I have used our states Subsistance hunting and fishing provision to supplament my modist income, the Caribou and fish shure help strech the dollar here as allot of day to day items cost allot, just the basic monthly Local 'no-longdistance' telephone is over $30 a gallon of gasoline is over $7.38 at the pump. a dozzen eggs at the store cost in excess of $4, a gallon of milk costs $9.98 a box of rifle shells (30-06) is over $38. Instead of hamburger helper I have caribou helper, instead of Tuna helper its Salmon helper, Aha-Loo-too-walk is meat & gravy on rice, seal oil goes for $30 a 1/2 pint. I work but definately use subsistance to strech my grocers need to feed and care for 3 kids and 2 dogs and a mortgage (poverty acres). I run a snowmobile that should of died years back (1994 arctic cat) its costly keeping equipment running to get out there where the game is.
