Time for a revival:

I am a 5* Concession/Lodge manager in the Okavango Delta, Botswana and do freelance Professional Hunting when Iam home in the Eastern Cape South Africa. I have an honours degree in Wildlife Management and would LOVE a job as a full time professional hunter or game farm manager working on habitat rehabilitation and game breeding.
my wife and I have plans of establishing our own Hunting Outfitters in the Eastern Cape one day and sharing our beautiful environment with fellow hunters.

;)
Sable 123,
When you get your operation up and running, contact me.

I am a Police Officer and have been for 13 years. I'm also a owner and the operations manager of the Rockin G Ranch. We do all inclusive fully guided hunts for whitetail, mule deer, some exotics ( low fenced), hogs, turkey, and some wing shooting.
I had forgotten about this thread and wow things have changed over the last two years. I left the Police Dept after about 15 years and bought a Taxidermy Company. Now I am doing Taxidermy and my outfitting business full time. My ranch has doubled in size since this initial post. I now offer about 23 different species total between high and low fenced hunts as well as rep for several African outfits and one Romanian outfitter.

Started out as a paperboy at age 9. Been working ever since. From a burger joint(there were no Mcdonalds, Burger Kings etc. in my days, to concrete work.
Got in the electrical industry after high school and was a journeyman electrician 23 years and part time taxidermist. Retired from electrical in 2000 and jumped into the taxidermy business with both feet. Been a great ride ever since, 30+ years now in taxidermy. Always wanted to be a taxidermist when young and travel to Africa. August will be my 10th hunt in Africa with more to come.
I live in South Dakota.

Business owner. Oil, transportation and finance are the 3 currently. However, I think there is a huge hole in online marketing for African hunts. I'd love to figure out how to plug that hole. Just met with my marketing guy today......

Retired US Navy after 22 years. Retired course developer ... mostly government after 20 years. Pastored a small Presbyterian church for 5 years. Now mostly retired, still serving very part time as a Commissioned Pastor at a large church. Catching up on the hunting and fishing and family time I missed while I was busy serving others.

Interesting how diversified the work is yet all having the same hunting passion.

Phoneix Phil, very few birds. Been too many tough years on the birds. Lost many acres of CRP, farm fence to fence, tear out shelter belts, you name if for the almighty dollar.
Good thing for all the African mounts.

I hope all are having a great summer.

I actually sell produce for a living, wholesale. Been at it for about 8 years now. Have done sales to other wholesalers, chain stores, health food stores, food coops, etc. I used to tell my coworkers if my more "organic" customers asked what I was doing when I am out hunting, to tell them I am out getting "free range, organic, cage free meat"

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.
