Re: Deer recovery kit
I'd love to get paid to do this, but it costs our group about $1000-$1500 a year in corn, batteries, feeders, cameras, etc. Still, on a per-person basis it's maybe $200 a head for exclusive rights to bowhunt about 800 acres. In this day and age, that's a cheap 'lease.'
The neighborhood does take up a collection to help defer some corn costs. It helps, but does not come close to covering our costs.
We do it because we want to help the community, fill our freezers, feed the hungry, and help the deer. It's a multi-way win.
