    Do yall think you would enjoy hunting if you had to do it for a job. i mean the thing i think i enjoy is to have a place to go to get away from everything pulling on me. i dont think i would enjoy it if i HAD to produce, but i also feel it would be a fun challenge!????

    Hypothetically yes. Reality…..well I would like to try. I do know that after taking several first time turkey hunters I got at least as big of thrill as they did in bagging a bird. Calling in turkeys for first timers ….man you ought to see the look on their faces when a bird comes strutting in and after killing a turkey. Priceless.
    Then if you have no clients well……….. its time to go hunting. :thumbup

    While I would like to hunt everyday for a living, I don’t think I’d enjoy it as much. In my little mind, It wouldn’t be as rewarding to have someone give you all your gear your gonna need, have your spots picked out and stands placed. I’m also guessing they don’t have to pay for there hunts either. I like the part about saving up some vacation time to get away. Going out there, putting up my stand, shooting a deer, tracking and cleaning it myself and then eatin it !! Thats why I like it. I’m afraid if I were a pro-hunter, I’d miss out. But, thats just my opinion ……

    Who do I mail the job application to????

    It would be the one thing I could do 365 and never be bored or get tired of doing it. I just need a week or two off each year to fish. :D

    My resume isnt that great but sign me up. I go to work in a job that I could walk away from in a heartbeat, and start one that I love its a no brainer. :D
    I hunt because I can.

    That’s kind of what I imagine doing if I ever hit the lottery. Buy a big piece of land and manage it for wildlife, maybe book a few hunters in.
    It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.

    I’m sure I would still enjoy it if it was my job. I hunt about 95% of the time I’m not working during the season (and I have a lot of time off), the other 5% is hunting related stuff. Single with no kids, I tend to get a little obsessive when it comes to hunting.

    Like any job I am also certain there would be some degree of burn out after a while. I know after I put more than 10 days straight in a tree with nothing else going on, my mind gets a little funky. You need to get out of that stand every now and then and realize there is more to life than just hunting. My girlfriend just reminded me of that last night. Well both her and Ranger did [=}=]

    I don’t know. I tried a bass fishing tournament one time. Took all of the fun out of it for me. I couldn’t relax. I was way too competitive.
