This is probably a dumb question but I have to know. Why are Guided hunts so expensive? I will admitt, I'm from the south and I never really heard about guides before untill I got to Alaska. I'm use to buying a hunting license and going in the field and sitting in a tree stand for deer. I know that it is probably not that easy up here but I was looking and even for a deer hunt in Alaska it would still be more than 3 months pay. And I don't even want to talk about a grizzly bear or sheep hunt prices. I know for some people its probably easy to pay for a hunt, but just wondering why its so pricey. I am in the Military and I would not trade my job for nothing in the world but money don't grow on trees. I've been studing the Regulation book and doing my homework for two years now and no hunting yet, so I'm hoping this year it will all pay off. Thanks for the website, it has tons of valuble information, and also thanks to the members for the reply's of wisdom since I've been a member.
