/shrug its true though. A CWMU tag isnt like the cost of a house, its the cost of a car.

The more likely scenario is a an elderly gentleman who is in his 60s and can either choose to buy a new truck, or drive his existing truck and buy a moose tag. If hunting is more important, he'll go with the moose tag.

I'm not saying 20'somethings should be choosing hunting over other life necessaries, but *IF* hunting is something important to a person, they can live frugally, save and work towards buying that tag over spending money on multiple misc trips like people doing disneyland trips, hawaii trips etc etc.

I think most of us who haven't bought a CWMU or banquet tag moose tag, have probably blown way more money than it would cost on other misc frivolous things in our lives.

So Dallan, when are you going to buy that moose tag?

I agree that people will always find a way to do the things that are important to them - regardless of the cost.

You are right. Transportation for years typically overcomes hunting. Medical expenses or things for children typically outweigh hunting.

With toys, yes it boils down to "side by side for years or one hunt".

I think you can make things happen, but lets not pretend everyone on here truly has the means to budget a CWMU tag. Some already are living frugal as you alluded too. Some haven't done Disney, or Hawaii, or anything even close.

Nah I'm going to draw that thing. I'm waiting for some CWMU to start selling Mt Goat tags. Whats the highest elevation CWMU in UTah? LOL...

Yep. And also priorities change. There was a time I would have never imagined not hunting... now I find I miss Dove openers... I havent hunted Pheasants in 20 years. Still hunt buck deer as often as I can, but maybe the time will come I start missing those from time to time.

Fully guided moose hunts can be had for less than $10,000. Even a few combination hunts for moose and goats but adding that second animal starts to add up.

This year I might miss hunting deer in Utah for the first time since I was 16, but I still might get a day or two in. My hunting partner who is a resident has some health problems that are getting taken care or and he is planning on turning his Manti buck tag back in. He just has to wait until next week to get his doctors excuse to mail it in.

But I'll still have my Colorado ML tag and perhaps a elk and bear tag.
