Deposit Information/Policy: A non-refundable $1,500.00 advanced deposit is required to hold a reservation. Deposits will be applied to the cost of the hunt and are non-refundable. The deposits of those not granted a license through a general draw would be applied to holding a reservation for the following season.
Cancellation & Refund Policy: There is a very small margin of profit in the outfitting business. After you have made your reservation we will likely turn away other clients for the same hunt. For this reason, and because it is nearly impossible to re-book canceled space after big game licenses have been issued or sold out, if you cancel your booking/hunt for any reason, your $1,500.00 deposit on your hunt is NON-REFUNDABLE.
License Information: Procurement of Montana state license, special permits, and tags required for the hunt are the responsibility of the participant. Guaranteed licenses may be available through the Company upon request. Pricing for these guaranteed licenses are set at a market value/rate by the Montana State Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Parks. These license costs are subject to change outside the control of Montana Whitetails, Inc. Information for obtaining licenses is available through the Company, or through the Montana State Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Parks. Hunters scheduled during the archery-only season must obtain an archery license/permit.
The participant must provide all hunting gear, including suitable clothing, bows, arrows, firearms, and ammunition. To assist you in preparing for your visit and hunt, please review the information provided on our website [www.montanawhitetails.com], including:
