To book please follow the instructions below.

Each group MUST nominate a hunting party leader who books on behalf of the group.  In order to give as many hunters as possible a chance to hunt, no more than five bookings per group can be made.

Groups can consist of a maximum of four hunters. The hunting party leader will be the contact person. 

The hunting party leader only needs to book one ticket to cover the group.
