I'm guessing...beer.:wink:

The outfitters I know seldom have lots of cash laying around making more money for them. More use cash on hand to pay for leases and permits and use future money coming in for clients refunds and salaries.

At The Quail Shed, we usually put it into a savings account at first...
Its better than spending it, in case you have to refund some money...

In some instances, there's quite a range between normal amd sensible!

Not sure about outfitters everywhere but it seems that a majority of the ones I have spoke with lately are using the deposits as stated earlier to cover expenses for the upcoming season,leases,food plot prep & planting,new stands,upgrades and repairs on lodging & vehicles,etc.
Most of those that I spoke to no longer offer refunds on deposits and clearly state it on their brochures & web pages,and they will tell you(the honest ones anyway) to be sure about booking before committing to paying the deposit and some even recommend trip insurance,most but not all will however let you move your deposit to another hunt date ,a few I have hunted with will even carry it over to the next season.

Good Luck!!

We have a refund policy that covers loss of job, death, and the possibility of carrying it over to another year. It is not right to put people in a bind, on either side of the equation...

This person has been sitting on $4750 for 18 months.....with 9 months of notice that I no longer walk. I don't think he has been put into a bind......
$4750??? I would be pissed if I were you. Time to put together a mob and go take care of business. I hope you are able to get everything resolved, good luck.

If it does not go well, I will be back here with specifics.

It was a hunt of a lifetime. I wanted to do it as soon as I was physically and financially capable doing so. I thought I better do it.....you never know what will happen in life. Well.....it happened and there is zero chance I will be able to go in the near future or ever......
