Folks, I decided to get an Inreach mini for my hunting trips. I have a spot messenger that was given to me, so I'm doing the same. Somebody's wife or S.O. will be happy that you can text her to tell her you're okay. Here's how I'll handle it.

Put your name in the thread with a number next to it, in sequential order: First poster is 1, second 2, etc. Next Friday at noon, I'll close the list. If there are 56 people wanting it, for example, I'll use a random number generator to pick a number between one and fifty six. Totally random.

Or, before we start, if anyone has a better idea as how to run it, I'm okay with changing the rules, just not after the contest starts. Contest starts 8 am MDT. Names prior to that time will not be entered into the contest.

I'll pay shipping. Your only cost is a free archery lesson to a deserving beginning archer. Honor system.....I trust you.

Good luck.

bk, have everyone interested post a picture of their wife/so when she's angry. Angriest wife wins, can't think of anyone who might need it more! Ha!

From: bad karma
21-Jun-19
Oh, that's funny. But whoever judges who has the angriest wife would be in a tough spot.

From: jstephens61

Kevin If you want to draw 2 numbers, I’ve got one with a camo I’m looking to get rid of. Can’t think of a better way to do it.

From: KSflatlander
21-Jun-19
Very kind of you BK. Very cool. I’m considering an InReach myself.

From: boothill
21-Jun-19
Kevin I'd throw my name in if your number is programmed in it. That way I can message you from my hunt this fall.

From: bad karma
21-Jun-19
Yeah, "head to these coordinates with your backpack and help get him off the mountain."

I may do the same with you. Me and the ebike may get pretty tired after a few hours.

Jstephens, if you're in, great.....that would be two up for grabs to a deserving bowhunter.

From: ohiohunter
22-Jun-19
Very generous, everyone enjoys the “pay it forward” threads including myself.

I say it’s yours to do as you please, your system is perfect, and it will give someone piece of mind who otherwise may not have had it.

22-Jun-19
I would like to be in on that,,,,,, no sure what you mean by putting a number on this thread though,,,,,, thanks

Counting off is what I wanted since that maximizes the odds of selection. IF they just pick a number, there would be several blanks in the middle. This is easier.

No cutoff, other than midnight tonight. I may extend it just because once I sleep, I don't want to wake up but it won't be far after midnight.

From: svrelk
24-Jun-19
I hope I'm not too late.. our Bear camp has no service at all and it's a real pain not being able to text the xwife that I'll be late with our son cause the hunting is good. #51 I think.

From: The dream
24-Jun-19
Very nice offer. I'm in wife would sleep better this fall. #51

From: bad karma
25-Jun-19
The dream is no. 52, as SVR elk is ahead of him.

SVR, you made it in time. 3 Spots, so far 52 potentially lucky folks.

25-Jun-19
#53 I think.

From: bad karma
25-Jun-19
For some reason, I woke up precisely at midnight tonight. And I was certainly not trying to.

So let the fun begin. We have three Spot messengers. One from me, one from JStephens61 and one from DJB.

I'm using a random number generator from Random.org. which, according to their website, is somehow generated from atmospheric noise (In the 1980's, I learned of a communications system that generated random transmissions by bouncing them off a completely random event, meteor showers, for military use.)

There are 53 bowhunters trying their luck. I wish I had 53 to give away.

Without any further ceremony, here are our three winners:

I hit the random number generator the first time, and the lucky winner is:

Winner no. 1: the Dream.

Congratulations Please PM me with your mailing address.

Winner no. 2: No. 45, Link. (And no, the picture had nothing to do with it).

Congratulations. Please PM JStephens61 with your mailing address.

Winner no. 3: No. 30, Bentstick54.

Congratulations, please PM DJB with your mailing address.

Thank you all. I had a lot of fun with this.
