    I believe they are charging that much because they are paying for the land they are taking guys out on...they have to "buy"
    up the land so they have enought to hunt on a regular basis...I dont pay for land and have literally thousands of acres to do so...christmas time my farmers get gift bags suited for him and her and are more then happy most of them refuse it but I leave it anyways...I have taken guys out for $$ before why not as mentioned before I have shelled it out for dekes and fuel and what not I would just put it back into my gear and dogs...

    Thanks for rubbing it in ! I have sufficient land for deer and i take care of the owners too you have to. Goose is a different game it requires more scouting more work over all. I have not done any effort for a goose hunt as i only do it a once or twice a year. Anyway good luck this year!

    I currently hunt with guides who hunt 6 days a week take minimum of 6 people and shoot their limit every day. Those guys charge $ 80 / person and I am completely happy with my setup and have been hunting with them for over 2 years.

    There was a guy of this caliber in Brampton too he just does not hunt anymore this is why I posted.
    (AND IMO only newbies go with guides seasoned hunters have their own equipment and resources ...)

    I guess most of you are happy spending 400+ on single goose hunt.
    Who are the guides you currently hunt with and which ones have you hunted with in the past????

    You get what you pay for .
    Most reputable guides with insurance and licences are charging anywhere from 250 to 400 per hunt .
    Especially Milton Toronto area , to is like pulling teeth to line up land , i spent two weeks in Milton knocking on doors and only got 3 farms to hunt ,

    Mojo who is your insurance policy with when you guide what liability coverage do you have and who is listed as third parties on your policy ?
    Didnt know you had to have a guides licence in ontario ?
    Dont you guide for Delainey ? Does he have insurance you are listed on ?
    I know what we need for dog clubs and events I can imagine insurance would not be cheap ? That could jack the price up. Per hunt.

    Pm has been sent to ya .
    We have great liability insurance , which Delaney carries. I am listed on .
    as for guide licence you are correct Ontario doesn't offer nor inforce guide licences , but we are all licenced in different provinces to guide. So we are licenced guides not a fly by night guide business

    OK I know I'm slow late at night but I think I got it. Seems to me that a bunch of guys who hunt, take out people who have no access to land and charge them $150, that is NOT guiding, when I go on a guided hunt, I pay a respectfull amount considering that this "job", is the guides means to make a living, but I expect to be treated like a valued customer, a customer who can decide whether or not to come back, whether or not to recommend the guide to anyone else.....what tip to leave etc etc.

    I have some very generous friends that I enjoy to hunt with, but I don't pay them cash.....they are not running a sideline business, sure we can all help with expenses and help to remunerate land owners, but I believe, with the flash in the pan popularity that waterfowling is receiving right now, there are a lot of people who really don't know what a guide does, or is capable of, if at least they are considering themselves "guides"....

    I have no problem with guys willing to pay $150 for a hunt if they can't or won't put some effort in time or equipment, in order to tag along with someone already going on a hunt, but DUDE! That's NOT a guide or guiding.....

    Time for a new verse of Duckstar!!!
