“We’re sure you know that a day spent hunting beats a day in the office,” the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) says. “What you might not know, though, is that a day spent hunting in many cases is more affordable than a day spent on the golf course or at a major league ballgame.” I think we knew that. And that “in many cases” qualifier sticks out like a sore thumb. Does the price of 10-days of turkey hunting include gas, the gun, accommodation, ammo, camo eyeglass frames, a turkey call and the celebratory drinks? Equally, I don’t play golf or go to major league ballgames. But I do buy Boar’s Head Ovengold turkey, at about $12 a pound. So I could buy four pounds of sliced turkey for roughly the same price as 10 days hunting turkey. Huh. Anyway, I spend a more on shooting than I do on anything else I do for amusement. (Yes, even in Las Vegas.) I reckon my total annual outlay’s at the tippy top end of four figures. How much do you contribute to the gunconomy?
