With the objective of making available a variety of quality visitor services for wildlife-dependent recreation on National Wildlife Refuge System lands, we issue permits for commercial guide services, including big game hunting, sport fishing, wildlife viewing, river trips, and other guided activities. We use FWS Form 3–2349 as a method to: • Monitor the quality of services provided by commercial guides. • Gauge client satisfaction with the services. • Assess the impacts of the activity on refuge resources. The client is the best source of information on the quality of commercial guiding services. We collect: • Client name. • Guide name(s). • Type of guided activity. • Dates and location of guided activity. • Information on the services received, such as the client’s expectations, safety, environmental impacts, and client’s overall satisfaction.

The above information, in combination with State-required guide activity reports and contacts with guides and clients in the field, provides a comprehensive method for monitoring permitted commercial guide activities. A regular program of client evaluation helps refuge managers detect potential problems with guide services so that we can take corrective actions promptly. In addition, we use this information during the competitive selection process for big game and sport fishing guide permits to evaluate an applicant’s ability to provide a quality guiding service.

In 2006, we issued regulations establishing two depredation orders and three control orders that allow State and tribal wildlife agencies, private landowners, and airports to conduct resident Canada goose population management, including the take of birds, nest and eggs. We monitor the data collected for activities under these orders and may rescind an order if monitoring indicates that activities are inconsistent with conservation of Canada geese.
