§ 745. Guide Licenses.
Revocable guide licenses may be issued as follows:
(a) License Application. Applications shall be submitted on forms furnished by the department. Applications shall be accompanied by the required license fee and proof that the applicant possesses a surety bond in the amount of $1,000 to insure faithful performance of the applicant and the applicant's agents or employees in fulfilling their responsibilities to their clients.
(1) In addition to other information requested, applicant shall certify that he has not been convicted of any fish and game violation or forfeited bail in connection with any such violation in the preceding 24 months.
(b) License Year. Guide licenses shall be valid from February 1 through January 31 of the following year. Guide licenses issued after the beginning of the license year shall be valid for the remainder thereof.
(c) License Revocation. Upon the conviction of a licensed guide for violation of any provision of the Fish and Game Code or any regulation adopted pursuant thereto, or upon the violation of any such law or regulation by any client of such guide when the violation has been knowingly permitted by the guide or an employee or assistant of such guide, the department shall inform the commission of such violation. The commission may thereafter revoke the guide license. The licensee shall be notified of the revocation proceedings and shall be provided an opportunity to be heard.
Any person who has had his guide license revoked shall not act as a guide or assist any guide during the period of revocation.
(d) Notice to Clients. Prior to guiding any person to a place where such person intends to take any bird, mammal, fish, amphibian, or reptile, a licensed guide shall furnish a written statement to the person to be guided. Such statement must contain information describing the services which the guide agrees to perform, the cost of those services, and the guide's license number. A copy of such statement shall be available to the department or its representatives upon request.
(e) Records. Each guide, when guiding for big game mammals or fish, shall make a record of each guided trip on forms furnished by the department. The record shall contain the name, address, and license number of each person being guided and the purpose of the trip. The guide record shall be in the field with the guide and client during the trip and shall be shown on demand to any department representative. If big game mammals or fish are taken on the trip, the record shall show the number of animals, species, location taken (section, township, and range), and tag number if a tag is required.
Such records shall be completed immediately upon returning to the vehicle, camp, or headquarters, whichever is closest to the site where the animals were taken. Such records shall be accurate, legible, and complete.
The completed original record of guided hunting or fishing trips during the month shall be received by the department no later than the 10th day of the following month and all records for the preceding month shall be included in one mailing.
The duplicate copy of the record shall be retained by the licensed guide for a period of one year. The records shall be shown on demand to any department representative.
Failure of a guide to comply with subsection (e) shall be sufficient cause for the department to refuse to issue a new license to such guide or to revoke a current license.
