All sporting clients must have personal liability insurance covering them against any accidents that may occur as a result of their actions. The minimum amount of cover should be no less than £5,000,000 for any one claim.
We (Callumkill Estate) make no guarantees about the number or quality of animals to be culled or shot during a client’s sporting day. As our animals are all wild and unpredictable, we are unable to guarantee that sporting will be successful and as such we exclude liability for any misrepresentation of the chances of success that may occur. All sporting clients with their own rifles will be required to hold an appropriate license for the legal use of sporting weapons. Sporting weapons must be at least.243 caliber. Client’s who do not hold an appropriate firearm certificate must rent the estate rifle and be accompanied at all times by the estate’s stalker (the “Stalker”).
Each sporting client will be required to make 3 successful test shots at a target at 100 meter distance. If the client misses, the client will be unable to hunt until and unless the Stalker is satisfied that the client has satisfactorily hit the target. No refund can be given in the event the Stalker is not satisfied, but in stalking parties, others in the party will be able to take that client’s booked deer.
Clients will be accompanied at all times by our Stalker.
We reserve the right to cancel a sporting day or exclude a particular client in the event that the Stalker believes that the client is not physically fit for the day (through drink or drugs or any other reason) or that the client may pose a safety risk to the Stalker, the client or others in the party. No refund will be given in these conditions.
We further reserve the right to cancel a sporting day in the event that the conditions are not acceptable (either because of weather or certain situations or events which occur which are not within our reasonable control). Where one of these occurs we will normally attempt to rearrange the sporting day for a mutually convenient date as soon as practicable once the situation that prevented the sporting day taking place has been resolved. In such circumstances there may be a delay (sometimes a substantial delay) before the rearranged session will take place.
We do not exclude or limit liability for our negligence or negligent omission that causes your personal injury or death.
Stalking: The Stalker will select a deer that in his opinion is suitable to be culled. The Stalker and the client taking the shot will make the approach, leaving any other clients behind. Once the Stalker decides they are at a suitable distance from the relevant deer, he will describe the selected deer and offer the shot to the client. After a successful shot has been taken the client’s deer will be collected.
All instructions and decisions given by the Stalker are final. Failure to comply with such instructions or decisions may result in the cancellation of the booking with no right to a refund or compensation.
Exceptionally big Stags (more than 11points) and Fallow Bucks (full shovel) will be priced on the day by the Stalker prior to firing.
The prices quoted to the client are for each opportunity presented and accepted, regardless of whether the client misses the targeted animal.
All venison and game belong to the estate unless otherwise stated.
All trophies will be of varying age and quality. The Stalker can prepare trophies at extra cost. Please let him know at the end of each day.
