Cancellation & Refund Policy: For all hunts, $1,000 per hunter is required to secure the reservation. A secondary deposit of $1,050 is required no later than June 1st the year of the hunt. Both deposits are non-refundable. If you do not get drawn we will refund a deposit, but will not for any other reason. The remaining hunt cost is due upon arrival, and there are no refunds due to weather or not harvesting an animal.
