Texas Deer Association Delivers ‘Sure Shot’ Insurance for Hunting Leases
SAN ANTONIO, TX – -(AmmoLand.com)- Hunting leases are growing in popularity nationwide and Texas land owners are looking for affordable options to protect their investments and provide financial security for their families. The Texas Deer Association (TDA) is proud to make available affordable hunting liability insurance which will reduce the expenses and operating costs for hunters and landowners throughout the state.
Landowners who lease their property to hunters cannot usually turn to normal home or automobile insurance companies for liability protection, so TDA has worked closely with Porter Insurance of Brownwood, Texas, to develop its ‘Sure Shot’ program, a special insurance package that covers commercial hunting facilities and hunting leases and is available to all TDA members.
David St. Pierre of the Paraiso Escondido Ranch near Cisco, Texas, recently applied for the Sure Shot insurance available through TDA and he was extremely impressed. “This was extremely easy,” said St. Pierre. “Warren [Blesh] just came out to the ranch and measured the buildings. Then, he gave me an awesome quote. I’m in the insurance business and I could not have beat it myself.”
TDA’s new Sure Shot Plan provides complete liability insurance for commercial hunting with or without lodging as well as deer breeding facilities. The policy covers property, lodges, cabins and other overnight facilities, and can include deer pens and handling facilities on premises. The Sure Shot policy also provides liability for hunting with or without guides, skeet shooting facilities and gun ranges, and liability associated with serving meals and/or liquor on premises, and transportation to/from airport for your van or truck. For hunting lease liability, the policy covers commercial hunting operations, land leased to hunters, outfitters, club and WMA’s. Includes liability for bodily injury or third parties and property damage.
“Because hunting is such a large part of our economy, Texas landowners know a wilderness property that is properly managed can generate substantial income, but it’s important the landowners protect themselves and their families before opening up their property to hunters,” says Karl Kinsel, executive director for the Texas Deer Association. “The TDA is dedicated to serving land owners and hunters and our new Sure Shot insurance program provides a great, affordable solution for both commercial hunting operations and individual land owners throughout the state.”
The TDA is the only non-profit organization solely committed to improving the quality of Texas deer herds through better habitat practices, modern harvest strategies and use of superior deer to enhance the deer herds. As a part of its public education efforts, the TDA produces a full-color bimonthly publication, Tracks Magazine, which updates TDA members on current industry news, deer genetics and game management issues. The TDA also hosts an annual convention and trade show in August featuring fund-raising auctions, a deer auction, golf tournament and other events.
