5 to 7 grand as a minimum. You can plan it to a certain time, or be on a "call list", if your schedule allows. When you are on call, an outfitter may call and say he has a nuisance tag to fill, you pack and go. The other way is like any other hunt, you go for a certain amount of days. Its really physical for the most part, tons of fun, I would say worth the money to do it once.
