    For extra money I'll do electrical work, tractor work like plant food plots, till gardens, grade dirt or gravel, bush hog, excavate trenches, remove trees and stumps. Have dump truck will haul stuff and plow snow. It does not seem like I am retired.

    I used to fix computers/remove viruses but now I reload 223/5.56 for friends with ARs. Don't "sell" it but donations are appreciated

    I manage wildlife, run feeders, plant food plots and run trail cameras.


    The rest of the time I work as a professional gambler farming. I also still do some custom earth moving construction work and brush clearing, marsh and wetland development and I keep bees but that has gotten extremely difficult. Too many problems with keeping bees to make a living at it. It's more of one of those hobbies that just eats money and time because it's something you like to do.

    I've got a few ideas I'd like to try just to see if I can lose money any faster than I already do. Sometimes I think I need a tourniquet and a heavy dose of coagulant just to stop hemorrhaging money as it is. :lol: But here's a list of things I'm interested in.

    I'd kind of like to build gaming computers. Fancy high dollar and grossly overpowered ones. Water cooled, cutting edge tech, custom cases, etc.. I think it'd be fun but the consumers that can afford those are probably already building their own.

    Livestock..this is sort of more of a thing that will happen eventually anyway. Specifically cattle.

    Specialty crops for feed. No one here grows oats, barley, millet, sunflowers, etc...

    Closely related to the previous one. Seed production and sales for cover crops and food plots. Another thing that is likely to happen in the not too distant future.

    Refurbishing equipment and flipping it. I like salvaging old tractors and vehicles and seeing them get to live another useful life.

    Training bird dogs, maybe field trial dogs too. I've always been partial to bird hunting...hence my screen name and I love dogs more than about anything besides maybe deer.

    Custom trucks and UTV's. I think it would be a blast to buy new vehicles and Shelbyize the crap out of them and resell them as a custom badged version. There are insane aftermarket upgrades to everything these days. Problem is kind of the same as with the gaming PC idea, lots of high dollar input and limited consumer base.

    Pimping...I mean think about it, cool rides, plenty of...uhm... women, lots of cash and dope...sounds like the thug life for me.:lol:

    You don't really expect to make money on any of those things do you?

    Sure, I make a crap load of money, the problem is everyone around me makes more off my labor than I do. :lol:

    I do love sports... I don't make much but it's better than nothing. I started with $100 on each site and I've made close to $1000 combined through the first 9 weeks.
