@rafflemule

You're banned from the raffles anyway, right? :chuckle:    I seem to remember HW taking a vote when you were away and it was determined for the sake of others that you are required to sit out. ;)


I did get all excited and start talking about moose, so I can see where the confusion came in. :tup:

I did sit out last year because I have the trifecta taken care of in WA.    :chuckle:    But, after going about 0-45 this year in draws I have the itch to buy a few tickets before Friday.     :sry:
dang brad give everyone else a chance! :chuckle:

I was wondering how many people had noticed the # of Goat tags sold.
This was going to be my year too. I'm young (ish), money to burn, no spouse to tell me no. I usually get 100 tickets a year. Was gonna really up my game this year.
Then life throws you a curve ball and I end up buying a new house. Haven't even closed yet. UGH!!!No way I can throw down serious cash now.
I want to see what Mnt Goat tastes like! And I love backpacking in those areas.
I just wanted to share my sob story.

I'll see if I can work out a way for you to see what mountain goat tastes like if you cook some for me too. It won't be the same as your own goat, but we can make it happen.

Ive seen the food on here you cook. If I draw a goat tag I would be honored to let you cook it up for me for a share of the meat!!

I'd probably take you up on it.

That would be cool. I'm a firm believer that not all meats need to taste like beef or chicken. So even if it's "gamey" "funky" it just needs the right treatment. Cooking for people is always fun.

Aren't the goat raffle tickets cheaper then the ram tickets? So really by buying 2 he just matched you, thus giving him the same chance as you? :dunno: :chuckle:

Pretty sure Gringo bought and won last year with one ticket.  I don't think that ticket is valid again this year so unless he bought a ticket this year he technically has no chance of winning putting Pman way out in front as far as odds of drawing.

Oh yeah, baby. This is all over but getting the tag in the mail!  :chuckle:
So pretty much  :yeah:
