Postby hdunn49 » Wed Dec 04, 2013 11:03 pm

what would you do if your club got no water this year? would you ask for your money back?

I would inquire about rolling over the money for next years payment...If no water for next year, ask for it back.

all the contracts i have ever signed for rice ground hunting rights have a clause that there is no guarantee of water.as far as getting money back from a rice farmer,unless you or another member better be a lawyer.they will string you along in court for ever.better idea is hunt geese.jim

I would definitely ask for my money back. a big part of what you are paying for is the water. all the clubs I know have water...

That's the risk you take, unfortunately. As stated here, water is never a guarantee such as this case when Term 91 was invoked on the West side that gets water from the SAC river. This is completely outside the landowners control, unless he also has pumps for groundwater. Water is about $19 an acre for continuous flow so basically 1 leased blind pays for the properties water. This year is was half that since we only got a 1 time fill. If we don't get ALOT of rain this year they are talking about only allowing water for 40% of the rice to be planted and no decomp water. We're all going to be hunting dry fields next year if we don't get some H2O and quick!

i was involved in a blind that did not get water once and we didnt even need to ask for our money back. The person running the club met me one day and basically said...we are not going to have water...here is your money. He was a stand up guy but i am not sure he is even running clubs anymore.

Anyone who paid for a one time fill field assuming he would be able to hunt...Rookie move..Never...Never, Also if you sign a contract for a rice blind with NO water guarantee?? You got it coming..

The club I used to belong to in the grasslands had a no water clause, it happens and if you sign a
Release read it through, most have the no water clause, grasslands,rice, Klamath basin water is never a garuntee.
Take a kid hunting, the memories will last a lifetime.
