Couple years ago at the Iowa Army Ammunition plant a guy was pulling out a truck that was stuck. The chain broke. Flew through the back window of the truck and struck the guy in the head. He died a week or two later. Very unfortunate accident. Had a wife and 2 young children.
From what I hear thats what happened to this guy. Two straps with a clevis. one broke and the clevis came through the back window and killed him. Bad deal. Lets learn from his mistake.HdnpowrzParticipantFebruary 5, 2011 at 1:26 amPost count: 454HdnpowrzParticipantJanuary 29, 2011 at 7:24 pmPost count: 454HdnpowrzParticipantJanuary 29, 2011 at 7:19 pmPost count: 454HdnpowrzParticipantJanuary 28, 2011 at 10:40 pmPost count: 454HdnpowrzParticipantJanuary 24, 2011 at 4:43 pmPost count: 454HdnpowrzParticipantJanuary 24, 2011 at 2:38 amPost count: 454HdnpowrzParticipantJanuary 24, 2011 at 2:36 amPost count: 454HdnpowrzParticipantJanuary 19, 2011 at 11:09 pmPost count: 454HdnpowrzParticipantJanuary 13, 2011 at 1:57 amPost count: 454HdnpowrzParticipantJanuary 10, 2011 at 12:07 amPost count: 454HdnpowrzParticipantJanuary 9, 2011 at 9:34 pmPost count: 454::

I want to know how it is cheaper to go to the store then shoot a deer and process it myself? Please explain…
You have to figure in the price of your gun and ammo, camoflauge, tags and license, fuel to drive to the hunting area, cover scents, calls, boots, time spent hunting, knives, cost of processing materials, etc…………for most of us that adds up to be a expensive deer.
If you walk out your back door and shoot one with a borrowed gun then it can be done pretty cheap. Most people don’t do that.
I enjoy hunting anything but love hunting deer. I am lucky my camo was cheap or free as I served our great nation and got great deals on camo or got it free. I have a hunting license anyway for small game so that covers that. Most outdoorsman if not all have good boots anyway. Most shotgun hunters don’t use cover scents and if they do…. call me. I’lll take you on a very cheap guided hunt of good ole Iowa public land where you can kill a deer without that crap cover scent.. I love my gun and bought it for overall hunting and it only cost 4 bucks for 5 slugs. My time spent hunting is priceless to me so I don’t count that. I own plenty of pairs of boots as I work outside for a living. Process my own game (which is easy and takes very little time). As an outdoorsman I own lots of knives that I have gotten as gifts that I sharpen myself. For a 27 dollar tag ( by the way all antlerless tags after the first one are only 13 bucks no matter what season it is) that is a pretty good investment to me as it is prolly a good investment for all meat hunters.
I hear what you are saying… but, I use the same shotgun for deer as I do waterfowl. I’ve had the same camo since I started deer/waterfowl hunting… Shotgun season camo isn’t essential anyway, even if your still hunting like I do. The initial shotgun cost is quite a bit but by the time you break this down over every year then it gets cheaper every year. Plus you got to put some of the expense towards entertainment. I have had one deer in the freezer every year since I started hunting if I didn’t shoot one I got one given to me. Now with four in our family us three boys are putting away some food. I put two deer in the freezer this year. We don’t buy much red meat at our house.
The whole “It’s cheaper to go to the store?” I don’t buy it!
To each their own…
