How to hunt for wildlife jobs
Posted On June 19, 2021
Primo, a hunter and avid hunter, says he needs to find a job that allows him to make enough money to buy a home and take care of his young children.
Primo, 41, has hunted for deer, bison, elk and elk antelope, which is considered one of the most lucrative jobs in the U.S. hunting for game.
Primos hunt the antelope at the Montana Wildlife refuge, near his home.
PrimoS work is hard and he has to get to work at 4 a.m. in the cold and rain.
The pay is low, he said.
Primoses wife, Heather, said her husband can’t afford to stay home, so he needs a job.
Primoes parents work at the federal government, but he said they are not in a position to afford the $150,000 a year they usually earn.
He said his parents need to take care and make sure their kids are fed, clean and safe.
Primomos hunting and fishing buddies say he has never been more motivated to get in the game.
He says he doesn’t care if he has a job, if it means getting to work in the winter and summer, or in the summertime.
Primoms wife, who lives in Montana, said she thinks it’s unfair that hunters pay so little and that hunters who work long hours need a job too.
Primomo said he’s lucky to be in the middle of a job market that is growing, especially for hunters, because the hunters are going to want to take those jobs.
Primoman said he hunts a lot, and wants to go back to hunting in the spring.
But, he says, he needs the money.
