    Default hunting trip insurance

    Ok i'm new here and have a few questions about hunting trip insurance. I have booked a drop camp moose hunt for this September. this is a big investment for me and if for some unforseen reason I can't make it I don't want to lose all my money! does anybody have any advice or suggestions? Thanks.

    I mostly just keep a note in my pocket in case something happens.

    Here's an article about an old fart who bit off more than he could chew. He talks about insurance a little.

    Probably a good idea to get the trip insurance anyway...

    You can probably get insurance to cover your travel (r/t air) from wherever you buy the plane tickets. Not sure about insurance that would cover your costs once you were on the ground in AK (outfitter, air taxi deposits, hunt planner, etc.). Have you talked to any kind of insurance agent - they might not cover you, but may know where you could find what you're asking for.

    Agree - it's worth reading carefully to know just what is covered and what isn't.
    Besides your costs, I'd ask any questions about qualifying circumstances too - what if you're weathered in for 8 days of a 10-day hunt? Technically, you have 2 days left, but you can't hunt on the day you fly in, so...
    Good luck.

    Here is one that I pulled off of Deltana outfitters site www.travelguard.com
    Never used any myself but worth looking into, if the price is right.
    Good Luck

    Interesting HuntNBgame - well done! I plugged in $5500.00 / cancel any reason / 100k flight ins for momma / and it came back $361.80
    I would DEF want to call and talk with these folks though as its a bit vague on if its just airline travels or a bearded recluse guide living in tim-buc-to you are canceling...
    When asked what state I live in I say "The State of Confusion", better known as IL....

    Taht is one bad luck trip, I complain about getting a flat on my 4 wheeler, i coudnt imagine having all these things go wrong in such a short period of time. Insurance sounds like a great idea to me.
