Guide School Student – “Hi Scott, thought I’d drop you a line, to thank you as well as John and Craig, for delivering an excellent training course in preparation for becoming a licensed guide.  Your presentation throughout, was outstanding. Your teamwork with the other guides resulted in complete thoroughness, for covering areas of responsibility and required knowledge & expertise. That made a huge difference in our preparedness for the next steps. The reference / workbook is a valuable tool for us to own as a study aid, as well as for ongoing reference.  It’s sure an advantage learning from professional guides who live what they teach and promote integrity. That will also help improve alliances with NH Fish and Game and create better sportsmen/women, as well as experiences in the field. I would definitely sign up for training offered by New Hampshire Outdoor Learning Center, LLC in the future to meet my outdoor needs.”  –  M. T.      Errol, NH

Big Game Processing Student – “Hi Scott, thank you for the excellent session on Big Game Processing yesterday.  The course was very well run and very informative.  Seeing all the gear in action and the hands on was very valuable for anyone who wants to set up and give it the first try on their own or make the decision to just hire a butcher.  Thanks for the tasty lunch and the take home meat.  I can see future guides in your sons as they seem to really get into it.  Your oldest has the personality to do very well.  Look forward to other courses in the future.” – Mel T.

I will recommend the Women’s Outdoor Learning Center to everyone I know.” – E. H.
