There are now more than 2,000 registered Maine Guides, and a backlog of applicants to take the oral examination. Aspiring guides must understand regulations, learn the principles of outdoor techniques and memorize species identification. After taking a written test, an oral exam is taken before a seven-member testing board. The Maine Legislature in 1897 enacted a law requiring hunting guides to register with the state, and two years later there were 1,700 licensed guides. A person might be a guide in the categories of hunting, fishing or recreation, and a master guide is registered in all three categories.
Guides for hunters, fishermen, etc
