I can tell you that I am almost 40 and served in the military for only 8 years when i decided college was not for me, when i got out apparently I made the wrong choice of profession. LOL I am very happy fishing and hunting and living to my means and if I could afford it I would not have a problem paying that kind of money. However I do just fine with all of the set ups I have which is way to many, says the wife. I have even hired a guide on stockton for my dad and me to learn more about walleye fishing in the south as we are from SD originally. And soon one day I will try the same thing on TRL for bass just to learn a few things. I take a week hunting trip in the fall to bow hunt the rut and 3 days in the spring to fish the BBB. I save enough through the year to treat myself to that and still have time with my family. I guess all i mean to say is that Wealth means different things to different folks and I dont mind one bit if they want to buy those kinds of toys, as long as they keep their wake boats on there private ponds!!!!
