At least you didn't buy a TW200

Diesel is 6.02 at pinegrove in Republic, just in time to rape the second wave of deer hunters! I'm guessing rifle deer season will be 6.30 ish. :dunno:

I despise the high gas prices with every fiber of my being but will they change my hunts? Nope. There are plenty of ways for me to make up for the couple hundred bucks over the course of the year to offset the extra few. We all have a finite amount of hunting seasons in us so fuel won't change that. We will run out of health before we run out of money.

Many of us don't have an extra $60K+ sitting around doing nothing to buy one. Coercing us with $0.50 cap and trade tax/gal isn't helping us save, either. The combination of the Biden failed energy policy and the Inslee carbon tax scheme is crushing the middle class here. Having everyone in electric vehicles in 10 years is not only an insane plan that's unattainable, but it's unsupportable with our power grid.

My solution to high fuel prices was to get this. Itís cut down on the amount of times Iíve had to go 55 miles into town for gas and Iíve only had it since August! Can Cover a lot more ground now so itís already a win in my book!

That's going to be tough to drive a moose out on though  :chuckle:

Four hour round of golf at a good course costs 100+ round of sporting clays with shells, 100 bucks. Every thing is expensive, two bags of groceries 100 bucks. Fuel will not deter my passion.

There is but it only makes sense for folks already in the market for a vehicle replacement.

We were in the market for a replacment last year and MPG was something we wanted so I could scout and visit the woods cheaper than the 13 MPG my big truck gets.  But if I was not in the market anyways trying to justify saving 500 to 1000 bucks on gas by spending north of 25,000 takes a long time to make work.  And they is probably cheap for an electric vehicle.

I feel for folks strapped for the extra, fuel like everything else is just continuing to squeeze budgets, which means choices and priorities need to be figured out. I hated to drive back and forth this year during season but decided for me time in woods was worth the money.

I just wish my wife did not take her annual daughter trip same week as elk season. Because I still have the bad MPG truck for hunting because she had the new one.   :chuckle:

I just got back from Montana towing a trailer and it was 2 tanks each way and diesel in Montana is still north of $4.50/gallon. Spent $1k on fuel for the trip.

Beyond fuel the general cost maintenance of vehicles is crazy as well. My truck is going in next week for brakes and thatís over $2k as well these days.

I take off from my house on my wheeler for a reason most the time. I hate gas prices. Told my wife I prefer to hunt in my Subaru Impreza when Iím not on the wheeler. Reality it can go down basic gravel/dirt road, has an huge front window and gets almost 40 mpg. Iím not about looks, I just lay the seats down and put down a tarp 😂
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

Every gallon of fuel burned is a write off. Which means the more miles I put on scouting, grouse hunting and big game hunting is less $$ paid in taxes. Suck it IRS!
