Financing a Hunting Trip

For most on here there is a dream trip floating up around in their heads but there is a question of how to pay for it.  This has been a problem for all hunters that wish for that elusive moose, bear, goat, sheep, elk, deer, or any other hunt where you are required to hire a guide or you choose to hire one for that hunt of a lifetime.   

First off I am not a financial planner I am just a hunter that learned a long time ago that even with a great job there are going to be some things that will just stay as a dream unless you do something about it, and that time is now.  It was over 35 years ago when I was talking with a gentleman and he happened to ask me the $60,000 question at that time.  He asked me what I was doing with all of my money.  At that time all that I was concerned with was that I had food in my stomach and gas in my truck, the rest didn’t matter.  I was what they would call foot loose and fancy free.  He then asked me what I enjoyed doing and how much money it would take to continue to do these things.  At that time my bank balance looked close to the national debt.  A few years earlier I had spent every penny that I had for a brown bear hunt in Alaska when I was 19.  That trip had taken all of my savings from all the odd jobs that I had through high school and the summers of lawn mowing.

Now that I am retired my hunting account is to the point that I can withdraw enough funds for a real nice hunt of my choice each and every ...
