The Wall Street Journal has an article on hunting “camps” for hunters this morning and I’d say that someone was pulling a city slicker reporter’s leg. Of course, who pays prices like these except corporate city slickers who can charge the whole expense off to their shareholders (no, those shareholders are very much not invited to visit), and what do they know from Bullwinkle?
In any event, despite encompassing what a New York City denizen might consider a limitless swath of wilderness, 240 acres is not large enough to hold what the realtor promises will be “mountain elk, mule deer, antelope and rhinoceroses” (I added that last bit of fauna, but you get the idea). The dudette ranch is in Cody, Wyoming, and close to Grand Teton National Park (where hunting is for all practical purposes forbidden) so it’d be a wonderful spot to hang out – hell, I’d like to live there permanently- but for hunting, either plan on using the surrounding public lands with all the rest of the hoi polloi or better yet, save your money and go on guided hunting trips every year for $10,000 per for the next 750 years.
But if you do buy this place, remember to invite me out next fall.
