** When an animal is harvested, it will be recovered immediately and transported back to camp. The animal will be caped out and tagged, the client will then decide if he or she would like the animal transported into town for processing. If too late in the evening, the carcass will be stored on a meat pole 100 yards from the South Ranch camp or at a meat pole at headquarters on the North Ranch.
Meat will be delivered at the locker at no charge, but the client will pay for processing. Hunters need to check into the office the first day of the hunt and depart by noon on the final day.
