    Nothing can suck the fun out of something faster than money.

    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 [=}=]

    Ya gotta love those Minnesota blondes, don’t ya? I’ve got me one of them too. :X

    I could hunt for a living easily. I agree about too much time in the stand, though. You’ve gotta get out in the world once in a while too, but I don’t think I’d ever get tired of hunting for a living. The season is only 3 1/2 months long, though, so I’d have to spend the other 8 1/2 months scouting and doing habitat improvements.

    A guy can dream, can’t he?

    If i hunted for a living i’d be the happiest man alive. This being said i wouldn’t want to do it for some production company….time alone in the deer woods is what i truly live for and having a camera over my shoulder would diminish what i enjoy about it soo much. If i just had enough cash to hunt and not hold a steady job i’d love it, but i don’t want to be a “pro” [=}=]

    I don’t think i will enjoy hunting as a full time job,it depend of the job,(guiding,or something like that).
    What i like in hunting is the freedom,no time (watch),no cell,no phone,no dateline,no rushing ,ect…
    Hunting for me is liberty,no pressure,i do what i want,NO STRESS! [=}=]

    I grew up loving to work on cars. I loved it…tinkered all the time. So, I thought it would be a cool way to earn a living. It sucked. I went back to college, got another degree, and moved on.

    Turning your hobby into your job is a decision we all have to make carefully. Not everyone is cut out for it; I wasn’t. If you make your favorite hobby your work, what do you do to get away from your job?

    I work hard so I can enjoy what I want to do….when I want to do it. If I don’t succeed at hunting/fishing/etc, I still have a way to support my family.

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s good to be passionate about your work. I just needed to seperate the two.

    Sounds great!

    I’d just be worried it would suck all the fun out of it. Then what would I do to relax? :fishing :-({|= :smt24

    That’s very true. You hear people say that they’re “doing what they love to do”, but no matter how much you like to do something, when you’re forced to get out of bed and do it whether you feel like it that day or not, it ceases to be done for enjoyment and it becomes work.

    I’d like to hunt for a living, but under my own rules, I guess. :)
