New York State offers the absolute finest in Licensed Professional Guides through
the New York State Outdoor Guides Association

The New York State Outdoor Guides Association (NYSOGA) was originally founded on June 28, 1891 and reorganized in 1981. NYSOGA represents guides from every part of New York State.

A unique aspect of NYSOGA is its self-discipline policy. Each member, by virtue of his/her membership, agrees to adhere to a Code of Ethics. Violation of this Code results in disciplinary action within the organization, thus ensuring a highly credible and professional roster of guides for the public's hire.

The NYSOGA Mission:

To enhance the guiding profession in New York State with the highest standards of honesty, safety, and professionalism by providing New York State licensed guides with support services, representation, and a sense of community.
