    Eastmans customer feedback survey just got me in trouble! Warning to others....

    Just thought I would say thanks to the guys who put this survey together, I owe you one.

    The survey went to my wife's e-mail since she was the one who purchased my subscription for me. She starts rolling down the survey asking me questions and everything is rolling just fine, until you guessed it...........

    the money question!

    How much did you spend on hunting related items this season?
    When we got to the $1500-$2500, I couldn't hold a straight face and say yes, so she marks the $2500 or more and then starts in on me!!!!!!!!!

    So, any other guys get burned by this or only me?

    And I want one of you guys from Eastmans' to post up whose idea it was to put that question in there????
    I get in enough trouble on my own, don't need you guys helping me out....LOL

    Rule #1, never ask a fellow how much he spends on hunting!

    Well, we may all know the truth, but to admit it in front of my wife......we try not to put $$$ out there.

    I hunted 15 days of archery elk season in Colorado this year. NR tag, 2 scouting trips, 4 trips during season.
    Minimum 500 miles per trip, with one trip ending up about 1300 miles total all the way to the other side of the state, groceries, new hunting pack -Kifaru, new binos- Vortex 15x50, new tripod, new boots, new clothing, etc.......once I started thinking about it, I need to hunt more to make use of all this stuff!

    I couldnt tell you how much I spend. Well over the $2500 mark by the time you figure in gas, gear, tags in a few different states, random expenses etc.

    My above question and answer was an actual conversation I had with my wife on the subject. She is a great woman, so she let it go at that.

    I just tell my wife when I am lucky enough to harvest something, that she better appreciate the venison she is eating, because it is probably the highest dollar cut of meat out there.

    Isn't that the truth! Game meat is very expensive if you think of everything put into getting it!

    I drove out here to Wyoming from Jersey. I have a special buck and 4 doe tags plus 2 cow elk tags. I'm single and don't want to know what this is going to cost me by the time I get home November 7th

    Yea that conversation can burn a guy pretty bad... My wife works a ton of hours each week and so instead of getting a cleaning lady, we agreed that if I take care of cleaning our place, I can buy all the bonus points I want and also my tags for each fall. Then I just pick up a few extra hours at work to pay for the actual hunt. So far it is working!
