    I’m just over $3000 now, without my Bow tags or permits…

    but not each & every year…

    I purchased all new gear here,
    bow and all accessories, sight, rest, 42 arrows, bow quiver, case, release,
    couple of Morrells to shoot at,
    My three Badlands Bags, Scent Lok suit with Base Slayers,
    two new axes,
    & on and on…

    Defina-+-tively single…

    Some things are better left NOT figured out. I don’t even want to know this year’s tally. New bow, food plots, dozen trail cams, Iowa tags and the trip down, bunch of misc. gear. Without actualy adding it up, it all seems worth it. There are worse things to spend money on.

    Hunting memories are priceless :thumbup

    Probably 500-1000 in an average year, but 2000+ on a year with a non-local hunt (bear, elk, etc.)

    I’m usually in the 500-1500 range but I’m in the middle of an above average year. :p

    I had to put 5-10k just to factor in property taxes, feeders, feed etc. There comes a price in money and sweat throughout a year to have a decent chunk of land to hunt on. Not that hunting is the only reason to have a farm. :whistle

    A lot…but then again I’m single. A few years ago we had a 60 day rifle season for deer and I made a hunt on 57 of those.

    Being single helps. I have a lot of friends who call at 3pm on a Tuesday and say let’s go hunt XXX tomorrow and I’ll be at their house at 4am the next day. You can’t do that much if your married and have kids. While my friend that may be the only time he does it that year but I’ll do it with 20+ friends plus the hunts I have set up myself.

    lol I was just curious because i am just getting back into hunting after 15 or so years off and I think I will be close to $14,000.00 by the end of this year( I am at 9500 right now). Thats going to include only one guided hunt and thats going to be less then $1,000.00. I also might buy a new camper so I could be at $25k. I thought maybe I was getting out of hand so I wanted to see where others were at. I have a friend who spends more then $50k a year every year. I guess I am lucky cause my wife even though a virgin to the outdoors is absolutey thrilled with it and wouldn’t mind if we spent all our extra money to be in the woods :smt25
    I’d personally like to take some lessons from you guys that are under 1500 but wonder if thats geographically affected (ie public lands). I am really surprised to see so many of you guys are in that range.
