Thread: What jobs?

  1. #1

    What jobs?

    Here`s a Question, What do we all do for a job when not shooting?.
    I hope it does not come over as nosey, it`s just interesting to see what jobs and hours others do to help fund their shooting.

    I will start off if your interested.

    Ok, I work for Corus, the biggest steel makers and I work 3 and 4 days per week on 12 hour days and nights.

    Forgot to add, I do plastering on the odd occasion.

    Come on, don`t be shy.

    What Jobs

    Hi everyone, I am a Laboratory technician, working for a pharmasutical company in Oxfordshire.
    My brother and his son are gamekeepers on different estates and I beat with them during the season.
    I run the beating line and generally help out on another shoot and have the stalking there in return.

    Apprenticed aircraft engineer. Then brought a small lighting company, specialising in the optical lighting of art works. I've been at this for twenty four years and still love it. Worked for some fantastic people in beautiful places, seen some fantastic paintings/sculptures etc.
    Can't find anyone to follow me in the younger generation, very sad to think it will stop when I do. with work, for the future.

    Lorry Driver. I trained for environmental conservation work when I left the Royal Navy, but I got fed up of draughty tied cottages and crap pay! That and working with people who knew nothing about the countryside but could face paint kids and make 'eco friendly, multi cultural, lesbian and gay approved compost heaps!'

    Work shy bunch of bath dodgers!

    Buckup, that sounds like an excellent job! When I was a youngster I wanted to be a stone mason. I thought that it would be knocking out gargoyles all day! I still fancy it now.

    Trained as farm manager but now have a small online shop, do a bit of web design and hosting and also do a few odd jobs around and about. Also run school car and look after my 8 year old boy while the missus earns the main crust!

    Gives me plenty of time to do my own thing, I'm very fortunate

    I am a graduate management trainee for a large national transport company, which I got into after graduating in HRM from Lancaster Management School a couple of years ago, and have worked in Oxford and Caerphilly since then.

    Good work, and pays for the ammo! When I get the next promotion I am after a RPA!!

    What a reaction up to now guys, thanks.

    It seems that most of us would rather be doing something other than what we are doing, you know, the grass seems greener on the other side of the fence etc. I for one trained at college for a year in HNC gamekeeping and wildlife mangement but i have now accepted that that`s not going to happen. I`ve fancied lorry driving myself Beowulf, but i know that it`s just another job and a way of keeping the wolves from the door.

    I think that you are very lucky to have a job which you enjoy doing, like buckup, especially when it helps fund something else that you enjoy doing, shooting.
