  • NO GUARANTEES: Williamson Outfitters provides hunting and fishing charters with the understanding that nature is unpredictable, and therefore, we offer no guarantee on specific catch or game outcomes. While we strive to provide an exceptional experience, factors such as weather conditions and wildlife behavior are beyond our control. Participants acknowledge and accept the inherent risks associated with outdoor activities, and Williamson Outfitters is not liable for any variations in the success of the trip.
  • ZERO TOLERANCE for fighting, unsafe use of firearms, shooting at or killing protected wildlife, over limiting on ducks including shooting other hunter’s limits, illegal drug use, horseplay on boat while traveling, or anything else deemed illegal or unsafe. Our number one goal is always safety and providing a great experience! If you or anyone in your party disregards this policy your hunt will immediately end and you will still be responsible for paying the balance of your booking.

We are all looking forward to a fun, memorable, & safe hunting season! If you have any questions or concerns feel free to text or call me 850-251-8650 . Thank you!
