    Question Guide Requirements

    I have been looking at the regulations, but can't seem to find exactly what I am looking for. Does anyone know if you need to be a registered guide to take clients for protfit on a trapline? I have found a few outfits doing this out of Canada and sounds interesting. I'm just not sure if you are required to be a guide since there is a clear difference between hunting and trapping???

    If you take an animal under a trapping license there shouldn't a problem. You might want to check with the troopers though.

    ....or contact the Big Game Commercial Services Board (the "guide board") through their website....

    Ask direct questions to the BGCSB to receive direct answers to your question and avoid any potential wildlife or guide violations.

    i do guided trapping trips as well. you don't need a registered guide license if you are not operating as a big game guide. you do however need a state business license, bourough business license, insurance, land use permits and need to make sure any one who runs your line with you has a trapping license as well...even if they don't actually touch a trap, if they assist, hand you bait, shovel snow, hold the light..blah blah, according to the troopers they have to have a license.
    on the up side with a trapping license non res don't need a tag for wolf or wolverine since they are not required under a trapping license.
