Sometimes I really wonder if Hunting ever comes out profitable!

October 24th, 2006 at 06:47 am

My Dh being the deer hunter he is couldn't wait til Muzzleloader season was open so he could rush right down and hunt bambi! OK fine! I have handled this through the years because the deer meat has helped the budget. Well this year so fair DH has went twice . Once with bio-son and bio-son came back with 103.7 fever and off to the doctor we went! He missed two days of school and antibotics puffers and cough meds totaled 75.00
Also the alternater went out and that cost 300.00
So last weekend DH went by himself! Came back from camp no deer but two broke ribs!
So off to the doctor again, meds and doctor visits and missed work this week totals so far 400.00
Poor! DH! He can't win for losing this week!

    WELL! What a time of it the deer hunting has turned out to be - how'd he break his ribs???

    My DH likes to take a bottle of Irish Creme for his coffee. Liquor can only be purchased in liquor stores...So I stopped in last week to pick his up...and there were two guys in there each buying about $100 in liquor- having a discussion with the clerk, who had also purchased some for her husband...all were going 'hunting'.

    I dont know, but sending abunch of guys into the woods with guns and booze just doesnt sound too sensible to me....Every year at least one hunter shoots someone by accident....correlation?

    lol...DH has been hunting for as long as we've been back in Oregon (12 years) and the closest hes come to 'getting one' is a picture of him hand=feeding and ELK at the side of the road during DEER season!! lol (fine with me, I dont want to eat deer or elk)

    I don't look at it as helping out with the budget. It is the one time of year that DH really looks forward to and has a great time, whether he gets one or not. If he brings home a buck it is just a bonus to me.

    wow, i'm really sorry to hear about the car & rib problems Frown i'm in the same unprofitable hunting boat you are: DH hasn't gotten anything since i've known him. his dad has gotten 7 already, so DH might come back with meat next time Wink

    Wow. If it weren't for bad luck, you'd have no luck at all. My great uncle had the only consistent hunting technique. Every year he'd accidently hit one with the car. It wasn't profitable for him either. Frown

    It was a rough couple weeks to say the least! LOL But as luck would have it DH got tired of resting (them, There ribs) and started walking back in our woods to check on his feeders. As if the Lord sent him out pops a 6 point! DH raised his bow and poof! He got him! LOL
    So even though DH and Bio-Son normally goes to the camp to hunt and have man time DH was walking distance from the house no cost involued and poof! Meat!
    I couldn't help but laugh because DH was soooo sore after he pulled that Bow back that Bio-son had to help him clean the thing! Personally, I can not even look at Dead Bambi without crying so all ended well!
    Oh, we have a huge Custom striped Van I use for deliveries at my business That the alternater went out on. Thank Goodness it wasn't the yaris, Now that would have made me PO'ed for sure!
