Terms and Conditions
Deer Stalking will take place on dates previously agreed and will be under the direction of The Deer HUB’s employee’s/workers.
It is your responsibility to ensure you are fit & healthy for Deer Stalking. Any health conditions that might affect your ability to stalk deer should be disclosed to us prior to your outing.
You must have valid shooting insurance.
An Estate rifle can be made available, however if you are shooting your own rifle it must comply with the minimum legal requirements and under the conditions stated on your FAC.
You must accept that you will not be permitted to shoot deer unless we are satisfied that you are competent to do so. Depending on your experience, we may ask you to pass a shooting test prior to being allowed to stalk.
We reserve the right to end a stalk at any time, if during a stalk safety is infringed or inhumane shots are attempted. Any fee paid for the stalk will not be refunded.
There are a number of footpaths and walkers that frequent some of the land/estates we hunt on therefore shots may only be taken at stationary deer with a clear earth backstop.
High seats are maintained to a high standard, but clients must accept that they use them at their own risk.
We reserve the right to cancel booked stalk outings and/or training courses and rearrange if in our judgement we feel that the weather conditions are unsuitable for the activity.
During a stalk outing or on one of our training courses, you may be loaned equipment to use such as stalking sticks, binoculars or knives. Whilst the equipment is in the possession of the client during the loan period, the client accepts all risks for personal injury, public liability, personal liability and / or damage to property related to the use of the loaned equipment. In the event that any item of loaned equipment is damaged, the cost of repair or replacement will be charged to the client.
Selection of trophies will be at the discretion of The Deer HUB’s staff/workers or the manager of the estate venue.
If an animal is wounded or missed, all stalking will stop until all possible attempts have been made to locate the animal. Any time spent in excess of the normal 2.5 hour stalk session in search of the animal will incur an additional charge.
Any resulting venison remains the property of The Deer HUB although you may be given the opportunity to purchase the carcass. The full price of the carcase will be charged if the carcase is badly shot resulting in gut/haunch/saddle damage etc.
The cost of a morning and/or afternoon/evening outing which averages 2.5 hours in the field costs £295. We will endeavour to ensure you are successful, however with wild animals no guarantee can be given as to success.
Stalk outing fees are payable at the time the booking is made. Any subsequent fees for shot animals, venison etc. can be paid on the day or by bank transfer/your account with us or card within one week (7 days) of the hunt date. Bookings for stalk outings are valid for one year from the day the booking is made and are non-refundable.
Cancellation of any stalk booking less than one week (7 days) will incur 100% of the stalk fee/cost. Cancelled bookings more than one week (7 Days) before the stalk date may be rescheduled anytime within a one year period.
Bookings for courses/training can be made via the website, email or telephone. All bookings require payment in full on the day the booking is made and are non-refundable.
Cancellation of any date booked which is less than one week (7 days) notice will incur 100% of the course/training fee/cost. Cancelled bookings with more than one week (7 Days) notice before the course/training date, may be rescheduled anytime within a one year period.
In the event of a cancellation either by us or the client where an alternative date/time cannot be provided by us within a one year period, monies received in respect of that course/training will be refunded in full.
The Deer HUB reserves the right to alter or cancel published dates and change venues without liability.
Gift vouchers issued for Deer HUB activities are valid for one year and are non-refundable. If the recipient of a gift voucher does not wish to participate in the activity specified on the voucher, it may be exchanged for another Deer HUB activity of the same value.
