Just curious...

How do you guys/gals make a living when you're not hunting? I am a part owner of an electrical company that coordinates/manages electrical installations all across the US for large retail. I've got some of the best folks that I work with and even get to hunt with one of them.

Dispatch, Customer Service, Freigh Quotes, Cargo Survey (when needed), and part-time psychologist. You folks haven't lived until a few drivers call in with some of their problems and constant belly aching, so I get to play Dr. Mailman from time to time.

Of course I try and squeeze all that in between my postings on TBH!!!
