In an effort to make portions of this site more useful for folks who are hiring a guide for their Alaska hunt, I thought a series of posts intended to dialogue directly with them would be useful. This is the first of a series of threads designed to collect information we can use to help out our guided hunters.
This thread is not intended for commentary on Alaska's guide service, the legal aspects of guiding, the politics or anything else other than dialogue with hunters who are using or intend to use a commercial hunting guide in Alaska. All unrelated comments will be deleted.
The question for this poll is this: How do you figure out what guide service you will hire for your hunt? Please feel free to mention aspects not covered by the poll. Poll results are confidential, so your name will not be associated with your selections. Choose all that are applicable. And of course we welcome your comments in this thread, as they relate directly to the question at hand.
Thanks for your help!
