Default Old early 70s info from the YO Ranch

I thought this was pretty cool (I like old stuff) so I thought Id share a few pics of it. I was cleaning out a closet last night that had some of my Dads stuff in it. There was a box in there that had this 10-12 page brochure from the YO Ranch. Appears to be from the 72-74 time frame maybe? Tells all about the location, the lodging, your guide, what caliber of rifle is recommended, accommodations, night activities, and the last page has the prices for the different animals. $1000 was a lot of money back in the 70s to shoot a deer.

Memories. I wore that pamphlet out as a kid. Hunted there when I was a kid with my dad. Went to camp there and was a camp counselor, then worked with biologist in summer. Such great memories.

Very cool. I ran that $1,000 through the inflation calculator - equivalent to almost $6,300 in 2019 dollars

Licenses were cheaper than I thought they'd be for that time. But, then again, I was only 3 years old, so don't really remember.

Good grief,
I wish prices were still the same as back then. I could actually afford to take some of these animals.

I would gladly pay 1,000 for an axis.
$250 for whitetail buck Those days are long gone

When considering inflation, prices have surprisingly generally gone down or are in line. Very interesting.

Those prices sound really good but I had a decent job back
then . I was making $ 4 an hour so it was pretty expensive
for the time .

I get inflation and all. Im only 30 years old, so the dollar has been relatively the same my whole adult life.

lot less Axis in the state then vs. now.

I be the Y.O had the lions share of the exotic hunting market in 1972.....now hundreds of ranches in the region both high and low fenced are overrun with exotics.


I'm not complaining though.
