depends on what you are hunting and what you think is reasonable. that being said brokenarrowoufitters hunts deer and turkeys in NE & KS. 1 bird in NE is about $950. i hunted there in may 2009 with friend and we got 4 birds. they have rights to big ranches with lots of game. saw hundreds of turkeys [mirriams] in 2 days
and these birds are lightly hunted. saw a lot of whitetails and mulies also but of course did not hunt them. the price is higher. close to 3 grand unless bow hunting then about 2 grand. bullseye outfitters's Russ Walker is a broker for these guys. there is a website for bullseye.
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
