For a complete list of North Dakota rules and regulations or a complete list of all guides, contact the ND Game & Fish Department.

Neither the Chamber of Commerce nor the ND Game & Fish Department can recommend one guide service over another. However, we suggest you check with the ND Game & Fish Department, to ensure the guide is licensed and/or certified. Licensed guides are North Dakota residents that have paid a fee to ND Game & Fish Department. Certified guides have also met the following requirements: proof of insurance, proof of current CPR certification and proof of First Aid certification.

Ask the guide service for the name, address and phone number of past customers that you can contact for a recommendation.
