I have more money now than I can spend so what would I do if I had more?

Nope, first sentence states it is not allowed


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.



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.

hunt∑ing
/ˈhən(t)iNG/
noun
1.
the activity of hunting wild animals or game, especially for food or sport.



Target shooting is not remotely hunting. Sorry, the dictionary has spoken and you don't get to redefine terms. Your question is officially lame

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.



No where near the same IMO. I am very content with the hunting I do now and the time I have with my kids, father and friends can't be replaced or bought.

Again, no one is asked to give up their life for a year. The hypothetical doesnít say you canít spend time with your kids, father, and friends. My price was 500K, for example. Spend all the time you want with them other ways for a year, take the $$$ at the end of the year, and then spend five to tenfold MORE time with them over the entire rest of your life hunting, fishing, traveling, or just hanging out with them in any way you choose. Money quite literally buys more time to spend with the ones you love doing the things you want. Your memory jar would be a heckuva lot bigger.

Of course, it doesnít work if the amount is not large enough. But if the price is right, itís a no-brainer in every scenario except one: if you had only a short time to live.

Itís a silly hypothetical, but it does exercise the mind.

It is a silly hypothetical but it is an interesting exercise to evaluate the importance of the outdoors for different people cheers

At different points in my life the answer would be different. Right now and at the ages my kids are at, it would take a lot for me to give up those experiences with them. While I agree it wouldnít stop me from spending time with them, the outdoors and hunting is a big part of many life lessons Iím working with them on. Ask me again in 3-6 years and my answer would be different. Ask again in 10-20 years and even more so.

If it were give up hunting for the rest of my life I would feel very different.

Im patient, its not like if I give up hunting this year it wont be there next. I have actually proposed the idea of giving the ranch a year off periodically feeding etc. the same as always and giving it a year with no pressure and no hunting, I think it would be good to give the deer a break everything would be a little more mature when we get back, and we would probably have a stronger drive and more respect for it.

Unlike others on this post I haven't made all the money I want or could spend... not even remotely close

At this point, I think $250,000 would do it for one year. The next season is never guaranteed, but as I get older the chances of that next season statistically get smaller. Consequently, the price for me to give up that one year would get higher. When I was younger I probably would have done it for less money and I hope to reach an age where nothing would be enough.

With all the kid stuff we have going on, it wonít take much if anything at all. When the kids were younger, they didnít have as much going on and it was easy to go out with them. Now that theyíre in various year long sports and school activities weíre busy almost every weekend. At this point, weíre lucky if we can get to the lease 3 or 4 times a season. Heck, we have a beach house that we were supposed to spend the summers at. Worked great the first year. Now weíre lucky of we get there for a week or two a year.


Thanks,
Rich

I didn't hunt at all last year and somehow I survived, so I guess the answer is zero.

I have enough "stuff" that I also enjoy doing so I would take as much as I could get, And get busy with other "hobbies".
