How Much do you spend on Hunting per year
I am talking (new) Equipment each year-arrows/ammo, Lease Fees, Hunting Property mortages in excess of Homestead that you bought for hunting, outfitter, travel, License fees, protein/supplement feed for non doemstic animals, feeders..SECURITY- if you pay someone to watch your land, Trophy fees and mounts
Not talking about a FOR PROFIT enterprise..just you/family/frends
The whole shebang...
What do you expend to play in the woods..gun..bow...
and I know $$ are personal..not looking to ID who (unless you want to)
I'm curious .....I see some big time hunts on here

$60 license and $2 ammo.

I am at about 2K a year logging/transportation DIY Hunts
I am looking at some outfitters services as I am getting older and want to hunt other animals I have no experience with but that would not be a recurring expense.
I would buy some HUNTING Only property that would run 25K a year when I get the kids on their own...thats where I'm headed

I spend about 300-500 a year on hunting before tags...depending on what I need. My tags run around 200 a year, give or take. This year they will be a tad higher as I am going to get 5 doe and an any sex for bow season. Luckily the 2nd - 5th tag will only be like 12 dollars each.

I put 5k because this year I will have spent that, as I bought a new bow, rifle, and am going out of state. Plus the local stuff.
On an average though, it is probably half that. I'd say the biggest expense here at home is driving. When I hunt deer I have to drive an average of 45 miles each way. And I hunt ALOT. Then there is the driving between locations during the day. Thats why I bought the 4 banger s-10 for work and hunting. Much cheaper, but still alot of $$.

lic is $68 for me....i've never added up the gas to get to the ranch and back and corn for feeders and stuff....
if i had to guess, maybe $1000 or a little more per season...
we do our own processing

Even if you are talking all hunting its still probably under 5k. Duck hunting seems to be much more expensive than deer hunting though?

July 9th, 2010, 11:01 AM
Maybe 1500 this year and thats only because i bought a bow.
July 9th, 2010, 11:03 AM
When all is said and done this year I will have spent around $7000 give or take a few.
July 9th, 2010, 11:32 AM
when the year is said and done, i will prob have close to 1000 in it with bow string, and arrows, broad heads, minerals, anti-scent stuff etc.
July 9th, 2010, 11:35 AM
Around 2-3 grand. About half or more is spent for one week in the mountains chasing elk.
I want to know how its possible to spend 50+.

My yearly license for all hunting and fishing (all tags included exc. duck/trout stamps) runs $35.50. I only hunt DYI and on public land so there's only a $20 permit fee for the military land I hunt and an additional $20 for special WMA permit hunts. My hunting areas are all within an hours drive of my house, so there's no lodging expenses either unless I camp w/ some friends. A new bow this year, a dozen arrows, accessories, new camo (Lost about 40# so far); I'd say roughly $1500 this year total. Last year it was only licenses and fees and broadheads. Less than $150!

with property taxes, non res and res tags, equipment, vehicle (truck and boat for exclusive hunting use), vehicle licensing, travel and everything that comes up along the way it would be in the 5000-8000 range

All my hunts are DIY, and I still manage to spend between 2k-4k per year. It's all the little extras that i waste my money on.

Never think of hunting as spending.
If it looks like crap, smells like crap, tastes like crap, lies like crap; it’s more than likely a politician from Illinois.

I checked 5000, but it may be inaccurate...
Truth is I just really try not to keep track of it, I totalled one year up about 3 years ago and I thought I was going to have to get on anti-depressants... promised I never would do it again.
