it ain't the money, it's the time
I've got a bunch of dough wrapped up in guns and accessorries, but if I saved all that money for hunts, I still could not have made them.
Unless you set your own hours, own your own business, make a ton of cash or are independently wealthy, you work for the man, who sets your hours, controls how much time you get off, when and for how long.
My Chief goes to Africa. The local LT for the DNR goes to Africa. Us 'line staff' guys go to work.
Yeah, and what time you do have you've got to juggle against responsibility and obligation to others.
I hunt hard, close to home, before and after work, normal days off. My leave gets split between my family, community stuff, and my hunting. When I was younger it drove me nuts.
It's the time.
