Maine Guide School Training Program – August 1-4th
Maine Guide School & Training Program
Thursday August 1st, 2019 thru Sunday, August 4th, 2019.
Join us at Chandler Lake Camps and Lodge in the heart of the North Maine Woods for a unique opportunity at a living classroom to prepare you for the rigors of the Maine Registered Guide Testing Process. This course will give you all the necessary tools and knowledge to pass the exam and earn your “patch”!
“A Maine Guide’s License is not easily obtained, so it must be understood that “the patch” should not be taken lightly. As Master Maine Guides, we understand the business of guiding and believe it is unlikely anyone can be “taught” to be a guide. That is something that comes from the heart. Throughout history, Maine Guides have been revered as as some of the most knowledgeable and proficient woodsman in North America. This tradition began in the late 1890’s when the Maine legislature required all hunting guides to be registered with the state. It is a symbol with an honorable history. Wear it proudly!”
“Our Guide School is the longest running program in the State, with 2019 marking our 27th year. Over the past two decades we have seen thousands of students, many who now run very successful Guide businesses. We typically see a 85%-90% success rate from our first-time applicants.”
