If you have yet to experience what it is like to hunt with a guide, you are missing out. A guide is not an expert who runs the show; a guide is a person who embarks on the experience of a hunt alongside you and shares his or her own tips and tricks, and puts you in the best position for success.
A hunting guide often has many years of experience and great advice to offer when you need it or request it. Usually guides are tied to a specific area where they have become very proficient in monitoring animal behavior and habitats. By sharing this knowledge with you, your chances of a successful hunt are greatly increased.
A good guide is not only someone who will take you to the best hunting spots, but he or she is also great company. A guide who is good at his or her job is one who won’t make the experience any less thrilling. Hunting can be an all-day event and the last thing you want is to be stuck with someone who does not engage in conversation.
One of the best ways to find the right hunting guide for you is word of mouth. By asking around, you will get advice on who is good and who is not. Personal opinions are a surefire way to narrow down selections and you can also ask about lodging accommodations, prices, equipment offered and so on.
Lastly, do some interviewing yourself. While it is a good idea to get perspective from other people, you will want to actually speak to the guide ahead of time. This will avoid any awkwardness and you will be able to ask questions before hunting day arrives.
