    Is There Anyone One On This Forum That Makes A Living On Hunting &Fishing

    I have always Loved the Out Doors and Wonder the different things you could possible do with It to make a living. Anything from Guiding to Retail and Anything in between...

    I don't personally, but have a cpl friends who are ranch managers and make a decent living with a house to live in. They get to hunt, trap, guide, fish about 250 days a year.

    A rich woman.

    I dabble in the retail world. I sell vortex optics and own a website called solooutdoor.com neither of which would feed a family. Im terrible at charging enough to be considered profitable. The business pays for itself and I really enjoy talking with customers new and old about items they have purchased that helped them achieve their goals on hunts. I have alot of fun bs'n when people come over to buy optics and talking hunting with people around the globe. As much as I wish it were profitable enough to leave the day job and spend more time outdoors, I think I am at a pretty happy medium. I enjoy hard manual labor during the days, Make some side cash with the business to afford scouting trips and occasional new gear. And still have time to do what Im truly passionate about which is being a father and a husband. Ive played both sides of the spectrum chasing the "ultimate hunting job" but really I have found that the time in the woods I have to work hard for to be there, makes it much more enjoyable while im there.

    Yeah... Your prices are little low... Go ahead and keep it that way though, I'm gonna need one of those little 50mm Vortex spotters sooner or later!
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    A hat, shirt, bino harness and a lens cleaning kit. Not bad, considering they really didn't need to do it.
