    I would suggest that you look at some of the state wildlife agencies. I worked as a wildlife trooper in Alaska for 20 years and found it to be a fun and rewarding career. Many states require a degree in a related field, Alaska does not at this time. It helps to have one though. Also, make yourself employable by obtaining anything that could set you apart from another applicant; pilot's license, Coast Guard license, etc. and stay away from any legal troubles.
    Prayers help too!

    I'm @ Texas Tech at the moment. I did my undergrad @ Colorado State. My current project is on factors effecting recruitment in rocky mountain elk in New Mexico. Ran a serological survey, calf mortality and survival study, and attempting to do some population age structure reconstruction using age at harvest data. I'm hoping to have everything completed this fall.

    At least you don't have any grey wolves or grizzlies to deal with or you probably wouldn't enough calves to study!

    OOOFFFF, population reconstructions. I had a 20-something year dataset of that in Maryland at my master's research site - talk about some confusing Microsoft Excel worksheets! Best of luck with your defense this fall, sounds like a neat project!

    I have been a Wildland firefighter for 8 years now, originally started to pay my way through college, which it did, but once i got out of college in 2008 there werent many job opportunities, however with fire I always had rehire rights each spring so i just kept on doing it. I have slowly been working my way up the ranks which sometimes requires relocating as well. I am currently stationed at a remote guard station in the idaho backcountry and spend everyday outside doing somthing. (mostly "scouting"). I recieved my degree in Recreation which both the U.S. forest service and BLM have departments in, and once I want to have a normal life am hoping to move over into that. I love my Job. and get to travel the country while doing it.

    Look into mining. Good pay and you generally live in good hunting places out west. I have been doing it for nine years and I love it.
