  6. Hunters are required to sight-in their firearms on the rifle range in the presence of ranch personnel before hunting. A ranch guide can sight in your firearm upon request.
  7. A wounded animal is assumed dead, and as such, is counted as the hunter’s kill. A wounded animal is one that leaves behind evidence of being hit by the shooter. Ranch management’s determination is final.
  8. Recovery dogs are available through independent contractors for an additional fee to attempt to retrieve wounded animals.  THIS FEE MUST BE PAID UPON THE RECOVERY DOGS ARRIVAL (PRIOR TO THE DOGS BEING WORKED).
  9. Everyone’s safety and well being is our #1 goal and priority. Guns will remain unloaded until situated in blind. While in lodge guns will remain locked in individual lockers in gunroom.
