Hunting/Fishing guides are under more pressure now than they ever have been. Most paying clients these days expect guaranteed success. What some people have lost track of is that hunting ducks,geese,hogs,deer,elk ,salmon,etc, guided or d.i.y., hasn't changed in years. There are no guarantees. If you haven't excepted that by now then your in it for all the wrong reasons. What most guys don't understand is that a guided hunt is a chance to hunt private and,or public land, no matter how big or small,with an experienced hunter that knows the area, how to hunt it, and wants to share his opportunity with others.
Scout hard and daily my friend and be carefull booking hunters too far in advance. Good luck with your new guide service.
