|Elk Hunting Ranch, Silvertine Wildlife Co.||
Mark was on a Elk & Deer Hunt. He wounded his Buck the evening before he had to leave. Mark paid the trophy fee for the deer and we found the deer a few days later, dead. Although the Cape and Meat were not salvageable we were able to find him a nice cape and he now enjoys his Whitetail Mount in his home.
Base Hunt Price: 100% GUARANTEED OPPORTUNITY!
A $2,950.00 Base Hunt Fee will be charged if a trophy is not taken during the scheduled hunt to cover the cost of the hunt expenses.
It is the intention of Silvertine Wildlife Co. to provide our guest, a reasonable opportunity to harvest a trophy animal in their contracted size range. In the event that opportunity does not present itself, you will be refunded the full Base Hunt Fee and balance owing of Trophy Fee.
All hunts are fully guided, so your guide will confer and coordinate with you to determine the trophy to be harvested prior to taking a shot. You must receive approval from the guide before any shot is taken. Presentation of a trophy in your class, approved by your guide for harvest will fulfil the obligations of Silvertine Wildlife Co. - there will be no Base Hunt Fee refund.
In the event a shot is attempted and/or game is wounded, the obligation of Silvertine Wildlife Co. is met, and there will be no Base Hunt Fee refund. Every reasonable attempt will be made to recover a wounded animal.
