Maine has licensed Guide’s for well over a hundred years. Registered Maine Guide’s have long been regarded as among the finest and most competent woodsmen anywhere. The Maine Guide’s license has a long history and our patch is recognized nationally.
Maine’s first documented guides were native Americans, who led Benedict Arnold on his ill-fated march up the Kennebec River Valley and on to Quebec City. The late 1800’s saw the first “boom” of the Maine sporting camps and Maine Guide’s were very much a part of that period and the development of Maine’s recreational industry. Rangeley, the Dead River area, and the Moosehead Lake area were three of the first areas to see the emergence of Maine Guide’s, with Eastern Maine to follow.
To this day, Maine Guide’s are very much a part of Maine’s outdoor recreational industry, and continue to provide their customers with a safe, legal, quality experience.
