Our hunts consist of morning or afternoon reservations so we can better ensure your safety. Payment is for birds released. Although we do our best to see that you get your birds, we cannot guarantee your ability, or that of your dog. Our insurance carrier requires all hunters to sign a liability waiver. We use this address to add you to our mailing list. If an email is provided, we add you to our email newsletter, providing club news of open weekends, open Europeans, and special event reminders. We won’t flood your inbox or share your address. And we don’t sell our lists!

You can sign a liability waiver before you arrive for your hunt and be added to our email newsletter & yearly mailing.
