A guide outfitter is licenced to guide resident and non-resident hunters in an exclusive guide area with clearly defined and legally described boundaries. The guide areas vary considerably in size and availability of big game species. The guide outfitter licence is issued annually. The responsibility for issuing guide licences and guiding territory certificates lies with the Regional Fish and Wildlife Managers within the Wildlife Management Regions in the province.
