Camp & Hunting Policies
On all big game hunts, ASGS strictly enforces a "wounded animal policy". This simply means that if an animal is hit and injured, it is considered fatal, end of hunt. It will be charged at full price. ASGS will do everything possible to recover wounded game in a reasonable matter. It is also the decision and discretion of the guide to terminate the recovery of a wounded animal at any time. Blood Dogs are available in some areas that ASGS hunts. ASGS will make arrangements for Blood Dogs, all cost associated with the tracking and recovery of a wounded animal are the hunter's responsibility. It is ASGS responsibility to make sure that everyone goes home safely. Drinking is prohibited while hunting. After all firearms are put away for the day, the bar is open.
For those clients that are flying. ASGS hunts in many areas of the country check with ASGS for which airport to fly into. Check to see if there is airport pickup available (don't take it for granted). Car rental may be required check with ASGS before booking your hunt. We suggest that you arrive as early as possible driving or flying. Arriving early will allow you time to check firearms and to see the area you will be hunting, and many times you will be able to hunt the evening you arrive.
