What do you hunt? And how much do you typically pay to hunt?
I bought my rifle for no particular purpose which is why I chose a .308, I figured it could take any game I would encounter, but is relatively affordable for target shooting.
That said, I'm living in central Texas, so there is plenty of land to be hunted on around here. Well, tonight I began looking into the costs for hunting various places, and GOT DAMN...
Hunting on any reasonably well-known ranch seemingly costs a minimum of $2000 for a day or two. And if you are fortunate enough to land a trophy buck you're looking (at some places) at upwards of $10K.
I understand paying to shoot guns and harvest game from someone's land, but good lord.
Am I just looking at the wrong places? I am completely ignorant to hunting culture and all that goes with it (other than plastering Browning stickers all over your truck).
If you hunt, please learn me somethin'
