I am thinking of going hunting next deer season. I have never been hunting, and I have never even had any interest in it at all. But about a year ago I developed an interest in guns, and now it only seems natural. I know I would have to take a hunters safety course, what other expenses are there? The only rifles I have are a .22 and half of an AR. I would probably borrow my wifes dads rifle to go with, as him and his son go hunting each year. How much venison does one deer produce? How long does it usually last?
