    Default Putting gua's up for bid

    Anyone have any info on the plan to go back to exclusive gua's by putting them up for bid. From what I'm hearing, a way to try and make this happen is in the works.

    Default State land Guide Concessions...

    Lawdog...that former thread had been hijacked to become a Guide Concession Area topic . The few of us who participated expressed what we think we might know about the upcoming Guide Concession Area lease concept. My hope is that somebody with more specific, updated knowledge will contribute to this new thread....

    Default The large operators think this....

    scheme will benefit themselves, but watch how fast it turns around on them. Cabelas and the like have the money to sponsor guides and out bid anyone. Other big operators that get their way will have a struggle getting assistant guides because their making it harder to get your license; and why go into it with little hope of ever getting registered and/or having a place to guide? The prices will jump and lower 48ers like me, will hunt Canada. It's closer and can be cheaper. The problem I see is that you have a group of people that are so bent on getting things their way-plus their not really that smart, so they are blind to the consequences of what their doing. As stated in the previous thread, I think it's time for all small operators to band together on this one. If you think you have a prayer of getting a piece of the pie from the guys at the top- dream on.

    Question Please Clarify

    Base on lawdogs post, am I correct this is about outside guides coming to Alaska to set up shop or is it about big corporations such as Cabalas hiring Alaskan guides to work for them?


    Or am I missing the whole point here?

    Default Guides on state land...

    ....it is not just concerned with "out of state guides", and it has nothing to to with hunt-booking agencies like Cabelas. It specifically concerns licensed AK guide/outfitters providing commercial guiding services on state owned lands with in AK...

    Thanks Dennis. Please forgive my ignorance on this subject. Does this then concern the assignment of State lands to guides and outfitters?
