UGS Guide/Owner Mike Crawford

Guiding in Adirondack Backcountry

As a USCG Masters’ Licensed Captain and a NYSDEC Licensed Outdoor Guide since 2003 I provide an experienced guide service that takes pride in every trip. 

In Saranac Lake I earned a degree in wilderness recreation leadership and became a Wilderness Education Association certified outdoor leader. I have worked as a seasonal forest ranger for the NYSDEC in the central Adirondacks and as a Biological Technician for the USDA throughout the northeast. Fishing and hunting in New York state has been a passion of mine for 30 years. The spring of 2018 marks my 15th season of safe and professional licensed guiding.

I take great pride in the quality and professionalism of my guide service and always work hard to exceed the expectations of my guests. 

Thanks for visiting and feel free to contact me with any questions.
