Hello Folks! New to the forum, but I have been reading posts for quite some time. This thread struck my interest so I thought I might add to it. I have been fortunate enough to make my living as a wildlife biologist in western SD for the past 3+ years now. I'm certainly not getting rich in this profession but I get to spend every working day on the prairies I grew up on working with private landowners to create or enhance habitat for the benefit of the critters, and it's the most rewarding I have ever done (not to mention all the scouting opportunities)! I get to spend a fair amount of time in the field, however I have been blessed with a loving and understandable wife and 2 wonderful young kids so it's not as much as I had once hoped. My wife and son both hunt and although my daughter is only 3 says she can't wait to go either so I guess life ain't too bad-unless they all share my dreams for dall sheep hunts!
