Joined: 5/4/2005Bad Karma to add it all up. Wife might see it and put a stop to it.
Joined: 7/16/2006I am affraid to post a dollar amount for fear my wife will find out!
I would say normally about $200-$300 a year.
This year is quite a bit more than usual. I bought a new switchback xt and I am going on a black bear hunt in September. I am hoping to have an above average taxidermy bill also!
This year I’m in the 3000-5000 range.
Canada bear hunt + Taxidermy =$3800.00 plus my other hunnting expenses.
Location: South DakotaWould that include lost wages?? I usually take three months off just to hunt.

Joined: 1/10/2006On average, I’d think it’s between $500-1500…….but then again, the last 3 years have been above average years……..ATV, New rifle, New Bow, etc, etc, etc…………not to mention new clothing since I’ve lost about 100lbs in the last 2 years…………..(gastric bypass surgery).
Boy, this is surly a depressing topic…..hope the wife doesn’t see this oneIt adds up fast but then any sport or recaration does. I have a lifetime license so I don’t buy permits, I hunt on friends land so I don’t pay a lease, but gas, my new switchback (have to average it over a few years) packaging supplies after I harvest and everything else I am sure has to be over 501 a year. Anyone that says that it does not cost them anything, well, I wouldn’t vote for them in an election,

Did my girlfriend put you up to this??
I would guess it’s between $5K-$10K a year. I work in a Sporting Goods store, so it’s really hard to not buy the newest, greatest gizmos!!I cut the money I spend buy smart shopping and discipline. First I don’t get caught up in the latest, greatest market hype. Often good gear cost a little more than the cheap stuff and last a lot longer. Take care of your gear and it will last even longer.
What I do need I buy at the end of the season when it is on clearence. Six 100 grn Thunderheads before the season cost $35, same heads cost $7 at the end of season on clearence. I found Gorilla hang on stands for only $25, picked up 3 for next season.
I inventory my gear at the end of season and replace what’s worn out for a fraction of the original cost. This gives me more money for travel and out of state tags.
