Barter rules

The bater rules are  the directives of how each barter partner has to conduct when exchanging a hunting opportunity.

With we provide hunters from all over the world with the possibility to offer and exchange their hunting opportunities. Basically it should be noted here that also the exchange of two hunting opportunities constitutes a contract between two persons.

Of course you are able to agree individually on the details of your hunt with your exchange partner. In order to guarantee a smooth operation – especially “the first time” we have stipulated the following guidelines for you:

  • The mutual trust and communication have a special significance for barter. This starts already with the creation of the advertisement: present your information honestly. The ad should not be misleading or awaken expectations which cannot be fulfilled. Avoid misunderstandings and disputes by offering sufficient information.

  • The barter comes into being through the so called “tickets”, which enable you to participate at the particular hunting event. Unless otherwise agreed beforehand, it is always the person who has initially obtained the barter request and has agreed to it who may make use of the barter ticket first.

  • The shooting of the offered wildlife species constitutes an essential factor for success. Details like the type, number, sex, points, age or other criteria have to be agreed upon in advance.

  • The journey to the location is at your own expense. If necessary, the particular host will provide help to his hunting guest regarding the selection of the suitable local public transport. If the hunting guest does not directly stay overnight with the host but in a hotel or B&B, the host will help with the choice and booking of appropriate accommodation. The costs of accommodation are paid by the hunting guest. Private accommodation (hunting lodge, hunting hut, …) may only be charged for, if this has been announced already before the barter conclusion.

  • The cost for all necessary documents and permits for the hunt must already be announced in the advertisement. Generally the hunting guest has to bear the costs – excluded are kill licenses.
    The host organises all the necessary documents for the hunt on his guest’s behalf, and ensures in any case that the hunt takes place according to the customary rules and laws. The host also ensures that the hunt is as successful as possible. He also takes care of the transport between the accommodation and the hunting ground and supports his guests with regard to the trophies’ export, entry visa, eventual insurance, etc.

  • During each hunt the guest complies with the host’s instructions at all times.

  • The goal of the agreement should be to redeem the barter tickets within 2 years. An extension is possible following mutual agreement.
    Both barter partners try pro-actively to find suitable dates for the shared hunt. If no suitable date can be agreed upon within two years through unilateral fault, the other is entitled to evaluate the barter partner also without the hunt having taken place.

  • If one of the barter partners does not adhere to, or – for whatever reason – fulfil his barter promise, he is nevertheless obliged to ensure that the other will have an equal hunting experience or adequate financial compensation.
    It has to be agreed upon in advance, how the compensation will be granted if no successful barter is achieved.
