How to pull off an out-of-state backpack hunt on a budget - posted 1 month ago

Normally, I don’t leave any comments. I think that the estimates for the cost to go hunting are fair and close. However, there is no mention of one of the main reasons most sportsman even are afield. If you haven’t already figured it out by now, I am referring to the meat care, processing, and potentially even taxidermist costs. I strongly believe these have to be accounted for in the budget. As mentioned in the article with food costs, this can also vary if the plan is to process and package the meat yourself versus taking it to the processor. The proper equipment will need to be purchased and/or readily available within a reasonable amount of time for safe transportation of the meat to the processor and home or home to self-process where some supplies and equipment will need to be waiting. Assuming you are not with a large party for multiple days and eat the whole elk while at camp.
