    My wife and I own and run a retail jewelry store. I managed it for 10 years and then bought it 14 years ago. I cut colored gemstones
    to help pay for my hunting and fishing addictions. I'm also a jeweler and gemmologist. Bruce

    I am a sixth-grade social studies teacher. I also have done wedding photography for the last 10 years. Wedding photography paid for my first African safari.
    I am starting a hunting consultant business as well. My website will be up in the next few weeks (hopefully).

    Hi, I would be happy to work with all of you when the need arises. I myself am a professional ecologist. I conduct environmental assessments, and advise on environmental and resource permitting/compliance. I am also experienced in matters of wildlife biology, habitats, wetland and soil science, mitigation, and other related issues. I have over 14 years of experience working to help my clients satisfy state and federal regulatory compliance and permitting. I also work as the principle scientist for Florida Waterfowlers, and really enjoy working to improve wildlife habitat on private lands. I can support your efforts to improve your hunting land or perhaps a club you belong to or a lease you and your friends have. Thanks much.

    I am the business manager for a drilling company based in western Colorado. We perform rotary and core drilling primarily for mining companies. We have clients in Wyoming, Utah and Colorado. In addition to drilling we also plug holes from water wells to oil & gas wells. Our services keep people like bigred in business. Prior to this position I was a commercial banker for 20 years.

    GP in NSW, Australia. If you get sick on an Australia hunt, let me know (ditto if you want to hunt deer. They seriously need culling in some places. Went out last week, saw 26 reds and 14 fallow between 6.00 and 9.00am. 2 of the latter now inhabit my freezer). Way back I was an officer in the Light Infantry (Jaeger) in the German Bundeswehr.

    I am a physician, specifically a "family doctor," board certified in Family Medicine. After 5 grueling years in private practice being on call every other night and working every other Saturday and Sunday, where I made alot of money but had no time to enjoy it (or my family), I sold out of my practice and became the medical director for a state university student medical center in my hometown in southeast Georgia. I see 20 patients a day and supervise a staff of 65 medical professionals, including another physician, 5 nurse practitioners, and a physician assistant. We have a student population of over 20,000 and see around 130-140 patients a day, so as I like to tell people "I am busier than I used to be between the hours of 8 and 5, but after that my time is MINE!" No call, no weekend work= more time to hunt and spend with friends and family. I work occasionally at an urgent care center, and even cover for my old partner sometimes in my old private practice, to keep my other skills sharp. I also volunteer once to twice a month at a local indigent care "free" clinic. Had I not made this change, I would have be 60 or older before I could make a trip to Africa--if ever.
