I chose hunter. Why? I live to bow hunt and would be lost doing anything else. Being a hunter you could also do some of the other things as well. I would try to do multiple things such as manage your own land, hunt your own land, and then with that experience maybe write about it a little bit. Something similar to the Drury's. Lakoski's, and Kiske's. It would require less travel and more knowledge.
Id be up for the challenge!
What you have to realize, is that it's NOT what the above mentioned TV hunters know about deer hunting that makes them successful......it's their abilty to MARKET themselves that does!
I learned a long time ago that the majority of those guys don't know all any more about deer hunting that many of us here(and maybe less)....it's just that they've been able to market it to a media audience. Odds are that they would be just as successful promoting Mighty Putty or any of the other gadgets that are sold carnival sideshow style on TV. Put Billy Mays in camo, have him shill for a new kind of deer call (with Scent-Loc for an extra $40....but only if you CALL NOW!!!), and many will buy it.
Jackie Bushman (for one) is a prime example of that.
