All classes of guides should; most likely, be licensed and regulated but currently only hunting guides are 'licensed and regulated'.
Could there be some legitimate reasons to support restructuring the current occupational guide licensing system to include all classes of guides under one roof?
All things considered it seems taking this type of action would be in the best interest of the public.
The public who engages the services of a "guide" would have some assurance that the person who sold them a guided trip has been 'vetted' by the state and is accountable to an occupational licensing board and conducting their business under standard practices established by regulation.
Taking such action would put all classes of guides who benefit from commercial use of state/federal lands and resources at the same table.
Taking such action would increase revenues to the state.
Taking such action would end subsidizing the current 'guide board' (Big Game Commercial Services Board).
