I am sure there is someone who hunts cheap and provides cheap meat, it just isn’t me or anyone I know or anyone I have ever met. Meat killed by me is more expensive per pound than lobster!

In addition to filling the freezer, hunting and fishing are the perfect way to decompress and recharge from the daily grind of providing for one's family.

Iím the opposite. I donít lose my mind over antlers like some do. Iím killing for the meat and the enjoyment of the hunt. Nice antlers are just a bonus.

And I sure donít pretend it cost any less than the meat I could go buy at the store.

Well my hunting season was a bust cuz I missed everything I shot at! Didn't realize my dominant eye changed to left eye until two days ago. I been hunting public, so pretty much free minus gas money. Hopefully can get one before the season end this weekend

Not everyone pays for a leases, buys a new bow every year, and has a $10k lease vehicle. Then again some folks pull at the heart strings to get access...

Me? I’m the only one in my family that will willingly eat venison, a bit of starvation might be a good thing to provide some perspective

How do your eyes change from right to left eye dominant? That is more interesting to me than price of venison vs meat they grow at the grocery store.

I shoot deer off my place to fill the freezer. All it cost me is keeping the feeder full. I don't hunt horns but they are a cool bonus. That's really the only way I can see it working. Add in any more money and I can buy a calf and eat steak.

I have no idea! It's was pretty upsetting when I missed a big doe at 20 yards, a hog at 8 yards and hog at 10 yards with my muzzleloader. Finally did a test an the difference was dramatic!

I hunt because I enjoy it. I love the meat, the horns (though it's not my biggest priority, I still enjoy a nice rack..... ) and the time in the woods. It's where I go and what I do to slow down a bit. I'm a busy body by nature. So, I work ALOT of hours. Heck, I took a week of vacation week before last and still worked 41 hrs of part time jobs. When I'm not at work, it's a rarity to see me parked on the couch. I need something to do. A good portion of the year, I'm usually making some sort of preparation for deer season or building something I can use while hunting or for camp or whatever. During season, I stay busy hunting (most years). So, hunting for me is multifaceted. It keeps me busy, provides entertainment, and gives me a way to relax and have some down time without wasting away in front of a TV, except for my Cowboys games. I won't even pretend that I "need" to hunt to provide for my family. That would laughable. I spend ALOT of money hunting lIke most folks here. Some folks spend WAY more than I do. Truth be told, I would too if I could afford it. I have never put pen to paper to figure out what I pay for a pound of deer meat. I'm kind of scared to.

My dad and I pay for a lease, our daily drivers are the lease vehicles and we donít have a fancy trailer or lodge at our place. But it still would be cheaper to eat lobster and Kobe beef than what venison comes out to per pound.

The good thing is I love the time spent in the field with my dad and getting great meat is a bonus. If we didnít have a lease for next year I wouldnít care, weíd just fish more together instead of hunting. That said weíre heading out Friday for what will be my last hunt of the season. We need to drop a couple more deer to lower the $/lb ratio on the venison!

The only people hunting to feed their families are the ones running around East Texas that show up on your game cams from time to time. LOL

I hunt public lands only, shoot a 2009 model bow and the same Slick Tricks/Grim Reapers I've had for a while now, arrows are a set I bought 5 years ago or so and I'm down to 9 of the dozen, and I process all my own kills. It's STILL cheaper to buy the most expensive meat HEB has to offer than to eat venison.

It can still be done but getting harder and harder to do. For example I have had dang near free access to meat this year between the axis, black buck, and does I have shot this year that cost me nothing but the bullet to shoot them with. But I don't just hunt for the meat. I hunt for the experience, nothing like chasing muleys in the hills or mountains and you aren't doing it for meat alone. Like mentioned above if I was just chasing meat and had to have a lease etc... I would pay one of the local ranchers to go out and shoot one of his 8 month calves and cut it up at home and be out the same price. But free deer that is processed at home comes out pretty dang cheap.

I just feed the deer in the yard table scraps. We kill a few a year for the freezer. Process everything at the house. It cost me very little per pound. I'm guessing less than $.5- just a 22-250 round and bags of jars. Now price per pound for fish is way up there

it just gives you something to look forward during the year. I bale hay in the hot summer
so I can go on a couple trips to the Lincoln ranch or some other ranch during hunting season. Its about some good time out in the brush country or other places.
then you start planning for the next year and dreaming of the big buck stepping out in bow range . Another hunting season is coming to a end so its time to start planning for next year.

I wouldn't say I hunt to feed my family. We hunt because we enjoy the time out and away from everything else. With that being said, I count on having some venison to help justify some of the expense. Yes, I know buying meat at the store would be cheaper, but then we would miss the experience of the hunt and preparing for the hunting season. Lets face it, the time out at the lease is what most of us are paying for any way isn't it. We have become pretty dependent on venison in our house. Most of our meals has venison in it. So in a way, I hunt to feed my family but that is not why I hunt. Hope this ramble makes sense.

Hey I only appeared once
I get by fairly reasonable. Hunt private family land. I bought HL for me & son, one gas trip, $65 of corn (10 bag deal), plus processing fee on a doe my son killed. Iíd say $300ish for 56 lbs of meat. Fairly equivalent to store price

$2000+ in corn
$1500+ in gas, beer and food
$550 deer mount
$265 processing
$50 in ice to keep deer and cape on ice
$325 for Texas license

I killed one buck this year.

I spend that every year and sometimes I kill a buck and sometimes I just shoot a doe. I only need one deer per year for my wife and I.

I do it because I enjoy it and itís what I like to spend my money on.

I've never seen on here where any one said they hunt to provide meat for their family and I don't know any one that does. I hunt to hunt. The meat is a bonus. I hunt when their is no meat involved at all. I pay nothing for the 3 places I hunt on but the meat is still just a bonus. If you hunt just for the meat then you are hunting for all the wrong reasons.

I don't get why some folks worry about what others do or why they do it. I know fellas who kill 2 deer a year using guns they inherited, and they hunt for less than $100 for their license and APH. So basically for the cost of the license and a couple of bullets, and processing the deer themselves, I'd say they come out way ahead. But what do I know?

My lone deer this year cost me the grand total of less than $5 no lease fees, I hunted my in-laws farm, and we were up there for family functions that we would be there for anyways. Ammo and 1 small propane bottle for the Mr. Buddy Heater, so that's the cost equation. Tell me where you can get 60+ lbs of meat for less than $0.05 a lb granted, I wish I had been able to afford the lease this year...I missed the heck out of sitting around the campfire with my buddies and listening to the kids running around enjoying themselves. I wish my venison had cost $10-15 per lb...but I wasn't going to spend money foolishly when it was needed elsewhere for the year. Maybe 2018 will start off better for the company and I'll be able to swing getting on a lease again this year
