What is this mandatory guides for non residents foolishness? Are the outfitters grouping together and getting greedy? Are they tired of American's coming up and out hunting them? Where is this nonsense coming from?? I have been hunting Saskatchewan for 30 years. God willing, I will hunt there another 30. Make guiding mandatory and I will buy one of my many CDN friends a guides licence. Heck, they would probably buy it themselves just so we would come up. As wonderful as the Prairie People are, I can't imagine who all this negativity towards US waterfowlers is coming from, unless it involves money and that leads us back to the guides. Sure we come up and out hunt, out scout, and out perform the few local guides we have encountered. We also get to hunt much better places than they do because the farmers and landowners can't stand the guides. Is that what is driving all this?
