it? We predicted it. We warned it. Yeah. We we’re very in tune with the vehicle market. Let’s see if he’s made up. May see if he made any progress. Well, even if the, the funny thing is just a plan. The funny thing is we’ve talked to other people. I mean, I think Kevin call from Arizona. We all know Kevin call Hypo and Outfitters. He listened to that podcast. He happened to be shopping for a truck. Yeah. And so he reaches out ’cause he hears Aaron, how methodical, I’m gonna use that word, different from another word, methodical in his search.

00:24:59:19 –> 00:25:00:07

00:25:01:16 –> 00:25:13:23
No, there’s another word. I like that word. Yeah. So anyway, he, he used all of Aaron’s knowledge and went and he found one in New Mexico and bought it and re you know, returned and told us about it. It, listen

00:25:13:23 –> 00:25:18:00
To the pod podcast. Found a steal of a deal on a 19 ax. Bought it.

00:25:18:00 –> 00:25:19:14
Bought it, and tell about it.

00:25:19:19 –> 00:25:20:01
Join it.

00:25:20:02 –> 00:25:23:13
And basically the same truck scouting Aaron’s looking for. I mean, and Aaron

00:25:23:25 –> 00:25:28:28
Continues to use the wife’s car. Okay, let’s call Aaron. See what the heck what his plan is.

00:25:30:27 –> 00:25:36:00
He could screen these now. We’ve done this one too many times. Kinda like Jeff.

00:25:36:10 –> 00:25:36:20

00:25:37:01 –> 00:25:40:02
Hey, I found a truck for you. It’s a 1970s. Hi boy. You ready?

00:25:40:23 –> 00:25:41:07
Hi boy.

00:25:42:07 –> 00:25:42:16

00:25:42:16 –> 00:25:43:11
Got 30 fives.

00:25:45:07 –> 00:25:47:28
We just, it’s been four months. We’re checking back.

00:25:48:17 –> 00:25:48:29
We just

00:25:49:08 –> 00:25:49:17

00:25:49:17 –> 00:25:50:10
You got a truck yet?

00:25:51:07 –> 00:25:51:13

00:25:52:06 –> 00:25:53:04
Have you got a plan?

00:25:54:06 –> 00:25:58:23
I don’t. My plans have all gone through the, through the window. They’re all out. What

00:25:58:23 –> 00:26:01:10
Are they sold you? Or what’s the deal? What’s

00:26:01:27 –> 00:26:03:24
Trucks are a premium right now. Oh,

00:26:04:04 –> 00:26:04:18
There we

00:26:04:18 –> 00:26:07:29
Go with the, with the shutdown. They’re the premium. So yeah. I’m,

00:26:08:16 –> 00:26:17:02
So when, when Adam and I on the last podcast talked about may possibility that the lots would be empty in July-ish. Are you finding that feature?

00:26:17:02 –> 00:26:18:10
Do you think we were crazy at that time?

00:26:19:00 –> 00:26:22:16
I didn’t think you were crazy. I’d been hearing the same thing, but no, it, it’s true.

00:26:23:09 –> 00:26:24:16
Not no more

00:26:24:16 –> 00:26:28:26
Trucks to buy. They’re not empty. They, no. ’cause you can go out there and find one is all you can find

00:26:28:26 –> 00:26:30:02
Was rubber floorboards. Yeah.

00:26:30:20 –> 00:26:36:14
Yeah. But like a base model or something. Or they just like, say they’re at a premium. Even the used ones now are fetching high dollar. So

00:26:36:14 –> 00:26:37:25
Sticker price, take or

00:26:37:25 –> 00:26:48:05
Leave it. I’ve shot myself in the foot. Yeah, because they, they, there’s no like, oh, can you work with me? Well, no I can’t. ’cause I got four guys behind you that want the truck too. So I really myself Seems

00:26:48:05 –> 00:26:52:11
Like we talked about all these problems. Seems like we’ve talked about these. Did we

00:26:52:11 –> 00:26:54:10
Not? No. You did not. Well,

00:26:54:10 –> 00:26:56:11
Well, and you guys, they went without saying

00:26:56:29 –> 00:27:04:19
Like, it was gonna be my fault because I was picky and they had to have everything exactly right. Including, I’m not even being picky, including

00:27:04:21 –> 00:27:08:00
Bi, including being priced at 10,000 below boat. Blue book.

00:27:09:05 –> 00:27:09:12

00:27:10:02 –> 00:27:10:08

00:27:10:16 –> 00:27:13:26
And owned and owned by a widow. They never put

00:27:13:26 –> 00:27:16:01
A four wheel. Yeah. Owned by a widow garage.

00:27:16:10 –> 00:27:17:02
No, I’m not even

00:27:17:19 –> 00:27:20:14
Four miles a month. So now now’s

00:27:20:14 –> 00:27:21:12
Not owe you on my end.

00:27:21:20 –> 00:27:28:18
So what’s your even, it’s not your fault. What if it’s not your fault? You don’t own a truck. So now let’s move on. What’s your contingency plan?

00:27:29:03 –> 00:27:33:08
What, what’s in the, what’s in the cross? Theres maybe our listeners can help you find some, maybe

00:27:33:08 –> 00:27:35:17
Adam needs to buy a truck. Where are we at? No. Yeah,

00:27:35:23 –> 00:27:38:20
If Adam can find one down there, then yeah, we’d be fired.

00:27:38:25 –> 00:27:41:19
I got a, I got a power wagon right down here on the lot still.

00:27:41:24 –> 00:27:43:04
Adam did buy a little Toyota.

00:27:44:08 –> 00:27:46:20
I know he is got three now. So I’m sitting pretty good.

00:27:47:12 –> 00:27:50:11
There we go. There was the plan. There’s the plan.

00:27:51:08 –> 00:27:54:10
He already knows the contingency plan. There’s no urgency.

00:27:54:29 –> 00:27:59:17
If you want my help, you need to provide a vehicle. If you

00:27:59:17 –> 00:28:03:16
Were, if you were riding a bus to work up there every day, I’ll bet you’d get a truck found.

00:28:04:06 –> 00:28:04:28
I probably would.

00:28:06:03 –> 00:28:11:17
Well, what, what do you narrowed it down to? You still back to diesel Chevy Durmax. Is that where we settle? I, yeah.

00:28:11:17 –> 00:28:14:20
I’m pretty hard. I’m pretty hard on the diesel. Yeah. We’ve

00:28:14:20 –> 00:28:22:05
Already talked about the other guys that listened to the first podcast, went out, found the same truck you’re looking for and they didn’t have a problem buying it. They just bought it. Hey, they’re

00:28:22:05 –> 00:28:30:02
Closer. They’re closer to New Mexico. He found his in New Mexico, by the way. And he’s a lot closer than I am to New Mexico. So he got the jump on me I guess. And there

00:28:30:02 –> 00:28:32:01
Was probably only one in, in the western us.

00:28:33:03 –> 00:28:39:24
It’s not, I guess we’re painting a picture that it’s that bad. It’s not that bad. If you have deep pockets, you can go buy a truck.

00:28:41:13 –> 00:28:43:17
He just get out. He’s gotta have a isn’t

00:28:43:17 –> 00:28:46:20
The deal. It’s, it’s everybody’s fault. But Aaron’s totally with Aaron.

00:28:47:02 –> 00:28:47:24
No, totally with

00:28:48:01 –> 00:28:48:24
EBay doesn’t exist.

00:28:48:25 –> 00:28:49:23
It’s part, it’s part my

00:28:49:28 –> 00:28:52:10
Fault. Exist. Totally get it. All

00:28:52:10 –> 00:28:52:19
Right. Well,

00:28:52:28 –> 00:29:01:02
So if you remember my truck, I keep ’em for a long time. So I do kinda want to get something that I’m gonna have for a while. Unlike you two that trade them in. Like

00:29:01:18 –> 00:29:03:19
Okay, you don’t have to get angry. You don’t

00:29:03:19 –> 00:29:03:24
Have to get

00:29:04:24 –> 00:29:08:13
I to one truck. One truck on my car. I’ve lost track. I, to

00:29:08:13 –> 00:29:23:06
Me Apple, it’s hilarious, is broing. You, you, you look at the Chevy ZR two, Aaron looks into the Chevy ZR two. He realizes that’s the most amazing little truck that’s ever been built. You buy one, you love it. You continue to love it. You continue to own it. Aaron never buys one Next

00:29:23:06 –> 00:29:24:20
Step in line. Next step. I need a new

00:29:24:20 –> 00:29:35:17
Big truck. Need a new big truck. We think about the power wagon. We see the power wagon. I’ve had a few, a couple of them. Aaron says they’re the most amazing big truck ever built. In fact, Aaron thinks he would like to find one for himself.

00:29:35:23 –> 00:29:36:20
So we each bought one.

00:29:36:25 –> 00:29:39:08
We each bought one. And Aaron continues to look for

00:29:39:08 –> 00:29:40:02
One. I still have no,

00:29:40:10 –> 00:29:43:14
Never buys one, have no truck. Now he’s back to a Chevy Diesel,

00:29:44:16 –> 00:29:46:25
Which we’ve never owned in our life. Okay. You or I,

00:29:47:02 –> 00:29:53:28
No, never owned it. And Aaron can’t find one. And Kevin Cole and everybody else who listened to the first podcast

00:29:54:03 –> 00:29:55:02
Has already bought

00:29:55:02 –> 00:29:57:07
One is enjoying it and Prec scouting

00:29:57:26 –> 00:30:07:23
And Prec scouting while I’m doing nothing. Okay. You get, if you guys would run a truck before the tires ran out or an oil change before you got a new one, maybe you’d understand why.

00:30:07:23 –> 00:30:09:20
All the personal attacks, he’s so

00:30:10:00 –> 00:30:14:01
That happened to one truck that I just didn’t fit us. We had sciatic nerve problems.

00:30:14:25 –> 00:30:22:02
They they, they didn’t fit. It didn’t fit. They didn’t fit full grown men. That’s all there is to it. It just didn’t fit right. Anyway,

00:30:22:13 –> 00:30:28:00
But well we just wanted to call and get a report. I didn’t know how close we were. I didn’t, I know it’s a sensitive topic. Well it

00:30:28:00 –> 00:30:28:25
Is a same didn’t,

00:30:29:24 –> 00:30:32:13
I didn’t know all the, where all the hate’s coming from, but we starting,

00:30:32:27 –> 00:30:33:24
There’s no hate.

00:30:34:27 –> 00:30:35:08
You got

00:30:35:08 –> 00:30:39:04
A receiver hitch on that Chevy Malibu to hold the side by side down.

00:30:39:25 –> 00:30:42:08
I guess I can do that. Get a four-wheeler rack on you.

00:30:43:07 –> 00:30:43:14
I mean

00:30:43:17 –> 00:30:45:20
Obviously that wasn’t part of his contingency

00:30:45:20 –> 00:30:50:02
Plan. I guess I’ll just leave the side by side on the mountain and then I can just drive down to it, I guess.

00:30:50:05 –> 00:30:51:05
Leave it chain to a tree.

00:30:52:05 –> 00:30:54:10
What are you gonna to what are you gonna tow the boat with

00:30:55:05 –> 00:30:56:16
The Tahoe wife’s car?

00:30:57:07 –> 00:30:57:29
Is it four wheel drive?

00:30:58:09 –> 00:31:00:16
She’s been, it’s four wheel the Tahoe good

00:31:00:16 –> 00:31:01:23
To go. That’s a good plan. You four

00:31:01:23 –> 00:31:11:05
Drive. So yeah, we always got that. And I can tow the side by side with it and she can take them Malibu. So we’re contingency. But I don’t, I’m trying to buy a truck. Don’t. You’re

00:31:11:05 –> 00:31:12:11
Trying. He’s trying.

00:31:12:25 –> 00:31:17:02
I hunted out of a Ford Taurus for a couple years. So don’t be done.

00:31:17:10 –> 00:31:18:19
It can be done. See it

00:31:18:19 –> 00:31:19:08
Was a great, you’re giving

00:31:19:10 –> 00:31:24:06
Me hope. Oh, you me hope. Right. Rainstorms you slept in. It was fine. Nobody

00:31:24:06 –> 00:31:25:02
Even knew I was hunting.

00:31:26:15 –> 00:31:27:02
You were giving me

00:31:27:02 –> 00:31:28:04
Hope. Giving me hope.

00:31:28:09 –> 00:31:31:02
Were always, you’ve just told everyone to look out for a Chevy Malibu now.

00:31:32:05 –> 00:31:36:20
We were always told they make new trucks every day. Aaron. They make new trucks every day. Just go buy one.

00:31:36:20 –> 00:31:37:19
Yeah, they haven’t for four months.

00:31:39:02 –> 00:31:40:12
It’s like the first time it’s green.

00:31:41:10 –> 00:31:43:05
It is. Different time, different times.

00:31:43:23 –> 00:31:44:01

00:31:44:08 –> 00:32:00:14
Good luck. What now let’s say you did buy a truck. We were gonna talk about some of the things that you put in your truck, you know, shovel, handyman, jack, some of the different things, you know, the inverters. I don’t know. What are some of the things that you put in your truck? I mean, you’re one of those detailed guys.

00:32:00:14 –> 00:32:02:18
Jumper. Those jumper packs have been nice jumper pack. I’ve used them.

00:32:02:22 –> 00:32:06:05
Oh yeah. You gotta have a jumper pack. Yeah. Gotta have six chains. Tow rope.

00:32:07:11 –> 00:32:17:08
Aaron’s big on the, on the winch that he’s got a front and a rear receiver hitch. He just keeps it in the bed of his truck. So you get stuck on the front. Yep. Put it up up there. Yep. Pull it out. Put

00:32:17:08 –> 00:32:18:22
It in the back. Or mostly for other people there.

00:32:18:22 –> 00:32:19:14
Other people, but mostly

00:32:19:16 –> 00:32:21:24
For other people you pull out. But yeah, that’s good.

00:32:22:15 –> 00:32:28:22
Well, on that win, where do you, where do you keep it? Like it’s a short bed truck, you know, put what I mean, keep putting a four

00:32:28:22 –> 00:32:32:16
Wheeler in. You put, when I go out for the weekend, I’ll just put it in the receiver. Hit to the front. Put in front

00:32:32:18 –> 00:32:33:19
When you’re going hunting. Alright.

00:32:33:23 –> 00:32:35:22
No, I put it in the receiver hitch in the front.

00:32:35:23 –> 00:32:36:08
Okay. Yeah.

00:32:36:16 –> 00:32:36:25
All right.

00:32:37:03 –> 00:32:39:28
But it can go front of rear anywhere. Yeah, it’s kind of

00:32:39:28 –> 00:32:41:07
Nice. Kind of nice. Yep.

00:32:43:10 –> 00:32:46:13
Any, you gotta have a firearm. You gotta have a firearm in there. Somewhere

00:32:47:02 –> 00:32:49:07
Of them. Devin, Devin always packs a side on,

00:32:50:02 –> 00:32:54:16
Talked about his engagement pitch. He’s wearing q you packing heat because he’s on one knee

00:32:54:16 –> 00:32:56:06
Saw and he’s packing heat. I saw that.

00:32:56:20 –> 00:32:59:13
Well I think it was to force her to say yes.

00:33:01:21 –> 00:33:03:12
Anyway, little persuasion. Taking

00:33:03:12 –> 00:33:05:29
Control of the situation. Sometimes

00:33:05:29 –> 00:33:07:20
You gotta do what you gotta do with this commands authority.

00:33:08:23 –> 00:33:11:17
That’s right. Starting this relationship off. Right.

00:33:11:25 –> 00:33:28:20
Well, we’ll check back with you. But I I, I can’t promise when it might be December because we’re gonna get busy in the fall. And if you don’t have a truck then there need nothing to report when you buy one. I’d love to hear, love to hear about it. How good a deal you stole it from somebody. It’s deal. You stole it from somebody. No,

00:33:28:20 –> 00:33:30:17
I didn’t. I’m not gonna steal it from anyone. It’s just

00:33:31:17 –> 00:33:35:26
Probably a little unsuspecting grandma out there that’s gonna get taken advantage of here in about two weeks.

00:33:36:02 –> 00:33:40:06
Well, and I want a front bench too. That’s kind of a hard thing to find a front bench. Well,

00:33:40:06 –> 00:33:42:08
It’s got six seat belts. Right? That’s what you’re looking

00:33:42:09 –> 00:33:50:22
For. It is. But that’s every little layer. Every layer though. You add ’em all up and, and you’re he’s looking for unicorn. That’s what he’s looking

00:33:50:22 –> 00:33:51:04
For. There’s not

00:33:51:15 –> 00:33:51:28

00:33:51:28 –> 00:33:53:12
Much. Yeah. A lot leathers

00:33:53:12 –> 00:33:54:10
Out there and you know,

00:33:54:10 –> 00:33:57:22
Every one of ’em are charcoal. But you’re gonna want tan because it’s gonna hide two

00:33:57:22 –> 00:34:02:19
Specs. No, I don’t in it. I don’t care. It can be any color. Interior. I’m, I’m a liar.

00:34:03:02 –> 00:34:03:08

00:34:03:26 –> 00:34:04:05
You would

00:34:04:05 –> 00:34:04:25
Take a red interior.

00:34:06:17 –> 00:34:08:04
They don’t make ’em so I’m pretty safe.

00:34:08:23 –> 00:34:11:18
Yeah, you’re so dumb, Jason. They don’t make those.

00:34:12:17 –> 00:34:15:12
I’ve had red interiors. I hate ’em. Maybe not

00:34:15:12 –> 00:34:15:28
New age. Well

00:34:15:28 –> 00:34:18:14
In 88 they did, but they those for a while.

00:34:19:13 –> 00:34:21:11
Which model and make in 88

00:34:22:24 –> 00:34:27:26
Dad’s old dad had a Z 71. His C 71 had one red. There’s

00:34:27:26 –> 00:34:32:17
Nothing like a red interior pisses you off. Red does it to you.

00:34:33:24 –> 00:34:35:07
It’s either light or dark. Really

00:34:35:07 –> 00:34:37:01
Red has caused many Americans to be angry.

00:34:39:02 –> 00:34:39:19
I dunno if that’s true.

00:34:39:19 –> 00:34:40:28
It does. As they say. Red’s,

00:34:41:00 –> 00:34:41:25
Red’s we’re on

00:34:41:25 –> 00:34:44:10
The, that’s why they stopped making it. Apparently we’re

00:34:44:10 –> 00:34:55:20
On the lookout down here. But in fact, if we see when we’re just gonna put five grand down and, and write your name on an i u and hold it it for me. Yeah. All right. Sounds good. Yeah. Hold it. Just trust us. We’ll do good things. I,

00:34:55:28 –> 00:35:04:22
Well I apologize all for all the listeners out there that have to go through this. Why the hate? Jeez. You know,

00:35:05:08 –> 00:35:05:17

00:35:05:17 –> 00:35:05:25

00:35:05:25 –> 00:35:11:19
Give us a, I would like to collect a little bit of money from him, Adam. ’cause we’re gonna find something and he’s not gonna wanna make good on it.

00:35:13:06 –> 00:35:13:14

00:35:14:19 –> 00:35:14:29
Get a

00:35:14:29 –> 00:35:16:11
Deposit of some sort. He’s gonna say, you

00:35:16:16 –> 00:35:22:08
Knows it’s not gonna have the spot up there above your head that you put your sunglasses in right there. Right. That little, that particular

00:35:22:09 –> 00:35:23:16
Year they reconfigured,

00:35:23:16 –> 00:35:25:28
You’re making interior something that’s not that

00:35:26:00 –> 00:35:36:11
Particular year. They reconfigured the interior. And I don’t have that little pop down sunglass holder. A built in garage door opener. I’ve gotta use a, an external device that’ll open the

00:35:36:11 –> 00:35:41:14
Garage door. No, none of that. Matt. Like, I’m not that picky. You guys have got me pegged as

00:35:42:17 –> 00:35:43:00
And then he

00:35:43:00 –> 00:35:44:17
Something looking for unicorn’s.

00:35:44:17 –> 00:35:49:04
That’s not the case. It’s thaty, but I can’t find one. Okay. In the western US. I cannot find one.

00:35:49:10 –> 00:35:53:16
We could find one. It’ll be a G M C. No, I’d buy it if it was a Chevy. Yeah. Chevy

00:35:53:20 –> 00:35:59:11
Chevy’s look better. Resell on. Tell me about the resell on G M C versus Chevy. What’s the difference?

00:35:59:13 –> 00:36:00:08
It doesn’t matter. Does it?

00:36:00:13 –> 00:36:03:04
It doesn’t matter. They’re both good. And I’d take either one.

00:36:03:14 –> 00:36:04:19
G M C isn’t as good looking.

00:36:06:14 –> 00:36:07:05
Just depends.

00:36:07:15 –> 00:36:10:10
Sierra versus Silverado. I don’t. Depends on the year. Take your pick. Depends

00:36:10:10 –> 00:36:13:08
On the, depends on anyway. Depends on the lock washers they use that year.

00:36:14:03 –> 00:36:15:08
It’s got red interiors.

00:36:16:21 –> 00:36:20:24
All right, we’ll leave you to it. Get back looking. Go to ksl. Okay. Gotta

00:36:20:24 –> 00:36:22:06
Have you looked at KSL today?

00:36:23:04 –> 00:36:24:06
Oh yeah. You ha

00:36:24:06 –> 00:36:29:00
Have you? Yeah. Every day. He’s got alerts on his phone four times a day. But

00:36:29:00 –> 00:36:33:24
I’ve also got people in the industry that are looking. They’re, they’re the one helping me out. So.

00:36:34:07 –> 00:36:38:13
Well, so you guys were, you were looking for a boat in what year? Solve

00:36:38:13 –> 00:36:38:20

00:36:41:03 –> 00:36:41:10

00:36:41:10 –> 00:36:41:13

00:36:41:18 –> 00:36:45:13
A boat? And, and that’s, I’ll pipe up here. See this

00:36:46:00 –> 00:36:46:17
Part of that

00:36:46:17 –> 00:36:55:20
Problem. Part of that problem is we, I’ve driven trucks my whole life. You know what you’re after in a truck? Boats are hard. You don’t know what you’re And do you,

00:36:56:04 –> 00:36:56:11

00:36:56:13 –> 00:37:04:25
You never jumped into the boat world, you’re, you’re in for education. You don’t look for Yeah. Okay. Yeah. It’s endless. Endless models makes

00:37:05:05 –> 00:37:05:24
Floor plans.

00:37:06:07 –> 00:37:10:24
It does years. It and they don’t. Anyway. They’re endless. Okay.

00:37:10:27 –> 00:37:12:11
Engine drive. Combos.

00:37:12:17 –> 00:37:15:12
Yeah. Tranny. Everything’s different. Field

Tank capacities,

00:37:17:24 –> 00:37:19:20
Deck boats, regular boats. Ski boats.

00:37:19:25 –> 00:37:22:04
Wake boats. Glad that’s over with after. Yeah. That

00:37:22:04 –> 00:37:22:23
Chapter was

00:37:22:23 –> 00:37:22:26

00:37:23:02 –> 00:37:24:19
Yeah. 28 months later. You guys,

00:37:24:27 –> 00:37:26:12
It wasn’t that long, but it was a while.

00:37:27:05 –> 00:37:29:06
Two years. It was too easy.

00:37:29:14 –> 00:37:31:16
How long ago did we buy boats, John? Two years.

00:37:31:28 –> 00:37:32:22
Two and a half. Two and a half.

00:37:33:28 –> 00:37:38:26
I wasn’t looking right then. Hard. I I was

00:37:38:26 –> 00:37:41:18
Say, I would say three months on the boat. Three months.

00:37:42:13 –> 00:37:42:28
Well we

00:37:42:28 –> 00:37:51:17
Looked last year for three months hard. And then once you get to midsummer, you better give up. ’cause everybody’s got their boat mid-summer, they’re using it and then they’re gonna get rid of it in the fall. Fall.

00:37:51:17 –> 00:37:52:29
All you’re gonna do is winterize it. That’s

00:37:52:29 –> 00:37:53:20
Right after you stop

00:37:53:20 –> 00:37:54:24
Looking for two months,

00:37:54:26 –> 00:37:58:11
Then the clock starts over. Yeah. That’s what these guys looked for

00:37:58:15 –> 00:38:00:08
Years. Oh yeah. Two and a half years.

00:38:01:21 –> 00:38:02:20

00:38:02:29 –> 00:38:03:16
Three months.

00:38:03:17 –> 00:38:06:00
Congratulations. What grandma did you take that one from?

00:38:06:12 –> 00:38:07:04
It’s a good family.

00:38:07:26 –> 00:38:11:14
It’s a good family. Good family boat. Good, good situation. Yep.

00:38:11:14 –> 00:38:19:04
Perfect. Kids all hate us from that family. The parents didn’t wanted to sell it. The kids were mad at the parents for selling it. Oh yeah, they were in trouble. Yeah.

00:38:19:29 –> 00:38:22:06
Yeah. They thought they were cleaning the boat out to go boat there.

00:38:23:06 –> 00:38:28:00
They had the clits cleaned it out and then they found out they were so, it, they got so mad at the parents.

00:38:28:00 –> 00:38:29:29
They’re over there. Wax on, wax off

00:38:30:13 –> 00:38:33:05
All, all the Miyagi moves. They were doing ’em all day

00:38:33:05 –> 00:38:33:19
After day.

00:38:34:16 –> 00:38:40:10
And then they just said, Hey, hey, we put on Cael and sold it in two hours. There’s no backing out.

00:38:40:26 –> 00:38:44:04
Yeah. We weren’t, we weren’t, we didn’t exchange names. No.

00:38:44:08 –> 00:38:44:17

00:39:11:29 –> 00:39:12:10
They’re what?

00:39:12:19 –> 00:39:13:24
They’re a little high priced.

00:39:13:28 –> 00:39:14:24
Buy 500 bucks.

00:39:15:07 –> 00:39:21:08
No. Probably five to 10 grand. Probably. Yeah. They, they’ve got you by the throat. Know.

00:39:21:26 –> 00:39:26:10
Then the new ones, I would really like a new one. Those new 2020s are awesome. If, you know,

00:39:26:10 –> 00:39:28:28
The 2020 ones are gonna be amazing too. Well, if

00:39:28:28 –> 00:39:31:02
You had 2022. 2020

00:39:31:17 –> 00:39:32:00

00:39:32:00 –> 00:39:47:14
2020. Right now they, it’ll come as a 2021 because 20 there, mark my words. 2020, you’re gonna have a collector’s item. ’cause a they didn’t make that many. And if they’re making ’em right now, you’re getting a 2021 on the order. So aren’t 2020 is gonna be hard. Aren’t

00:39:47:14 –> 00:39:52:28
They gonna do that to Trail Boss in a threequarter ton in about 2022? Something like that? Isn’t that the rumor?

00:39:53:07 –> 00:39:54:28
Probably five. I haven’t heard that Well,

00:39:55:03 –> 00:39:57:26
But something we talked about coming in 2020.

00:39:57:28 –> 00:39:59:28
I’m not gonna wait for that. That’s if you’re getting to that.

00:40:00:15 –> 00:40:01:19
Well, I, I just, I don’t

00:40:01:21 –> 00:40:04:10
You say 18 or 19, but you would take a Covid 2020.

00:40:05:10 –> 00:40:05:17

00:40:05:24 –> 00:40:08:29
Covid. The, I would take the Covid 2020. But they’re,

00:40:09:02 –> 00:40:15:29
I mean, you know, you got people that are infected with the virus working on the truck. You probably got a lot of lemons in 2020, I would think. Huh?

00:40:16:05 –> 00:40:17:10
I would think so. I would take, there’s

00:40:17:10 –> 00:40:25:26
A lot of turnover in employees because you gotta work your 40 and you gotta get out for two weeks. And then somebody in retrain, non non-continuing on this truck,

00:40:26:10 –> 00:40:26:20
Retrain them.

00:40:27:06 –> 00:40:30:14
Gotta be a lot of recalls. That’s the truck. A lot of recalls on 2020s. That’s, that’s

00:40:30:14 –> 00:40:32:25
The truck I wanna collect away. That’s the truck I wanna

00:40:32:25 –> 00:40:36:13
Collect. Isn’t there some draws coming out or something else that you talked about?

00:40:36:25 –> 00:40:40:25
No, we’ve already talked about that. The large ladies been pipe piping up.

00:40:42:11 –> 00:40:44:24
Everybody’s got their plan. Aaron, you got a plan?

00:40:45:07 –> 00:40:49:28
No, he’s in, he is going up to Alaska, aren’t you? You and some buddies. Car caribou. Moose. Yeah, we,

00:40:50:07 –> 00:40:54:11
Yep, we got a trip plan. We’ve been in the Macon for about four years, so we’re hoping that even goes

00:40:54:11 –> 00:40:56:00
Through. Don’t eat a truck. Four years.

00:40:57:24 –> 00:40:59:12
Four years. I, I don’t know what to

00:40:59:12 –> 00:41:06:26
Say. We should talk about his gear list. One of these days. Yeah, it’d be interesting. Really? 99% deep, not 98.

00:41:08:01 –> 00:41:08:14
Oh my

00:41:09:08 –> 00:41:09:14

00:41:09:27 –> 00:41:12:12
You’re really painting a bad picture of who I’m

00:41:13:27 –> 00:41:15:02
Well. So that’s going up there.

00:41:15:02 –> 00:41:16:24
Tr you got some work to do on this one, buddy?

00:41:17:07 –> 00:41:32:11
Oh, I’m aware. I would say you’re methodical. Yeah, that’s, that’s a good word. And I, and I like we’ve talked about, that’s a positive quality because, you know, when we want to buy tires, we’ve talked about it all before, we just, we call Aaron find out what do the, he’d done the homework on it.

00:41:33:11 –> 00:41:41:00
Well, methodical is good. I I just, I’m gonna keep it for a while. So you just don’t run out and buy one and ah, that’s six months. Let’s buy another one. Yeah,

00:41:41:07 –> 00:41:42:14
It’s a good point. That happened

00:41:42:14 –> 00:41:52:11
Once. And, and in Carter’s defense, he’s, he’s buying used cars, used trucks for five to 10,000 to use hard for a truck Camry season and flip and then get rid of it. And

00:41:52:11 –> 00:41:53:00
That’s different. Yeah.

00:41:53:01 –> 00:41:58:13
Yeah. It’s not like he’s, you, you’re giving him us kind of a both bad rap there. I did it once on a new

00:41:58:15 –> 00:42:00:23
Truck. I put two, I put 220 miles

00:42:01:16 –> 00:42:03:07
On that last truck. Two 20,000. Yeah.

00:42:03:07 –> 00:42:06:29
Yeah. And it was at two 60. It had, it had, yeah. 40 on when I got it.

00:42:07:15 –> 00:42:12:05
Good. Well, and I think that’s great. But if you go two or three years of your life without a vehicle,

00:42:12:29 –> 00:42:13:08
You know,

00:42:13:17 –> 00:42:14:00
Two or three

00:42:14:00 –> 00:42:15:07
Months, two three

00:42:15:07 –> 00:42:17:28
Months, what’s your enjoyment and life worth there?

00:42:18:29 –> 00:42:20:06
Two or three months. It

00:42:20:06 –> 00:42:24:01
Might even cost you a deer or two. I just don’t, I just can’t even wrap my head around. It

00:42:24:04 –> 00:42:42:22
Can only do so much in a Chevy Malibu. That’s all we’re saying. That’s it. Or a Ford Taurus, Chris or whatever that was. I killed my biggest, biggest dare in my life with in the Ford pit. Go in the trunk front seat. There you go. I wasn’t putting that thing in the trunk. He’s gonna ride shotgun

00:42:42:27 –> 00:42:43:08
In the

00:42:43:18 –> 00:42:45:12
Front seat of a Taurus. Put a little truck.

00:42:45:13 –> 00:42:49:28
Ford Taurus. I mean, did it make it home without a stop to the service station or to the

00:42:51:12 –> 00:42:55:22
Mechanic shop? We Oh yeah. Yeah. It ran good. Did it ran like a champ? It did. Oh yeah.

00:42:55:29 –> 00:42:58:12
Seems like you ran it off through the sagebrush out there in

00:42:58:22 –> 00:42:59:29
I did. I did.

00:43:00:14 –> 00:43:02:13
You were like, yeah, it was kinda wild. I fell asleep.

00:43:02:13 –> 00:43:03:16
It was real. It was real wild.

00:43:04:04 –> 00:43:06:16
I think that was back when you were before Monster and texting

00:43:06:27 –> 00:43:07:24
Dhar. That

00:43:08:26 –> 00:43:09:24
It was before Monster.

00:43:10:11 –> 00:43:11:08
Yes, it was before Monster.

00:43:11:20 –> 00:43:13:22
Yeah. Monsters saved our lives. Well,

00:43:14:13 –> 00:43:16:08
Sounds like you guys are about to wrap it up.

00:43:16:28 –> 00:43:18:14
Let’s see you, see you later.

00:43:18:22 –> 00:43:26:24
So when I, no closing comment. Hey, Epic’s got your truck cams and optics, but don’t No trucks.

00:43:27:11 –> 00:43:30:26
No. We’ll, I’m gonna lend you a truck. I’m gonna lend you a truck, Aaron. Yeah,

00:43:31:10 –> 00:43:32:08
We know. I just want

00:43:32:08 –> 00:43:34:18
It back in, in the same or better conditions.

00:43:34:21 –> 00:43:38:05
Oh, it’ll be better. It’ll be better. Might be. Or it’ll be better. Lend them one of your heart, which,

00:43:38:19 –> 00:43:41:01
Oh, I’ve got a Ford F one 52,000. Not

00:43:41:01 –> 00:43:41:11
That one.

00:43:43:20 –> 00:43:47:16
It’s a tough, I know that. It’s a tough truck, Aaron. It’ll not leave you

00:43:47:22 –> 00:43:49:24
The day in it yesterday. It’s, it’s a good truck.

00:43:49:29 –> 00:43:50:22
We only drifted a couple.

00:43:50:22 –> 00:43:53:05
Got some new skins on it and it saved our lives.

00:43:53:18 –> 00:43:59:25
Tire company hooked me up. It’s pretty awesome. All right guy, have a great day. Good luck with K Ss l. Let us know how you search goes. All right,

00:44:00:14 –> 00:44:01:16
Sounds good guys.

00:44:01:22 –> 00:44:02:22
You in September? Alright.

00:44:03:18 –> 00:44:04:11
Okay. Alright.

00:44:04:26 –> 00:44:05:02

00:44:06:11 –> 00:44:11:23
Come on. You like why the hate? You know we just called them mock you for 45 minutes.

00:44:12:01 –> 00:44:12:18
Yeah, that’s

00:44:12:18 –> 00:44:17:10
A good point. You know what we should do? We should post that exact truck on K S L and see how long it takes him to call us.

00:44:17:28 –> 00:44:19:08
Oh dumb coach.

00:44:19:27 –> 00:44:21:01
We should do that.

00:44:21:15 –> 00:44:22:08
Why? Hey,

00:44:22:19 –> 00:44:35:12
Go down the picture. Go just find one in a shopping at Walmart parking lot. Take a couple pictures. Don’t show anything identifiable. No license plate. And just say, Hey Covid, hit us hard. We got this thing 42 5

00:44:36:13 –> 00:44:41:02
And we can use 32 5. We can use a number that he doesn’t have. We’ll plug it in

00:44:42:02 –> 00:44:46:05
And we’ll see if he even calls and if he doesn’t call we’re gonna, he we’ll know. He saw it. We, we know that.

00:44:46:05 –> 00:44:46:07

00:44:46:23 –> 00:44:48:23
Call him and say, why did you not call on that?

00:44:48:27 –> 00:44:55:26
And we could even say light interior. Oh yeah. Light use non-smoker. Yeah. Who’s gonna field through all

00:44:55:26 –> 00:44:57:06
The calls and tell he calls

00:44:57:09 –> 00:44:57:16

00:44:59:12 –> 00:45:00:02
Text only.

00:45:01:02 –> 00:45:02:14
It’s a lot of work, but it’d be worth it.

00:45:03:04 –> 00:45:07:06
I wanna sell this to somebody when within Utah only 4, 3, 5 numbers only

00:45:08:09 –> 00:45:09:22
Some funny stuff. Well

00:45:10:00 –> 00:45:11:11
What else Chris? So

00:45:11:18 –> 00:45:17:28
What do you guys, Chris, what’d you put in the Ford Taurus when you’re out hunting thinking you might get stuck, what would you, what are some of the things that you’d put in the car?

00:45:18:19 –> 00:45:20:11
Well, kitty litter in the trunk.

00:45:20:11 –> 00:45:20:25
Wait, I

00:45:20:25 –> 00:45:21:04
Could answer

00:45:21:04 –> 00:45:22:23
This. I’ve changed it up a lot since then.

00:45:24:02 –> 00:45:24:20
You had a

00:45:24:23 –> 00:45:26:00
Wire, what

00:45:26:03 –> 00:45:30:13
In the trunk to open to Jimmy the locks. ’cause you locked the keys in

00:45:30:13 –> 00:45:34:19
It so many times you could. So he went and got his own Slim, slim gym. That slim gym

00:45:34:23 –> 00:45:35:06
Was, I,

00:45:35:07 –> 00:45:39:12
I think I actually did that more when I had the Toyota. ’cause I put it in the bed. But I had a

00:45:39:22 –> 00:45:42:07
Don’t put a spare key in the bed. I’m gonna put a slim gym in the bed. Why

00:45:42:07 –> 00:45:42:16

00:45:42:16 –> 00:45:43:24
You have that in your truck right now?

00:45:44:04 –> 00:45:48:12
Put the front of my truck. A wire? Yeah, just a wire in case they have to pop the door.

00:45:49:00 –> 00:45:50:14
What about a spare key? Have you ever thought of that?

00:45:50:24 –> 00:45:53:20
It’s eight feet long and has a hook on it. It’s not just a wire.

00:45:54:00 –> 00:45:56:19
Here guys. They make spare key holders with mag

00:45:57:05 –> 00:45:58:08
In their people

00:45:58:14 –> 00:46:01:01
Find the keys. People know key. You’ll never find

00:46:01:01 –> 00:46:01:29
It. They don’t

00:46:01:29 –> 00:46:02:20
Ever for wires.

00:46:02:23 –> 00:46:06:17
They look at a slim jam. A you gotta know how to use it. B, you gotta know what it is. Yeah,

00:46:06:25 –> 00:46:09:05
It just looks like a big wire. And they’re like, I don’t know what that

00:46:09:05 –> 00:46:16:10
Is. Like a switch used to get spanked with. They ain’t breaking in spanking of we. If there was more spankings nowadays there’d be less looting. Let’s be honest. Tell ’em what, tell us we’re wrong.

00:46:17:02 –> 00:46:18:16
So let’s finish about the

00:46:18:16 –> 00:46:18:22

00:46:18:27 –> 00:46:23:11
In the Taurus. You said it’s changed over the years. Well, from kitty litter to what?

00:46:23:16 –> 00:46:28:07
No, I was saying it got a lot better. It got a lot better when I got the, the trucks when I started.

00:46:28:14 –> 00:46:29:01
Oh, I can imagine.

00:46:29:05 –> 00:46:33:25
I’ve been through three trucks since then. Yeah. But yeah. Oh, I always,

00:46:33:29 –> 00:46:34:14
What does better

00:46:34:14 –> 00:46:38:12
Mean? I always said I could just more, because I don’t know, more

00:46:38:12 –> 00:46:39:07
Cans of beans cream.

00:46:39:16 –> 00:46:46:12
You got the whole back seat and it just feels like that’s just a cargo in a car. Those are seats. People gotta sit there. But in a truck, it’s kind of like

00:46:46:19 –> 00:46:47:10
You got saddles,

00:46:47:11 –> 00:46:49:01
You’ll find something back there. That

00:46:49:15 –> 00:46:51:10
Bridles. Yeah. What, what, what bros

00:46:51:16 –> 00:46:55:20
You could live on for a week? Oh, I used to res kicking around. I mean, who knows

00:46:55:20 –> 00:46:57:26
I used to say I could live outta my truck for two weeks. Yeah.

00:46:58:22 –> 00:47:01:12
Res old ketchup packets on the floor somewhere.

00:47:01:12 –> 00:47:04:19
Yeah. What are those? Uncrustables? I had some of those in there for a while. Dumb

00:47:04:19 –> 00:47:08:25
Mold. Chris, according to Wyatt, they gotta be frozen or refrigerated.

00:47:08:26 –> 00:47:11:02
He’s a, a sewer of Uncrustables. My

00:47:11:02 –> 00:47:20:11
Boy too. Yeah. You keep throw it in the freezer. My my boy thinks you can’t put ’em out of the freezer. And I’m like, come on. I mean, it says it on the box. I know, but come on. Always

00:47:20:11 –> 00:47:21:05
Keep frozen. Yeah.

00:47:21:05 –> 00:47:28:13
Yeah. And I will say at the office here, I put ’em in the fridge and then back in the freezer after what told me they’re not as good. They weren’t the same. Sables

00:47:28:13 –> 00:47:30:22
Were crusty. This comes from guy that can taste the difference in water.

00:47:31:13 –> 00:47:32:18
Yeah. That’s

00:47:33:11 –> 00:47:36:13
Jana. Jana says arrowhead’s the best by far. She doesn’t what?

00:47:36:13 –> 00:47:38:25
Oh yeah. Somebody else said that. I thought too.

00:47:39:02 –> 00:47:39:11

00:47:39:11 –> 00:47:40:11
Was, I said it too.

00:47:41:16 –> 00:47:42:04
All right guys,

00:47:42:08 –> 00:47:45:10
We gotta talk about some form of hunting today. Well,

00:47:45:20 –> 00:47:46:05

00:47:46:29 –> 00:47:49:05
I mean, no, what do

00:47:49:05 –> 00:47:51:14
You, what are you gonna do to augment your hunting schedule?

00:47:52:14 –> 00:48:07:05
That’s a great question. That’s a great question. There’s not many options I’d sold. I’m, I’m in, I’m, I’d, I’m for a few, I’m in for some dream tags in Nevada, some super tags in Wyoming. I got an email, that’s what my, the rest of my year at, contingent upon statewide raffle tags.

00:48:07:09 –> 00:48:12:08
You know what’s getting down to the wire? Yes. When Bronson says, how many more raffle tag drawings are there,

00:48:13:28 –> 00:48:14:11
It was like,

00:48:14:23 –> 00:48:15:28
Hey, I don’t know.

00:48:16:10 –> 00:48:29:28
I, I don’t play a lot of money, but you gotta have a name in the hat. We say it, we preach it. But that is where I’m sitting and what I’ve, what I’ve got’s what I’ve got started off pretty good. Drew a couple of tags way back in February and it’s been a dry spell. Well, and

00:48:29:28 –> 00:48:36:04
It has been dry the last few months. It’s been dry outside dry, which has kind of matched what you’re drawing.

00:48:36:04 –> 00:48:38:17
Unlike you Carter, you’ve got a six pack of deer tags,

00:48:39:10 –> 00:48:44:05
Six deer tags, two antelope tags, and an elk tag. That’s not even including my kids. I’m done tapped

00:48:45:10 –> 00:48:50:16
Out. I I mean you’re gonna have venison bottles stacked at your house. I got,

00:48:50:17 –> 00:49:20:06
I got kind of a random side note on this. It has to do with hunting, but, so I compared photos from this year and last year at the same time where, and the deer are way worse this year. And, and as far as development, they look like they’re two weeks behind. And I don’t know if anybody else is seeing that on your trail cameras, is that what you’re saying? Yeah. They, they, they, last year I had deer that were splitting four points. And this year, what looks like another mature deer isn’t quite there yet. And it’s just, I’m just wondering if this dry, I

00:49:20:12 –> 00:49:22:23
Don’t know. Is you gonna have variation?

00:49:22:23 –> 00:49:23:22
Anybody else seeing that or?

00:49:24:22 –> 00:49:27:20
I haven’t been grinding deer yet. I

00:49:27:24 –> 00:49:33:28
Have not found a buck on one of my hats. I found a stag and a bunch of dough. Okay,

00:49:34:01 –> 00:49:34:23
Okay. Well

00:49:34:23 –> 00:49:36:13
Things are looking rough in a couple places.

00:49:36:27 –> 00:49:42:13
Could be just the desert too. Where I was, there was bucks with kickers, everything. Four points. Whoa. Where? Where?

00:49:42:21 –> 00:49:43:04

00:49:43:04 –> 00:49:44:20
Me. Up in the meadow. Oh,

00:49:45:07 –> 00:49:45:16

00:49:45:16 –> 00:49:45:22

00:49:45:22 –> 00:49:48:08
Meadow. Yeah. I was at 9,000 feet. Yeah. Yeah.

00:49:48:16 –> 00:49:49:11
I mean there’s gonna be some difference.

00:49:49:11 –> 00:49:49:19
It’s just a

00:49:49:19 –> 00:49:51:17
Little different, but kickers prove it. Where, where are they

00:49:51:17 –> 00:49:52:13
Kickers? Yeah.

00:49:53:04 –> 00:49:54:05
I have, I have video’s

00:49:54:05 –> 00:49:55:08
Decide coordinates.

00:49:55:18 –> 00:49:56:16
I can’t, everybody

00:49:56:16 –> 00:49:58:29
Expects me to be totally transparent. Wyatt does. It’s like a,

00:49:59:03 –> 00:49:59:12
And then

00:49:59:12 –> 00:50:00:24
Wyatt, Devin, when you talk to them,

00:50:03:25 –> 00:50:11:06
This is the family property, you know where we’re talking. But I mean, he doesn’t even hunt it every year. If you have a special deer once in while you maybe get a tag. I

00:50:11:06 –> 00:50:13:04
Don’t think I could hunt. I couldn’t hunt deer anyway, so it totally

00:50:13:04 –> 00:50:16:19
Makes sense. Family property can’t hunt there. Totally get it.

00:50:17:08 –> 00:50:19:11
Well, they lease it. He’s not the one calling the shots.

00:50:19:11 –> 00:50:20:01
Oh, lease it out.

00:50:20:10 –> 00:50:23:25
I could hunt it uncles. Yeah, I could hunt it, but I like, I like having auctions.

00:50:24:06 –> 00:50:25:02
Okay, alright.

00:50:25:04 –> 00:50:25:19
We’ll see.

00:50:26:08 –> 00:50:28:22
Depends on his general seasoned deer in Utah. It’s better.

00:50:28:22 –> 00:50:30:06
Why have you seen these bucks with cheaters?

00:50:30:13 –> 00:50:32:00
I’ve not seen any bucks with cheaters. Have have you

00:50:32:00 –> 00:50:33:11
Even heard cheaters? Two bucks with cheaters?

00:50:33:19 –> 00:50:39:06
I’d, I’d heard he saw some nice deer. I don’t remember. I think he did mention cheaters. Did he? Yeah. Did he?

00:50:39:18 –> 00:50:41:07
It’s not that big of a deer. I’m telling Wyatt,

00:50:41:26 –> 00:50:42:22
Where do you sitting?

00:50:43:15 –> 00:50:48:18
Me? I’m sitting on a couple trips out. Nothing. No, I nothing to report. I mean, you,

00:50:48:18 –> 00:50:52:05
You and you guys are going to Alaska too. Oh yeah. And then you got a general deer tag. It’s,

00:50:52:08 –> 00:50:57:20
Yeah. Pretty, pretty bleak season. I probably end up taking some clients or something to fill the,

00:50:57:20 –> 00:50:58:13
Getting married, fill

00:50:58:13 –> 00:51:01:24
The fall in. Yeah, get married. That, that kinda stuff. John,

00:51:01:24 –> 00:51:14:24
You’ve done pretty good. Done pretty good. And draws you have, you’ve accumulated some stuff. You and kids and wife. Wife Mexico oil and a bonus draw. Chris, remind me, I got a few. I got you got a couple. Colorado deer, Utah deer.

00:51:14:29 –> 00:51:17:14
Yeah, that’s pretty much it though. Colorado. A couple. Colorado Deer.

00:51:17:24 –> 00:51:19:00
A couple. You can have more than one.

00:51:19:16 –> 00:51:21:07
I don’t know. You said couple Colorado deer.

00:51:21:22 –> 00:51:24:23
I just meant a couple, a couple tags. Colorado Deer, Utah Deer. Oh,

00:51:24:23 –> 00:51:29:06
I also do the Kansas. I, I don’t know a hundred percent what I’m gonna do on that. Really?

00:51:29:10 –> 00:51:30:13
I didn’t know you applied. Yeah.

00:51:30:17 –> 00:51:33:02
Yeah. I applied it for the muzzle loader tag in Kansas.

00:51:33:22 –> 00:51:35:11
September early. But I

00:51:35:11 –> 00:51:38:11
Don’t know if that’s gonna happen. See if that fits. Might end up going in

00:51:38:27 –> 00:51:40:20
Later, later. Rifle muzzle. Get

00:51:40:20 –> 00:51:41:11
The mul deer stab

00:51:41:11 –> 00:51:44:22
With it. No, no. Nope. I wanna kill a good white tail.

00:51:45:06 –> 00:52:33:23
Well, let’s, let’s give a shout out to a couple sponsors real fast before we wind up. Chris, I think you have a bit. You got an announcement if coming into the 4th of July weekend.

So give ’em a call if you’re looking for something later this year. And occasionally we are getting to the mid-summer. Sometimes it’s tough to say, Hey, I want a gun for this fall because of the turnaround time. Occasionally some people order guns and comes time to pick it up and buy it. They’re backing out. They do that every year. We get calls from some of these custom gun manufacturers that we’ve dealt with. And so keep that in mind. Maybe somebody’s got a, got a gun that’s new and ready to be bought and they’re not paying for it and they’re ready to move on down the road. Get rid of it.

00:53:01:19 –> 00:54:13:18
So I like it. Let’s throw a little shout out to stealth cam. You know, we’ve been advertising about the Fusion. We got ’em. They’re pretty incredible. Guys are buying ’em like crazy.

It’s gonna close on the fifth and we will draw shortly thereafter.
