I guided for a couple of years before moving to Alaska 40 years ago, if that counts.
I greatly respect the ethical guides of the world, and have nothing but contempt for the bad actors.
As for the guiding itself, they earn every cent and still fall short in my book. There's not enough money in the world to make me want to do it again.
I'm just not cut out for dealing with rich folks trading money for trophies. Gimme the common man any day, the guy who can seldom afford a guide and truly earns every trophy. That's real hunting.
Thats awesome! Hearing that enthusiasm after four decades says alot about a guy and what he chose to spend his life doingbeen doin it for 39 years. best job in the world. gettin paid to camp and hunt in the awesome wilderness of Alaska. 60 now and hope I can keep on keepin on!
Don't like the new job but it's consistent at least. .
