When you play all the little games throughout the west, you can really rack up a nice little bill. But, when you think about it, Game and Fish Departments are one Department I don't mind seeing my money go to.
Hunting is my only hobby its really the only thing I like to do besides spend time with my family, so I dont mind spenind some cash on PP's. Some guys I know spend $300+ bucks a month for memebership to a stupid golf course. These are the types of things I tell my wife when I'm spending our money on hunting.
One thing that everybody needs to remember is that if you are going to hunt out of state and want the points for next year you are going to have to play the game and fork over the bucks. At least in most of the states once you buy the required hunting license you can at leas head up and do some small game hunting there so it isn't a total wash.
Hunting is not usually a pursuit where instant gratification abounds. It takes a lot of time, practice, resources and patience to be a successful hunter. So when someone decides that an area they hunted only once without taking an animal is worthless and devoid of game, I don't quite understand it. These people usually jump from game management unit to game management unit; trying a new one every year.
Now don't get me wrong, there are people that just enjoy scouting and hunting...
