HUNTERS and others have been trying to get a job for more than 20 years, and they’re still searching.
But job hunting is no longer just for hunters, but also anyone who enjoys hunting.
The job market is expected to expand by about 7.5 percent in 2018.
“It is important that hunters be able to do this job,” said David Hulbert, a former hunter in Oregon who now runs a company that helps hunters find and keep jobs.
“It’s a great job, but it’s also a great experience, so people want to do it.”
Hunt.com, which tracks hunting jobs, reports that there are more than 1,500 hunting jobs posted online.
Hulbetts site has been tracking the postings for about a year.
More than a dozen people interviewed for this story declined to say which jobs they were looking for.
Many hunters who have posted jobs say they are looking for a job that’s more like a career.
Hunters say they enjoy hunting and want to hunt as much as they can.
But they’re also desperate to keep their job.
“It’s just something I love to do, and I want to continue to do so,” said Brian Boccard, a Florida man who was a hunt guide for two years.
He said he was looking for something that pays $100 per day and has a lot of responsibilities.
“I don’t think I’m going to be able make that living doing it,” Boccards said.
Hunter.com reported that there were 2,945 jobs posted on Hunt.com in 2017.
Hulbets site shows that hunters who were looking in 2017 were able to find 1,919 jobs.
It’s also reported that Hunt.net has been posting job listings for more people since it began in 2012.
Hunt.net posted 1,634 job listings in 2017, including 1,564 hunters who had posted jobs.
Hunt and Hunt.org, which helps hunters with their hunting jobs and hunting-related expenses, reported there were 1,826 jobs posted in 2017 and 1,769 in 2018, with Hunt.tv and Huntly adding jobs.
Hulbert said that hunters need jobs that are competitive, but that they also need jobs they can easily fill.
“You need to have a good skillset,” he said.
“You can’t just do a hunt and not have any knowledge of the business.”
