    Eh I've got 5 out of 8, if you substitute Honda for Polaris side by side, for no other reason then I work for my money so I'll spend it on what I want. Don't really get concerned with what everyone else thinks, have my own reasons for buying everything own. The stuff maybe more expensive but I get my money worth out of it. What's even more funny when I load up to go hunting all the gear is worht 3 times what the truck its sitting in cost.

    I always thought the top status symbol for a hunter was owning land.

    Hell, if you can afford it and like it buy it. I think the main thing is the reason your buying it. If it’s only to make others have a certain view of yourself than it’s the wrong reason. If it’s because it fills a need than have it.

    I shoot a 10 year old Parker and wear a missmatch of tiger stripe bdu's and whatever mossy oak was on sale. I do have a yeti but so does every soccer mom in my neighborhood.

    As an elitist a-hole that owns the land I hunt on and scout pretty much every day I am home I have to agree with you. I hunt alone nobody to show off to don't wear camo outside of on the stand nobody would know I hunt unless I am a friend.

    My truck has all these stickers and more. Do I actually own any of them?

    Catch me outside, how 'bout that?

    I do have to admit, I have a Ranger but it's 10 years old. Bought it used. It has a funky cab-looks homemade. LOL

    It sure ain't no status symbol.

    I accidentally fit this bill to a T....

    Have a brand new Ranger (bought to feed cows)
    Own the land I hunt
    Have a Yeti (bought for $50 at a wholesale discounting store before they were a thing)
    Shoot a Hoyt (2013 Charger)

    ….never killed a deer with a bow! Guess I really am a poser. Or I work too much to put all my tools together for success...

    As long as you look good doing it, fake it till you make it.

    IMO the article is like most that Bowhunting.com Staff post. It's just an advertisement for sponsors. I quit reading them.
