Amount depends upon the hunt booked.

Deposits are refundable if a client is unsuccessful in drawing a license within 30 of notification from the client that they were unsuccessful. If a client chooses to leave deposit in place for the following year, they will receive preferred dates available and cost of hunt will remain the same.
