Most of you have heard that animal rights groups from Washington DC and New York are behind a ballot issue to ban the most effective means of bear hunting. Regardless of your type of guide business every one of us must be involved in defeating this issue.

For bear guides, this is a direct attack. For those who guide other types of hunters, it doesn't take much foresight to understand that these groups have long opposed all hunting and cannot be allowed to have a foothold in Maine. For those whose guide business does not include hunting, it is essential to keep the guiding business and our association healthy in Maine.

Regardless of opinions on hunting, this is an attack on member guide businesses. For that reason, your MPGA is playing a leadership role in the Maine Wildlife Conservation Council. It will take more than MPGA to win however. 

We need your help!
