    Overseas Hunting Insurance

    Howdy all, heading to Canada soon and the question of hunting insurance has been raised, has anyone here been able to get any? and if so, who did you get it through?
    Cheers

    Cheers for the reply, but hunting is excluded in there policy wording, which seems to be a common theme among all the companies Iíve looked at

    When I hunted in North America incl Canada, a few years ago now, the hunt clubs / guides who supplied the firearms were insured for liability and so forth and had evacuation insurance from the site of any injury to hospital. That was so they would not be exposed waiting for an overseas insurer to be contacted and OK ground or rotary ambulance costs. Then my NZ travel cover would have kicked in for hospital expenses after arrival at hospital, and flights home (I checked, in writing). IMO a good idea to read the fine print and make sure recreational hunting is not excluded. If it's not mentioned, I'd ask the question specifically. But then I'm avowedly paranoid...

    Thanks for that sightpicture!! I’ll contact my guide and ask the question, my wife is a broker and she can’t find anyone yet that doesn’t exclude hunting, also BASE jumping doesn’t seem to be covered by anyone .......

    Base jumping...isn't that some sort of suicide?

    That's a useful update for me --- my last hunting trip (PA and UT in US and BC in Canada) was ~5 years ago. Drat if NZ cover options have now changed. FWIW I have a yearly policy for frequent travel with a limit on the number of days out of NZ. Dunno if that made / makes a difference to cover.

    When I used to skydive , I had an insurance to cover me during my jumps abroad .
    There were 6 levels of risks: from 1 ( tramping, and casual holidays) to 6 ( skiing). Skydiving and BASE jumping were at level 4 only, on par with golfing.
    Insurances are usually really accurate with their statistics and how much you potentially can cost them .

    You don't have to worry here, good old ACC will pick up the costs via the tax payer.

    probably cause claims for base jumping or sky diving accidents would only be for the box and transport home in aircraft hold.
