STHO booking procedure is once a date has been selected for a hunt, we will email our client a booking packet. If the client does not have any objections to the booking packet the client can then print out the booking packet, sign, and return with a deposit to secure a date.
Payment Policy: On our flate rate hunts, a 50% deposit is our normal requirement. The balance for the hunt is due 30 days prior to the hunt date. Should any fees come due at the time of the hunt, payment must be in the form of cash, cashier’s check, or check. This excludes dove, hog/javelina hunts.
Our cancellation policy states that all payments are non-refundable. Should a client have to cancel the hunt, no monies will be refunded unless the client can find a replacement for themselves at the full rate. On hunts that require balances to be paid 30 days prior to the hunt date (flat fee hunts), should the client fail to make full payment by the due date , we reserve the right to cancel the hunt at that point with no monies being due for a refund to the client.
Our rebooking policy requires a $500 deposit within 30 days after the completion of the hunt. Once dates are selected for the next years hunt the remaining deposit will be required to be paid within 30 days.
Once your dates are selected and your deposit has been received, our office will send you a pre-hunt packet to assist with the clients planning of the hunt.
Gratuities are not required on STHO hunts, our guides and cooks appreciate the customary tips they receive. Generally a rule of thumb is your guides tip should be 10% of the hunt cost and the cooks tip should be 5% of the hunt cost per hunter. This is just a rule of thumb that we have historically found on our hunts.
