A few years ago, I was working in a small, family-run hunting operation.
The people who run it were all women, and they were all in their late 20s or early 30s.
The business is run by a retired couple who have been hunting since the 1960s.
They’d had a lot of success over the years, and the family has always done well financially.
I’m an accountant, and I’d heard that a hunting career was a great way to start a family.
They also told me that hunting was an attractive career option because, in some cases, it was better than a good-paying occupation for men.
So, for a while, I started looking into the topic.
And, well, I wasn’t completely sold on it.
I was surprised by the amount of work that women do in the industry, how little they pay, and how often they’re treated like second-class citizens.
And then, in 2014, I discovered a new study on the topic, titled The Hunting Industry’s War on Women.
The study was conducted by a research group at the University of Texas, Austin, that studied the careers of more than 5,000 female hunters.
The researchers looked at what kinds of jobs women were offered, what jobs were paid well, and what they were asked to do.
The results surprised them: Women were paid significantly less than men, in part because they were paid less than other jobs.
This is true of hunting, as well.
In 2015, women made up just 5.5 percent of the hunting workforce, but they made up nearly 40 percent of hunters.
In 2016, that figure was up to 54 percent.
The authors of the study didn’t name the women who participated, but in a follow-up email, the researchers explained that it was the majority of the population who were being paid less.
What made this study interesting is that it found that, in general, hunters were not paid as well as they were expected to be, and that this gap in pay is because of the ways that hunting is organized.
This study found that women were paid just 5 percent of what they’d be expected to earn.
The women were asked not to say anything about the reasons for their lower pay.
The report notes that these women were often asked to participate because they’d been asked to work under certain conditions.
The conditions included: hunting at an unsafe location, being given the job of a woman, or being asked to take a job that had a lower pay rate than other positions.
These conditions were not limited to hunting.
For example, in 2018, the United States Forest Service paid female hunters less than their male counterparts for similar work, but the women were still paid less for the same work.
The Forest Service also made it harder for women to move up in the ranks.
For instance, it’s illegal for a woman to become a ranger, even if she has a hunter’s license, and it’s not required that women be trained in the job.
Women were also not paid equally in the hunting industry.
According to the study, the majority were paid slightly less than the average male hunter, and women were also paid less in the business than men.
The difference between the pay for men and women is so significant that it can make a huge difference to the money a woman makes in a hunting operation, said Lori LeBlanc, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress who conducted the research.
When the women participated in the survey, they were not asked what the pay would be like if they had the same career opportunities that the men did.
Instead, they said that they were willing to work on their own and take on additional tasks to make up for the lower pay they received.
LeBlan said that it’s important to remember that this was just one study, and she doesn’t think that this kind of research will lead to any changes.
In the meantime, there are plenty of ways for women who want to get into the industry to get the job they want.
Some hunters prefer to work at night, while others prefer to hunt at dawn and dusk.
And some hunters are even able to find full-time work after graduation.
