Four or more shooters may book exclusive use to both ranches. Fewer shooters may have to share the facility with other guests.
One-half deposit is required at time of booking. Deposit is 100% refundable up to 2 weeks before arrival. After that the deposit is not refundable, but may be applied to a rescheduled time.
Refunds will not be issued on account of weather, but rain checks will be issued if the weather is unsuitable. This means that no photography is done, but the day is cancelled in the morning before any shooting starts. Once the shooter decides to begin work in spite of the weather, we will not honor cancellations on account of weather. Rain check days must be scheduled in advance like any other day.
There will be no night photography.
There will be no firearms, fires or smoking allowed!
No cutting or breaking of vegetation is allowed, especially so for trees!!! Oak wilt, a deadly fungus to oak trees, is present on BCNA and breaking limbs spreads it.
The ranch owner has the right to end a shooter’s stay at any time for unacceptable behavior, violation of ranch rules or any other reason. In that event, refund will be made for unused days only.
A signed release and payment is required before any activities begin.
Nothing may be picked up anywhere on Block Creek Natural Area: no plants, no driftwood, no rocks, NOTHING! If any arrowheads or fossils are seen, they must be left where seen and not picked up.
It is acceptable to wade in the creeks, but no swimming is allowed.
Because of liability concerns, no children under 18 years of age are allowed without special arrangements and approval from the owners of The Laurels Ranch and Turkey Hollow. No pets are allowed on either ranch.
