Well, I realized I may need a new hobby when I bought clothes with a Cabela's gift card because I couldn't find anything I need in the fishing department (already have more stuff than I'll probably ever use:rofl Actually, I've wanted to take up big game hunting for several years and I think fall 2010 may be my year. I'm looking for advice on what kind of gear I can get on a fairly low budget to get me into the field next year. Rifle, packs, camo, knives and every other little bell and whistle I can get my hands on. I'm thinking of getting a Savage 30-06 combo with scope for the rifle based on talking to a few shops/friends. Any other advice? Where should I sink the big bucks and where can I scrimp a bit? I mostly just want to get out there and I don't really expect to be successful right off the bat (yeah, I fish for steelhead). Mostly I just like getting out into the woods and I wouldn't mind putting some good quality meat on the table. Thanks all!
