To confirm your booking, a 50% deposit is required. The only exception is for those with zero mule deer preference points that apply for hunts 7 or 8, our Greys River trophy mule deer hunts. For those with zero points applying for a Greys River mule deer hunt, a $500.00 deposit is required. If you are unsuccessful in drawing a single animal hunt, your deposit can either be returned or rolled over to the next year. If you book a combination hunt and are unsuccessful in drawing one animal, but draw the other license, the deposit amount will be refunded for only the species you fail to draw. Only upon failure to draw a license is a deposit returned. License applications withdrawn by the client WILL NOT COUNT AS FAILURE TO DRAW. In those cases, deposit refund will not be granted. Deposits will be returned within 60 days of notification by the Wyoming Game & Fish that you were unsuccessful in obtaining a license.
Final payments are due 30 days prior to the hunt start date.
No refunds will be made for cancelled hunts for any reason. No rate reductions or extra days will be given if hunters leave before the conclusion of the hunt or if they fail to arrive on prearranged dates. We recommend you purchase trip cancellation insurance in the event you are unable to make your trip due to work, injury, illness or death. Refunds are not granted for weather delays, area or season closures.
Personal checks are accepted for all payments, as well as all major credit cards. Final payments are due 30 days prior to the hunt start date.
Meals and lodging on Wyoming camp hunts are subject to a 5% state sales tax ($2.50 per day).
Public Land Use Fee (3%):
SNS Outfitter & Guides hold permits to outfit on National Forest, BLM and Wyoming State Trust Lands. Most of our private land leases have intermingled publc lands within the borders of these ranches. These Lands require a permit and use fee to commercially outfit in them. SNS Outfitter & Guides is a permittee of the Bridger Teton National Forest, Greys River District & Thunder Basin National Grasslands as well as the Bureau of Land Management.
One-on-One Guide Service:
This exclusive service is offered at a rate of $250.00 per day. The rate is charged for the number of days booked.
Trip Cancellation Insurance:
We strongly recommend you consider purchasing a trip insurance policy on your hunt as we do not offer good-will refunds for any reason. Should you be unable to make your trip due to an unforeseen problem you will not lose all of your investment. Trip insurance also protects you from damage or loss to your equipment and provides medical benefits and emergency evacuation coverage during your hunt. Once you book your trip we will provide you with a flyer detailing the type of insurance offered. Information can also be obtained at www.ripcordrescuetravelinsurance.com/wyoga or call Ripcord Rescue Travel Insurance at (415) 481-0600 and ask about Sportsman’s Travel Insurance.
A liability waiver and firearm safety rule form will be mailed to you in July to be signed and returned to our office. Hunters who have booked Hunt 7 or a Jackson Hole Outfitters hunt will receive a visitor risk agreement and firearm safety rule form to be signed and returned to our office.
Licenses for hunting are not transferable to another person according to Wyoming and Montana law. All Wyoming and Montana licenses are drawn via a lottery system. We are happy to help you secure the licenses for your hunt. We fill out all Wyoming and Montana license applications and submit them for you. Most of our hunts have draw odds of 100%. You can find out if the hunt you are interested in requires points in that particular hunt’s description page. LICENSE FEES ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF THE HUNT.
