You know, we take Pride. Bronson in, in picking the best of the best. I mean, these are hunts we’d want ourselves. Yeah, we’ve said it over and over, but it’s true.

Well, there is this year, there’s, who knows, there might still be runoff in water.

00:13:42:05 –> 00:15:06:04
It’s an incredible year to have a tag out there. You know, it’s, it’s a state that’s very susceptible to moisture and when they get it, they have big deer. So anyway, that’s, yeah, and they’re getting some moisture now. Oh, it’s pretty incredible. Yeah, it’s, yeah. Nice, nice. Good. As we’ve seen in a long time, so. Well that’s awesome.

You just heard it outta your lips. Day and time. Day and time. I would say anytime I’m, anytime they pinging my phone in Nevada, it’s probably driving. That’s pretty easy to do. They pinging your phone.

00:37:11:16 –> 00:38:15:02
They look at your phone records. I don’t think pinging your, I know that you’re on pavement that much in Nevada either. That’s a good point, John. I love John. You know what I like about John? He always makes you feel better about doing bad stuff. Is the law that if you’re on a two track’s, I don’t know the law. I don’t know. I know it’s talking on a phone’s. Just say if you don’t, if parked the laundromat and Ely and went up, went like that to hear to voicemail, you’re, you could get a ticket. Trust me. Really? If you’re parked, did you get one? Yes. He, first thing he said was, you hunt now. ’cause I was Where out? You a guy? I’m like, yeah. Alright. Gimme your license. Registration I’d to go to the courthouse. Pay a bill. True story. Were you idling or driving? Or you parked? I was slowly entering. Slowly entering a parking stall in the laundromat. Archibald has the most crazy things happen to him. Archibald about an hour and three minutes ago. What happened to you? Well, I was talking to guys and I mean this guy, this guy, he’s unbelievable. Got a little snacky bit into a Kit Kat and it didn’t taste normal and had no wafer in it. Pure chocolate like a Hershey’s bar. I’m like, he’s lying. Nobody. Nobody shows us, nobody me. Oh, a hundred percent chocolate.

00:38:15:10 –> 00:39:25:13
I broke off the other piece and broke it in half and yeah, so I went in and ate the rest of the bag, trying to find another one. See I’ve ne these guys all ran in there and ate ’em all and they were all wafers. Have you, how many Kit Kats have you had in your whole life? And never have had one without a wafer. I told him that’s an Oman been worse. Oman. He knows it’s in those things. Arizona, draw something that’s an Oman. That’s one. I hope so. I hope Willy won. ’cause Willy Wonka have given you a million bucks for that golden ticket. So anyway, I tried to tease him, told him I watched the Super Bowl commercial and said if any, you know, it was a pure, solid Kit Kat chocolates were a million bucks and he didn’t buy it. No. So should we try somebody back? Yeah. Yeah. Who pick? There’s only the two. Go to the Utah guy. Which one? Yeah, him. Is that the bonus? The Nevada Elk bonus and then, and then this guy’s in Wyoming. Yeah. I mean, they want to talk to us. Well, I think they do, but I’m always a positive thinker. Who’s doing this one? Devon. Devon the, which one is it? The bonus bonus, Jim? Yeah. We need to get the ball rolling on this one. If we try two times, we could give it away to the next guy.

Just like when we take pictures with the Biden hat, we’re just teasing. Do we have to clarify that? We kind of did. Yeah, but we lost some followers. What happened with that? He said we lost Gen Z lost followers because he’s gotta put on his headset. It’s making a, I love it when he gets Can’t fire back and he, you know, he, we can just kind of have him, I’m beginning to think he did that on purpose at the beginning of this thing. Alright, so tell us about how we lost some followers. Well, Josh decided, prove it. Prove it. Well, Josh, an unnamed epic employee that also has access to the Instagram, posted a picture with a beaver in a Biden hat. And that was the first day. We have lost followers in like two months and it would kinda of make me proud. You know, at least people are standing up for something, but they’re not reading. Like, we’re just joking. And if you’re that big of a snowflake, maybe we don’t need you. Anyway. Josh, geez, I second that. Josh totally with you. Hey, Janet is in the room.

So just an incredible opportunity up there. It’s a six day fully guided hunt. And then you get to choose archery, muzzle, or rifle. It’d be, it’d be the rifle. Okay. Well, what we’ll do is we’ll send you an email tomorrow, put you in touch with Hoby, the owner of Deadline Outfitters. But we’re gonna pay for all that. We’ll get you a landowner voucher when the time comes. You can redeem that with the state for the actual permit, but you and him can make your plans for the dates you’re gonna go hunt.

00:43:45:21 –> 00:44:58:20

Yeah, I do. I do. Well, it’s for some background, this is a $22,000 hunt. Yeah. This’s just, oh my word. Yeah. This is, no, this is no joke. Great hunt. Great chance to kill a big bull. We’ve had many members draw this over the last what, few years. Yep. They’ve killed some great bulls. So you got a good one in store and good timing. You probably haven’t had to apply for a lot of your hunts up there yet in your home state as a resident, so you can plan around this knowing you’re going to Nevada. So Yeah, fantastic. I, I, I, I can’t, I still can’t believe it, but Fantastic. That’s, thank you. I’m starting. Thank you so much. I’m starting to hear the smile. I like you lot. I like it.
