One of the pitfalls of “guide laws” is that they boost the cost of hunting wherever they are implemented.
For example, in Wyoming a non-resident hunter who hunts in a wilderness area is required by law to hire a guide/outfitter. As a result, the best Wyoming sheep outfitters now are charging $8,000 to $9,500 for a bighorn sheep hunt. At the same time in Colorado or Nevada, where there is no such guide requirement, a similar hunt for Rocky Mountain bighorn, desert bighorn or California bighorn generally costs $5,500 to $6,500.
The next guide and outfitter written examination is Aug. 16 at 1 p.m. at the North Dakota Game and Fish Department office in Bismarck.
In addition to passing a written exam, qualifications for becoming a guide include a background check for criminal and game and fish violations; certification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and standard first aid; and employment by or contract with a licensed hunting outfitter.
