Back when I was a kid everybody knew that when hunting season came around that I was going to be gone from the job for two weeks, did'nt mater where we were at on the job. (did'nt mater what the wife said either, lol)
Over the years I tried to add up how much my lost wages were, collosal
Out of the 30+ years of hunting and the money that went into buying gear with the 16 moose under the belt I figured I lost about $30,000 on missed wages probably more, then add in the gas for the boat, the food, the things we buy each year that was nicer than the year before, the many pairs of hipboots, longjohns, coats, and the list goes on, lol
I could add in the rafts, and the air drops, man this list could go on forever, lol, did'nt even mention the guns or the cost of the boats.
Its all for the fun of it.
