I am probably starting to late and am to poor to ever get it done but I start my first steps this year getting to hunt South Dakota. I hope I get the chance to see the full plumage of every species on this journey. I have a dream of a full colored drake shoveler and cinnamon teal on the wall some day.
Get a job that includes travel. I haven hunted or fished in 16 new states and 5 different countries since 2006. I crossed many of them off on work trips. Provides opportunity and cuts cost; i.e. no plane tickets. Unfortunately my current job limits travel, but on the other hand I am home with the wifey more so she is happier to support my goal.
The other challenge is there are not a lot of folks that have the means and interest in putting in the effort to do such things.
