    I don't even know for sure! Probably 6-700. I have everything i need, but I splurge a bit and have wood brought up to camp. it saves time and is more quiet, since camp can have critters come by at any time. Fuel, propane, food and beverages for 8 days. I did buy a couple bottles of 100 dollar a bottle bourbon only to be opened when blood was on my hands. With 9 guys in camp, I got 2 drinks. They were the best tasting drinks I have had after getting the second elk off the mountain. I was whipped and anything probably would of tasted good!! I wish it was only 300 bucks though!

    How much do I spend on my Elk hunts. For me it is quite a bit more since I live across the country. I hunt Montana and try to go every year or whenever I draw my tags. Being a non resident it is expensive.
    Licenses and permits $1100.00.
    If I drive add another $1100 for diesel.
    If I fly add $690 for flight, $750 for truck rental $300 dollars for fuel while there.
    Food and items bought for the trip $500. Not including gear.
    Personally I like to drive but it is a long trip unless someone else goes with me. Its worth every penny and have been doing it since the late 80s.

    BleuBijou..... Thats hillarious that you have wood brought into camp to be quiet. I have lived up in McCall Idaho for years, and one thing I do often is firewood cut. Me and a friend go cut several weekends a year, for a day or two at a time, run saws 6-10 hours a day, and have deer and or elk in camp, or watching us cut more often than not. They are drawn to the sound like gnats to a flame,mthey dont run off, and if they do its not far.

    One thing they love to eat as a treat is the tasty greens that fall from the trees as they drop.
    I hunt because......

    If I go it alone from Ok to nm north or south it costs at least 1000. If its a quality tag then over 1200. It certainly can save a lot if you can get a partner but it is hard for me to get anyone around here to pay that much for a tag and only have 10 percent draw odds. With the rise in cost of everything you could easily spend 1500 or even 2000 so you really have to save wherever you can.

    That is very impressive. I wish I could decorate my house like that.

    hey everyone thanks for the information and offering up so much help. It is really cool of you guys. I am looking at my schedule this year and trying to determine what kind of time I will have considering that I am most likely going to draw one of Colorados top units this year.

    I know it is horrible! We used to do that! Setting up 3 big tents and getting everything set up just makes it feel that much easier to pay a buddy to bring up the wood. Saves a ton of time and work and one less thing to have to worry about. We still bring up the saws just in case weather buggers up the road and he can't get there!

Just interested in seeing how it compares for us to go on a hunt in the Midwest.
    A little known hot spot for big whiteys is SE MN. I grew up hunting down there and saw some giant deer. The closer to the Iowa border the better, but there's a ton of deer in that bluff country.
