Was just thinking about how much $$$ I spend in gas every year chasing deer. Have driven roughly 1600 miles this deer season at 15mpg = 107 gallons x $2.50 = $267.50
I keep telling the wife that deer hunting is cheap since I already own all the equipment :scared::rof2:

Hunting ain't the cheapest way to get food. I don't even wanna know what I spend each year.

600 miles to WI one way so that's 600 miles x 10=6000 miles plus a trip to video in Iowa so that's another 800 miles plus we'll say another 200 just driving to spots in KS so an even 7000 miles @ 19 mpg = 368 gallons x 2.50 per gallon =$921.00.

Just hope my wife don't read this.

If I added it up, I'd find a new "hobby"... just imagine if you put a nominal dollar amount on time spend hunting, driving etc. :eek::eek::eek:

Not sure, but it was quite a bit. It's nothing compared to what I spend fishing though. I'm spending money on gas going to the fishing hole and then spending money on gas for the boat. Why did I pick such expensive hobbies?? :D

If I was to make a conservative guess it would be around the $800-900 range

I have onstar and you can get a graph of your month-month mileage... kinda nice.

Always a big spike in the fall. :D
