Hi to all, many may think that the danger of a guide’s trade comes down to working around firearms that are manipulated not always in a safe manner by all kinds of hunters. In my case, and I can certainly testify for other friends of mine who are also guides, a danger as important if not more is the number of hours spent on an ATV in all kinds of possible situations and conditions, often with too much material. Here is one proof: That particular morning, the forest road was on ice and I did not succeed in climbing the hill with the trailer, so I came back down the hill by rolling over. Conclusion, more back problems and a knee messed up for a few days. The other principal danger is linked with tree-stand installations.
Have a good day. Louis
