Millions of people across the country love the outdoors. Whether it’s hunting, fishing, hiking, etc., the great outdoors is loved by many. And chances are a good portion of those people would love to work in the outdoor industry.
I’ve worked as an outdoor writer, editor, photographer, video producer, worked in marketing and communications departments, retail scenes and more. And each of these can be great careers for those who enjoy hunting and fishing.
It might seem as if the hunting industry is a large one. In reality, it isn’t. It isn’t easy to get established in it, either. It takes time and hard work. My advice? Figure out what you’re good at. Determine where your skills are best suited. And then choose a path. Work hard. Network. Establish contacts. Keep trying.
Still not sure of what road to go down? Here are 15 options that might work for you. And remember, regardless of which you choose, ease into it. Do it part-time on the side in conjunction with your current job until you’re established. Once you are, pursue it full-bore.
