Ok so earlier today the wife says... If you don't get a good buck this year maybe you should find another place.. I told her its not that easy and I know good bucks are there.. This is our fourth season... First year my brother got a nice 132 inch 10 point..5 year old..(per the taxidermist).. Also a spike and a doe... Second year 3 doe.. Third 2 doe.. This year so far my dad got an eight.... And we got plenty of pics if some good up and comers and 4-5 shooters for this year... So I was just thinking.. How long should a person give it a go??... For what we pay.. Location.. Cabin, water, elec... I don't think u could match it.. I'm content ... But I was just curious and maybe could give the wife a better answer

Tell her it's not about the killing,it's about the experience.

It's called hunting not killing...lol...jk.

It really depends on what type of animals you are after, lots of people spend thousands of dollars each year on trophy leases and don't kill a big buck. Some guys are happy spending 500 dollars and killing a doe or spike.

You got to pay to play the game....leasing is a lot cheaper than buying!

To me it's the time I spend hunting, being with nature, having fun with buddies, seeing the deer that I enjoyed just watching, harvesting when I can, you can't eat the horns, if I wanted a trophy I would spend the monies, but to me that isn't what it's all about.

If Cowboy fans thought like this, Jerry's house would be empty on Sunday!

Depends on what the lease is to you.

I love hanging out in camp just as much as I do hunting. My brother got on the lease with me this year and it is just that much more special now. I just hope I am down there when he connects on his buck.

Being able to get away from this crazy town and clear my head is just as good as shooting something. Heck I went down last weekend and only hunted once. I slept in a couple of mornings, went and sat in my brothers area a couple of times without a rifle and only a camera and got some good video.

But at the same time if you are also spending the money for a chance at a good buck and you arne't seeing any then you might want to start looking around until you find one that has everything you are looking for.

I have a small camper on the place right now and will be looking really hard after this season at upgrading to a larger camper so I can take my family with me and be comfortable.

Best of luck to ya.

Don't expect her to understand. They are incapable of seeing things the way we do.

As long as you enjoy your time out there, and most importantly the meat you harvest, then that's all that matters. It's a hobby, and a tradition. It's not all about trophies.

As long as yall can afford it of course.

I agree with most , I love to take big deer, have gone years between deer, but it is about so much more than than the deer.
