What is the Difference Between a Self-chartered/guided, Semi-guided, and a Chartered/Guided Event

By

A self-chartered fishing trip or self-guided hunt does not involve a professional guide or a guide fee.

A semi-guided hunt involves a guide, outfitter, or landowner and a hunt fee.  Usually, they just show the hunters were the blinds and cleaning station are and where to dump the guts.

A chartered fishing trip or guided hunt involves a professional guide who fishes/or hunts (as applicable) with his clients.  They involve a guide fee.  The guide/captain often will clean the catch/game for you, but sometimes charges an additional fee.

For all of the above types of events, we attempt to split the vehicle and boat gas (if applicable; the amount depends on the distance traveled and the number of people sharing the gas), state or county park fees (if applicable), boat launch fees (if applicable), and toll road fees (if applicable).  There is also food, lodging (if applicable), and bait (if applicable) costs.

For self-guided duck hunts and self-chartered fishing trips, the participants (excluding the captain) will split the vehicle and boat gas (the amount depends on the distance traveled and the number of people sharing the gas), a boat wash after the event (to wash the salt and mud off), state or county park fees (if applicable), boat slip fees (if applicable), boat launch fees (if applicable), and toll road fees (if applicable).  The captains have to replace their boat batteries, tires, etc., and repair things like their trolling motors more quickly due to taking people on such trips than they would if they did not take members and guests on such trips; therefore, they are exempt from the above expenses.
