Maine Guide Training & Guide License Exam Preparation
Follow Your Dream
Become a Maine Guide
Our Maine Guide School prepares you to take Maine’s
Hunting, Fishing and Recreation
Guide’s License Exam
Why take our course?
We teach from experience!
With over 30 years of experience guiding and outfitting trips throughout North and South America, as well as managing a 30-guest traditional Maine sporting camp, we know the skills you need to not only pass the Maine Guide Exam but to be successful Maine Guides. We use our experience to teach the material, not just present it.
Nearly 85% of our students pass their exam on the first try!!
Maine’s Guide License Exam is considered one of the toughest in the country. The Maine Guide licensing board sees a failure rate of first time applicants, greater than 60%. Why not put the odds in your favor?
What will you learn?
You will learn how to read a map, measure distance, and use your compass with the map and in the field.
All test candidates will be asked to identify mammals, waterfowl, fish, and even occasionally plants and trees.
Although not a topic that you will be tested on, we want to see class participants successful in their business as well as the exam. We will discuss insurance, websites, advertising, marketing, keeping clients happy & coming back, and much more.
There are more topics than we can list including firearms, fly-fishing, trapping, cold and hot weather injuries, packing gear, food storage and meal preparation, setting up a campsite, and the list goes on…
Carroll and Lila,
I passed my hunting guide test the first time! I recently went back and passed my fishing on the first try as well. Neither of these would have been possible without your class! Thanks again for all your help!
