George Prouty

George Prouty is the owner and primary tour guide at Pickett Hill Guide Service. He has always had a passion for hunting and has successfully guided many hunts for friends and family for over twenty years. His desire to carry on the tradition of sport hunting here in New England as well as encouraging parent/child hunting is what drives the spirit of Pickett Hill Guide Service. He spends many hours in the field scouting for game and fishing for all species. He is an avid fly fisherman as well as an instructor in the art of fresh and saltwater fly fishing. During his free time he enjoys creating his own calls and lures - a tradition passed on to him by his grandfather.
