As of today I am officially a licensed New Hampshire Guide. Today was the culmination of a process I began last winter as I had to get first aid and CPR certification before I could apply. There was a written test I took in the spring as well as an oral exam. I had a little trouble with the map and compass section of the exam (I’ve been depending on my Astro and now my Alpha too much) which required I retake the oral exam today. Still struggled a little bit with the map and compass stuff but passed the other parts without a problem. In fact I score a 98 out of 100 on the lost hunter scenario and I only needed a 70 to pass. (so if you come up and wander off, I know what to do to eventually find you.) I’ve been hunting Northern New Hampshire with pointing dogs for 25 years and now that I’m retired from teaching I thought it would be good to share these experiences with others. This first year I’ll be offering discounts to my training customers (a few have already tentatively booked dates) but I still have openings. I will also give discounts to anyone who mentions the blog when they contact me. You can reach me on my cell at 603-381-8763 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
