Find better or comparable hunting closer to home. Its a big state and there are birds all over.

If you want an excuse you will always be able to find one.

Sorry for sharing about the challenges of us average waterfowl hunters are facing such as these gas prices.  Your right about big state but left out with high gas prices. Birds all over, wish is was just that easy, believe me!

Where do you live hdshot? You can PM me if you want or just give a general area. I feel you on gas prices it is ridiculous whether it be truck gas or boat gas, it is all absurd. I will shell out my money either way, but trips get fewer and fewer :(

Iíve just adapted to high gas prices and cut the other crap out of my life such as getting breakfast burritos in the morning and saving all the per diem I get with my job. It probably helps that I donít have kids during these tumultuous times ran by the entire cesspool of clowns in D.C.

I usually drive to hunt with my buddies in Mount Vernon every weekend, but this year Iíll only go up once or twice.

If anyone wants to hunt the opener in the South Sound area, shoot me a PM.

FWIW, 2023 is actually cheaper YTD than 2022.  And both are less expensive, inflation adjusted, than 2008 and 2012. 

Me, there are so many costs involved with hunting and fishing, an incremental $1.00/gallon is not high on the list.

As dead as the waterfowl site has been up to the day before the opener, you'd think nobody was gonna hunt this year. A fella that I take occasionally was looking at November options and wants to just bring one boat to save$$. He's also dumping a ton of money on overpriced pants for rifle elk season. Found that funny

Remember when you set the pump nozzle on full throttle.
It would click,stop pumping and she was full.
Now it clicks,and you can milk another 5 to 10 dollars in it.
Back in the day ,you was lucky to milk another 50 cents.
And it was leaking all over the ground.

Crazy how times change.
I rather piss in the wind,then have piss down my back.

Yeah, a former hunting partner might think accessible public lands are now just hot garbage from a dumpster fire because he told me no guarantees he would hunt with me again, it sounds like he tags along with new friends that have exclusive permission to some awesome private land.
