It is all about the juggling!
If you juggle it right you get alot more hunting in for the year! Budget is also an issue,gas, food ,lodging,ammo,and then the biggest of them all,finding the time to go hunting !
That is the way to go start off small and grow slowly,nothing wrong with that! I have built my waterfowl equiptment up slowly,but I have slowed down my deer hunting purchases,trail cams,new guns,camo,treestands,basically I have more fun duck hunting and goose hunting than deer hunting,I have about 16 treestand,and I am going to sell some this year, my hunting buddies have all moved away or are to old to get up in the stands now,so I might as well sell them,keep some,for bow hunting,accouple climbers,and accouple ladder stands I will keep,the rest are getting sold,the funds from that are going into other hunting stuff like decoys or camo or a boat! Every year we have a town wide yard sale and that is when it will be going,August just before the waterfowl season! Might not make a lot of money on them but it all helps! Building it up slowly!
