    Waiver and Release Agreement
    Please read carefully before signing below
    In consideration for my being permitted to participate in the activities of Wilderness Outfitters Network, LLC, and Also DBA: Moss Springs Packing, Eagle Cap Wilderness Outfitters, Backcountry Outfitters and the use of the property, animals, if any, and facilities. I agree to the following Waiver and Release:

    I acknowledge that horseback riding, hiking; fishing, or hunting has inherent risks, hazards, and dangers for anyone, that cannot be eliminated, particularly in a wilderness environment.

    I UNDERSTAND THAT THESE RISKS, HAZARDS, AND DANGERS INCLUDE WITHOUT LIMITATIONS:
    1. The propensity of the animal to behave in ways that may result in injury, harm, or death to persons around them;
    2. The unpredictability of the animal’s reaction to such things as sounds, sudden movement and unfamiliar objects, persons, or other animals;
    3. Certain hazards such as surface and sub-surface conditions;
    4. Collision with other animals or objects;
    5. The potential of the participant to act in a negligent manner that may contribute to injury to the participant or others, such as failing to maintain control over the animal or not acting within his or her ability. I may encounter variations in terrain that are my responsibility and I assume these risks including creeks, water, bridges, traveled roads, wild things, stumps, forest growth, debris, rocks and cliffs, and other obstacles whether they are obvious or not obvious, man-made or natural;
    6. Hiking in rugged country;
    7. Encounters with wildlife, animals, and insects;
    8. Temperature extremes, all customers are responsible to have suitable clothing;
    9. Inclement weather conditions and the unavailability of immediate attention in the wilderness in case of injury;
    10. For our hunters: The risk of handling firearms and being near others that have firearms in their possession. All guns are to be unloaded in camp.
    I understand the risks, hazards, and dangers described above and have had the opportunity to discuss them with Wilderness Outfitters Network, LLC. I understand that these activities may require good physical conditioning and a degree of skill and knowledge. I believe I have that good physical conditioning and the degree of skill and knowledge necessary for me to engage in these activities safely. I understand that I have responsibilities. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary. No one is forcing me to participate and I elect to participate in spite of the risks.

    I AM VOLUNTARILY USING THE SERVICES OF WILLDERNESS OUTFITTERS NETWORK,LLC WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THE INHERENT RISKS, HAZARDS, AND DANGERS INVOLVED AND HEREBY ASSUME AND ACCEPT ANY AND ALL RISKS OF INJURY, PARALYSIS, OR DEATH.

I, for my heirs, successors, my executors, subrogees, and myself further agree not to sue Wilderness Outfitters Network, LLC as a result of any injury, paralysis, or death suffered in connection with my use and participation in the activities of Wilderness Outfitters Network, LLC.

    Other terms and conditions customer agrees to by signing this form.
    For our hunters:
    Wilderness Outfitters Network, LLC cannot guarantee any hunter a successful hunt. Big game's movement, weather, and the hunter’s ability, are all beyond our ability to control. We will work very hard to provide you with an enjoyable hunt but hunting the game is up to you. We cannot always change the date you are booked to go into the hunting camp or come out from the hunting camp. Just leaving a message asking to come out early is not always within our ability to do. Get conformation before you count on changing your dates.

    The designated packer for each trip is responsible for the safety of equipment and livestock on his/her trip. His/Her decision is final. This is especially important in the decision of how to remove harvested animals from particular locations. Also be aware that horseback riding in the dark is required during some of our hunts, due to the distances to be covered and shortness of daylight hours.

    Cell phone coverage is very limited in our operating area; so do not plan on using cell phones for communications during your hunt. Rent a satellite phone if you want to call out.

    For all customers: Wilderness Etiquette and Leave No Trace
    Wilderness provides a unique and wild experience for most of us, but our responsibilities as outdoor enthusiasts have changed from earlier days because of an increasing population, increased use in wilderness and an increased awareness of our impacts to these wild places. Backcountry visitors are coming to the realization that some of our favorite spots in the wilderness are being loved to death. The “Leave No Trace” ethic you project as wilderness visitors may influence the wild nature of wilderness along with the behavior of other visitors. Leave No Trace is a set of principles and practices developed by instructors of the National Outdoor Leadership School in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service. These practices will help to minimize the impacts we see in our favorite areas of wilderness.

    Leave No Trace information is also available at many commercial recreation equipment and tack outlets and the Wallowa Mountains Visitor Center offers videos, slide shows and printed materials. The information below describes some of these principles and practices. For more information see the pamphlet, "Pacific Northwest Skills and Ethics" available from the National Outdoor Leadership School and Leave No Trace, Inc.

    Plan Ahead and Prepare
    • Get information about your trip and route of travel from land managers.
    • Know the regulations and special concerns for the area you plan to visit, purchase a map.
    • Repackage food into reusable and lightweight containers.
    • Proper planning and preparation will reduce impacts on the ground.
    Travel
    • In high use areas, walk or ride on established trails when possible.
    • Prevent erosion, trail widening and/or multiple trails from forming by using existing tread.
    • Please don’t cut across switchbacks.
    • In remote areas, prevent the development of trails by traveling cross-country.
    • When passing a large group or pack string pull off the trail to the downhill side.
    • If traveling with dogs, keep them under control at all times.
    Campsites – "A Good Campsite is Found, Not Made!"
    • A good campsite is found, not made. Use existing campsites in high use areas 100+ feet from lakes, streams or trails.
    • Choose sites that are well-drained, dry grass, exposed bedrock, and sandy areas.
    • In very remote areas, spread activities out (tents, kitchen, etc.) move camp each night.
    • Camp at least 100 feet away from watering holes, lakes and if possible streams.
    • Naturalize the campsite before you leave.
    • Remove all structures such as meat poles, extra fire rings and hitching rails.
    Fishing and Hunting
    • In high-use areas bury fish entrails in a cat hole, away from campsites.
    • If fishing for just the day, clean fish at home.
    • In remote areas fish entrails can be spread widely, out of sight.
    • If you are a hunter, field dress game animals well away from trails, water and campsite.
    Pack It In, Pack It Out
    • Pack out everything you brought in with you.
    • Protect your food and wildlife by storing rations securely.
    • Remember aluminum foil won't burn completely and animals dig up buried trash.
    Sanitation 200 Feet from Streams
    • Bury human waste in cat holes 4-8” deep at least 200 feet from water camp and trails.
    • Cover and disguise the cat hole. Do not leave toilet paper on the ground.
    • Bathe and wash at least 200 feet from all water sources. Use only small amounts of biodegradable soap.
    • Scatter dishwater away from lakes and streams after all food particles have been removed.
    Campfires
    • Stoves may be the best option. Campfires, fire rings and wood collection can scar the backcountry. Some areas are now closed to campfires due to heavy use and the impacts cause by gathering firewood.
    • If you choose to build a fire, use an established fire ring.
    • If no fire ring exists, use a fire pan, a fire cloth or build a mound fire.
    • Collect only dead and down wood, or bring your own. Burn wood entirely.
    • Remove unburned trash from the fire ring and pack it out.
    Leave What You Find
    • Allow others a sense of discovery by leaving rocks, plants and archeological artifacts where you find them.
    • Avoid damaging live trees by not hammering nails into trees or hacking at them.
