Cappers are non-member guests of the hunt. You may cap up to 5 fall hunts per year. Fall hunt capping fees may be applied to membership dues (what a deal!). After capping 5 times, you are only $10 away from an Associate Membership!

Please know that capping as a guest of a patron member (whose membership pays for your capping), does not count towards your 5 cap limit.

You may cap all Spring Roading outings without limit. Capping Spring Roading outings will not count towards your capping limit and these fees are not applied towards membership dues.
