Default 1 Guide, 1 Spotter, 1 Driver

I have a requirement for 1 guide, 1 spotter and 1 driver for October 24, 25 and 26. The guide must have previous guiding experience and the spotter at least have previous hunting experience. This is a great opportunity to see and learn about the outfitting industry without a major commitment of time.

Per industry standards, accommodation, meals, gas, salary and tips are provided.

Call me at 403 589 0840 and check me out at www.apwp.ca if you are interested.

Thanks to those who PM'd me. I still am looking for a guide for the dates above. You just need 2 days off work and you'll get a great experience in professional waterfowl hunting.

I'm still looking for a guide. Hard to think that no one would grab a short stint for extra pocket money or experience.

Who wants to walk into a minefield ? Judging by your job descriptions, has all the potential.

It's kinda funny I think there is a guide shortage everywhere this year. Iv heard of multiple outfits through ab and sask saying to "pass the word around" that they were looking for a guide to fill such and such a time slot.
I think with the economy down as it is it's harder to take the time off regular work to go guide for a short period of time.

And the rate of actually getting paid ? I've been around a long time and that's the most common complaint I've heard.

Never said they were advertising. Just asking previous guides and people they know who have guided. I filled in for an outfit for a week a while ago which apparently has put me on the phone list haha.
