At Forister Exotics we are very open minded to our hunters needs or requirements and realize people are busy so we employ a daily hunting program instead of package deals. We recommend 2 days for most species and some may take 2-4 days especially bow hunting. Different times of the year and the range conditions will typically determine how many days you should plan to hunt. So adding days as long as the schedule will permit is typically not a problem.
DAILY RATES :
Forister Exotics Offers hunts on a daily basis instead of package deals for a set number of days. Daily rates include 1 guide, transportation to and from the blinds, and skinning and quartering your harvest. Our daily rate is $150.00 per day and on rifle hunts can be split between 3 hunters. For archery hunts the $150 is per day per hunter However with our archery hunts you do not pay your daily rates if you harvest an animal. Once you draw blood your daily rates get subtracted from the trophy fee and that is your balance. If you do not harvest an animal on either hunt you only have your daily rates lodging and meals if we are providing them.

I know all these fees might have you scratching your head so here is an example. Joe calls me and books a party of 3 to come Rifle hunt for 2 days with meals and lodging in the main lodge. Joe shoots a nice Axis buck on his hunt.
Joe’s Tab would be : $50 x 2 hunting daily rate ($100) 33.33 x 2 Lodging rate ($66.66) Meals $60 x 2 ($120.00) and then his Trophy fee for the Axis buck ( $1850.00 ) Total comes to $2136.66
Joe’s Daily Fees amounted to less the $150/Day where most places you will pay $250/Day.
