If you could earn a living doing what you love most, what would it be, and how would it change the world? Describe the specific goals you would set to make that dream a reality.

Hunting is my favorite hobby and I would love to be able to turn it into my career. I have been raised with hunters and I have made the most memories hunting with family and friends. I have had the fortune to gain many friends that I now consider family.
I understand that many people do not agree with hunting because they consider it to be killing God’s creatures. This is the stance that I would take to try to change the world because hunting manages the wildlife population. I would attempt to educate the population on the importance of hunting. Hunting benefits many people. For example, farmers benefit because wildlife damages their crops, which can cost them a tremendous amount of money. It also keeps wildlife predators within manageable limits. If the predators were allowed to keep multiplying, they would damage or possibly eliminate some species.
I also understand that gun control is a real issue in today’s world. But, most crimes aren’t committed by hunters; they are committed by criminals who are able to obtain guns through illegal means.
Hunting has been losing its popularity over the years and I would love to turn that trend around through education and experiencing the joy of being in the outdoors. I understand that this is an extremely controversial topic and it would be difficult to change the minds of many people, but I believe that hunting is necessary and I would love to be able to hunt professionally.
