Looks like propane prices this winter. I'll probably do a lot more keeping and not just fishing to cut down on the food bills.

I'm sittin' alright. Have plenty of pork, beef and poultry on hand, both fresh and in the freezer or canned. Will hatch out more chickens and ducks for meat soon.
Got 2 nice deer last rifle season...that's plenty for me. Have quite a bit of fish I caught in the freezer and fishing season is just getting started again for me. Have plenty of quail and dove from hunting last fall.
Now if I can nurse my garden through another dry summer, I'll be fine in the veggie department.

Sounds like you really work to live. I feel sometimes I'm living to work, my dad called it the rat race. He left high paying job to move away from it all in his forties. I worry that being a ninja defines me.
Let's all just calm down and smoke a fatty

Here is the USDA's report from this past week. You can compare weekly increases and also last year's price.

Time to pass on the great tradition of hunting. There's a lot to be said for taking a kid hunting and teaching them to appreciate the natural world. Keep the tradition alive! On that note, why not liven this thread up a bit with some pron. I just finished a fresh ham this past weekend from a wild hog my buddy shot. Sure beats $4+/lb. in the store!

Default Latest case pricing at Sam's

Tyson frozen wings are about the same and you don't have to pay for the wing tip.

Hi All Was at Restaurant Depot today..Talk about sticker shock they had CAB briskets for $3.99, last time maybe a month ago they were $3.10
They used also sell IBP briskets for much less then CAB ones, couldn't find any IBP briskets today.
Also all, they had today were Smithfield ribs,spares n baby backs no IBP ribs at all either.
Pork Butt prices didn't seem that bad.
