You have to answer a whole lot of questions demonstrating you kind of know what you're doing and get it all notarized. Then it goes to the board of outfitters and guides and they determine if you get a license or not based on everything you sent in
    Congrats Jen!

    I still respect the way Wyoming does this more than most other states. I have guided in 10 states and Wyoming was by far the toughest to get my license in. It still doesn't weed out all the bad ones but at least you know you have someone with basic qualifications. My first year guiding I worked for a multi-state outfitter. On one hunt he sent me to New Mexico the night before opening day. I had never seen the ground and had no clue what the terrain was even like... the first two days were kind of a joke for me and the hunter. He got his bull but we were lucky for sure... Enjoy your time as a guide and don't let the pressure get to you! It can get a little stressful at times but it is definitely worth it.

    Just wondering. My neighbor was a guide here in Colorado and I don't think he had that much to do, but I may be wrong.

    Good luck, I know you'll do a great job.

    Colorado didn't even require you to be licensed when I guided there. Any Joe off the street could accept a guide job there without any requirements. That really showed in some our guides in camp...

    I'm glad you clarified that. You about opened up a discussion that really could have gotten interesting.
