That was very well stated. I agree with you completely.
Everything about hunting is a variable depending on where one lives. I live in the Pacific Northwest and and am surrounded by an abundance of wildlife. Hunting is not expensive, difficult, or distant. I understand that this is not a constant for everyone, everywhere.
The statements made in the OP are not facts. They are the opinions of one person. One doesn't need good health to hunt- we've had kids from the Make-A-Wish Foundation on our ranch to hunt elk. One had terminal leukemia, another was an amputee who we strapped on to the back of a 4-wheeler because her wheelchair couldn't traverse the dirt roads on the ranch.
I network with lifelong friends in the several states that I hunt yearly. Some of them have not had such good fortune in life. But every fall they buy their deer and upland game tags, put $60 of fuel in their pickup, and go hunt public land with a Savage 110 or a Mossberg 500 pump gun. They are not wealthy, a couple are disabled, none use guides.
But they all avidly pursue the pleasure of hunting, and doing it the way they are able.
I paid less than $75 for this year's combo hunt/fish license, my deer tag will be around $35, I don't buy elk tags because l harvest them on my property with landowner preference permits, turkey tags are $15-ish each. Upland game is just a matter of driving to a logging road anywhere in the local woods, and then just walking and looking.
Animals are everywhere. You can spend time figuring out how and where to hunt them, or you can spend money on a guide- the choice is yours about the experience you want.
