A good friend of mine is considering getting a trasporters license, however in speaking to insurance companies regarding liability matters it seems as somewhat of a daunting idea. While we strive to see the good in people, the reality is that there are alot of pretty shady folks out there and you could lose everything you own with one simple incident.
For anyone that has, or had, a transporter license - or even been licensed as an outfitter or guide, what has your experience been with folks? Good, bad, otherwise? In speaking with others in the business, have most folks been lucky enough to avoid this kind of trouble?
We know a few guys who used to be fishing guides years ago; it was a short career, not due to lack of business, just lifestyle changes. They never ran into any trouble with their clients short of having to deal with the drama queens. :-P
