    That Clown is right.

    Well you have a long way to go. And to get there you need to educate yourself and get experience about the great outdoors of Alaska. There are many courses the University of Alaska Fairbanks has that will help. While you study there you can get a job as a helper for a tour guide service. Then in your free time you can work as a volunteer for any of the state or federal agencies that deal with wildlife and wildlife habitat.

    Then after a few years of all that you land a job as a hunting guide laborer/helper (they won’t hire you if you’re clueless about the Alaska outdoors). And you want to spend lots of time hunting starting out with small game, waterfowl and then big game.

    After about 5 years of hard work and lots of study you may be ready to contact these folks;

    Be sure to check this out when you get to UAF;

    Source(s): I was a big game guide for a few years in Alaska. It took a great deal of time and effort to get there. I would still be working as one but medical issues ended that for me.

    first you need to learn to hunt and then learn to hunt in alaska. it takes people many years to be good enough to guide others.

    good luck!
