Default Ok, this is a bit crazy....

I know a guy here in Va that killed a nice 194" buck last bow seasoon in IL. Ok, so what's so crazy you ask??? He paid $9,000 to kill this deer!!! 9 G's on a freakin deer???!!!! Damn Im poor!! Even if I had $9,000 I would not spend it on one deer, yeh a 194" is great, but if I gotta pay for it, I don't want it, where is the economy going again?? I thought someone said it was bad?? huh, guess not for some.. sooo....who would pay it if they had it? who would not??

I wouldn't pay that much, but if somebody has it and wants to spend it for that buck, more power to them.

I'm not quite so crazy but I am paying about $2K for the whole season in Illinois this year, including licenses. I have no guarantees except I will have fun! Deer hunting is the only vice I have and I intend to feed the habit!

if that's how someone wants to spend their money then go ahead, I wouldn't, but to each his own. I think it is crazy to spend that much for one deer. I pay less than 2 g's for my land and I kill more than one deer, granted it won't be 194" deer but ......

Nine grand is a bargain for a 194" compared to many places. I've heard of people paying 20 grand for a 190" plus buck. Would I pay that much if I were loaded? No, but I guarantee I would have a sweet piece of property where I could possibly grow a few of my ownthat size. I'm not going to knock someone for doing it. If you have the money, do what you want with it.

If I was filthy rich I would as long as it was a fair chase hunt,no fenced in deer for me.
