BEEN THERE!!! I bought a 111LRH and built myself an extremely nice fly rod in celebration of mine going away.

.....being a 3 time looser, I can't afford another loss. Thank goodness I found one who appreciates me for what I am and it's reciprocal.

She has her draft horses, her hunting dogs, her cats, all her Persian rugs a new ride every 2 years and property and I have my guns, motorcycles, a large pickup truck and a Caddy to drive (when my butt hurts).....

Great trade off's. Besides she told me a long time ago that I would be the one leaving and I could have a pillow, with no pillowcase of course......

I've got a whole room full of things that go bang so it's all good here.

She's not into guns at all other than her pistol she keeps in the drawer in the kitchen, ,loaded of course. I sometimes wonder if its for the anticipated intruder or for me if I get out of line....

and yes, she's reading this over my shoulder.......

I have nothing to hide, not that I could anyway. I'm a terrible liar......

I've casually mentioned a Barrett 50 with the Leupy and BORS. She made no comment.

Re: How Much Will You Spend On Hunting & Shooting Stuff In The Next 12 Months?

Let me see now:

CO NR ELK $550

Gasoline $1,200

Motel $ 900

Food $ 500

Oops - BPS etc $ 200

Comes to about $350 ....+ I'll have to dig up 2 fruit jars!
And I get to do all the dadgum work.
Execpt every 3 to 5 yrs one of my 2 sons gets to go so I get to double it.
Then it's payback....they do all the work.....even the cooking.

Probably more than I should. But, justification of expenses should be left to
congress. Being a conservative, I will cut corners where ever possible to get the job done. I will definately stay within my budget. Which is not much.

Which means, I plan on going spring bear hunting and spring turkey hunting
on the same trip, in state. If any big cats ( tag), coyotes or other nastys get in the way, oh well. SSS.

The rest of the year will include several fishing trips to some of our productive kokanee lakes. (land locked Atlantic salmon).

A split in Big game season between Archery and LDH Rifle.
Archery for deer and Ldh Rifle for Elk.

Keep your shots in the middle.

Probably not a whole lot more than I have already spent this year.

My budget is about 1/3 gone already. So with Spring Bear hunting and
Turkey hunting on the same trip, in state. (Long week end.)

Then some Club shoots.

A few Kokanee fishing trips. (Atlantic Salmon).

Archery Deer hunt in Sept., and an LDH hunt for Elk in October.

Some more club shoots til the snow flys.

$2000.00 more or less.


Keep them in the middle.

I have Deer and wild turkeys in the back yard Elk on the Golf Course cougars hung up in a fence down the street a Bear shot in back of the Tavern and Greasy tires from running over stupid Coyotes all in the middle of the second largest city in the State of Oregon, There aren't any animals in the woods though because they are all living under someones carport.
