Beginning Jan 1, 2013 I will hold the license of RG. Under my licensure I will have moose, bear, and caribou. So will be short on Goat and sheep. I have no intrest in sheep guiding currently for my own reasons. But have been trying to meet regulation 75.100 (1) (D) (iii) for goats.
"successful experience guiding sheep, moose, brown bear, mountian goat, and caribou hunts, if the applicant is seeking licensure for one of these species; the applicant must have been involved in a minimum of three harvests on a guided hunt for each of these listed species in order to be licensed for that species."
I have hit up several guides to help out on goat hunts over the years and no takers. I have even offered to work for free, even as a packer.
I have the experience as a goat hunter with 6 goats myself and well over another half dozen helping friends. But that doesn't count when trying to have Mountian Goats on my RG Lic. Also when I was tested as RG, ALL 5 species were included in the testing process.
Also looking for when this regulation was passed? It is my understanding that RG's before this are grandfathered in on all 5 species.
So my next course of action is to propose changing or ammending the above regulation. I am looking for input or ideas either way.
