Default What's the perfect job for whitetail hunters!

I have been hunting for years and haven't been able to find that perfect job. If there is a hunter out there with the job I need, then lets hear about it!

I'm the Senior Patrol Supervisor on a mid sized PD in ND, in some of the best deer hunting, waterfowling, and fishing there is. I work three shifts, any of which allow time for morning or evening hunts before work. As I hunt on my own farmstead or within a couple miles of it, this works out nicely. Being the most senior officer,I get priority on vacation, so I've reserved 2 weeks minimum to hunt the rut every Fall, and have for years. Due to seniority, I accrue enough vacation to take 5-6 weeks off a year, yet still carry over the max hours allowable at the end of the year. Get paid pretty darn well, too, Took a while to build up the seniority, but man, was it worth it...

As a doc, flexitime is relatively easily arranged. Pity I don't earn anything while chasing all that wildlife <img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>. I guess that's the tradeoff for taking life instead of saving them <img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>!

I would say your best bet is to hit the lottery! That way you don't have to work, wich almost leaves more than enough time to hunt.

TAKE YOUR KIDS HUNTING AND YOU WON'T BE HUNTING FOR YOUR KIDS

Offshore roustabout, 7 days on 7 days off.

Self-employed CPA, Lawyer, or other business, you set your own hours.

Pro baseball player, you are off during hunting season.

Free Spirit/Goof Off - you do what you want

Professional Politician - No work, good pay, good perks (Monica, Air Force One, run of place on any Federal or State Lands, etc.) lots of free time.

Equipment field tester for Cabela's - tough job but someone has to do it.

I have the best job. I'm a crop consultant. I start work in March and finish in mid August. I get to hunt all winter. It also helps when your bride also works. Rick

Well I tried being a male prostitute, but darn near starved to death, I got to hunt a lot though.
