Guide. Johnny Porter runs Webfoot Guide Service out of Stockton, Missouri. Like many outfitters, he offers package hunts, which include lodging and food. 

"Guides provide the spot, the equipment, and the know-how to have a good hunt in safe, comfortable conditions," he explains. "The guide does the work and the worrying, and the hunters just have a good time."

The main downside to guided hunting is the expense. Porter's fee of $250 per day may be cost-prohibitive for hunters on a limited budget. But it's not a bad deal for waterfowlers who can hunt only one or two weekends a year, or for those without much hunting equipment or experience.
