During the late 70's I wasted my youth getting educated (beyond my intelligence level) when i should have been taking advantage of those high nutria prices full time.

I have never watched an episode of Yellowstone and never will as long as the environmental activist Kevin Costner has anything to do with it.

But I do like to listen to this song.

Bunny hugger alert! Under required qualifications, it says you must remain neutral as to whether predators are good or bad! Nuff for me!

I don’t think this is your typical ranch hand job. This is a nonprofit org funded through grants and I’m sure they have an agenda. They are focused on grizzley and wolf interactions with livestock and one of the requirements is that you have to be able to remain neutral on whether predators are good or bad.

Pretty country. Pretty much on your own clock, stock willing.
I can think of a lot of worse ways to spend a season, some of them I’ve experienced. A summer in the saddle in an area like that is like a good day of fishing, the Lord doesn’t count it against your time here.

Predators aren't good or bad... They're just fulfilling their role in the natural way of things. I figure that's about as neutral as it gets.

I'm so neutral on the issue that I can quote you the above statement all day long while I'm clicking dogs into night latches or closing the bolt on a rifle... I'm just fulfilling my role in the natural way of things too.

Mike I have a feeling that’s not what they meant by being neutral. I like your reply though.

When its says you must stay till October it means others in the past got fed up with the bs and quit early. Definitely not a cowboy job. More of a babysitter for a bunch of tree huggers and there predators. In other words they set around drinking expensive coffee and coming up with hair brain ideas and your their flunky that has to go try and do them day and night. And when they don't work its your fault because you didn't do it like they thought it should have been do while discussing it in a board room.Lol
