Which answers the question of how much land would we lose to the small wood lot owners, they are a united front at many of the MPGA meetings I have attended. Also Maine trail riders association, MSA, campground owners association, Maine potato growers, as well as Wyman blueberry farm, who controls tens of thousands of acres. Its crazy how the guides gets the bulk of the 'blame'.

And don't forget our season would get shorter. To compensate for the extra days of legal hunting, we'd need to open later, close earlier, or have a longer closed season for the split.

Lots of people actually think, what I am assuming you thought, that NMW is only there to control access. Controlling access is only a part of what they do.

That one doesn't even make sense??????????? Why would the guides want a day off especially in the middle of hunting season??? You need to make your money when it's there to be had..... There are plenty of days off available in Feb and March!! The toll booths aren't exactly clogged with sports looking to employ the thousands of Maine Guides then!
