I would say instead of $$$ you pay for them in time, effort and work.
So I guess that I need to clarify things also. I've been here awhile myself and although I don't post much I get on the forum very regularly. I read a lot on here and also apply alot. This site and Dan's DVD's have allowed me to take my hunting to the next level. When I read the post about the rich man and public I stated "you can't buy them on public". I assumed that the rich guys wall was a product of guided hunts. Nothing else. I my state it is illegal to guide on any public land. With that I do hunt some private land and lots of public. I just got finished getting my rear end kicked on public hunting thunder chickens today . Everything that I kill is paid for by sweat equity. My home state allows baiting on private. I chose not to. I could hunt over food plots I chose not to. I could go on a guided hunt every year if i wanted to.. i chose not to.. I've been at this game for 25 years and killed my 1st deer on public land that many years ago. The original post was probably meant to stir the pot but I doubt it was meant to cause a divide amongst members on the site. With that i don't knock what anyone is doing as long as it's legal. Kill them however you want to as long it's a legal method. My satisfaction comes playing the game and matching wits with in my opinion the greatest game animal in North America. So just to be clear and not upset anyone in my home state the rich guy can't hire a guide on public land. So he'll have t o earn it with sweat, time , patience and the most lethal weapon in our his brain.
