My math is similar to yours

But nobody can decide to give me the boot or make up a bunch of BS rules I have to adhere to either

Last year they were about 1400 each. No new blings or feeders but we did put in a new water system that my share was about 350.

The total has got two commas in it, and then divide by zero....priceless.

New dirt
New fences and gate
New stands
New feeders
Yellow feed and brown feed
Game cameras
Electric pole
New kubota
New roads
New well and new tank coming

No way I'm doing this math

I figured if I hadn't bought my hunting place and spent so much chasing deer and hogs I could have retired a little earlier. But who cares! I rather enjoy it now vs spending a few extra years in the recliner during retirement.

Not much... My wife killed a doe and I killed two bucks and a doe.

No lease cost - Hunt only family pieces of land with somewhere to stay
Maybe a few hundred for corn and sweet feed
My gun was bought 15 years ago, bow in 2015, and my wife's rifle I won in a drawing
Don't own or need an ATV
Cameras last me a few years so maybe $50 per season
I buy 6 arrows and 6 broadheads about every 3 years so $40 per season
Tree ladder stands were bought or built many years ago
Feeders were bought about 8-9 years ago
I do my own meat processing

I guess if I break it down, we spent about $100 per deer not counting fuel costs.

lease $1000
corn $400
blinds $300
game cameras $130
feeder $120
arrows $100

1 deer $2050 plus $90 for processing so i paid $2140 for one deer
Not sure I want to know! My wife will cut my allowance.

This is how I feel. I can't put a price on what I "Live" for. Worth every penny. I couldn't imagine the thought of not hunting.

How can I put a price on this?

That ain't no joke. The deer were $400 to process and we got 81 lbs of meat so as long as I can make sure the wife thinks deer is less than organic grass fed beef, it's all good.

Haha yes, I'm there! I always laugh when people say, I hunt and fish for my family to survive....when we spend $$$$ on corn, side by sides, Mathews bows, etc. And act like we couldn't go buy all of HEB for the same money.

Sitting in a restaurant one night many years ago, a man approached my dad and step-mother and asked what it cost to hunt in Mexico...

My step-mother had no idea what it cost and my dad looks at the man and his wife and says...

"...Sir, there's just some things that gentlemen don't discuss in the presence of ladies..."

...

Two draw hunts and a five day hunt on family land in Arkansas. Probably less than $2k for six deer including an axis buck. I can't complain.

Hate when folks put a price per pound on their harvest. And what about the fun, the memories with family/friends, relaxing...etc. Buy meat at the store if cost is a factor.
