Spend enough time around here and you'll soon learn that hunter conflict on hunting leases is fairly common. Fortunately, our lease is well managed and our members are all professionals who get along quite well. Still, like any group of men, we sometimes have "issues" that come up.

Without question, the issue that comes up on our lease most often are guys who complain when they don't see as many deer as they should, or they don't see the quality deer they expect. And all too often, they are the ones who don't put in the time and effort that other members do to maintain their feeders, plant a good food plot, or spend time during the off season to look for a new spot to move their stand.

Having a guest shoot off of their tags. Have a lease member that brings his wife every weekend and she hunts every weekend. They feel like they paid their money and she can hunt too.
Rules are very clear. No guests until after Thanksgiving weekend, and guests hunt off of your tag.
Lease manager is his dad and he is completely tired of it. It stops this year.
He is also the 1st one to point out to another guest that they hunt off a lease members tag.
Why does there have to be 1 person no mater where you are that is an absolute idiot!

People not doing doing their part when it comes to feeding, its in our rules that you must feed protein, and we still have people that dont.

I'm lucky to have quality lease members. We all try to pitch in for the work and share the expenses. Our issues are not with each other, but rather with:

a) the guy who leases the cattle rights. He likes to show up at 7:45 am and 5 pm and lay on the horn like a wild man.

b) the neighbors. 2 of 4 neighbors are part of the WMA, the other 2 shoot everything that walks. We lose many of our 3.5 YO deer to them.

On my last lease it was the landowner and his shenanigans. On my current lease it's Freddy the Freeloader.

Glad this was brought up. How about the guy that says, "I paid for 5 deer, so it shouldn't matter who I bring to kill them as long as they sit in my stand." wtf

If it's a member of the immediate family, or even a single guest, I don't feel most people care. It's the guy who wants to bring as many different guests as he wants that creates a problem.

I feel safe in saying the issue points to why many leases charge "per gun".

We hunt our own place now, me dad and brother and anyone else we invite, the list is short and we have had zero issues.

On our old lease problems we had:
-no agrement to manage so some folks shot what they wanted, which was fine but my group dad and bro wanted to manage and couldnt so we left
-shooting imature bucks
-refusal to shoot does, would shoot 1.5-2.5 yo bucks the last weekend and still refuse to shoot a doe
-a lease member with no life that went every weekend and if you didnt he would gripe you didnt go enough or pitch in(I have more things to do)
-Goats
-cows
-people not getting big enough deer and then they shoot the 1.5yo 6pt the last weekend.
