    Costco is $3.45/gal, so ~21 gal afternoon top off was $72.96. Round trip to today's spot was 54 miles. At 15 mpg that's 3.6 gallons, so today's single GWT gas cost was $12.42. If I weigh the breasts, I'd bet they will cost out to north of $50/lb. Still, I had an enjoyable time with great memories as opposed to where ever the other $60.54 of today's fill up went.

    The first time me and a buddy of mine went to hunt sage grouse we spent money food, gas, two new tires (because lava rock and Nevada in general is hard on tires), hunting license, shells etc. After we got home we calculated the cost of everything per pound of meat we got from our sage hens. $600/pound was about what we came up with.

    I learned really quick to NEVER try to add up the cost of going in relation to the amount of meat you get. If I wanted to do that, I'll go buy beef in the store.

    Hunt for the enjoyment of it, not for the "cheap meat" because it ain't cheap.
