I've heard alot of guys say this is the way to go. For both money and to be in the outdoors. Can someone tell me more about this? I'm currently thinking about waterfowl habitat management, but it dosen't look like there are many jobs or very much money in this. Any help is appreciated.

I would contact your DNR, the USFS, USFWS, DU, and Delta Waterfowl. If they don't have jobs, they may at least have some contacts for you.

i am currently in forestry school and i love it, i think that if you are looking for something in the outdoors it would be a great choice. depending on which direction you go after school it can be great money.

I'm majoring in Wildlife management and minor in forestry. I'v looked at the money and I can live with $25,000-$30,000yr for something that I love to do. I've had pleanty of jobs that pay more. but im looking for a good career.

I'm doing foresty, or Wild Manegmet for me too. The Biology Teacher I TA for used to be a park ranger for the forest service and he is going to try and get me a little job over the summer helping rangers for a 2 week pack trip in the alpine lakes area were I live to restore trails.
