In the case of Washington State the "cure" would be far worse than the disease.

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

I was listening to the radio and the sportsman report out of Wenatchee had a discussion about how there is no fishing guide association in this state. One seems likely to developed because there are several issues they are concerned with.

Ok, I see both sides here I dont want more gov reg either.
But as a lic. Outfitter and Guide. through the FS I sure would like to get rid of all the non lic outfitters that work my areas. I can report them and all they get is a letter in the mail if that even. I have giving names to the FS AND NOTHING has been down about it. So I guess I would have to be for it. It also would be easier hiring guides for the season, if they come up with the right qualifications for Big game guides. But you are right with the prices going up, they would have too. If things dont change in wa st soon, I will be heading to a st where it is required and buying an outfitter out. Preferable Wyoming where they try and work with the outfitters. Just my opinion as an outfitter. oh one more thing if they do require guides to be lic. Then the Outfitters should get a couple Guaranteed tags also, if land owners get them why not an outfitter ? Again just my opinion.

I got the message.
