After 11 years I switched up my area from the San Juan to the Book Cliffs and to my surprise and my wife's we had $350 extra dollars pulled from our bank account she discovered that before I did.
My wife transferred some money from checking to savings and left around $400 in the checking account for groceries and the weekend. While she was at the store ready to check out, she discovered she didn't have enough funds. Confused as to why she came home and discovered $350 from DWR had been deducted. You can image her frustration and confusion not knowing what it was for.
She called me looking for answers as she had to go back to the house and get some cash and return to the store to finish buying the groceries.
So, my Parade was rained out before they even built the float!
IRONY of this Year; I finally drew out, but am less prepared than ever before. Financially and gear wise.
How do you hunt when you can't afford to.
I have two options and I will have to weight them out to see what happens
1) Shoestring budget and make it happen
2) Turn the tag back in and hope for a better $ Year.
I understand that at the end of the day there are other responsibilities that come before hunting. The word "Selfish" has been address on this glorious day of celebration....ah, scratch that I mean the curse of a CC charge.
Time will tell.
I'm almost too upset to even type and think about it
