Not much to the back story for now. For years Iíve bought a handful of tickets for the sheep and goat raffles for RMBS. Obviously havenít ever won anything. A month or two ago I tried to log in to make my annual donation and a firewall at work wouldnít let me go to the site. So I pulled it up on my phone and ended up getting distracted and didnít complete the purchase. Luckily I left that screen open. Fast forward to this past Wednesday evening. I was looking for something on my phone and ran across that open tab. Looked at it and realized that it was the last day to buy raffle tickets online. So I bought six tickets for the sheep raffle and two for the goat raffle just before the cutoff.

Last night my wife are at the house watching a movie. Iím not that into the chick flick she has on so Iím surfing on my phone. Right at 10:00 my phone lights up with a call from a number I donít know in Colorado. I froze. Only words out of my mouth before I could open it were ďNO FREAKING WAY.Ē I answered.

The guy asked if I was me. Yes. Asked if I knew what the RMBS was doing tonight in Colorado. Yes, and Iím pretty sure that Iím glad that Iím getting a call from you. Lots of laughter and cheers in the background. Asked if I bought a raffle ticket for the statewide antelope tag. No sir. Well good, you didnít win that. Did you buy any tickets for the mountain goat tag? Yes sir I did. Well you didnít win that either.

At that point Iím about to have a flipping heart attack because that means that I won the sheep tag. Sure enough, he tells me just that. I talk to them for a few more minutes and hang up.

My wife is sitting there staring at me only hearing one end of the conversation. Sheís thoroughly confused as to why Iím answering and unknown number at 10:00 on Saturday night. So I tell her.

ďThatís nice babe. Can we turn the movie back on.Ē No lie. That was the response.

So I proceeded to explain that I had just won a raffle for a tag that I would never get otherwise. She still didnít REALLY get it.

For those of you who arenít familiar with the RMBS raffle tag you may be wondering what it is. I basically won a governors tag. I won the same tag that someone paid $180,000 for a couple of months ago at the Sheep Show auction. It basically allows me to hunt any sheep unit from August 1-December 31.

So to answer a couple of other questions that I know will come up. Yes, I will hire an outfitter. No, I havenít decided who that will be. And maybe, I might use my bow but Iím not going to hesitate to use a rifle either. I just want to kill a slammer ram.

Thatís it for now. Iíll update as I know more.

And yeah, I didnít really sleep well at all last night.
