Duck Hunting Chat rules for the classifieds. Updated 3.8.08
We insist that you read all rules before you post an ad or commence in any transaction.
Ads are totally free to individual registered members.
Buyer/seller beware. Meaning if you do not know who you are buying/trading/selling with, make sure you take appropriate safeguards to protect yourself like getting full name, complete address, phone number, etc… If you send payment via the USPS, it is a federal felony not to honor the transaction once you cash a check or M.O. Make sure you follow up on all transactions like acknowledging you received payment, the goods, etc. Send goods with a “confirmed receipt” that the buyer received it.
Furthermore, you need to send the item in a timely manner and keep communication lines open, especially if an unexpected delay. Not doing so is grounds for being banned from DHC.
Ads must state in the title whether it is “for sale”, “wanted”, or “for trade”. And must clearly state in the ad title what is being listed. For example: “Remington 1187 shotgun for sale” or “Foiles SMH goose call for trade” or “Wanted – Finished Labrador Retriever Dog."
For sale items must clearly state the asking price. No best offers or auctions or similar are allowed. This includes links or posts about auctions.
No Business ads are allowed. If you make, assemble parts, mark up the price, etc. for sale/resale—that is a business under our definition. If you are a business, please become a sponsor to advertise your product or services. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to become a sponsor. Sponsors may include a link on their signature to their business website and may sell items/services on the classifieds. NonSponsors may not. This includes dog kennels. (see below)
Firearms. You must abide by all federal, state and local laws and regulations. You may only ship guns to a FFL holder per Federal law.
About dogs/puppies. Classifieds are for individuals and non-commercial sales. You may post 1 litter per 2 year period provided this is a private litter, you own the Dam, and you are not breeding for commercial gain. A commercial name, website, practice or multiple breedings will not constitute Private Litters. In the event you post a commercial litter under the guise of private, you may be banned from the site permanently. You may list 1 adult dog per 2 years if the animal is considered a pet and or a personally/professionally trained started dog that is also a pet. We do not allow Stud listings nor WTB listings for a stud/started dog. It is advised that any private litter posted include Pedigree and Health Clearance information regardless of caliber.
[b]Land/leases. No land for sale, leases, club memberships, etc. are allowed.
