RULES/HUNTING – LOG BOOK

GEP (Hunting/Trapping)

Read This Before You Sign

You and any human companion must fill in this Hunting Log Book before entering the property/habitat of MāHUNT. A map of the subject property/habitat is enclosed with this Hunting Log Book for your review -- DO NOT REMOVE. Signing up beyond this moment’s date and time constitutes fraud. Failure to provide all the information requested in a readable fashion constitutes trespassing and will result in you and your companion, if any, being prohibited from entering any of MāHUNT’s properties/habitat now or in the future.

YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE TO THE HIGHEST OF CONSERVATION AND FAIR CHASE HUNTING ETHICS. Any breach of the requirements below will constitute grounds for MāHUNT to deny you and your companion, if any, further access during your present authorized three days or on any of MāHUNT’s properties/habitat ever in the future and may result in enforcement action being taken by local Conservation Warden and/or County Sheriff’s Department.

By signing this Hunting Log Book, I certify that I understand and will comply with all of the following:

1. Will treat the property/habitat as if it were your own.

2. Will minimize the noise that I make or cause to be made on this property/habitat, including when entering this property/habitat both in consideration of the sanctity of the property/habitat as well as the well being of the surrounding inhabitants and properties.

3. Will try to "Take only the Drake" as a voluntary restraint that adds to the challenge, focus, accomplishment, and benefit of the hunter, while also positively impacting long-term wildlife populations.

4. Close and secure all gates when entering/exiting the property.

5. Will cooperate fully with the caretaker(s) of MāHUNT.

6. Will NOT access this property/habitat or any other of MāHUNT’s properties/habitat without being an authorized winner of the free draw or blind cash bid during the three day period covered by such winning entry.

10. Will NOT damage MāHUNT’s properties/habitat and will take special care to minimize my impact on the property/habitat, endeavoring to leave the property/habitat as close to at least its condition prior to my entry as possible.

(See attached map of subject property for location of the ENTRANCE.) Physically handicapped persons (denoted by a state authorized parking placard placed prominently on their vehicle’s dashboard) may drive on clearly identifiable vehicle paths or roads on the property so long as no snow, soft ground or muddiness exists on such paths or roads. Such persons may also use wheelchairs on the property when snow, soft ground or muddiness does not exist.

12. With respect to Dunn #1, Dunn #3 and Dunn #5 will use a motorized vehicle for no other use on MāHUNT property/habitat but to transport Applicant’s and/or Companion’s own non-motorized (one) watercraft plus oars/paddle(s)/pole(s) to and from within 50 yards of water’s edge and to park there or at the designated parking area near the entrance. Such motorized vehicle use will be limited to a pre-designated access road (“Water Access Road”). (See attached map(s) for location of Water Access Road.)

13. Will NOT use or construct any permanent stand or blind on MāHUNT’s property/habitat and will remove upon Applicant’s and Companion’s (if applicable) final departure during any consecutive entrant period(s) any portable stand or blind owned by Applicant or Companion (if applicable) that Applicant and/or Companion have brought onto the property/habitat. No tools, except knives, calls and those required to fix a flat tire or construct such permissible stand(s), blind(s) or traps and their associated tools—all of which must be removed upon the entrants' final departure during any consecutive entrant period(s)—may be brought onto or used on the property.
