New hunting guide license required by DNR

From Herald Staff Reports

The Indiana General Assembly passed Senate Enrolled Act 363 this year that is now in effect.

This new law requires a Hunting Guide License for those that provide hunting guide services for money or other goods or services.

The license will cost $100 per year. The application for the license and monthly report form can be found at

While hunting guides, also known as outfitters, haven’t been licensed by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources before, fishing guides have been licensed for a number of years.

The Indiana General Assembly also modified language for penalties as it pertains to guides. Violations include knowingly or intentionally guiding an individual on private property to hunt without consent of the landowner.
