And the other question is, why cant we write it off on our taxes?
You can, as long as you classify it as a "hobby expense" and your total hobby expenses account for at least 10% of your adjusted gross income.



As for cost...
I figured this year's Elk cost me about $2.37/lb, including the cost of an unfilled cow tag. (that's cheaper than the lowest grade ground beef, around here)
But... there were also 4 hunters that came back empty-handed, and 1 non-hunter, with their own costs. And, if it had been a Deer, the cost per pound would have quadrupled, just for starters. -For Deer, the families (yes, multiple ) would have come along. Plus there's much less meat.
