Do I Need Both Policies

If you have hunters paying for the right to hunt on your ground AND you have guests access your ground during non-hunting seasons for any number of reasons, the answer is YES.

To best cover yourself from claims made against you, regardless if the claim is made by a paying hunter or family friend that you gave permission to, you should have the full complement of coverage.

Hunting Lease (Hunt Club) Insurance

Hunting lease insurance is very specific as to who and what is covered by the policy and is the only type of coverage that will protect you if you are charging a fee for others to access your land.

Hunting leases have become very popular all over the country for their innate ability to make accessing quality habitat possible without having to own land. Likewise, landowners that don’t hunt or are looking for an additional revenue stream, win by having hunters pay to hunt and recreate on their land.

There are two very important components to a hunting lease arrangement that make hunt club insurance the right choice. First, there is an agreement between all parties to exchange money for access. The amount of money is not relevant, only that some money will be paid to the landowner for the right to hunt.

The second component is that the agreement is written and signed. Typically, this is done in a hunting lease contract in which both parties (landowner and hunt club) agree on an amount and other details such as dates and game to be hunted.

Hunting lease insurance covers all parties (landowners and hunters) involved for liability damages made accidentally to the other. It is important to note, that everyone listed on the hunting lease is included but only for hunting-related activities on the land described in the hunting lease.  Guests outside of the hunt club that may access your property are not included in this coverage.

If you have hunters hunting on your land and they are paying for the right to hunt, then you MUST purchase hunting lease liability insurance.

Vacant Land Insurance

Vacant Land (Timberland) Insurance

Maybe you bought your property because you were tired of always looking for a safe place to take your kids hunting or maybe you lost the right to hunt on property you had hunted for years and vowed to never go through that again.  Regardless of why, you now own your own place, and you are passionate about hunting and sharing it with those that are close to you. Vacant land insurance protects you from any claims made against you by guests you have invited and even those you didn’t (Trespassers!).

It may be hard to believe that an old friend would sue you for damages he suffered when he fell into a well or tripped on a down fence while walking on your property. The reality is that faced with mounting medical bills, he may not have a choice. Even if you are found not to be liable for damages, the resulting court costs could leave you broke with no alternative but to sell your land.

Vacant land insurance (sometimes called timberland insurance) offers no protection for your guests. This policy only protects you, the landowner from lawsuits. Additionally, vacant land insurance protects you from claims made by trespassers! Again, its hard to believe someone that is stealing access could file a lawsuit and claim negligence on your part, but they can and do. This policy would defend you in court and pay for damages you are found legally responsible to pay.

In short, if you share access to your property for free and make no money from allowing access, then you MUST purchase Vacant Land Liability Insurance to protect you and your personal assets.
