there is nothing in the regulation booklet that you get about hunting yotes in reference to guides.it says non residents need a guide for big game but nothing on varmits.can a resident act as a guide for family member or other if no money is being paid for the service?we can get a temporary guide permit from our DNR to provide guide services for others as long as no money is exchanging hands.for non family non residents the max lenght for hunt can be 7 days,for family members the permit is good for whole season.

I have a guide 1 and can take 3 hunters (I can't carry though). If you know of a good place close to the border, send me a message. Buy me lunch and pay for my gas and I'll meet you in Sackville. I'll take pics/video.

This legaleze sounds very confusing, perhaps I can simplify. A guide I is the professional style licence which entitles you to guide up to 3 clients, you are allowed to be paid for this but you are unable to hunt or fish( I think you are allowed to hook a fish for a client). A guide II which is also called a "licence to accompany" is designed for (1) friend or relative to be able to come and hunt with you.(I guess this would be the "guest" as referred to in 20(3)(d). You are not allowed to accept money for this. Any non-resident requires a licenced guide for fishing or hunting. The test is fairly simple from what I can remember when I took it 20 years ago. Name different types of trees , ask about different regulations. This test can be taken at the Dieppe office which would be the closest for your relatives "deadeyes". Not sure of the cost to take the test, the guide II licence itself is $5, I just renewed mine today. Once your relative gets this, $5 to renew, pretty good deal.

Test is now 50 questions, but it's still quite easy since all the questions are based on the contents of your fish/hunt booklet. If you know your booklet, you'll have no problem.
Very handy to have this permit when visitors want to hunt or fish, and it's cheap, too.
Call ahead to make sure a warden is in the office as I believe the test must be administered by a CO.

Looks pretty straight forward to me.

Had my Guide I many years ago, just so I had a nice hat badge. I let it expire, wonder if I can just pay the $10 for the license, and re-get it, or if I have to rewrite, which is not an issue, but takes less time.

I think it has to be within the last 10 years. Give them a call. I wrote the test 18 years ago and let it expire. Had to re-write last year.
