Where can I find a hunting guide?
July 18, 2011, QUESTION: I drew a quota hunt permit for general gun, in the Church Lake Unit of the Ocala National Forest. I'm wondering if anyone with local knowledge would like to be a guide, and earn a little extra money? I have a quota hunt permit for November 26, 2011 through December 6, 2011. I live several hundred miles away, so scouting would be difficult. Is there a guide, with local knowledge that might be interested in providing his services? Thanks.
ANSWER: For those of you who find yourself in Joe's position, looking for local knowledge, outfitters, or guides, in a specific area, I would recommend that you contact the local Chamber of Commerce in the area where you will be hunting. You may, also, want to check out this link from the FWC website for a list of outfitters and guides:
I hope this helps. Good luck with your hunting!
