I may have an opportunity to join my friend's West Texas lease in 2015 which would leave me with 2 properties to hunt, this lease and my 70 acre ranch in SW Young county. Should this actually occur, I am thinking of the possibility of taking on one lessor for my ranch with me retaining some limited hunting rights to it in the event I wanted to occasionally hunt it instead of making the trek to West Texas. I would consider the arrangement to be more of a co-op type situation which could be ideal for a father-son or individual hunter. Since a one mature buck AR county, thinking I'd allow 2 mature bucks being harvested meaning a father-son could both harvest an AR compliant buck or would allow a single hunter to bring a guest out to be able to harvest a mature buck too. The acreage has a nice deep tank which holds water when other surrounding areas do not, no cattle during hunting season with county road frontage and mesquite brush cover on all sides surrounding a more open mesquite flat pasture in the middle. Excellent turkey hunting, decent hog population, good dove and decent opportunity to harvest a mature buck. Also coyotes, bobcats and occasional fox seen. No water but electricity could be available. Currently have one operating electric oil pumpjack in the front of property and one towards middle of place. They have been in place for 4-5 years now so deer and animals should be well accustomed to them by now. Verbal arrangement with pump gaugers and servicers is that no traffic is desired to occur during hunting season except for timerange of 10AM-2PM. One of the best things is that it is 2 hours drive from the metroplex. Gauging if this sounds like something that could be viable and doable?

One additional thing I forgot to mention that I have a 2 acre wheat foodpatch in middle of pasture which has lots of deer tracks in it this season. Cattle grazer has agreed to plant this annually and can enlarge it upon request.

Tell us more about the property, its characteristics. Shape, size, cover, etc. Since this one is small, what about surrounding properties.

Pm if you would be interested in leasing spring turkey only. I'd be willing to barter rights or pay for them. Let me know if interested.

roperty is trapezoidal, kind of pie L-shaped. Probably 800-1000 yards front to back and 1200-1400 yards across the bend, left to right. As mentioned, moderate brush on all sides, probably couple hundred yards in from each direction opening up to about a 25 acre pasture in the middle with mesquite flats. Prickly pear in the front, back couple of hundred yards of brush. A nice mix of mesquite brush with semi-open pasture, intermittent mesquite flats. The mesquite flats seem to be where the majority of the bucks make their rubs. The tank is probably a half acre to acre large and seems to be fairly deep; it was put in before I purchased property 6 years ago. It holds water well since fed by runoff from county road. Acreage across county road on front side is fairly thick brush and in excess of 1000 acres. Properties to west side are fairly brushy and several hundred acres in size. There is some hunting that direction but seems fairly minimal. To the south side the property is a couple of thousand acres with some open pasture and cattle grazing with intermittent mesquites and some oaks and mesquite further back in pasture. This area is probably the more hunted property around but still doesn't seem excessive in terms of gunshots. To the east side, the adjoining property is 50 acres of moderate brush with no hunting; the 40 acres adjoining to that is my cattle neighbor whom grazes my property in the offseason and he hunts some.

I'd need to give some thought on this one. Turkey is probably the most abundant game animal I have coming through there and not sure whether I'd lease that out separately or at all in the Springtime. During deer season that would be obviously included.

I would think you wouldn't have a problem finding someone to fill a spot.

DQ is a good guy and easy to deal with, have nothing but good things to say about him.

Thanks TRex, just thinking this arrangement could maybe work for a fellow THF'r.

I think it is a great idea and could work out great for both parties. If I wasn't already searching for time to get to the places I have, I would be all over it. cheers
