    When the VISA company calls me and sez STOP….. well, I STOP :D

    Seriously…. other than the tag expence, I am a low budget hunter.

    Camo…. dont care!

    scent control garments…. will not buy them,I will use the wind and other
    natural scent measures :thumbup

    Most of my “bait”… yes I bait, comes from local apple trees… I do spend around $60 on corn…. I have a dozen hunting arrows that I purchased two years ago… two Does in the freezer….. I’m still good for 10 more years ;)

    Well under $500…wish I had the money to spend thousands of dollars every year. So far I bought a bag target because my reezen destroyed my old one and my 3D target last year. I also spent $30 on blue dampners. The only other thing I will probably get is my license and tags here in VA. I wish I had the money to buy my finace a passion and deck it out, maybe when we get the 2010 taxes back. I guess that will bring me to about $175 or less this year.

    I did not answer the pole as my wife has enough amo with the mystry of the two or more whatever it is Hard copy catalog’s from Cabela’s every year. :^O

    the other thing is I don’d want to know. If I knew I was eating a $500 duck or a steak from a $5000 elk, it just may tend to spoil my apatite, causing me to go on more hunts and fishing trips just to forget. ](*,)

    Tags is all it costs me in Colorado … plus gas.

    I put in for Mule Deer each year, but really don’t expect to be drawn. Draw is the only way to get a Mule Deer tag in Colorado … been 5 years now ](*,)
