    What do you do, or did do, for a living?

    I joined the Navy in 74, got out a few years later because my only options were the USS Forrestal or the USS Forrestal. Went to school for 8 years, worked as a strength coach for awhile, then went back in the Navy. I got tired of the politics involved at Div I schools, and the Navy offered basic flight school (only 8 weeks worth for my specialty), plus a chance to continue my profession. I retired in 2007.

    How about the rest of you?

    Did 7 years in the Army, got out in 2006 then got my BS in Wildlife Biology from University of Wyoming in 2010. Been working as a technician on different elk projects since then. Not bad getting paid to run around the mountains of western Wyoming and watch elk, almost like getting paid to go scouting all week.

    I had 32 years in the military - joined the National Guard in 1974, was hired full time a few years later. Put in a total of 32 years. Spent a year in Iraq (2004) and retired Jan 06. Moved to Wyoming last summer. I completed a taxidermy school a couple of years ago. Plan on getting a small business started sometime in the near future.

    I have 18 years in the Air Force and can't wait to retire!! After the AF I plan on doing something that takes little thought...keeps me outside....and I don't mind getting up in the morning to do it. The rest of the time I plan on hunting and fishing with my kids!!! Everything else is not to high on my list... ~Livesilly and live life before its gone!!!

    I work in a university as a researcher. I build drug molecules. Not exactly what most people expect from a guy who goes hunting 150+ days a year, but I like it.
    People in SUV's and suburbs will kill more game animals than a man with a bow, ever could.

    Wow I am very impressed with the service of our forum people, my hat goes off to all of you, and I thank you for your fight to give me my freedom to hunt and enjoy the outdoors! I work for a communications company in a small town. Mainly splice fiber optics for fiber to the home.

    I've worked on our family Mink / Cattle ranch all my life but for the last fifteen years I've also been working at a small independent telephone company here in Northern Utah. Right now I'm mostly selling bandwidth to businesses in our service areas. I'm on the tail end of raising four boys and enjoying life in the country.
