Deer hunting trips are regulated through strict legislation all across the United States. Pure Outdoor Alliance makes it a rule to follow through with all regulations to ensure a smooth process in so far as the trips and your experience is concerned.
Our affordable whitetail hunting trip packages are designed in light of all laws governing the rules of hunting as well as our own rules that you must abide-by for the duration of these trips.
In order to offer any clarifications regarding rules and regulations regarding our guided hunting trips, details of lodging and facilities, payment methods and refund policies, we have made a list of frequently asked questions below. Please feel free to contact us in with any questions.
RULES & PRACTICES:
All Pure Outdoor Alliance rules apply to hunts on all Pure Outdoor Alliance properties. Pure Outdoor Alliance is proud to practice quality deer management (QDM) principles on all our hunt areas and expects our hunters to abide by and support these practices. Our buck harvest restrictions require a hunter to harvest a mature buck with an antler spread of at least 16” (typical of a rack that is outside the animal’s ears) and at least eight points. This restriction is not in effect for first time harvests. Each hunter is limited to 1 harvest per 5 day hunt.
Pure Outdoor Alliance stresses safety and requires all hunters to abide by our safe hunting standards during their hunt.
The possession and/or use of illegal drugs is strictly prohibited. If anyone is found to be in possession of drugs or under the influence, your hunt will be terminated and you will be asked to leave immediately. No alcohol shall be consumed during the days hunt. Alcoholic beverages are allowed in camp after the days hunt. Alcohol must be purchased by the hunter prior to arriving in camp.
Always wear a safety harness, know your skill and personal limitations while in the field. Hunters are not allowed to move, rearrange, alter or modify any tree stand or blind, any violation of these rules will terminate the hunt.
All our locations are ARCHERY ONLY. No firearms of any kind are allowed on any of the properties. No pets of any kind are allowed on any of the properties.
Its each individual’s responsibility to be aware of the laws in each state they are visiting us in. DNR links are provided to help with license and permit fees as well as any information you may need to know about each states rules and regulations. Archery Licenses and Permits are available at many locations over the counter in all states. Examples: Wal-Mart, Farm & Home Supply and Bass Pro.
All participants must be 18 years of age or accompanied by a parent or guardian. Upon arrival all documents will be reviewed, Licenses and Permits will be checked for accuracy. Equipment will be inspected for damage and accuracy (Bows, Crossbows, Harnesses etc.)

We want our hunters to have a “quality” experience during their visit and these rules are in place to ensure that for everyone. Should you have any questions about our practices and policies please do not hesitate to contact us.
