I wont comment on that article specifically, but I will support a couple of his claims. I personally looked at buying a couple of different guide territories 6 years ago or so, here in BC, just before Grizzly hunting was closed. Once I ran the numbers, the potential returns were laughable. Without the Grizzly hunt, it would've been almost impossible to make a living. The other is that $100,000 here really isn't alot, first you lose roughly 50%-55% to income tax, then there are other forms of taxation for a total tax bill that can approach 60%+. Secondly our dollar buys only 2/3 of what a US Dollar does, so there goes a bunch more. I've got friends who are married with 2 people earning 6 figures and they are not exactly killing it. Comfortable, but certainly not heading for early retirement.
