Job at a Pro shop
I was offered a part time job at the local proshop last night, nothing huge just some weekend help(fri,sat,sun. evenings)..... Well, i'm a full time engineer(mon-fri), and have class 8 till 4 every other weekend. Basically, I have two weekends free a month, hunting season is here, and I get offered a job. If I take this job it will put the kabosh on evening weekend hunting. What would some of you do? I took a look at my availability, a grand total of 16 days from now until Jan. 17! What are some of the perks of working at a proshop?? FYI, this is one of the best shops in the state!

if you enjoy hunting or shooting for yourself, then trust me DO NOT DO IT....I have now been on both sides of the coin and would much prefer not working in the shop....I cut things up and split them down!

I agree with bowman, I do not want anything else to take away from my time in the woods..

i am sure it would be great but it most likely is seasonal .... meanign during deer season... as for me i would rather be hunting than working.... unless the income is needed i wouldnt do it.... just my 2 cents

For me it would clearly depend on the pay and bennies.
Bad pay and little or no bennies, I'd be hunting.

The pay isn't so much a concern, but the benefits(discount), meeting other archers/hunters, and possibly finding new places to hunt, etc.... is why I am even considering the offer! We haven't discussed the finer details yet. I just hate to miss out on some good weekends to hunt, if its a seasonal position I won't consider it due to the fact, they are hiring me so they can have more time to hunt. Thanks for your input, I really appreciate it.

I guess it would depend on if I had kids at home. I don't anymore and don't have grandkids yet (thank goodness) so I might swing toward taking the job and just working through scheduling so I could hunt for a few hours once a week or so. My hunting land access fell short this year because one of my idiot buddies got into a fight with a landowner last Winter and screwed some things up. Another buddiy split from his fiance, who's father owns some land we hunted. I'm probably going to blow off opengin day/week and just wait until the weather gets cold. It's 91 fricking degrees here today.

if you dont need the money, go hunting. which would you rather do. brag about making a two color bow string or a trophy buck hanging on the wall. if you need any info about archery you can always ask here. some one will have a answer. go hunt my friend.
