Tips

Tips are not included in the guide fees and are greatly appreciated. If you enjoyed the hunt, it is customary to tip your guide. 20% is generally the norm.

Hunting Times

All hunts are AM only unless PM hunts are requested. Hunts generally run from the listed shooting hours in the morning till a limit or Noon. Early season birds may stop flying to fields by mid morning and the hunt may be called at that time. This is up to the guides discretion. Sometimes we do get to the hunting locations quite a bit earlier then the listed shooting hours to get everything set up. These are working hunts, everyone helps. So if the meeting time seems early, that is probably is why.
