    Nothing You Listed, Putting it the Bank as the Economy will be extremely slow to get started and as my employer does not have the work and with most business still shut down that will slow the work available. So Glad you can burn 1200.00 but right now I put it in my bank account Just in Case I get Laid Off as monthly bills still need to get Paid...
    And I have everything I need for my Deer Hunting; Rifles, Ammo, Box Blinds, Propane for my Nuway Heater, Bows, Arrows, Ladder Stands, Clothing, Boots, Plot Seed, Fertilizer & Lime. Just need my Combo / Base Licenses... That is not much $! Playing it on Safe Side as we have never dealt with anything like this Pandemic, it has dealt the State and Jobs. IT will be a Slow Recovery... But that is Life Today!!!

    Considering I prefer to deer hunt with a bow, I would buy as many tree stands as I could buy with the money, you can never have to many stands. Reason I say tree stands and bow hunting is only MY preferred method of hunting, to each there own.

    You can build your own blind, you can kill deer with that trusty ole gun you harvested deer with before, you can drag deer with a plastic sled until you can afford a ATV,[unless your my age:lol:

    $1,200 will cover half the cost of my Ohio deer lease.

    Assuming you're all set and it's extra "play money", I'd suggest a $1200 used ATV or a nice used rifle. No reason to go in debt. I'm not a hunting shack guy so that is a no for me. Maybe a nice warm hunting suit.
