there was a study out about 2 years ago in Florida. It said that the recreational fisherman spends in the neighborhood of $300-$400 dollars per pound of fish consumed(all money spent on fishing in florida, even catch and release guys, divided by the number of pounds of fish consumed). Now go ask your grandfather or father what he spent to fish and hunt. Then again he wasn’t paying $1.50 for 12 ounces of bottled water either.
Joined: 9/9/2004I didn’t think I was going to spend very much this year, after all, most of my stuff is already bought. Of course I’ll need licenses and tags. And there are the CX Maxima Hunter arrows I want to try. And, oh yeah, maybe a new release. And, oh yeah, I almost forgot about the $100+ I dropped on a new sight about a month and a half ago. And, oh yeah, the money I spend at 3D shoots, (I’m really practicing for the upcoming season). And, oh yeah, all the gas I’ll burn going to and from hunting spots. And, oh yeah, WHY DID YOU REMIND ME??????????It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.
I am scared to add it all up.I know duck meat has to be the most expensive meat in the world. More than trophy fishing offshore or any big game animal. It’s not unusual for guys to spend $30,000 a YEAR and kill 25-100 ducks and get less than a pound of meat of each – much less on something like a teal.
You can’t even let thoughts like that enter your head.
I bet many who answered the question didn’t factor in other stuff such as – buying a truck when it was time for a new vehicle – that more matched your hunting activities than your daily driving. Or amarotizing out your 4-wheeler over X number of years and stuff like that. Depressing heh.

Joined: 2/8/2006I spend just at the $500 dollar range on most yrs. but the trip to Illinois this year is giong to put me up there a ways. Maybe next year a new Mathews depending on what they come up with.I belong to three hunting clubs that total $2000 per year and spend countless dollars on misc clothing, calls, scents archery equipment.arrows,broadheads gas, etc, etc, etc. The bottom line is that I spend way to much and my wife should be nominated for sainthood for putting up with me although I was already a fanatic 25 years ago when we got married so she cant claim not to have known what she was getting into when she married me.
i owe you an apology for being a smart…, i was trying to be funny. i spend a lot…and will continue to spend with no apologies or regrets. when i’m on my deathbed i won’t be thinking about the money, i’ll be remembering all my adventures and the hunting / fishing buddies that shared them with me.
