    I dont think that at age 17 i have spent anywhere near that much, but i can certainly see myself headed that way before too long. Unfortunately hunting is getting very expensive but once you start you can't stop.

      I have also spent my fair share in hunting equipment and it doesnt look like im going to stop spending money on it any time soon either.
      Is it duck season yet?

        All I know is that by the tiem I added up all that i have spent on hunting in the last 2 years, and divided it by the number of pheasants I have put in my freezer, the cost comes out to the equivalent of about $876.00 for a single chicken...

        ...I need to get MORE GEAR! :d :p :d

          I'm sure I am getting close to the lifetime figure at age 30. It's just one of those things that I try not to add up. On the other hand, fishing, I am way above that

                I'm not even going to try to figure it up. It'll probably scare the hell out of me. But i do know that I'm way over that figure. I would HATE to be the AVERAGE outdoorsman.

                  here's an example of spending money on hunting in regards to Storm's post. When I head to North Dakota with 4 guys for fowlin' for 4 days,I end up spending $114 for my license and Brandon's, about $150 per person in gas, about $50/day in meals, about $45/nite per guy for lodging,and maybe another $20/day for other stuff. So,in my 4 days,I've spent about $700 or so. Now,times that with how many non-residents go to North Dakota each year and you can see the huge impact hunters make on smaller towns in rural U.S.A.

                          Quacker,

                          I couldn't agree with you more - when you consider the cost for what ends up in the freezer it sounds expensive, but making Deas's dog retrieve a bird that Deas didn't shoot? I would have paid a lot more for that! (Hey Ethan, :zrazzing: ) :p
