I live in Omaha and while I am fortunate to have a bunch of private farms in Iowa they are all 2 hours from home. Last year instead of taking 2 trucks we took the ranger to save our legs. This year I will be leaving it up there vs trailering it each time and getting 8-10 mpg...i'm hoping that helps out some. I'm up in the Dakota's 10-15 times from April-Sept guiding walleye trips, but when the calendar turns to fall I am on my own for bird hunting and the expenses that come with it. I wish I could find reliable hunting buddies, but it always seems when the time comes no one either wants to go or chip in for fuel. I will still hunt Iowa a bunch this fall, but as others have said I might cook while there or take pre cooked meals and cut costs that way.
