It’s the most challenging job in the industry, requiring a combination of skills and experience that are uniquely Canadian.
For some, it’s even more rewarding.
The jobs of a hunter are well known.
And they pay well.
In a survey by the National Post last month, hunters received $4.47 an hour.
Hunters also get to hunt and fish in other provinces, and the hunt is often considered one of the most profitable jobs in Canada.
Hunter’s jobs are often the biggest in Canada, according to a recent survey of employers by The Post and The Globe and Mail.
They make up about 30 per cent of all hunting jobs in the country.
It’s not a job for the faint of heart.
There are strict rules, including a ban on using a bow and arrow in the hunt, and it requires a lot of self-discipline.
“You’ve got to make sure you’re doing what you’re supposed to do.
And that means you’re taking good care of yourself,” said Mark Sturgess, an instructor and former Canadian hunting instructor who has taught hunters in Ontario and British Columbia.
Sturgess said hunting in the province of British Columbia is especially tough.
Hunting in B.C. can be grueling, and that’s where hunters like Sturgesses come in.
He’s a hunter himself, but he has an extra job: teaching people how to hunt.
“It’s really about being able to understand the skills that you need to know how to shoot and how to do it correctly,” he said.
It all starts with a bow, he said, and some hunting skills are more important than others.
He uses a spear to hunt, but in the early days he learned how to use a hunting knife, too.
He also learns how to handle his bow and arrows.
Sturdess said it’s a hard job, but it’s worth it to him.
“The hunters are a great group of people,” he told the Post and the Globe and the Mail.
“They work together, they share their time together, and they share the success that they get out of it.”
The job is tough, but if you have a good attitude, a great job and the right mindset, it can be a rewarding one.
