Fly in would be nice....but, the costs incurred for one trip would keep me going for the whole season ...(just about) ;)

I'm more a basic hunter....compass, no GPS....my guns, last main purchase 18-20 years ago (outside of buying a rifle for my son)....old truck with old camper parked at side of house used for hunting and fishing ....got my first piece of camo (a jacket) last year...will finally have to buy new boots this year (after 5-6 years), but they will be cheap ones.....

I have hunted and shot since I was 8....taught by my Dad and a trapper uncle...I will be turning 47 this summer....never have spent more that $750.00 on a main hunting trip (10-14 days)....cinsider yourself lucky Danny, and rich, to be able to spend that kind of money a year on a hobby!

But i got one planned for the year i turn 18. going deep interior, bust the bank but will be well worth it, u can hunt goat, sheep, grizzly, moose($2500 each way! >:( :o )

7mm weatherby mag/2.5 by 9 leupold
Swarovski spotting skope
Zeiss binoculars 9 by 35
sleeping bag
2 pairs of gortex boots
Rain/snow/normal camo
