    Not a good idea to post this info where my wife might see it. I spend enough to feed the family.....and we eat well.

    I never count food, because i'd still be eating if I wasn't hunting.

    I spend a lot on hunts. I would say at least 10% a year of my gross wages but I dont mind one bit as long as I enjoy it and my wife doesnt find out!! haha

    She doesn't notice you're gone?

    I probably spend 3-5% of my net income on hunting, most of that expense is fuel.

    Wow some good responses. I have always thought it'd be wise to move to say east MT or somewhere in CO. Can find nice whitetails and all the western game! But for a while i'll be buying out of state. I plan on spending 6-10% or more depending on the year. And by the looks of it, that's not that crazy. A guy could do an outfitted Iowa hunt for a whitetail and probably 1 or 2 DIY hunts. That's insane!(god willing he has the time off)

    Here it's all about weighing costs of leases and what you want to do in terms of management. For years I was on a lease than ran $900 & with that your family got the following:

    -18k acres
    -6 deer (3 bucks, 3 does...or any combination as long as you didn't go over 3 bucks)
    -unlimited hogs (lots of them)
    -1 alligator tag
    -600ac cypress swamp to fish or duck hunt
    -12 100+ acre oxbow lakes to duck hunt/fish
    -14 miles of river frontage w/ private ramps 20 miles from closest public ramp
    -full use of lodges, conference hall, screened in pavilion w/ vented grills
    -walk-in cooler, skinning & processing facility
    -5 month long deer season, but year-round access
    -water/elect for private camper hook-up
    -private 500yd shooting range


    Then you'd probably spend another $900 on feed, seed, fertilizer & tractor fuel
