best time for British Columbia Mule Deer Hunt

Makwa, yeah I work at one of the mines during the rest of the year. Can't quite support a family on guides wages. I don't really guide for the money, mostly for the experience and the people you meet.

Model 88, I hear ya. Most guys that guide need to have a real job to make ends meet. Not many guys get hired on a year round basis. Maybe one in a hundred.

I know some outfitters now that totally rely on guides who take their annual leave from work for two or three weeks and go and guide. It is OK for the single guys but the married guys tend to catch a lot of flack for obvious reasons. Yes

You can only pay the rent so many times with binoculars, gps etc (tip)
