    Guide Outfitters in for a tough season

    I know a lot of resident hunters think they are the enemy but I see Guide Outfitters as an integral part of the hunting landscape here in BC and I'm concerned this is going to be an awful year for them.

    Not only is the world economy taking a beating, there is a good chance the border with the USA will still be closed in August.

    I wonder if we'll see an uptick in hunts designed for resident hunters or if they will just let their territory lay fallow for the year and try and make it up next year.

    Interesting times.

    hmmmmm, wonder if residents hunting in the mountains will notice better success on sheep and goats? Less people running around in the sheep and goat country? Good luck to all you sheep/goat hunters! moosin

    Everyone in the tourism business is taking a shit kicking, including outfitters.

    My grand daughter won't be going back East forbear camp, nor north to camp this year. Cooks for an outfitter.

    yep, Now may be a good time for outfitters of the GOABC to offer up some discounted resident hunts? I mean they have the allocations why not utilize them and make some money?

    In reality its likely cheaper to take a year off. That’s what the Haida fishing lodges are doing.

    Tough times for many, especially those relying on tourists. I think the GO industry is an important part of our hunting heritage, and I sure hope it can survive

    That is what I was thinking but I wonder if they can still make money or break even at the discount that resident hunters would need. I'd like to support but the resident hunters I know that have used GOs paid a lot of money.
