On average do you spend for a drive down on Friday after work and return Sunday trip to the lease?

Assuming you already have all your hard gear like clothes, guns, etc



Groceries
Drinks
Fuel
Eating out
Animal feed

How much?

Cheaper than all the off season trips we make that include bulk feed, blind repairs, camp repairs and all around "stuff" repairs / upkeep. It's plug and play this weekend.

At least. When you include the animal feed that was on the OPs list some trips can be $200+ on corn alone. But then that isn't every week.
We do not eat out but we eat good and feed 6-8 people well.
Fuel in the lesser expense of about $50
And my brother (his ranch) can always count on a nice bottle of bourbon for the generous ranch owner.

How much?

Usually just the gas plus the groceries we haul from home.

A friend asked to tag along this weekend. I have a bunch of ranch work to do and was towing a trailer of fencing materials. He offered to drive, tow the trailer, help with the work, and bring the steaks. So, my cost this weekend will be minimal. On an ordinary ranch weekend,must gas and groceries, so maybe $200.

It varies with the group I go with. If with the family, I'm scared to add it up. If I'm taking somebody to hunt they usually by foot the bill.


Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

For a hunting trip (no corn) - $120ish with a little more than half of that going to gas.

If I'm filling the feeder - $200ish
