Default How much.

How Much do you think you've spent in your lifetime on hunting equipment/clothing/accessories. Anything hunting related.

Ryan.

I would not be able to even take a rough stab at it. If you you include hunting lease, deer processing, gas, food, and then eqiupment. I would say between $1000 and $1500 a year. I hope this year is on the low end.

My greatest fear is dying....and my wife selling all my hunting gear for what she thinks I have in it.

So far, I have about $120 into it and I just got my hunting license a few weeks ago. I can see the price going up as I am just breaking the surface.

Oh well. Gotta have something to pass the winter time blues.

Well I just started hunting 2 years ago and so far I have close to $600 into the sport. The license just went up for NY and to hunt this year I have to spend around $100 so the sport is going to get more and more expensive. But I am loving it

wow. I started bowhunting in 1968. I can't even begin to put a number on it. I would have to add all of the money I spent on getting my son's outfitted also. It would be a big number. I would certianly be on the front page of the newspaper if my wife ever found out how much. Probably on all of the who done it crime shows too. I do know it has been and will continue to be worth every penny.

I have been buying all of my own gear myself since 2003(first bow i bought w/out help etc.) and there is no telling to be honest. I bought that bow which was a hoyt ultra-mag which I spent 6-7 hundred on which was every last field earned dollar i had. Had enough bows since then to last most people a lifetime (just b/c i like them) so I couldnt even begin to start. TOOOOO much
