Last Date to Apply
We operate Elam Woods Whitetails in Baskin, La., just south of Monroe. We are looking for three female interns to work with my wife and daughter raising and bottle feeding whitetail deer fawns for the summer of 2021.
We begin mid-May and run thru the end of July. You will live on the ranch in our lodge (4 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, living area) with two other female interns with all meals and lodging furnished. You will have no expenses while here.
Our home is also on the ranch about ½ mile from Lodge. Salary is $500 weekly thru payroll check.
You will be bottle raising fawns, giving medications, vaccinations, record keeping, general farm duties, and work with our vet on-site, but primary duties will be raising around 70 whitetail fawns on the bottle.
A student with a love of fawns.
Let me know if you or your friends would be interested. Please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and questions. along with a resume. I will then send further details.
We have done this the last twelve summers with students from LSU, Mississippi State, Alabama, Arkansas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, La Tech, and Ole Miss and Tennessee.
This will be a fun summer job, you will learn a lot, and you will certainly fall in love with these little fawns. You will get a couple of breaks during summer to travel if needed, however, once we start a fawn on the bottle we are fully committed to raising it until weaning.
We will work around your school schedule for the beginning and end of the summer work. Please contact me if interested and I will send you more information about the summer. If you know of other students that might be interested in this position please forward this to them too.
