What is an appropriate tip for your guide?

In most cases, you can follow the same standard you would in many other tipping situations. Guides make a great portion of their salaries from your tips. They work hard to give you the experience of a lifetime. 

Our goal is for your guide to provide everything needed on the trip as a service to you and to allow you to enjoy your trip with minimal preparation.  The customary amount of a tip for guides is at least 20% of the trip.

If you feel as if the guide has not worked hard or put forth the effort to provide a good experience, the first instinct is to not tip at all. Feel free to tip as you see fit. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your guide's performance, please contact a manager or owner. We do not wish for anyone to leave unhappy. 

 

Can you issue our fishing or hunting license?

Yes. We are licensed as a Wildlife Service Agent to be able to better serve you. 

 

What is your refund policy?

 A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to secure your trip date.  The remaining balance of your trip rate is due 7 days prior to your first scheduled guided trip. 

In the event of needing to reschedule, a client must notify us within 30 days of their first scheduled guided trip. We will do our best to accommodate any reschedules given ample time. 

Trips that are cancelled will not receive a refund of their deposit, as well as any no-shows or last minute cancellations will not receive a refund.  If you cancel after your final deposit is paid within the 7 day period mentioned above, you will not receive a full refund. 

Our refund policy reflects an industry standard for guided trips due to having to turn away other guided trips after you book your date—we are not able to book those trips if you book yours and then cancel. 

In the event of inclement weather or unsafe conditions, we will issue a raincheck to be used within a year of your initial trip date. 

We also suggest looking into travel and trip insurance.
