OUR NEW Payment Plan

We have a new Option for paying for your hunt. We can set Clients up on a Monthly Recurring Credit Card Payment Plan where they can pay for their hunt monthly from now until October 1st. By choosing this plan, the Client incurs less of an impact on their finances all at once and insures them a spot for the upcoming fall.

For example, if you are a Deer Hunter and your total bill is $2,500, and you choose this payment option and contacted me as of April 1st, we would take your total owed and divide it into the total number of months between now and October 1st (full payment is required by October 1st). You would be charged $357.14 on the first of every month with the final bill being on October 1st. This monthly charge may vary depending upon when you book your hunt. By choosing this plan, you would be paid in full prior to arrival.

If you are a Pheasant Hunter and you owe $2,000 for your upcoming hunt and contact me about setting up this Payment Option, you would be charged $285.71 on the first of every month with your final payment being made on October 1st.
