The New Hampshire Guides’ Association was started in Pittsburg, NH in 1932 by lumberjacks working in New Hampshire’s lumber and paper industry. While hunting and fishing have always been a part of our American heritage, President Teddy Roosevelt’s lead in conservation and love of outdoor sports brought about a resurgence in hunting and fishing expeditions to remote areas in the early 20th century. Hunting and fishing were no longer just a means of subsistence, but a new way of recreating. Great North Woods lumberjacks were all too willing to capitalize on the new tourism that had gained such popularity. These lumberjacks guided hunters for moose, black bear and white tailed deer, and anglers for lake trout and brook trout. Once limited to only Pittsburg, The NH Guides’ Association is now a statewide organization of hunting and fishing guides still serving the sports minded client.
