Issued on 27th March 2017

 
Would you like to stay in an outfitter without spending a dime and even better, be paid to do so. Yes it's possible. The fishing season is fast approaching and many outfitters in the Mauricie are looking for passionate outdoor enthusiasts as well as hunting and fishing for full-time and part-time positions. What is better than a job meeting nature lovers and making sure their stay in an outfitter is unforgettable.
 
Here are some jobs that could be offered to you:

Housekeeping attendant

Obviously, the tasks can vary from one outfitter to another. Last summer, I worked part time in an outfitter near La Tuque. Guess what, I loved the experience and I plan in returning to work there this summer. I met some great people that were happy to be fishing. The atmosphere was amazing with it's quiet and peaceful environment.
