Not to hijack this thread, but to put some real numbers in what it takes to make us not do the thing we love. I have a cabin in Colorado that I spend every June & July at. Last year a week before my wife and I were
to go, a woman called and said she wanted to rent it for 4 months starting June first. That's $16,000 for me and I could really use the money. I said yes, and we did not go last summer. Two days ago she called and
said she wanted to rent it again for 4 months starting June 1st. I thought about it and thought about all the memories that I am not making with my wife and friends, so I said No. We are going this year.
So, in real life, $16,000 bought me off for one year, however life is to short and memories to precious not go that second year.

Is there an amount that she could have bought you off for another year? Say $35,000 this year instead of the $16,000...

For me, I know that there is a number but I will be damned if I can figure out what it is. There is too much emotional attachment to hunting to put a monetary value on it.

Simple it is a number that allows you to hunt as much as you want with out monetary restrictions going forward and for ever.


Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

Pay me a $100 grand. I'll still show up to the ranch and be the the camp cook and chief bottle washer, help dress deer, hogs etc in return for some meat from each animal.

Thatís interesting. We have a cabin in MT we spend 4-6 weeks at every summer also. Like you, I might be able to skip a year for the price of a good sheep hunt but, like you, probably couldnít skip any more than that. Unless it were enough to buy a better cabin. smile

Nope, have to steer clear of it altogether. Hanging out at the ranch is not allowed

For one year...it would have to be enough where the following year I could knock out some of my dream hunts, desert bighorn Mexico, elephant, leopard, and Kodiak bear.

So 250k would take care of it and cover some more.

I went a year without hunting.
My father and I dove hunted (for what I found out later was our last time) in mid-September. He passed away in early December. For the next year I didn't go hunting as my sister and I cleaned up all of the things left behind and got my mom settled in a new place.
What's kind of strange, I didn't miss the hunting, I just missed the times with my dad.

Cool thread, very interesting read...
The high price of leasing almost kept me from hunting...
Fortunately had place were it didnt cost me anything & a WMA opened up 4 the public ta hunt...
That's a Blessing, most low-income workers cant afford leasing, nor have a place ta hunt, tis why...

"Am a proud supporter of WMA's...

Last lease was $200.00 per gun year round... Twas a family lease, way we did things in Minnesota, family & friends getting ta tagether 4 chance ta put some food on d grill & in d freezer... We didnt have lease thar, land owners gave permission... Leasing was new ta me when hit texas , every one was doing it... Only reason got on lease twas the 24-7-365 affordable hog hunt, less than a buck a day, me slinger at night with flash light off, reason they started calling me caveman at work, every one thought i twas muyloco ... Now it big Buck$ just look at the popular NV & Thermal hunts on this forum & youtube...
Started seeing others , that hunted with, starting ta go to neighboring states, due ta high cost of leasing, people getting out bidded, way b4 got on texasHF... & its changing here also, all about the Big Buck$... Thar b an old saying,
Ya CANT eat the horns, confused2 proubly by someone who majored in English, rofl i got D- in grammar, deer shed thar so called (horns) , that's a differant topic...

As pappy once said :
" Thar b three types of hunters, tis like in d old west, got the ranchers,
cowboys & then d ones in between... "


Ya my post ain't worth 2cents just another cheap post...

back Thinken scratch it would depend apone ones income...

Dis forum not like fb, ya dont have ta like me posts,
rofl tis tough being at top of d ignorance list...

How much for the Pope to drop Catholicism for a year or if he was alive for Billy Graham to drop Christianity for a year? That much

Assuming shooting competitions were still allowed, 8-10 grand. If no competitions, considerably more. I love to hunt, but i am more of a competitor, so i would need a clarification haha

To me it probably wouldn't take near as much as the numbers others are throwing around. Now if someone was offering a million bucks sure I aint gonna turn them down, but I'd probably not hunt for a calendar year for 10k, shoot I might do it for 5k. Its one season, not eternity.

Yeah I donít think some are grasping that last sentence for some reason.

Itís like if someone said you would get an extra $100,000 at the end of the year if you give up $10,000 for this year only. Itís a no brainer if the money is right. Because more money = more time = more hunting than ever.

I am going to have to internet lawyer that question then, cause the question says no hunting, then the clarification is basically you have to sit on your couch for a year. Most target archery and firearm sports have zero to do with hunting.

That is a stupid question for the following reasons:

1. Nobody would pay anybody any significant amount of money just to NOT hunt
2. If they said they would, I would not trust that after a year of hunting that they would pay
3. There is no amount of money that anybody could pay me to do as I please with my spare time

ďThis means no hunting, shooting, plinking, archery, animal photography, guiding, etc. for a full calendar year.Ē


Internet lawyer away the terms were clearly stated. No loopholes.
