I'm a med student and I know it'll be worth it eventually but it is seriously hard on the whole hunting thing right now. I had to put in for all points this year because my clinical rotations next year will be crazy busy. Then if I get into the my preferred residency, I'll be moving again and probably to the east coast or California which aren't necessarily on my list of ideal spots to live. It'll be at least eight or more years before I'm back in Big Sky country.
A good read might be "Rich Dad, Poor Dad." You don't necessarily need to take everything in the book literal about becoming uber rich, but it has solid advice about staying out of the rat race of accumulating debts and working to to pay for those debts. It's all about gaining income producing assets that will make you money without your time.
I used to fight wildland fire and the best hunting season I ever had was between undergrad and med school. After working all summer and getting a ton of OT, I spent six weeks in Montana doing nothing but hunting. I shot a six point bull in western MT, a five point buck in eastern MT, and a 14 inch antelope in the Centennial Valley, plus I hunted sage grouse, sharptail grouse, huns, pheasant, ducks, and geese and helped with other successful mule deer and whitetail hunts. It was awesome and plus fighting fire enabled me to hike around in places like Crater Lake, southern Idaho, the Mojave desert, the Arizona Strip, and the Grand Canyon (during the rut too, which was freaking awesome since we had huge bugling bulls running around our spike camp). Running saws and flying in helicopters is pretty cool too, but digging line and making mud for living can get pretty old. Plus really good fire seasons tend to run through September, which kills your archery seasons. Another aside to wildland fire is that you can scout out some new hunting spots while you're on the clock if you do it right.
