    Default One expensive hobby

    Good lord when I break it down archery/hunting is one expensive hobby for the up-front costs. Still buying stuff for this new bow and I'm still not done yet! So far I have got new strings and ld string, arrows and vanes, arrow holder for the LD, sight (sold the other to offset some cost), new nocks, sling.

    Mind you this bow came complete ... I'm just goofy and have to have it my way. Plans to get an Apache Stab, Bohning Chameleon quiver and the new Carbon STS yet. In the end it is all worth it.

    Just gotta wait for the new mods to arrive and I'll be all set to get back to shooting again. I should have my arrows cut and fletched by then.

    Most adult hobbys are $$pendy or we wouldn't have them. I'd hate to figure out how much the wife & I have invested in archery. My Elk hunt set us back $1800 and that's with a resident tag & DIY. However, my other hobby is way more $$$$$$.
    Your looking at $2400 per car here to be competetive. Then like archery a ton of expensive support equipment is required.

    got a nephew into that, moved on to remote airplanes had to laugh when he crashed one uh i mean every one, a little worried now he bought a real one, one of those ultralights, i think he has too much money i think he needs to get married. that will take care of his money problems

    a couple of years ago i decided to start brewing my own beer instead of investing in ice fishing equipment, i think i made the right choice

    My last hobby was/is designer vinyl toys & art ... probably have close a grand worth of stuff in my room.



    That's not all of it, I have a stash of prints that I haven't displayed yet.
