About Us

For over 30 years, Fins & Furs Adventures Maine Guide School has prepared successful applicants for the Maine Guides License Exam.

Preparing Successful Maine Guide’s License Candidates for over 30 years

Fins & Furs Adventures, Maine Guide School is the longest-running program in the State, with 2024 marking our 34th year. Over the past three decades, we have seen thousands of students, many of who now run very successful Guide businesses.

In addition to preparing for the guide’s exam, we enjoy watching class participants grow their confidence and skills and become better woodsmen. Participants will also be given a wealth of information on starting and running a guiding business which we have gained through three decades of experience.

Carroll and Lila Ware are both Master Maine Guides with over 30 years of experience guiding hunters and fishermen. In addition to their Maine guide preparation classes, they have enjoyed helping others travel and pursue outdoor sporting adventures. Through their hosted adventures, they have led dozens of hunting and fishing groups to destinations throughout North and South America.
