$2k lease
$75k truck
$20k utv
$10 bags of corn
Soon to be $5 fuel
$2 bullet

Those deer are expensive

I'm going to be a " hunter" this year , not paying those corn prices , and I'm going to hit it with a rock

The limit is up to the hunter. There are plenty still willing to pay to play.

Why does everyone keep putting in there $75k truck? A $75k truck isn’t a hunting expense. The $20k utv probably isn’t necessary either.

$2 bullet is a Bargin.


Fun isn’t free and you can’t take it with you. Deer hunting is also a lot cheaper than dating I can tell you that

Hunting is one of those things you can make as cheap or as expensive as you want.

Dating can get very expensive. Especially if you are already married.

Where is the limit? No one needs anyone to tell them where this limit should be set.

Growing up we had never heard of UTVs. That is what pickups were for.

I would go to the bar twice a week, out to eat, etc. spending roughly $200-$300/week.

$300 x 52 weeks is roughly $15k.

In 2007 my bar tab, just for me, was $5k

Can get some pretty good hunting in for those dollars


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

We used our trucks ( which were always 2wd ) until we got a 85’ Honda Fourtrax 250 we got for $2500. Had that thing for over 10 years.

I love my UTV but on a lot of places it isn’t a necessity. Some places it would be (my place is not full size truck friendly) but I could get by with much less than a Crew Cab Can Am if I had too

I see an air of arrogance here. Why post complaining about hunting prices, then state you you are going to be a "hunter" this year, insinuating that those who pay for a lease, utv, corn, etc are not really hunters? This smells like you just being an arrogant troll...and yeah, if you have a good lease for $2000, you need to share some info!

txt85, my buddy bought one and takes it to the lease. I'd never been in one before and let's just say it is a hell of a machine. We put 26 bags of feed in it (bed & back seat) and it didn't miss a beat. Damn quiet, smoot riding machine with fantastic leg room for us taller big boys and the seats are seriously comfy! My next machine will either be a Mule Pro or one of these Can Ams! The only thing negative I know is I was told by a service manager at a local place is they are a bit more difficult to work on when compared to a Mule and much more complex meaning a little more cost for upkeep and repairs.

Inflation.....you need to adapt/increase your wages especially now in this tight labor market. It won't be this way long.

100% recommend the can am. Great machine.

They have pretty much replaced the older “ranch trucks” and Jeep’s we used back in the day.

I'm floored -- someone else that likes a Defender. Usually all we get a Mule fan boys in here, but you were spot on. I've towed easily over 3500 lbs with my Defender and the only problem I've had with it is replacing a relay and a battery (same issue) as well as resliming tires

Mules are great machines, but they cannot do the things a Defender will do. They are solid machines, I just needed more than what a FTX Pro would offer
