    Does the price of bow seasons 2 weeks of unsuccesfull mountain humping roll into the hopefully better results coming up for 2nd rifle season 1 cow elk and 2 muley tags?

    I spent about 1600 on gas for that mess. Pulling a trailer over mountain passes, coming back for 1 wk of work, going back and then coming back home for a job interview then back up sure adds up. BTW got the job and will be making a good deal of money more (as long as background investigation checks out...it should)
    Either way I will have to stick with WAM on this one....bet rest assured I have been given an ultimatum and I had better come back with a few hundred pounds of meat one way or another lol

      This is the first year I didn't buy any new equipment. Hunting shouldn't cost me anything this year. I hunt my own land, and shouldn't even have to spend money on gass to get there. One of my buddies usually does the driving if I let himm come down with me. Havent had to buy any ammo in several years now.

        Home from another $15 trip to the fields this morning. Four geese in eight shots (last one soaked up three rounds). The price of meat is dropping!

          I've always been able to walk, just not extended distances.
          Losing that 10 pounds was a big help too! Need to drop 15 or 20 more. I'd be back to high school weight! LOL!
          If I walk at a sensible speed and rest often, I do quite well. It's when I stand on these ragged ol feet a long time that they begin to bark.
          I'm good for about a half mile before resting.

            Not much in my case. I hunt private land near home with no lease or fees. I’m paid for vacation days. I’ll buy a box of ammo and probably take 10 shots at the range to make sure my scope is dialed in. I’ll probably do my own game processing. I have all the supplies and equipment I need, although I suppose I could amortize all those costs over the years. I don’t count food costs since I’d still be eating if I stayed home and worked or watched football. About my only direct cost this year will be fuel and wear on my vehicle, which won’t add up to much. Oh, and licenses of course. I have resident tags for deer, elk and antelope, which cost me about $120.

              I'm not buying any nonessentials this year, but still I'll have a couple hundred in license and permits, new broadheads, not to mention a couple days off work and a little for the sausagemaker and freezerbags. All told I'll be well into four figures. Hopefully I'll have a freezerfull to show for it.

                Its going to cost a lot more than buying an entire cow.
