For many, True cost of Venison:
$34,000 4 wheel drive,
$6000 4 wheeler,
$1200 club fee,
$600 30-06
$800 scope,
$500 3 climbers
$600, 3 ladder stands
$150 Binocuculars
$350 GPS.
$150 Misquito suit,
$150 Camo clothing
$200 Feeder
$500 3 wildlife camera's,
$200 snake boots
(we already have a Bussekin blade)
$1000+ Misc(hunting lic, deer corn, bullets, scents, gas, knife, skinning equipment, meat grinder, sausage stuffer, seasoning, freezer etc)
$40,000 total cost
Yield:
1 80lb spike-----
Lets see---thats about 30lbs of meat, plus we had it processed at $83--------
Shoot so far, only $1333 per lb, but look on the bright side if we get another 80lb deer that would bring us to less than $1000 per lb.
Shoot if we can get two deer like this per year for 5 years(have to trade trucks and 4 wheelers then)we would probably get to below $200 per lb over a 5 year period.

...and that is why I hunt solo, on foot, and with a .22 or some other old time gun ( like my 30-30).

Good afternoon Tristine and Swampers.

You've got it about right Carl. Just don't let the womenfolk know, they might put a stop to our fun. Tristine, you are sworn to secrecy!! smile smile

Josh-
I use a bow as well, but it is an old, straight, longbow-styled (but shortened as a "battle" bow) piece of yew with a rawhide cover. It does the job. I just cant get into the compound bow stuff. I also make my own arrows (but I buy arrow heads). Great stuff for Elk.
