    Yea or nay? Should it be legal for outfitters to operate on public land in South Carolina?

    Does this include guided fishing?

    Yes if licensed guide and pay for their hunting license. Why not question if a guide should be able to guide on public waterways.

    I would say yes. They pay taxes and buy licensees like the rest of us. They should be held to a higher reporting standard like fishing guides are though. They also should get no preferential treatment. Joe blow hunting before work has the same right to be there.

    I don’t see why not. Public resources are used for private profit every day.

    As someone who has lived in a state where outfitters make their living on public lands the majority of the time, I’m saying “no”. You think claiming spots are bad from your every day peckerhead? Try dealing with guides… and then the guides/outfitters eventually lock arms and start bossing around the DNR/Game & Fish depts, then it becomes “the state owes them x, y, and Z”, etc etc.

    wasnt it the guides that bitched about the blue catfish harvest on Santee Cooper and got the limit of big blues enacted?

    I said no for the same reasons that we can't kill 27 ducks at night over a March corn pile with a 4 gauge shotgun. Hunting is a regulated activity.

    If that is the bar to hurdle then any taxpayer who buys a hunting licence would then be able to go to any WMA and set up a Frisbee Golf Course and charge people to come play, or what IS happening already, guided Forest Bathing....

    They did but they were part of the problem.

    Pure hypocrisy to make hunting guides illegal on public land and continue to allow fishing guides to operate on public water....

    Nope

    I think guiding for waterfowl should not be allowed on private land either.
    Public migratory resources should not be exploited by a few for profit.

    Is that really a fair comparison? Can you find me some private water that I can go and catch some cobia or a dolphin? I don't think we can compare a fishing guide to a public land hunting guide...... Comparing those two is like comparing a corn field to a pile of corn......
    “Duck hunting gives a man a chance to see the loneliest places …blinds washed by a rolling surf, blue and gold autumn marshes, …a rice field in the rain, flooded pin-oak forests or any remote river delta. In duck hunting the scene is as important as the shooting.” ~ Erwin Bauer, The Duck Hunter’s Bible, 1965
