Default How much do you spend $$$

How much money do you guys spend on average per month on fishing / hunting? How many trips do you get out of this amount of money? The Warden asked me this the other day and the only logical answer I had for her was less than when I ran the bars and chased strange stuff...... She got the hint but didn't really like my answer.

Just curious as to what you guys drop on this stuff. If I just buy fuel, maybe 50 - 75 or so bucks a month, but if I go to Academy or Ebay it is not good.

Fuel... 60-100$
Lures... 20-40$
Snacks/drinks... 10-20$

The chance to get the hell outta the house..... PRICELESS!

I have figured it costs me $100 to go and fish Big Lake from Lafayette. Gas,beer, ice, food, tackle.

I don't usually think about that though as my wife and I have separate checking accounts. She would siht if she knew what I spent on outdoor entertainment, just like I would siht if I knew what she spent at.....

Depends on what time of the year.........
I have my own account I use for just fishing ,boat, baits etc...

I dont spend a lot of money on baits or hooks I get all in Bulk and most of that is real cheap

Gas during the summer with longer runs and more moving I spend up to $500 a month on gas if not more

Winter I still fish the same amount but spend less on gas becuase I dont go very far..
Last hitch off I fished 5 days on 16 gallons of fuel

Last year in 12months I adv about $435 a month on Fuel alone

None of you are even scratchin the surface...how about that boat note and the big arse truck to pull it? Those of us who lease properties for hunting....new dekes every year...shotgun shells, new guns, Mud boats, ATVs Oh, and camps???? Thank God i have a separate account that the boss can't see. I would be embarrassed (maybe divorced!) to disclose how much I really spend on hunting/fishing in a year. Most in here would be the same!

Truck and boat are both paid for. If you'd see em you'd know why. I don't have nice equipment... My parents are buying "us" a new/used bay boat tomorrow so my fuel consumption should go up. I don't spend much on drinks just grab a handful from fridge on the way out, and I don't run far in my little boat.

Just a trip to the lease is about 70bucks in fuel, not to mention the annual cost. Anything extra I would buy for hunting is pretty much not a necessity (other than ammo), since I have most of what I need already. Fishing is another story. Dont have a boat, so mostly do a lot of surf trips. Try to make a bid deal out of it with friends, so lots of food and drinks. Cost usually gets split up though.

Monthly hunting trips @ 150 bucks
Monthly fishing @ 50 if enough people go.
