5K is not nearly enough...50K is a good starting point! Then lets collect taxes on all the income the guides bring in.....just like the electricians have to pay! If the end user ends up seeing an increase in prices...GOOD! I have no issues with guides/outfitters as long as it is run like a business>>>BUY LAND develop it...BUY Insurance...Buy Decoys...Buy trucks...Buy your boats....Build and/or Buy a lodge...Lease land legally and pay the farmers a fair price...Lease a lake and hunt it...Pay your guides a fair wage... But don't rape PUBLIC land to pay for your hobby! Guiding on public land has been outlawed! Now lets go to work on guiding on public waters for fishing! This would include any and all waters in the State! Waterfowler27...What other states require a license or permit to guide? I know Missouri has gotten very strict on fish guides! There is a reason why these guides have settled in Kansas....Lets change that! See you at the next commission meeting!
