Meal Schedule
Hunters can relax knowing that meals are included in the price of the hunt. To make sure we are prepared for your drink and meal needs prior to your arrival. Each year we will send out
a Meal Preparation Email to each individual hunter. Again, this email is to important as to ensure things the hunters meal needs are in order before the arrival of the hunter. The email specifically asks each
hunter as to their food and drink requests, likes and dislikes and allergies. This allow us to plan and/or adjust our menus and/or meal schedule so as to make sure that each hunter has what they might
need for an enjoyable hunt.
