But the price of venison probably has gone through the roof.

Probably To bad I don't hunt deer anymore.... A couple of them will let the DW walk up to them within a few feet and "almost" hand feed them... They know the difference too since I can't get any closer than maybe 100 feet.

Good thing she doesn't get any closer. Deer are vectors for Lyme disease.

I don't remember but as a small child I was stomped by a POed whitetail in a petting zoo. I thought it had enough corn and tried to not feed the anymore.

The cost of hunting licenses has not gone up yet, at least in our State. Buy a deer license and harvest a couple of deer (as we do every year)........it provides some high-quality meat for the freezer, and you don't have to worry about meat price increases at the store.

I have a pulse on bacon and brisket. Bacon @ Sam's has gone from <$17/4lbs to $24 in the past few months.

Brisket wen from $2.68 to $4.28/lb (whole) in just a few weeks.

Pork, salmon and chicken not as much...

Well on the positive side, I'm sure I see a huge increase in next years SS payments.
Your spouse is misguided in so many ways... deer are not pets. The can feed themselves,teaching them to count on your DW is not the way to go.

Great segue to try and get us back on topic of "worried about inflation", if you are a deer hunter, (or just about any game hunter for that matter) the cost of guns and particularly ammo has really gone up... For a while in the past year it was really hard to find any ammo at any price but things seem to getting better, at least around here.

Not worried about inflation at all.
Very worried about the wealth inequality in our country.

If I were retired and especially if I were living on a lower fixed income, as many are, I'd be extremely concerned about inflation.

Me too. I mean, what's the point of being rich if everyone else is also rich?

And note the cautions in this DNR bulletin about overfeeding deer with corn. It's not good for them. Probably a bigger deal in winter when other food sources are reduced. https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/wildlifehab...eerfeeding.pdf

It is no use lecturing animal overfeeders (whether of wild or tame animals...or even, sometimes, of humans!)

Both wild and tame animals are very, very good at cadging food from humans. They know how to make it fun and rewarding for the feeders.
