The biggest effect will be that I won't drive the Jeep unless I need the 4WD and I'll use the 40mpg car instead.

10 mile drive to my spot(s), so it will not affect it at all. Thank God.

won't affect my hunting at all, you got to have your priorities ,if you go hunting you can come home with meat to eat so that eliminates the need for groceries

I've already got close to $4,000 invested in the leases and clubs so a little gas won't matter a lot.

The price of gas will not effect my hunting in fact I'm going to do more hunting local and up north this year.
As of the end this month August 31st I'm going to retire from where I work , just in time for the hunting season.
Talk about good timing .... huh .

I have only a six hour drive each way! How will it effect me? Not good! But I will still go every chance I get.

Hey Doc, this won't effect my hunting at all. It will effect my wallet though. I workedOT today to help out. As I get older I feel like hunting more not less.

I will still hunt as much, but my extra scouting trips will be cut out. I hunt behind my house here in Texas, but my Oklahoma place is 9 hours away. I am really debating right now about going up Labor day weekend. I would like to see my place before muzzleloader season in October, BUT...$$$
