Wow!! Thanks to your generous donations, we met and EXCEEDED our goal of collecting enough money for Rancher Jeremy Prock to buy his special adaptive hunting equipment to allow him to hunt again. In fact, he has already ordered it, and it is on its way to him!!
CBS 11 (KTVT) ran the story last week, and you can see the video by clicking on the story in the top left corner of the Ranch website (959theranch.com).
There are so many wonderful people to thank for their generous acts of kindness. After hearing about Jeremy's incredibly selfless act of buying a new winter coat for a total stranger, here's what happened....
(1) Jay Presti, TV host of Blue Collar Adventures on NBC Sports, told Jeremy that he is taking him on a special hunt at the 8000 acre Blue Creek Whitetails Ranch!! Wow!!!
(2) The Justin Frazell Show and Charla Corn of 95.9 The Ranch have arranged for one of Jeremy's favorite Texas artists and an avid hunter himself, Phil Hamilton, to be Jeremy's hunting buddy on the trip with Jay Presti. And Phil says he may even pick up Jeremy in his tour bus. Pretty sweet ride to the hunt. Who knows? We may see Jeremy and Phil featured on an upcoming episode of Blue Collar Adventures (bluecollaradventures.com) with Jay Presti!
(3) Also thanks to Jay Presti, Taco Casa, and Cabela's, Jeremy will be completely outfitted to hunt this year with a shopping spree at Cabela's!
(4) Jeremy told us he would love to see Brandon Jenkins live, so 95.9 The Ranch and Rockin Rodeo Denton are giving VIP treatment to Jeremy and twenty of his friends on February 27th when Brandon Jenkins plays at Rockin Rodeo!
(5) Ranch Artist, Clay Thrash, and his manager, Keith Reeves, want to take Jeremy on another hunt!
(6) Rancher Paul Moore of MHR Hunting Ranch in Springtown has donated a spring turkey, hog, or coyote hunt to Jeremy!
(7) Bradley Hehn and the Taylor Hodak Band want to take Jeremy on another hunt!
(8) Ken Harland of Decatur Taxidermy has donated a free mount to Jeremy!
(9) Bill Cox of Cox Wildlife Ranch has donated a free hunt to Jeremy!
And..... to keep paying it forward, 95.9 The Ranch is giving FREE ADMISSION to Ranch Bash this year to everyone who donated to Jeremy's cause. If you donated, just show up, and your name will be on the Will Call list on October 18th at Ranch Bash. And yes, even if you donated "anonymously," your name will be on the Will Call list (but not made public).
All the money donated through the "Malone's Roundup" link on the Ranch website goes directly to Jeremy, so you are still welcome to donate over the next few days. Though Jeremy has already ordered his adaptive hunting equipment, he has very limited financial means, so anything additional you donate would go a long way toward helping Jeremy.
Again, thank you to everyone involved for your incredibly kind hearts and for helping to make sure that good things happen to good people -- and most of all, thanks to Jeremy Prock for setting an example for us all.
