I hereby acknowledge and understand the terms, provisions and conditions of a Day Hunting Lease Agreement and agree to abide by its terms, provisions and conditions. I further acknowledge and understand that no warranty, either express or implied, is made by the Lessor as to the condition of the hunting lease land and/or property (hereinafter the leased premises) located in McCulloch County, Texas, or of any roads, buildings, gates, fences, hunting boxes (ground and/or elevated), blinds, chairs, tree stands, and wildlife feeders (mechanical and non-mechanical) or other improvements located thereon.

I hereby acknowledge that there are no warranties, either expressed or implied, as to fitness of purpose of the property, there are no guarantees of any nature whatsoever as to game animals available, and the success of the hunting is strictly at the risk and responsibility of the Hunter, and there are no refunds or reimbursement for any expenses incurred or funds paid (except for Herd-Management Deposit) for any reason including but not limited to the malfunction of any and all feeder timers.

I hereby acknowledge the receipt of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Official Hunting and Fishing Regulations Outdoor Annual and "The 10 Commandments of  Shooting Safety" AND that I am responsible for Knowing, Understanding, and Complying with any and all Texas Hunting Regulations and Shooting Safety.

I hereby state that I expressly assume all such dangers, risks and hazards and I hereby state I will exercise caution when using hunting boxes (ground and/or elevated), blinds, chairs, tree stands, and any other device used for hunting.
 
In consideration for the right to enter the leased premises, I hereby release and agree to protect, indemnify and hold harmless the Lessor and his or her respective heirs, agents, employees and assigns from and against any and all claims, demands, causes of action and damages, including attorneys' fees, resulting from any accident, incident or occurrence arising out of, incidental to or in any way resulting from the use of the leased premises and all improvements thereon, whether or not caused by the Lessor's negligence or gross negligence.

I hereby further covenant and agree that I, my heirs, successors and assigns will not make any claim or institute any suit or action at law or in equity against the Lessor or his or her respective heirs, agents, representatives, employees, successors or assigns by reason of conditions of the leased premises or activities occurring thereon.
