How do the self guided hunts work?

The self guided hunts work in the same way as the guided hunts with the main difference being you will not have a 1-on-1 guide with you during the hunt.  The guide team will still drop you off and pick you up from your stand and we still guarantee a shot opportunity.   There is a stiff $1000 fine for leaving the stand without prior approval. (A radio will be provided for communication with the Guide Team)
