    What does it cost a year for waterfowl guide/outfitter to be licensed in ND? Res vs. NR? What other major requirements?

    So is a NR guide limited to actually hunting (carrying a gun and shooting at waterfowl) for 14 days or do they get to do that all season long ??

    I think Canada has a rule where guides are not allowed to possess a gun in the field. Be a good one in ND too.

    pretty sure NR guides have the same rules on when they can hunt, had one of my charter captains work over there a few years ago and that was the way it was.
