When November 15th rolls around every year, I can’t help but think back to the years that we sent Rovin’ Ralph deer hunting in the woods with a loaded weapon. What were we thinking?
The very first year we tried deer hunting live on the air, Ralph actually was able to get a deer!
He took my old Army brick-like cellphone into the woods with him, and surprisingly, we were able to get a good enough cell signal for him to be able to call back to the station (and that was back in the mid 90’s!). While on the air with us, he was able to fire off a few shots and bagged a deer in November of 1995 or 1996. (When he brought my cell phone back that morning, it still had deer blood all over it…yuck!)
Here is the audio of him getting that doe back then. The other voice you here in this audio is Ralph’s intern “Moose”…
In 1999, Rovin’ Ralph took his soon to be wife, Trixie, into the woods with him. Here are the audio clips from that hunting trip…
Cut #1: Getting Ready
Cut #2: Nothing Yet
Cut #3: Taking a Shot
Good luck to all you hunters this year. Please be safe out there.
