Probably whitetails taken on family land - provided you kill a lot and do your own processing.
Anything much outside of that is not going to work out cost-wise if you really consider all the costs (gas, time, processing, equipment, lease/land costs, etc.).
Alomost no one really just hunts for the meat.
Was a BLESSING
when WMA opened up just down the road. Did the leasing thing when first moved ta
NOT trying ta change things. Its what most were doing, just bout everything is leased. Tip me
hat ta those shared lease with.
Were i was born & raised hunting was different. As pappy say's : The price of a poormans food stamps was best bang for your buck.
Time spent with gamily & friends
with common goal ta put
& in the freezer.
games being played. Rich mans sport. Work too
damn hard for my money.
Best Bang for your buck is: Hunt the grosery stores for best deals.
Family, True Friends, that have land, & friendly neighbor, 2nd Best option. Public land, WMA
for those who not scared ta put in time & effort. WMA was closer than any lease was on, so gas was cheaper. Finding the hogs was easy part, work begain, getting em out. Used back pack, no gutting. Spent money on the food plots, corn, minneral blocks, & let the not enough deer
heard grow. It finaly went ta 4 deer county.
Yet still took my bow in hand & made a stand on WMA helpen with the hog problem, the other wild game.
Plenty of meat in freezer & for
low-income workers dont have ta be told how bad times are,
they live it.
