Hunting

MooseCartoon06

The governing documents of the Association allow for both hunting and the restricting of hunting by individual landowners. Those members who choose to post “No Hunting” on their personal property are prohibited from hunting on all Association properties.

Landowners are allowed to invite members of the immediate family to hunt on Association properties. Immediate family is defined as self, spouse, parents, parents of spouse, children and spouses of children, and grandchildren and spouses of grandchildren. All other individuals are guests of the landowner. Any landowner may sponsor two (2) guests/ assessment paid to hunt on Association properties if accompanied by the landowner or an immediate family member.

During various hunts in years past, members of the Association and its Board confronted numerous groups of hunters who had gained access to our property to hunt, but were doing so outside the bylaws and restrictive covenants of the Association. The most common scenario is a landowner giving a key to an outsider, allowing hunters to access the property unattended. Landowners who facilitate this behavior are violating our bylaws and restrictive covenants. Sadly many of these episodes have led to confrontation and property damage.

The Board has, therefore, instructed the Security Team to tighten the regulation on hunting at Hardware Park Mountain Estates. As such, the Security Team is requiring the landowner who sponsors hunters (family members and guests) to download the spreadsheet at the bottom of this notice, supplying the Team with the information requested for each potential hunter and selected hunt this year. Once that information is completed, the Team is asking the landowner to forward that file back to the Team via email. From this file a hunting permit will be generated and returned to the landowner for distribution. The permit will be the size of a credit card that may be kept in the hunter’s wallet while hunting on the property. Anyone hunting without a permit will be subject to trespass.

Permits are required to hunt on Association property for:

  • Grouse
  • Deer
    • Archery
    • Rifle
    • Muzzleloader
  • Elk
    • Archery
    • Rifle
    • Muzzleloader
  • Moose

Thank you for your compliance. The intent of this policy is to prevent mishap and property damage while improving the hunting experience for landowners and their families.
