In addition to preparing for the guide’s exam, students will also become better woodsman. They will gain knowledge on a variety of subjects from map reading, navigation, boating, hunting, species identification and countless other topics. Participants will also be given a wealth of information on starting and running a guiding business which we have gained through two decades of experience.

Classes are four days in duration, Thursday through Sunday. Custom classes for small groups are available. References are always available.

Contact us for more information on our Maine Guide School.

Using written materials from the state, as well as information developed over 25 years of instruction, students are ready for the Hunting, Fishing and/or Recreation guides license examination. This 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.
