NOTE FROM MDL
TO INQUIRING HUNTERS
IF YOU NEGOTIATE A LOWER HUNT COST OUT OF MDLO, YOU ARE TAKING MONEY OUT OF YOUR HUNT AND MDLO'S OPERATION. YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE THE SAME HUNT QUALITY AS EVERYONE ELSE WHO HAS PAID FULL PRICE FOR THEIR HUNT. THE MORE REVENUE WE HAVE, THE MORE WE CAN PROVIDE OUR CLIENTS. IF YOU ARE OKAY WITH A LOWER QUALITY HUNT, BY ALL MEANS, NEGOTIATE AWAY WITH MDLO. THAT IS YOUR CALL.
