I've got a few requests out but figured I should check here as well.

 

Does anyone know if there is an Outfitters Association in NS?

 

I'm pretty sure there used to be, I think....but I can't find it.

 

I'm not looking for a guides association....I'm wondering if there is one for licensed outfitters.

not aware of any in NS. Have you tried the Canada Outfitters Org - I spoke to someone from there couple years ago when I was looking into an away trip.

yup I knew that...Ive been in contact with them....but a guide is much different than a business that can lodge and feed paying customers. 

 

I just want to know what the current regulations are....I know 20 years ago they were a nightmare for a small mom and pop business. 

 

In fact, its one of the reason I got out of guiding bear hunters.  But I have a slight interest in it again.

 

There were ways around the laws....but I wanted to do it right and 100% legit.....but it was tough with all the laws regarding lodging and providing meals...

What a nightmare just trying to find what I am legally required if I want to host paying hunters with lodging and meals.  

 

welcome to nova scotia I guess lol

If I remember correctly it used to fall under the Dept of Tourism and basically you had to meet the same requirements as a bed and breakfast on top of the guide requirement.

Golden Eye Guide Service (Brian & Mary Mason) in East Pepeswick may be able to point you in the right direction. I know he still brings in a few customers for sea duck hunting each year.

 

Good Luck
