Born in Batavia, Ohio, Hulick attended the public schools and graduated from Farmer's College, near Cincinnati. He took charge of Pleasant Hill Academy and taught two years. Hulick then studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1857. He subsequently commenced his law practice in Batavia.

During the Civil War, he enlisted as a private in Company E, Twenty-second Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry on April 14, 1861. He was appointed as an orderly sergeant and afterward was elected as the captain of his company. Hulick was discharged August 16, 1861, when the regiment's three-month term of enlistment expired.

He then served as the probate judge of Clermont County, Ohio, from 1864–1867, and served nine years on the board of education. He served as delegate to the Republican National Convention in 1868.
