It can be expensive but it doesn't have to be.I haven't bought a dozen arrows in about three years and I'm still re-using the same BH's that I've had for the past 10 years.I buy one pack of replacement blades per year but usually just tough them up once they go through a deer.I used to spend a pile of money on hunting but now I really don't spend much at all except for equip for my kids .
I was dropping cash the last few years getting my Archery collection together to be comfortable to get out there. It is extremely expensive but this year, I'll not be buying new arrows or broad heads. I did buy a new bow and although I won't have it out in time, I got another money muncher... my first granddaughter which I'm financially funding. Diapers aren't cheap! She's pretty cute and comes first though! lol
We set out a box of bolts to be ready for a 3-d shoot today. Dog chewed up the fletching and the nocks of two of them sometime over night! She's got about a hundred chew toys but she had to go after our shiny new "sticks"!
