Postby wawhitey » 01 22, 2021 •  [Post 1]

Well im not really a lotto buying guy normally, but with the billion dollar jackpot i figured what the hell, why not? Dont think i won. I was figuring id maybe buy this https://www.landwatch.com/platte-county ... /338912004 joint if i did, and have a wapititalk elk hunt on the twin pines ranch. Oh well, back to the wage slave game. Maybe next time.....

You do realize that statistically I had as good of a chance of winning as you had, and I did not buy a ticket.

There are so many cool places in the US.
A ranch emwoumd be on my list,
But I would pay too much for high end private hunts or be a bad guy and pay tok much for private leases

A friend started a school with his money. I would likely do something similar in outdoor education

I bought a ticket! First time in years. But I didn't win, just want to make that clear.

A Wapititalk hunt would be cool on a private ranch. Think of the fun we could have (at Swede's expense!).

Years ago a kid came up to my desk and asked if it was alright with me if he took the next day off from work. I managed the timber department and he worked for Fire. I looked up at him, like I was considering his request. Then I said, "Sure; I can manage without you for a day." I never saw the kid again. Did he get into trouble, or did he realize his mistake? I have no idea.
It is the same here with you characters going on a private ranch hunt. I do not know how you can convince anyone I will pay, but I am sure I can manage without you for a day, or a month. Enjoy. :lol:

If your paying You can tag along,.. ( Im talking private land not high fence)

I just want someone else to set everything up and just fore a few days si on a trail, glass from the top, set out the decoys, drive in, gut , process the game,.. Or just 1/2 the effort
