Between golf and hunting seems that I enjoy costlier recreations. Other than gambling/drinking, what are your most expensive vices? Conservatively I probably spend about $3-4K per deer season and another $3-5K annually for my golf fix. That said, can't say I'd ever stop doing either and taking an extra nice vacation or something like that.. What about you all?

I don't but my best friend does.

I've been fishing offshore for more than a decade, both my own boat and friend's boats. I'm pretty familiar with what it takes.

I do not want to add up my hunting bills....land I own with all that goes with hunting it, lease for Mule Deer in West Texas, and going to Kansas to hunt. I really don't want to even start to add that up.

Take up bass fishing. I've spent enough in the last 30 years to go to the Yukon at least 5 times. rifle

And that's just entry level, get into Big Game Fishing and you can drop multi million dollars for the boat, then incur 7 figure annual costs employing a crew and campaigning in the billfish circuit. The only thing that costs more is yacht racing.

Not too bad for me, one major hunt each year to Colorado is about it, somne golf thrown in here and there.

I guess it depends a lot on each fellas POV, I golf when I can and especially if a round is on sale like at Ideal golf, no way in hell I'd pay what they want here for a membership. I don't need $2000 golf clubs, because I cant golf at a 2k level LOL

Hunting no.1, just got a bay boat so fishing is a close runner up. Don't have time or any other hobbies

But hey, fun ain't free. It's money well spent imo
