Posted March 07, 2019 05:13:00 A new job is opening up in northern Alberta.
A “dream hunter” is stepping up to the plate to take on the next big challenge.
The “Hunt & Grab” hunter is hoping to catch up on all of the work that’s been done on the land.
“I have a dream job,” said Tanya Dzurkova, who works for a local fishing company.
“It’s the perfect opportunity for me to make something out of my life and to see it through.”
The dream hunter is a big outdoorsy, outdoorsy guy who wants to be able to hunt again and has an affinity for animals and nature.
The hunter has been working in the hunting business for about three years and said it’s all part of the job.
“You don’t want to just go home and do the chores and do your day-to-day,” he said.
“But the passion and the passion is the part that is so special.”
The Hunter’s Association of Alberta (HAFA) said it can only offer the “best of the best” hunters, but it also knows that the dream hunter must be passionate and able to work hard to make it happen.
“A hunter’s dream is to be on the hunt again,” said HFA CEO, Scott Warkentin.
“He needs to be passionate, he needs to work really hard and he needs someone who’s willing to step up to that challenge and really be a part of that experience.”
The hunter is looking to fill a niche that’s growing in Alberta.
The demand for hunters in the province is increasing.
“We’ve got the largest population of wild animals anywhere in the world,” said Warkrin.
“The demand for the hunter in our province is skyrocketing and we are seeing an explosion in the number of hunters we’re dealing with every year.”
The HFA has launched an online recruitment page for the Hunter’s Apprentice.
They’re asking hunters to fill out a short questionnaire.
To apply, you’ll need to fill in a short form and a picture of yourself and submit it.
You’ll have up to three weeks to apply.
