The Ultimate Hunting Trip Guide

We are not interested in taking any kind of commission like a traditional travel agency would, which means you get a lot more hunting trip for your money. Instead of taking a commission which you normally pay an agent, we give the commission back to you as a discount on the price of the hunting trip. This is possible because we
don’t charge you anything for the direct contact between you and the outfitter; instead the outfitter pays us a small fee.

Rainsford Hunting is a hunting trip portal for hunters to search out and contact outfitters directly. A traditional hunting agency books the hunt for you and charge a fee for their service.

Rainsford Hunting doesn’t take the usual commission of up to 30 % for bookings like a traditional hunting agency does, on the contrary we give the commission normally paid to the agent back to the hunter as a discount. The local outfitter pays a small fee for every hunter contacting them, which will not be added to the cost of your hunting trip.

Rainsford Hunting provides a far greater selection of hunts and outfitters than any agency in the world. So, your chances of finding the right hunt and outfitter at Rainsford Hunting is far better than at your local agency. Your local agency may have worked with an outfitter for decades but they probably don’t have user generated ratings and reviews, like we do at Rainsford Hunting.

Advantages:
• You save money by avoiding costly intermediaries. We disclaim the usual commission from the outfitter and hand it back to you as a discount.
• You avoid miscommunication by speaking directly with the local outfitter.
• You may match your expectations with the local outfitter and not a commission paid agent.
• You can build a relation to the guy you are going hunting with before you meet up at the destination.
• You are in full control of the arrangements which leads to a better trip.

Disadvantages:
• You have to find and buy a flight ticket yourself. Luckily there are lots of digital portals to help you, such as momondo.com.
• It can be more time consuming to arrange directly with the outfitter, but it will pay off.
• Instead of calling an agency if something goes wrong, you should contact the outfitter. In most cases it is the outfitter who is better able to help you solve the problem, not the agent behind the desk.

Frequently Asked Questions

After a very successful hunt booked directly through the local outfitter, the idea of Rainsford Hunting was brought to life.
Carsten was disappointed with the way things were arranged and took the matter into his own hands. The following year Carsten searched the internet himself and contacted a local Canadian outfitter. He found an outfitter who matched his expectations perfectly and who helped Carsten choose the right time of year to go and the right gear to bring, at half the price he had to pay through the agent the year before.
By booking through an European agent, who reached out to a US based agent, who reached out to a Canadian based agent, who reached out to the local outfitter, Carsten experienced how all communication to and expectations of the outfitter were lost along the way. Secondly a lot of money was spent on costly intermediaries which didn't add any actual value to the hunt. Even the gear Carsten brought was not right because the agent had misinformed him.
The idea of Rainsford Hunting came to founder Carsten Haagensen after a failed attempt hunting a polar bear in the wilderness of Canada. By booking the trip through a traditional hunting agency he experienced the many disadvantages and problems.
