Guess ranch joined right now by Ted Kimball from or in K hunting company because it's like Queen Mountain and R and K. It's all put together here, So thanks for hosting us here. Common crowd to have you here. It's been a wonderful event so far. We're just getting started. And you brought a lot of color to the event, and we're glad to have you with us. Well, I am the comic relief. So there's that. How did this Connection with SIG Start first of all Well as an outfitting company were one of the largest outfitters in the western United States. We got about 700 hundreds a year and We use equipment we use, uh, optics. We use camel. We use ammo. We use guns and We have an interface with a lot of hunters who are wanting to know what what kind of equipment are guides use? Okay, And so as as Sig has entered the hunting arena. Um, they they're the best at what they do. They make Everything really well. And so as they started to introduce optics and guns for hunting, we were very interested in our our guide started using them and we started interacting with their reps and All of a sudden we started talking about having this this event. What's incredible facility? Give me some of the history of this because you have multiple lodges, right? Correct? Yeah, throughout the Intermountain West, but This. This to me is our flagship lodge here. Queen Mountains, an 8000 square foot lodge that sits at 8000 ft, So we're way up here. There's a huge log structure. It's beautiful. Thank you. Thanks. Now we built it ourselves. Our guides built this lodge. Actually, week I hand sanded a lot of these logs that you're looking at, and Look at him every time and remember that, but a lot of blisters there. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, And so, um, we we, um uh, Haven't we sit on a ranch? That's 1/5 generation cattle and sheep operation. Um, these guys came out with the original pioneers, The Broadbent family and We were in partnership with them. We leased the hunting rights and the recreational rights on this on this beautiful 100,000 Acre ranch Well, and, um, manage the wildlife. We do it very carefully harvesting only a few single percents of the animals each year. And I have a degree in genetics. And we have a couple of wildlife PhDs that work with us to do that. Well, so we're good stewards of the land for long term. Investment. And there's many ranchers have discovered in the West Wildlife Management is something that generates quite a bit of revenue for them, actually. Rivals there AG production and it's good for the habitat. It's good for the wildlife. Exactly. Exactly. There's this benefit all the way around on that you have to have a wildlife livestock interface. And and the hunting is a big part of that. Hunters are by far and away the best conservationists in our country if you take The Sierra Club, the nature Conservancy and look at the land that they set aside. We we, we, as hunters dwarf that by multiple fold the amount of money that goes into conservation. I like to look at us as farmers that love the animals we raise and we harvest a small percentage of it. I like that. That's a good way to put that. All right. So you know your background. Your also a veteran. You said you actually do a lot of the wounded warrior stuff out here as well? Yes. So we wounded words the general. Um, uh, description. We work with a number of agencies that bring wounded soldiers. I did not mean wounded Warrior project. That's a whole different. Great guys. Great guys. But we we we Bringing in soldiers that have been wounded. And, uh, donate hunts and Jenna Waller and her group with Skull bound, um, is one of our regular. She did a great show last year with a double double amputee Marine who got an elk with us. Awesome, awesome video. Movie and, uh, just have a real sense of how as a retired veteran myself that sacrifice and Of these veterans that come back to sometimes some pretty tough situations like to bring them out into this, um, is a very healing place. You know, to beyond these mountains, it really is. So what kind of critters do you have around us here? So while we were eating dinner last night and had build their running past us on the hill across I got this morning. There's pronghorn. Oh, and skyline right out here.

"Probably when the most difficult things. I've experienced through. This is trying to sleep at night because trying to do that. Trying to lay down trying to get comfortable and even with the mindset. 'cause if i'm laying on my stomach feels like my arms going through the bed and that feels weird. It just doesn't feel right and it's hard to sleep in sleeping was a real problem for quite a while. Alcoholism came into play. I was very sensitive to the prescription pain medication because my mom is addicted prescription pain medication. And so i kicked the pain drugs. I was just going to suffer through the pain. And i wasn't going to be addicted this stuff. There was so much going on in my head at the moment. Like i had all these feelings and i had anger towards a person that hit me in this compassion towards the people that were helping me and for the most part i just dealt with it i would just like not sleeping but every once in a while you know i'd have a few drinks. And suddenly the pain's gone and have a few more drinks and actually go to sleep. Well and so there was a bit of a self medicating period as well. My bills are coming due. But i wasn't making the money i was making was still working and because the accident wasn't my fault. My insurance company decided it wasn't their responsibility to pay but the person who hit me responsibility to pay so the person that hit me. How the twenty five thousand dollar policy on his truck so his policy paid the twenty five thousand dollars plus the cost of my motorcycle. My personal insurance on a motorcycle covered the underinsured motorists which was forty thousand dollars. And so there's all these little loopholes in the insurance made it so nobody was really paying significant amount so when everything was said and done i ended up being like four hundred and forty thousand dollars in debt with my own insurance company. Blue cross decided that they'll just put a four hundred forty thousand dollar. Lean on me and let the bankruptcy courts decide whether or not there's any money they're my former business partner. It said that they would take care of me. He didn't and my relationship started to suffer with my girlfriend as well so they had a benefit concert for me in this barn kana. Like i didn't go to it. Because i was still not in good enough shape to spend a night out and so after maybe a month of being at home and not going anywhere in being slightly embarrassed that was in a wheelchair. I went out for a drink with friends and i went to the bar on. That had the same benefit concert for me. So my first night out in kona so came up and said you need to be careful the person that hit us a cop son if you try to retaliate in sue the police are gonna come after you. And they're gonna make you leave hawaii. I dismissed it right away. Like i just went about my business. Went back to my drink and so is like what did he say to you and i told him he's like that's an off duty cop really off duty. Cop just came to a person in a wheelchair and threatened them. That if i do anything about it. They're going make me leave my home much anger in so much helplessness. I never did sue the guy but two weeks after my accident he actually went out and got another. Dui he didn't even like stop drinking and driving. He was sentenced to five years jail for felony negligent injury. But reading through the charges there was actually a section that he has to loses license for a minimum amount of time at. He has to apologize to me reading this. I was like. I have to prepare myself for having this conversation with this person and so as i go. I'm going to prepare myself to forgive this person that took my arm and my leg but he never called and i wonder if he cares like i wonder if he sees me is some random person that he nearly killed but doesn't care so my girlfriend had found this procedure that fuses her tibia and fibula together wraps muscle tissue around the whole thing. And it makes you more comfortable for prosthetics. It was about three month recovery time and within the first week of being on a prosthetic i was strong prosthetic than i ever was in the previous three years. I'd gone through a couple of years of just like everything being against me. This horrible bankruptcy. Like i had half a million dollars in debt to my insurance company. I was eighty thousand dollars in debt to the irs because they didn't follow my taxes of the year. My accident everything was negative and suddenly i had done my bankruptcy. I didn't in compromise with the irs. Was able to pay back. And i remember the day. I walked in the post office to drop off that last check and The people of this local post office had seen my dad come in to pick up. My mail was still in the hospital. They'd see me reeling with my wheelchair. It amy like walking again and then they saw me come in one day Tiers of my is just like go. Mica finally clear this frigging debt. I'm finally debt. Free like i might zero. Like i was so happy to be zero at that time where after i started feeling better i was able to walk better. I started trying to clean carpets. Again i start trying to go fishing again. Star going for hikes with friends. You know it went from three years of just trying to survive too. okay. I'm ready to actually do something with my life again. After that it's like what do i do now. Randomly at come across this website if people who had sailed across the world by themselves and set a record and as i know there's no double-amputee on this list. I bet i could do that. I'd never sailed before. And is i have to do something like i can't just struggle the rest of my life trying to get back to like poverty so that was it. I was just like okay. I'm gonna go sail around the world by myself. And the record i wanted was to be the first double-amputee to solo circumnavigate the globe. I told my girlfriend about in which she wasn't too thrilled about. Because it was also sailing around the world by myself. We've gone through this struggle together. And she was this amazing person. Is this amazing person. And i'm so thankful for her. But i had to be by myself for awhile. I went from being this individual person to having this accident to suddenly living with somebody and then having these three years of struggle but there was something that was just like i need to refine my own identity and i didn't feel like i could do that with her. It was super unfair to her. And so i was still pushing our away from the beginning of the accident. There was something that i felt that. I had to get back to being.

Oklahoma allows other states non-permitted gun owners to carry within its borders so-called reciprocity now, Oklahomans Twenty-one and up. We'll have the same right?

"So that you can do what you're supposed to do. Guys. People aren't always going to appreciate us. That's okay. A man doesn't need that acknowledgement or recognition in order for him to have a desire to be good at being a man he knows what his job is. He knows what his role is in his responsibility is and not only does he know what it is. He has a willingness to perform, and he has the ability to go out and do it as well. So that's a big long rent for some of the differences. Between what being a good man is. And on the other hand what it means to be good at being a man. So guys I'd encourage you go check out this book, pretty interesting. It's very academic. So at times dry, but it's an interesting book, it's called manhood in the making by David Gilmour. He actually goes in depth into some of Michael Hirschfeld's work. And specifically the book the Poetics of manhood, Jack Donovan talks about this at length quite a bit as well. So those are some resources outside of what we're doing here. I'm going to try to share some more of my thoughts when it comes to what masculinity is I mean, I've been doing it three and a half years, but we're going to get deeper. We're going to get deeper into this stuff. I've been reading a lot lately on what manhood is throughout time and cultures and history. And I'm gonna share those books with you. I'm gonna give you my thoughts and my inside. And of course, the insight from the greats from throughout history. So I'm glad that you're on this journey. I'm glad that you're on this mission. I would encourage you to go out. And look at yourself inventory yourself. Are you a good, man? Or are you good at being a man or or you both which I think is probably a we all should be striving for so go out there guys share. This message get good at doing these things perform the way that you're supposed to perform for yourself and your family and your community and your business and every other facet of life. Can't tell you how grateful and that you're on this journey with me, these these are things that I'm working on myself. I wish I could say that I'm perfect with these things, and I have it all figured out in as much as I think I'm teaching you about what it means to be a man I'm talking to myself just as much as anybody else. So I'm out there trying to do these things and I encourage you to do the same. So with that said, we'll call it a day. We'll call it a a week. I will see you next week on Tuesday got a very powerful conversation with a friend of mine. His name is Sydney Smith. He is a triathlete. He is an avid bow hunter. And he's also a double amputee in the guys story is absolutely incredible. He's an inspiring, man. And he is somebody who is. Also, working on becoming good at being a leave their guys go out take action become a man you. Thank you for listening to the order of man podcast ready to take charge of your life.
