I am getting a little stressed. What happens if I draw both the goat and the sheep tag? Not sure if I can take that much vacation. I may have made a mistake putting in for both. Can I get a refund if I can only do one hunt?
Oh I’m glad your going to win those two, I didn’t want to win them all. My wife would kill me!

I checked the website. Still offering tix's.

Waiting to see my name on each of the three lines that cleansed my credit card.

Edit added: overlapped Dsnow's post. My wife already found the charge on the account.

Oak, maybe RMBS *could codify the charge as pornhub or something along those lines. Sheesh!

The website is up but you can't add anything to your cart. Inventories zeroed at 8 PM.

Thanks, all. It was a very successful year. Hopefully some Hunttalkers win some stuff Saturday. On Monday we get to meet with CPW to consider funding for over $325,000 in sheep, mountain goat, and pronghorn projects to be funded from the agency's cut of the auction and raffle revenue.

Silly Facebook (which I rarely check) just sent me the RMBS post today so I may have shared it 2 days late, but excited for
Saturday and - as always - thanks @Oak and RMBS for all the effort and hard work.

Sweet! I won one of the Swarovski drawings! I am stoked!

I am debating whether to go with the 10x42 Range ELs or something else. I already have an older pair (15 years old) of 10x42 ELs. Would the Range be enough of an upgrade that I should go with that or consider a larger pair of binoculars or spotting scope? I’m also seriously tempted by the 12x42 NL Pure binoculars to have the best possible glass for the item I use all the time. For context, I have a small Leupold spotter that I have never used. To date, I have not used spotting scopes but I aspire to go on hunts once I retire from the military that would help to have a spotter. All advice welcomed, this is a great problem to have!

Congrats! I don’t think you can go wrong with anything you choose.

Will they let you pay the price difference, if there is one, between what you won and the new 12 x 42 NL Pure?

I think the 12x42 NL Pure is actually a few hundred bucks cheaper although I am not sure. It is funny you asked because as you were writing your message I was in the midst of editing my post to add that I am seriously tempted by the 12x42 NLs. That is where I am currently leaning actually. I feel like range finders will continue to evolve making the useful life of range finding binoculars less than the premium glass of the NL Pures.

Congrats Mountain Man! Enjoyed calling out your name and the other 12 raffle winners.

If I were a guide I would do the EL Range. Since I am not, and since rangefinders get SO much better with each generation I prefer a smaller, up to date, and separate range finder. I would get the 12x42 NL Pures 100%. Then once you are confident you have the best (this will happen as soon as you hold them in your hands, even before you look thru them) sell your ELs towards a Swaro spotter; use the credit you have left and buy it from RMBS, they are a dealer. I went from 10x42 EL to 12x42 NL last October and could not be happier.
