I know this has been beat to death in past threads or at least I think it has but resident qualifying as a guide for a family member in the second degree of kindred rule is just plain dumb! I have a cousin who comes up every year to hunt with me and Dall Sheep his dream. He cant use me as his guide because he is my cousin. Even though he is more qualified to hunt up here and Sheep for that matter than any other person in my entire second degree of kindred family he cannot. So a guy who knows nothing about hunting can move here and soon after qualify to be a guide to his equally ignorant stepdad or father in law who are not even blood related and they can go brown bear, mountain goat, and sheep hunting. Thats just dumb! Either they need to eliminate non residents using family members as guides or they need to have an application process/test/class in order to screen who is guiding and hunting. I know this has to piss off other people on here and frankly Ive been waiting for a change in this reg but it still remains. Has anyone heard of any plans of this ever being changed? Man it just infuriates me! And so ends my rant.
