Worst hunting related impusle buy?
How costly was your worst hunting impulse buy?
We all know the feeling, sitting on your computer or in a store and deciding you need something really bad really quickly. Before you know it your credit card bill is through the roof. Whats the worst thing you decided on the spur of the moment to buy and how much did it cost you? extra broadheads? new bow? PROPERTY TO HUNT ON?
I once went from never having thought of one to putting my card down on a 550$ night vision scope. I also buy broadheads every season when I clearly don't shoot enough deer to make it worth it. I'm gonna guess I got off easy though.

Had to have the Mathews DXT years ago.. IMO one of the worst bows I ever owned. Switched to Hoyt for 4 years and now I am back with my Creed (still own a few Hoyts too).
I was at the local shop buying a new rest and walked out with the DXT.. I know some guys love it but I sold that bow a month later.

Trades two older bows for one brand new one. That one turned out to have issues eating strings and couldn't get my old bows back. Traded that bow for the one of the bows I have now.
In the long cost me a bunch of

A Spott Hogg sight. I felt guilty all the way home from the shop....... until I put it on the bow and started shooting. You definitely get what you pay for!

Past 3 years I've bought a whole new rig with all new accessories. This year I did not as a don't think I can get more satisfied than with what I have (second time owning this bow) Saving money is nice!!
I'm sure I'll blow it though and buy something I don't need, just gotta find it first.....

A second pair of Alpha Burleys. Price was so good, I had to get them. My other ones are 5 years old and in incredible shape despite heavy heavy usage. Brought em home and was like W T F? But I didn't bring em back. One pair stays in my truck permanently...just in case. Other pair stays with hunting stuff. It's rediculous.

Full camo setup at cabelas for Black Friday. Didn't need it, and frankly I'm not a huge seclusion 3D fan but the price was hard to beat! Also picked up some rage hypodermics a few weeks ago that will likely stay in the package all season(I'm shooting exodus this year).

Almost forgot but my first bow was a total impulse buy too! Hoyt Trykon on year end clearance. After it was all setup it ended up over $800. Loved it at the time but I can't say I miss it.

26 acres, then 90 more shortly after. Had to sell the 26 to make it work. Now 61 acres next to me has gone for sale and its taking everything I've got to not make an offer. Lol. I keep this up ill never be able to retire.

Once I discovered I could buy guns off the internet and have them conveniently shipped to an FFL licensee on the route home from work, it's been a downhill spiral. Most recently a Ruger SR45 that was an impulse buy last week, and I already have two other perfectly capable .45 ACP pistols, and a 10 mm, and .357, and .44 mag., and . . .
For archery, I have enough arrows to load all of AT's quivers at least once over. And the last deer I shot was in 2009.

2011 F150. The paid off '05 dodge Dakota just wasn't big enough to drag those deer out. At least I keep telling my wife that every payment. She does ptrfer riding in the new truck though.
