A paper route would pay better. A lot better.
Yes it would, but a paper route is no where near as fun as hunting. I would rather do something I love for cheap, than almost anything I hate for a lot more money.
Money isn't the great motivator for me as it is for most other men. As long as I have enough to do what I want, (Single Male) I'm a happy camper.
I'm not saying that trapping will make you enough to survive, but if I'm shooting it anyways, might as well let my hobby try to break even. Lord knows with what I spend there is no way I'm ever turning a profit haha.
