Hunters eat better then any one else in the world. We get to eat the best meat available, but have you ever wondered what it would cost to buy that same meat in the store? Yes, I know it is not exactly the same. There is absolutely no way you could replace the satisfaction of harvesting your own food. Also, there is no way to put a price tag on the adventure of getting it. But is you are curious here is what just the meat costs.
Exotic Meat Market out of Las Vegas offers quite the smorgasbord of meat, but it will cost you a pretty penny. Based on these prices I can not imagine any one buying it. They must cater to rich people who want to serve a novelty item at their next dinner party. I started with some of the normal animals and it just gets weirder the farther down you go.
I know a lot of you have a freezer full and you really are sitting on a gold mine. Look at these prices.
