Saw this on a social media site today. How much would someone have to pay you to keep you from Hunting for 1 year? This means no hunting, shooting, plinking, archery, animal photography, guiding, etc. for a full calendar year.



What says the THF?

Enough to live and hunt anything and everything I wanted anytime I wanted for the rest of my life plus about 10 mil on top of that.

Wouldn’t take much. I’m paying 50k a year for a ranch that I have only been to one time this year due to work and kids.

500K would probably take care of everything I wanted to do hunting-wise after the year was up. But if they would pay more I wouldn’t turn it down. smile

In the end you would do a helluva lot more hunting than you otherwise would. The most important thing money buys is time to do the things you want.

Only one guarantee in life and that is death. It comes at a time of its choosing, generally speaking. I wouldn’t bet a year of my life on an investment I might not be able to cash in on all the while robbing myself of time hunting with my family creating memories. A few extra bucks in the bank is nice....who wouldn’t take it? But....memories are more valuable in my opinion.

I’ll pass.......

I’ll bet I’m gonna live a year and longer against the opportunity to increase my hunting memories by a factor of 25x all day long.

Just enough to pay for whatever activities I would take up instead of hunting and related activities.

A new Skeeter and pay for me to fish wherever I wanted for a year.
I’d much rather fish El Salto, than fly anywhere in the world to go kill something.

This is my line of thinking.....I wouldn't say there wouldn't be an amount, but it would have to be very, very high. and even then i'm sure I would have regrets come December and I start seeing pictures of game taken


on the site where the original question was posted, a lot of guys were willing to give up hunting for a year for $5-10k

One year? And I can't shoot, guide, or anything? I think minimum $50,000.

I'd really have to think about it....I spend a lot of money each year on my land and hunting. I'd probably do it for an amount that would allow me to pay off one of my properties.

Lol its a pretty silly topic, you can want what you want all you want, but getting someone to pay you for it is a whole different story.

I could go a year without hunting as long as I could fish, but my 12 year old might have a different opinion

I don't think its a silly topic at all.


It is a gauge of how much hunting really means to you for you to give it up for a year. I started really thinking about it...it would take a significant dollar amount for me to give it up for even a year.



In my case, it would not only me giving it up but my kids as well. Gotta factor that into the price.

Not much. I didn't hunt at all last year due to my back problems. I'm probably finished up as far as deer hunting goes. Still trying to get in on a dove hunt for the fall.


After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says W T F
