Hunting guides are skilled huntsmen who are extremely knowledgeable in the areas of hunting and tracking, as well as the region in which they are leading excursions. But sometimes, hunters can be brash in not wanting to hunt with a guide, feeling confident hunting in unfamiliar land. Sometimes, those hunters will soon find out this can be more difficult than they think. Not to worry though, our quail and turkey guides are always there when you need them.
Here’s a few reasons to hunt with a guide.
Familiarity — A great time to enlist the help of a hunting guide is when a hunter, or group of hunters, are going to be out in unfamiliar territory or when seeking prey that the hunter doesn’t normally hunt. Guides know the best spots to find prey, they are knowledgeable about the land and other factors about the environment that can affect the hunt.
Well Trained — You might be an experienced hunter, but it’s not your full-time job. Guides have more experience and know what it takes to handle all types of situations such as injury, animal attacks, unpredictable weather and more.
Ensure Success — While the role of a guide is vast, primarily, the guide should be able to locate game and get the hunter close enough for the shot. The guide needs to have a thorough knowledge about the animal he is seeking. Having the hunting dogs sure help too!
Teacher — A hunter should consider a guide to be a mentor, or someone from which to learn. Finding a guide with excellent people skills is a plus. The guide is getting paid for his services in the wild. He should not only help the hunter get his trophy, but he should be sociable to help make the hunting experience a memorable and enjoyable one. At the least, you’ll come home an more knowledgeable hunter.
