The Big Game Commercial Services Board consists of two licensed Registered Guide-Outfitters, two licensed Transporters, two private landholders, two public members, and one member from the Board of Game.
Board members are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Legislature.
Important Note For Guides Regarding Drawing Hunt Permit Applications: Some hunts require a signed guide-client agreement before or at the time of drawing hunt permit applications. For these hunts, guides must have a current GUA registration on file for all or a portion of the area prior to the client applying for the drawing hunt permit.
