Well, what do we all do? Or are you lucky enough to be retired and spend all your time hunting? Well, what did you do for a living before you retired?

I'm a Security Shift Manager at a Casino.

Good topic Coyotechaser! I work in a pulp and paper mill in Marathon as a stationery engineer. I operate, boilers, turbines, water treatment......and stuff like that. I work shift work on a 3-2-2 rotation. I've been at the mill (Tembec-Kruger owned) for 13 yrs. Lucky to be employed considering the number of mills shutting down all over.. :(

Tried working in public accounting in the 1990's....not a friendly industry! In 1993, I got hired by Revenue Canada which became the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency which became the Canada Revenue Agency.

Great job for a guy that puts family first!

I was a professional musician at one time but now I'm a Chef. i love cuisine and am trying to save to open my own restaurant or catering co. I worked for an outfitter in AB and SASK as a guide on the side but also got payed extra because I'd give the clients a Fine Dineing experience in the bush. You have NO idea how much money is involved in that and they literally eat up the Chef on site thing! I'd LOVE to do that again! To guide and then create fine dineing masterpieces for people--OH YEAH!

Here goes. I work underground in a gold mine at the Hemlo camp here just outside Marathon. I have been underground for 16 and a half years. I absolutely love my job and the prospects it has given me, but if I had the opportunity, it would be the hospital. That enviroment is where I truely want to be. In my job, we are sometimes required to drive the ambulance,(sometimes called the Rescue Vehicle) especially if we happen to be working on surface with the heavy equipment, or are operating the underground cage, and I get SUCH (don't be offended) A HARD ON when I am there, its not funny. THAT'S where my heart really is, and someday, thats where it will end up.

My schooling is in Computer Programming. I do mostly business application development in my day job now. It's great because I get to work from home.

Over the last 8 months, if I'm not working on my day-job or hunting, I've been working on the magazine or for FROW.

Well I am an ex-banker (10 years) who went out into the financial consulting world with a financial planning company about 5 yrs ago. As a rep you have a contract with the dealer to operate your "book" of clients. It means there is regulatory and obviously financial considerations involved but otherwise I operate as my own business or self-employed owner.

That means I can priortize things my way. Family first, clients second, then me :)

Works out well as I have clients all over Ont and can get around to my hunting spots and usually see a few clients along the way. I will work seeing clients anytime and anyday but that gives me flexibility at other times to manage the schedule. Having the control is nice versus the 9-5 locked in an office with a tie choking me :P

Jan-Mid April I go like stink with RSP and tax season but then everyone has had enough of me :rolleyes: That means when turkey season rolls around I can go hard all season. Errrr, well as long I as I put effort into number one on my priority list ;)

Deer season is tougher as early fall can be a busy time business wise but I manage a little time in the bow stand and take 1 week for the rifle hunt.

Hey crisop does Ontario have a special wild fire team? I saw a show on tv about the guys in BC and it looks like an exciting but hard work job. I was considering looking into how to get involved if Ontario had one but probably never will.
