You know, I never took this questions very serious until recently. Over the past few years, I've seen this question start some real knock down and drag out debates (okay, arguments!) in online deer hunting forums. But I've been seeing more and more of them lately whenever someone asks if they should be shooting small bucks or not. And I mean some of these folks probably would be going toe to toe if they were in front of each other (or sucking up to one another...lol). But in my opinion, it's a ridiculous argument to say the least. Here why I think like this.
Okay, this is the first such list I've ever written. I got the idea from my good readers. Several of your Better Halfs emailed me and asked what should they get their deer hunters for Christmas. Some held me to a price range, some didn't. So I sit down and made a list of all the cool stuff a Deer Hunter could want for Christmas. Sadly, I had to narrow it down to just 10. Somehow a post title "2001 Gift Ideas For the Deer Hunter On Your Christmas List" seemed a bit long! Now all you have to do is email this list to your Spouse or Better Half or just print it out where they can find it.
With the rising cost of fuel these days, I can imagine there are a lot of deer hunters who will be looking for ways to cut their deer hunting cost. Maybe this isn't the year you buy that new rifle or bow. Perhaps that new set of Camouflage clothes will have to wait. Or maybe you're looking to get involved in deer hunting but it looks too expensive. I'm going to tell you that it doesn't have to be expensive and you can get started deer hunting for less than $1000 and even less than $500 if you pick your gear correctly.
