I think its important to help others achieve their career dreams and find success when we can. Sometimes this is easy, you just make an introduction. Other times, not so much, you might need to tutor someone along as several have done with me.
Several years back I hunted with a passionate young man with a strong back, sharp mind and a great personality. We we after free-rage aoudad in West Texas. I was fighting a chest cold and was grumpy but he put up with me and in the end we took a nice animal. The young man’s name is Josh Cox and for his age he has extensive field experience. His eagerness, attention to detail and desire to be a part of the outdoor industry makes him an attractive candidate.
Somebody in some outdoor related company should give this fellow a chance.
He is currently working as a heavy equipment operator and aquatic plant specialist in Winston Salem, NC but his experience includes work as a wildlife specialist with the USDA Wildlife Services, as an outfitter and cowboy in Kansas, as an elk guide in Colorado, a wildlife manager and guide in Apline, Texas and Mexico, work as a deer, elk, moose and black bear guide in Canada and as a wrangler in Wyoming. He is also 3/4s of the way toward a bachelor’s degree in agriculture.
Most importantly, he has great people skills and that often missing but valuable thing called common sense.
