What's the normal tipping rate for a two day goose hunt for two people ? Also we had our own dog . (Total price of hunt was $800.00)

If your guide works for the outfitter tip him good. Those kids only make about $25 per head

Since I work the industry I tip good, last hunt I tipped our guide $400. Gotta have a few good ones to make up for all the dead beats that don't tip at all.

If you can find a goose guide that will actually show up and/or answer his phone, then he's worth a pretty good tip in my book.

Men this is not a timber goose hunting thread, its a tipping the guides help thread. I suggest another thread be started to answer these very important questions on timber goose hunting and 410's

Well I tip a sawbuck for every inch of mag tube that hangs past my barrel. As a general rule.

If the guide:
Is rude to your wife
Acts annoyed that your guest's teenage daughter needs a ride to take a leak, and then stalls getting her to the truck while she is nearly in tears
Acts like you are there the set decoys for him
Doesn't know how to use a 4 wheeler
Dumps your guest off the 4-wheeler into the mud
Refuses to give you and your guest a ride back to the truck until his decoys are picked-up, and then watches you and your guest walk 3/4 mile back to the trucks
Wont shut his trap about how good he is, and you and your guest get a shot at one goose all morning

I will not use that guide service again

TIP TOTAL - $0

Years subscription to the scented candle of the month club always seems to be appreciated.

Depends on the hunt and more importantly the guide...

That's the gift that keeps on giving the whole year
