Landowners who allow hunters access to their property for pay may subject themselves to liability risks that deserve special attention.

To reduce their liability exposure, landowners must simply exercise what is considered reasonable care for all visitors. Reasonable care varies with the circumstances involved. Even when all precautions have been observed, prudent landowners may find they still need "layers" of specific liability protection.
