    How big of a factor does cost have on your decisions of equiptment?  Do you decide on the bow, arrow, or sight you want and cost has not part of the decison.  Or do you budget a certain amout of money and get the best you can within your budget? How much does cost effect your decisions?  And do you think you get whet you pay for when it costs to archery equiptment?

    It is a big factor for me. For one thing, I have a five hour drive to get to my hunting spot so there is considerable cost just in getting there if I want to hunt for any length of time. I've kind of taken the buy something decent that is affordable just to get everything I need then try to buy one or two premium products every year to switch out the average stuff route. My costs are compounded by filming hunts. We need double the stands and of course camera equipment. This year my hunter partner and I bought five nicer stands to go with some of the smaller ones we had from last year. After setting them we've noticed a huge difference in comfort. I've also recently invested in a Muddy camera arm to replace my Gorilla arm and there is a rumor out there about me getting a premium bow. Gotta keep that one under the radar. You didn't hear that from me.

    Do you get what you pay for? In most cases, yes. Everything I've purchased that was an upgrade from my old equipment feels like a definite upgrade when using it.

    I seem to always buy the items I want. Cost plays a factor for me also, but if it seems that the product I want is expensive, I always seem to find away to get it. I feel you get what you pay for and like you said. Sometimes I feel it worth the penny pinching to get the item you want.

    I have to save for what I want to buy for my hunting equipment.  I teach nine months out of the year and work for a contractor the other three months building houses and remodeling.  I save my money from the summer for my leases and my new hunting equipment.  I usually purchase one big ticket item like a gun or bow.  This summer I purchased a new Elite Answer bow for the 3D tournaments I go to.  My old 3D bow (Elite Pure) I switched over to my hunting bow.  I believe the new products that I buy do help and I always put them to the test in the deer woods.
