-   LICENSING, GUNS AND AMMO

EVERY MEMBER OF YOUR PARTY IS REQUIRED TO HAVE A VALID HUNTING LICENSE, DRIVERS LICENSE, STATE AND FEDERAL WATERFOWL STAMPS, HIP SURVEY, HUNTERS SAFETY CARD AND ANY OTHER STATE SPECIFIC REQUIRED DOCUMENTATION.

MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE AT LEAST ONE BACK UP GUN IN CASE OF FAILURE. GUIDES CAN NOT LEND A GUN TO A SHOOTER, SO MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A BACK UP!  IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT EVERY PERSON HAVE NO LESS THAN 2 BOXES OF STEEL SHOT,

NO LEAD SHOT...  EVER!    HIGH BRASS STEEL SHOT OR OTHER NON-TOXIC SHOT IS REQUIRED, #2, 3 OR 4s, ARE PERFECT. MODIFIED CHOKES WORK BEST. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE LEGAL HUNTING GEAR, PLUG IN THE GUN, SHELLS, LICENSE, STAMPS, ETC. FULL PAYMENT IS STILL REQUIRED BUT YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO HUNT. THIS IS THE LAW.



-   RECOMMENDED ACQUIRE

EVERYONE MUST WEAR CAMOUFLAGE INCLUDING HAT, JACKET AND PANTS. RUBBER KNEE BOOTS ARE RECOMMENDED.


-   DOGS
MANY PEOPLE WANT TO BRING THEIR OWN DOG, WHILE THIS IS UNDERSTANDABLE, IT'S IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU LET THE GUIDE RUN HIS OWN DOG. IF YOU HAVE YOUR OWN DOG, AND WOULD LIKE TO USE HIM OR HER, AS LONG AS THE HUNT IS SOLELY YOUR OWN PARTY,  YOU CAN USE YOUR OWN DOG, BUT... WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE THE QUALITY OF YOUR HUNT AND YOUR DOG MUST BE UNDER CONTROL AT ALL TIMES. THE GUIDE WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN YOU CAN SEND YOUR DOG IN ORDER TO PRESERVE THE QUALITY OF THE HUNT. DTK WATERFOWL IS  NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SAFETY OF YOUR DOG.

-   PAYMENT AND TIPPING
MANY CLIENTS ASK US WHAT IS THE APPROPRIATE TIP AND HOW THE PAYMENT WORKS. WHEN YOU MEET UP WITH YOUR GUIDE. YOU WILL SIGN THE WAIVER OF LIABILITY, PAY THE GUIDE ANY BALANCE DUE.
TYPICAL TIPPING IS NOT BASED UPON THE SUCCESS OF THE HUNT BUT RATHER THE EFFORT OF THE GUIDE AND THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE. TYPICAL TIPS FOR THE GUIDE RUN BETWEEN 10 TO 30 DOLLARS PER HUNTER.
