Whatís your fuel price limit?
« on: June 07, 2022, 05:03:07 PM »
Iím probably done hunting around the $4.30 price per gallon. So almost a buck over and climbing. Good luck.
Don't read my post if facts hurt your feeling.

I hope gas prices do not stop the hunters, limit trips home, scout a little less but find a way to hunt and enjoy the outdoors.

I do hope it keeps the tweekers closer into the metro areas and away from hunting camps and trailheads.

I have no limit.....but the Canada hunt is getting real expensive real fast.   :bash: :bash:  At current price we are estimating 1K in fuel cost.  That is almost 2.5 times the cost of the last couple trips.

I can tell you Iím not looking forward to driving to California in a month.

More than ďdoneĒ at a price per gallonÖ Iím am wondering how gas guzzling vehicle values are staying so high.
People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.

Itís so high that I actually put in for the draw in Washington and plan on hunting in Washington for the first time in 2 years. Last year at this time I would have still been applying for other states but this year I am glad I didnít draw Montana.

I put 30,000 miles on my vehicles last year and spent $5717 on gas. At that same miles driven I am projected to spend $7908 this year...at least!....A 38% INCREASE!

I buy gas on a Pacific Pride gas card, heres my ave price at around the first of every month.
Jan-$3.45
Feb-$3.57
Mar-$3.53
Apr-$4.31
May-$4.22
Jun-$4.61

So...I will spend $2091 more this year to do the same thing as last year.

Day trips are over and scouting trips will become overnighters.

We might have to start a carpooling haha. Might borrow my sisters Prius for scouting and call my friends to bring the decoys. In reality probably will skimp on scouting days and maybe do more camping than driving every day, hunting days will probably be same as last year but less birds.

Iím debating about driving my Nissan Maxima to gates to hike. If I drive around weyco then Iíll drive the f150 eco boost and sleep in the truck. Either way itís going to be a pricy season with multi season tags. Might have to work some overtime this summer

We have an Escape and I can easily sleep in the back.  I'm about 5' 9". 

Ugh, I'm driving to Eastern MT and then onto Missouri and back.  Looking at $1500 in fuel at todays prices.

$6.50 a gallon is my cut off point for driving around in the woods. Iím buying a motorcycle within the next month to help curtail the gas prices. Iím 40 miles from the nearest gas station.

$5.10 for 87 when I filled up on Sunday

Not a bad idea. I've been switching to our Corolla whenever I can get away with it. It gets almost 3x the mpg as my truck. Did clam digging several times for around 20$ a round trip, for example.
