Josh’s Answer

There are colleges that have various majors available to someone wanting to work in wildlife. Some of those majors are, Wildlife Resource Management, Natural Resource Management, Forestry Management, and Fish-Aquaculture degrees. Hocking College in Ohio and Hawkeye Community College in Iowa are programs I am familiar with and it will lead you to a career in this area. This is very rewarding career that can allow you to do something everyday that you love and that makes a difference now and for future generations.

Have you looked into Geology? When I was a student, I took geology courses as my science elective because they included hikes in the area (Santa Barbara, CA). If you have the option to take classes that include trips to the outdoors it could be a great way to explore different majors before deciding on one. Good luck!

Edward’s Answer

Hello - I think you may want to consider more about what you want to do while out doors. For example you could work for a company which makes products for outdoorsmen, or for fishermen. In this type of job you may make a good salary, have benefits, growth opportunities, and learn from peers. Go to your local out door products company and explore their products and see what product you might like to help build. Then from there maybe you want to involved with marketing, sales, be a field representative, etc. For that type of job you'll be best to get a business oriented degree. Alternatively, if you really want a career in fishing and hunting, and you want to take people hunting or fishing, you will need to be a licensed (if on the water), and you will apply for a merchant mariner's license on the us coast guard web page. It comes with requirements of time on the water before you can be licensed to bring people on your boat for hire. As for hunting or fishing from land, you may want to consider being coming a licensed guide. Each state will have a license application for this. Lastly maybe just want a career that is in retail but working for an outdoors oriented company. Here in Maine, you might want to consider looking into the KitteryTradingPost.com or LLBean.com. Here in southern maine many people I know love to fish in the summer/fall and hunt in the late fall because of this there are many businesses which are oriented toward people who like to hunt/fish.
