What do y'all do??

Postby MitchMN » Tue Oct 01, 2013 8:37 pm

I know we all wish we could hunt for a living but what does everyone actually do to fund the habit? I myself am a high school social studies teacher.

Dude most of us have those! I know I do! Otherwise I'd have a better boat, a dog, more nice decoys, and a better gun ha!

Conservation officer, so careful what you post.

Just kidding! Ha ha.

I'm in accounting/finance which sucks because October is our second busiest time of the year...almost impossible to get vacation days to chase the ducks.

Wildllife Management student University of Minnesota - Crookston, but there's a good chance I'll switch over to Natural Resources Management because the 3.0 GPA required for wildlife management is a little intimidating.

For the next 2-3 week, I'll be beet truck driver part time. The farming operation I'm working for has a few corn fields, which aren't all to common around this way, so hopefully they will hold geese when they are cut.

I like the wide range of jobs! If only we could figure out how to hunt and make money doing it!
