Sheesheeee don't even mention expenses.
First ya buy a rifle then upgrade it. . . Not quite there yet . . . get another rifle as a donor and go the custom route. . . then get to thinkin' "this ain't cutin' it" and go full custom on a very large wildcat. Then after two LRF upgrades have more gun than LRF.
Then ya gotta get a spot to shoot at least to 1200. Glad my 5 acres was upgradable. Then ya really wanna get a video set up to save time and knees checking hits down range but ya gotta an ATV to check target hits. So ya gotta get a video setup anyway. But the ATV w/tracks gets ya out after woofs in the deep snow. THen ya gotta up grade tent/sleeping bag, showshoes, backpacking stove and tons of Mountain house. The ya gotta get some pack goats to go where the ATV can't and on and on and on . . .
I'm lovin' it!!!! Then there's the chrono quandary. Did I mention spotter, wind meter, iPod & software and the little auto power outlet USB charger thingy? Oh yeah, there's the merino base layer, boot socks, boots, snow chaps . . .
