Letís try this again.
 
What would you spend to kill a 160Ē whitetail deer? High fence or low fence, accommodations equal.

Grayson 09-02-2018 10:20 PM

$0 (just want to see your comment because I missed it)

huntressjourney 09-02-2018 10:21 PM

I think it depends on the location.

I missed it also. Got whacked.

jefandaward 09-02-2018 10:23 PM

Depending on the context I’d go anywhere between 2-5k

75 percent chance, regardless of location.

Iíd cap out at 2k for a 75% chance.

flywise 09-02-2018 10:29 PM

Nothing if it involved only a few day deal.
Year long lease with a 75% chance probably a few grand.

Yeah, I know. I feel stupid, but itís really a simple inquiry.

Pedernal 09-02-2018 10:34 PM

I would love to hunt for a 160 class dear on public land... Never had a lease.

Sorry no help here.

Drycreek3189 09-02-2018 10:37 PM

Not a bit more than I'm paying to shoot a 125" deer.

texasdeerhunter 09-02-2018 10:39 PM

That other one didn’t last long...what happened?

kurt68 09-02-2018 10:40 PM

$60

Iím sure someone got offended and posted something inappropriate. I know I didnít.

tigerscowboy 09-02-2018 10:47 PM

Last time I got one in this class I dropped on public 16 yrs ago. If it's buying the shot is your thing, I say "have at it".

Never bought corn, cameras, or box blinds. No offense to everyone that does it. Good Luck.

sailor 09-02-2018 10:47 PM

Nothing.....
I don't hunt horns....

Hammerdown15 09-02-2018 10:50 PM

Iíd love to do it once. For a 75% chance of success, Iíd be a little less likely to gamble. At 75%, Iíd pay a day fee of $100 and a kill fee of $1500 - 2000. Thatís about what I spend on a lease each year with a 20% rate on any deer. I enjoy the hunting more than the trophy but I would like to do it just to say that Iíve done it. High-fence/low-fence/no-fence doesnít particularly matter that much to me. Iíd like to try a few different styles of hunting all at the same time. (Spot and stalk, blind/stand).

From recent history, a 190Ē is about $10K but I think that was 100%.

Pretty sure 100 percent for s 190Ē deer will be more than 10 grand.

Paid $2500 in IL, $1500 in OH. Was a 75% chance of kill, but no guarantee on what. Unless itís a pinned up deer, you take what comes. Also, these werenít on feeders, it was over corn/soybeans in OH and a cutover in IL.

I've been working this very goal 15yrs now on the current 7k acre hf ranch we've been on... sure one or more has been out there to take every year but this whole misconception of being a hunt like some sort of fish in a barrel shoot is the biggest pile of internet crap ever conceived!! sticks in my craw to still see comments about fair chase superior sportsman who won't acknowledge the variables of difficulty between hunting circumstances. HF is no guarantee

Embarrassed & apprehensive to even consider adding up the jack spent...albeit worth every cent. The $$$$ spent isn't about the trophy anyway. More about the time in the field. Mounting a 170 is just an addy & hope it happens this year

BTLowry 09-03-2018 07:25 AM

If it is one of those pesky golf course deer that eat your garden down the dirt...........


I will come get him and plant you a new garden in the spring :D


Seriously though, with my luck I would be in the 25% that didn't get the opportunity :D

I can see $2500-3500 being possible

This seems reasonable

sendit 09-03-2018 07:53 AM

How does one derive on a "75%" chance:confused: Is that a single outing, 3-5 day hunt or possibly a season?

I’ll rephrase. “A darn good chance”. It’s hunting, no guarantee, and you might get it done in a day, and it might take 10 , but a darn good chance.

JDL 09-03-2018 08:06 AM

1500$ for the hunt

2000-3500 kill fee if the animal is hit.

Just my opinion!

Hammerdown15 09-03-2018 09:17 AM

This got me curious and I started checking out prices. It looks like a 160Ē will run $5-6k. Too rich for my blood.

gonehuntin68 09-03-2018 12:31 PM

I’m not going to pay to go sit in a blind that someone else has done all the work. Now if I get to scout and do my own setup I still wouldn’t pay more then $500 and it would have to be at least a 5 day hunt. I realize no place is going to have a 5 day hunt for a 160 buck for 500 with a 75% chance. Now I would pay $4500 to get on a year round Lease that has a 75% chance at a 160 buck but the difference is I get to hunt year round and kill multiple animals. While I do like going after big bucks, I like the hunt more then the horns.

WCB 09-03-2018 12:45 PM

$53 for a 167 2/8" on public land


:D

Traildust 09-03-2018 12:46 PM

$1-2 an inch

We think a lot alike, but I personally couldnít justify paying $4500 for a lease.

What deal! You have any pitchers of the 167 2/8?

sqiggy 09-03-2018 01:43 PM

My biggest is a 166. When you factor in everything from gas, hunt fee, tags, etc., probably cost me from $3000-3200. This was for a 6 day hunt in Kansas with a outfitter. You also have to understand, there is always a chance to shoot something much bigger as well at that same cost, or even nothing at all. I did it for the experience.
But your question is kinda like a "loaded" question.
What I won't do, is hunt a place that has a hunt fee, then a kill fee, and then a $100 per inch fee or something like that.

asu-indian 09-03-2018 02:29 PM

Zero for low if it was a single hunt. Zero for high under any circumstance even though some say the "hunting" is the same as low. (btw i've shot animals behind high fence but it just doesn't appeal to me anymore) I've shot two low fence deer over 160 both on my own lease over feeders at stands that I set up. I look at those animals everyday. The HF animals don't even get a look when I walk in to that room.

To have a 75% chance to shoot a 160, whether on a hunt or on a lease, is going to cost way more than the $1500-$3000 than some have said.

hpdrifter 09-03-2018 02:40 PM

$73. What I just paid for hunting license and ahp.

12RingKing 09-03-2018 04:56 PM

Can’t afford it regardless, but I see people paying 5k give or take for a weekend hunt and a 160iah buck. And, it’ll go up from there I’m sure

systemnt 09-03-2018 05:32 PM

Need to know where the place is so i can calculate the cost of the Uber.

That is a consideration. Thanks for your input.

kenforu 09-03-2018 09:09 PM

I have hunted all
Over Texas and have paid from $450-4500.00 for leases and have only killed bucks up to 130”. It’s not about the size to me but the time I spend with family and friends. I did however get on a lease two years ago in Illinois 55 acres close to my brother so it gives me a reason to go visit him. I was lucky enough last season to shoot a 174” my biggest deer ever and I still smile every time I think about the hunt. I pay $1000.00 for the piece of land.

M16 09-03-2018 09:37 PM

0$ I wonít shoot one that small unless Iím culling.

Rocky, just go on a no kill/no pay hunt with a $250 weekend accommodations fee.

Electrican 09-03-2018 10:25 PM

Ok, I will do a 99% chance for $2,500 or a no kill no pay for $5,000.
Pretty good chance you are gonna be the 1 in 100 on the 99% chance hunt.:)
Just saying.

ThePumaLives 09-04-2018 12:55 AM

I’d pay more to an outfitter to sit up in a tree in the mid west for 3-5 days and have a decent chance at a 160 than I would for a 100% chance to kill one while sitting in a box blind in South Texas. I’d also pay more than both of those to go on a spot and stalk hunt way up in the wilds of Canada and have a semi decent chance at a 160. Then again I’d pay more than all of those to be on a lease where I have a semi decent chance at a 160.

As someone up above mentioned, I don’t even want to add up how much I’ve spent managing our land and we’re still a few years away from having deer that big. Our biggest problem is population control, but when we get there I’ll check back in and let you know how much it cost.
