Mt. Blue RSD Franklin County Adult Basic Education


with Carroll Ware


Join us for a four day course that will fully prepare you to confidently enter the state's testing and licensing process for hunting, fishing and/or recreation. Carroll Ware from Fins and Furs in Skowhegan will be leading the course, which is the longest running in the state. Maine is considered one of the toughest states to obtain a license, with a first-time failure rate exceeding 60%. However, roughly 85-90% of the students in Carroll's class succeed in passing in the first round. Using written materials from the state, as well as a curriculum developed over 25 years, the course builds top notch map and compass proficiency, and equips students to react quickly and efficiently during stressful situations, such as a lost client or medical emergency. In addition, student become better woodsman by gaining knowledge on navigation, boating, hunting, species identification and countless other topics. Students will also be given a wealth of information on starting and running a guiding business.


So Carroll at Fins & Furs in Skowhegan will be teaching his guide training course (the longest running in the state!) March 1, 2, 3 and 4 2018 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The course will cost $425 per person (which is the cheapest in the state too!) and a 50% deposit is due by Feb 1. 

Please call Franklin County Adult Education for more information and to sign up.
