With my income right now, I could probably swing $1,000-1,500 with some help from my parents.

I assume this is door to door. Travel, license, lodging, fees, etc. I would be willing to spend more to hunt moose than hogs.

Definitely depends on the game, and how much of a pain it would be to haul it out by myself!

When I was a young man, I use to go on hunting trips after the sun went down, and spent a lot of money chasing. Unfortunately I bagged something, and am still paying for it.

That is a fairly broad question. What type of game? What type of hunt? This makes a great deal of difference in perceived value.

As usual, Beekeeper is right on point. Are we discussing an annual budget, a trip of a lifetime, or perhaps a wish list? I might be willing to spent a fortune, but not have the where with all.

Sayfu,
The only thing I could think of that you may have bagged and are still paying for it is a wife haha.

All good points. We thought about how much it can vary, and decided to keep it broad. In other words, I wasn't necessarily thinking about what the max would be for your ultimate, "once-in-a-lifetime" (but you could think about it that way). But yeah, definitely door-to-door, PAShooter.

What your ultimate, dream hunt would be is something I'd also love to hear about. I know it's been covered--and I saw the post on memorable hunts, which is great--but perhaps another day for that one.

Thanks, by the way, for voting.

The only hunt I could see paying for would be a Yukon Moose or Mountain Caribou hunt with Jim Shockey.

For driven shooting in the UK for pheasants and partridge I have spent about $1500-$2000 a day. The other expense were part of a business trip.

Should I win the lottery I would splurge on a 3-day driven grouse shoot in Scotland, which probably would cost 5 times that.

I still have the shooting tweeds made for me at ridiculous expense on Saville Row. They don't allow camo in the UK at these affairs.

This would mean I'd have to buy a best London sidelock with game scene engraving...

well, I would guess-ta-mate-it at 5000.00. as a starting point for anything bigger then a deer, or even a guided bobcat/coyote deal??

I hear pigs are cheap in Texas?
