Guides on public land?

I saw this topic on another forum and was surprised to find my thoughts on the matter differed from the majority of those responding.

Should paid guides be allowed to take clients hunting on public land?

I guess you couldn't stop it, but I'm not sure he would make much of a living!

It is prohibited in some states, South Dakota for instance.

It's prohibited in PA as well on SGLs. Page 18 of the rule book Sell, distribute, deliver, service, guide or rent any equipment, material or commodity or otherwise transact or engage in any commercial activity. Such activity is when a person directly or indirectly accepts consideration of value as compensation for the provision of goods or services, including transportation. Well at least that's the way I've always read it.

Smile its contagious. Its understood in all languages.

That's the way I read it also, but I don't think it's strictly enforced. Guys need to make a living.

Catch & release is for guys who don't know how to cook

That is only for two species, elk and bobcat.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: Guides on public land?

It is enforced if the WCOs learn about it. It should be enforced as well. Can you imagine the problems guiding for hire on game lands would cause then hunters and guides and their clients clash over who is hunting an area. It s bad enough with tree stands and clashes.
