If you check into it, you might find that it's not as costly as you might think. There are multiple animal packages out there for under 4 thousand "bucks". Make the decision to go and then make it happen. I have a piggy bank that I have put all my change into for years and every time I drop coins in, I say "Goin to Africa". July 2, 2013 my wife and I leave for South Africa. You too can do it. I'm just a poor retired school teacher.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
