I got to thinking about last years deer hunting, and put a pencil to it, and this is what I came up with.
My share of lease $250.00
Gas to and from lease (8 trips) $128.00
Misc expense (Food, T-paper, pop, ice, ect) $185.00
Ammo and Arrow cost $53.00
Processing fee (5 deer) $350.00
New Scope ( absolute necessity if you see Mrs. WBB) $500.00
Dr. Bill after turning ATV over on top of myself $360.00
Total was $1826.00 without figuring anything in for cost of weapons or clothing.
My meat yield was 198 lbs of eatable meat.
Thats $9.22 per pound.
Can anyone tell me why I'm so anxious to get back out there next week-end, and do it again ?
