    Hey UH I was just curious, how much did the 1995 Stone sheep hunt cost? Just wanted to get an idea of the price increase over the last 18 years. Not that I'll ever be able to afford it. Just curious.

Oh yea I forgot about the tongue lock. I have been doing the last lace under the tongue lock to keep it from shifting down and to the side. I ordered mine the same as my foot size and they were a perfect fit. In fact a medium weight sock and boot liner really feel good in this boot. I imagine you would get the same results with just one pair of heavy socks and no liner.
    I also like the fact that they are uninsulated as this is a boot I will where pretty much all of the early season hunts. Ankle support feels good as well and they come up high enough in the back so they don't irritate the achille area above the heel.

    Don't quote me, but I recall it was $13K total to the outfitter. It was like $9K for the hunt, and a $4K trophy fee. I got flown into another area for my first 6 point elk for another $1K.

    One thing I recommend to younger guys is to buy a house you can afford and pay it off. A 15 year loan is not that terribly much more than a 30 year loan. I got a fixer-upper on the river, remodeled it and landscaped it myself (sweat equity) and paid it off in 8 years. When you no longer have a house payment going out it totally frees up your lifestyle.

    Thanks The other is money invested well into an IRA your first 12 years of your career, will have more value than the money saved the final 30 years of your career.

    Work hard and knuckle down until through your mid thirties then you can begin to enjoy it.
