    Began making a list of items (needs vs wants) I will be purchasing for the 2010 archery season. My budget included arrows, broad heads, tags, clothing, gas, food, etc. and I was a little shocked by the total :oops:

    If its not too personal to answer the question, where does everyone stand?

    Come on October 1st :X

    All together at our camp this preseason, about $14,000 will be spent between all of us. But that includes $5,000 to plant 5-6 acres of corn, seed for everything that’s not planted in corn, 3 new bows, 2 new scent blocker suits (head to toe), 5 new lock-ons, one new climber, a new HD video camera, and some other stuff. This year is a big year for us, we are basically going bow only so we are making a lot of one time purchases and have a couple of people (besides myself) buying new bows and scent control gear. My portion is about $2500

    Countryboy95 becareful using those Baker Treestands. Back in the ’80’s I used Baker’s all the time. They are very dangerous. We called them death traps. I have slid down many a tree with them when I didn’t want to slide down a tree! Burnt all the skin off my hands more than once! Sorry to hi-jack just want to give warning.

    Since I’m getting a .45-70 for my 50th B’day present from my wife :D (out of our money) #-o As a bow (mostly) plus gun and muzzleloader hunter I’d bet that this season will definitely be in the $1000-5000 range. Hopefully, closer to the lower end.

    Last year I bought my DXT and related items, and a new rifle and bow for my 8 yr old to start hunting with so all that was around $2000-2500. But most years I don’t spend anywhere near that. I hunt within 5 miles of my house (free family land except for seed for plots and repairs on our stands.) My license costs $50. I use my 25 year old Remington 30-06 during rifle season and I handload my own rounds with my stock pile of IMR powder and Nosler ballistic tip bullets I bought a few years back. My biggest cost most years is breakfast/lunch before we hit the woods, ice for the meat coolers and zip lock freezer bags to bag up the meat. I figure my average per year is $500-600. I also buy closeout/discount equipment when I find it (Bass Pro or Cabela’s website or my local dealers). I get some pretty good stuff that way.

    It is simple really

    6 – G5 Montec™ Broadheads $ 70
    NY State Tags
    Sportsman $ 49
    Bowhunting stamp $ 21
    Deer managment permit $ 10

    Now sir its your turn to tell me why you spend more than $279.
    Im not having a dig at you I’ am genuinly interested in why people spend so much…

    The problem with the world is "stupidity" I'm not saying there should be the death penalty for stupidity, but why don't we just remove the safety labels from everything and let the problem sort itself? -unknown
