It’s not exactly the job of the federal government to provide a safe, secure and humane hunting experience.
But the Bureau of Land Management has done its part to help ensure that there are jobs available for hunters and ranchers.
As a result, the agency is the largest employer of hunters in the country, according to a recent study by the University of Utah.
The Bureau of Livestock says it has more than 20,000 hunting and rattleback-riding employees across the U.S. and that the job is often filled by hunters or ranchers looking to build their skills.
But there’s a lot of misinformation out there about what hunters and rangers are and what the job entails.
The bureau doesn’t offer hunting training, says Lisa Schofield, who oversees the bureau’s hunting and ranching division.
We don’t even offer them hunting courses, she says.
We just offer the hunter bond program.
That’s what they do.
Schofield says the bureau offers hunter bonds for hunting, ranching, and trapping jobs, which include basic hunter safety training, basic rifle safety training and basic bow hunting and trap hunting.
The hunter bonds program was designed to give hunters the opportunity to learn the skills needed to hunt with a rifle and trap, but it’s not something you do in a classroom.
It requires the hunters to meet with the bureau at least twice a year and is also required to go through a firearms training course.
“The hunter bond is a long-term commitment,” says SchofIELD.
“If you’re not able to do it, you don’t get the training.
And if you’re unable to do the training, then you’re no longer a hunter.”
The hunter training is a lot more involved than a simple classroom, says Schoffield.
You have to have a gun, go through an obstacle course, be taught how to hunt in a trap, and then you must get your gun out and hunt with it.
“It’s a long, hard, stressful process, and we want to make sure that every hunter is ready for that experience,” she says, adding that the hunter training requires the hunter to spend about an hour a day on the job.
The best part about the hunter bonds job, says Kallstrom, is that the money goes straight to the bureau.
“It’s not a lottery,” she said.
“We are going to make a profit for you.
You’re going to spend it.”
The bureau also runs hunter training courses for both hunters and non-hunters.
Those courses cost $35 an hour, or $2,400 per year.
They include basic bow and trap shooting, as well as the hunter bonding.
The programs are open to all hunters who qualify, but only those who can meet all the requirements are eligible to apply.
The hunters have to be 18 or older and have a current hunting permit.
The hunters can’t be members of any hunting organizations.
The program doesn’t include any hunting with bow and arrow or hunting with rifles, though some hunter groups are allowed to do so.
The hunter bonds are typically offered for hunting and hunting with shotguns, but the bureau says those are not available for public hunting.
“Hunters and ragers don’t typically hunt together,” Schofild says.
“The only way you can hunt together is if you are with someone else.
So the hunter and the rager need to be part of the same group.”

Schallield says it’s the hunters and the public who are the ones who should be worried about the boar job.
“You can’t get out there and go out and get a boar and bring it in,” she explains.
“That’s the way the system works.”
