What should a member spend his gm$ (mission money) on?

Postby raw1990 » July 8th, 2015, 5:57 pm

Hello fellow hunters!

I am a fresh new trailrunner and I was wondering what would you suggest to spend gm$ on? After buying the Single Shot shotgun I see that I am slowly accumulating a lot of gm$ witch surely must be invested in something... I reckon =)

What is more cost effective?
Scents?
Face paints?
Maybe a scent eliminator?
Or any other good suggestions from the pros in here.

Thanks for the help!

My guess is that most people use them for hog and bear bait. Personally I've never used face paint, but occasionally buy the small scent eliminator or urine spray with $gm.

Have you noticed a significant improvement while under the effect of the scent eliminator?
Would you say a urine spray is in any way more beneficial than a simple caller?

I only use scent eliminator if I am on the ground, trying to get in close for a bow or handgun shot, and the wind is coming from a bad direction (my back towards the animal).

Calls and spray are both similar and different. The callers are immediate, cause a verbal response from some species, and have no cost. The sprays last longer, have a shorter range, and cost. 90% of the time I only use a caller, but will sometimes use spray if I'm dealing with a group of animals (deer, elk, etc.). In a group, the better animals will often hang back while the smaller ones come in quicker. It seems like the spray holds them in place longer, and eventually the bigger animals will come in. Sometimes with the caller, the bigger animals will lose interest before reaching the call spot.

Well heres what first came to mind.

But im just kidding of course.
I don't spend much gm (none really). If I did, it would be only first aid or camping supply's. Assuming I needed them, but I don't. oh. and hookers.
speaking of. forget the first aid and camping supply's.

Just kidding. again.

and the idea that facepaint wears off after a little while is stupid.

You made me laugh there =)
True that it wears off... But I recon 4 hours is not too bad.
The scent eliminator wears off pretty fast though (30 minutes)

I buy this stuff for my gm$.

Camping Supplies - Need lots of them.
First Aid Kit - Not needed often but good to have.
Climbing Gear - Only needed once for each wall.
Scent Eliminator Mini - Useful but short time, I only use this one if I'm onto something big or have a really bad wind.
Wind Indicator - I rarely use these but it's cheap so it's worth having a few in inventory.
Face Paint - Same as Wind Indicator and you can look like rambo infront of your freinds.


I don't know about Scent Sprays, are they worth using?

Save you GM to buy climbing gear. If you're going to hunt in Val-des-Bois you'll need them, plus it's fun to climb ;) I had 38659 in GM bought 18 climbing gear (over kill) I fell a lot at first, it left me with 17077 for other goodies like camping supplies for fast travel. Oh, and only buy the 15 pack of camping supplies, it takes too much space in your back pack if you buy the 100 pack.
face paint eh, if you want a "kool" picture, but it don't do anything but keep bugs away for a while, but so does the volume knob. :lol:

Only my opinion. You earned it, you spend it. :D
