Probably between $400 and $500. That would included everything.


Edit: just to break it down.

Entry fees are around $150 here.
Meat is usually around $120
Beer and food probably $50-$75
Plus fuel, but I was lucky enough to not have to travel over an hour this year. Two contests were within 15 minutes.

About a thousand, I'm sure the gas prices will make a rebound just in time for next season.

$500 is a good average, depending on distance and entry fees.

My guess....for contests around my area..

Entry = $200.00 - $300.00
Meat = $180.00 - $200.00
Misc Supplies = $150.00 - $200.00
Fuel = $100.00 - $150.00
Booze = $50.00 - $70.00
--------------------------
yep I'm guessin with a fuzzy math factor worked in $900.00 - $1000.00 ish

O yeh and about $50.00 for side bets.

I would probably be in the $500.00 to $700.00 range. Gas, food, etc.. all adds up pretty quickly.

Since there are nooooooooooooo local contests around Cleveland, it is usually a minimum of 3-4 hours drive, gas prices-ouch, contest entry-always try to get the early bird special, meat, extras, probably around 800 a contest.....most so far was 1100 due to going 8 hours hauling a trailer.......but, hey, I got a nice plaque......

Including fuel, figure about $1000 per contests for ones around here.




I still havent put up my AR/Jack post... one interesting part of that journey was those 3 contests with travel costs were upwards of $6-$7,000. Details to follow once i get off my ass and finish the post.

This year, excluding the Royal we spent $500-$600 for each contest (excluding booze). After taking prize money into account, we averaged a net expense of just $225 per contest. We split everything 3 ways for most contests and that comes out to just $75 each per contest.

Usually about $800 for contests here in Georgia, up to $1000 if we have to leave the state depending on the current cost of diesel.
