welcome I never blame a landowner for getting as much as he can for his hunting rights. But if they are crooked then I am with you.

If there is someone willing to pay it, how is it taking advantage of others?

In my experience with leases, I have had access to more land than I can afford at a fraction of the cost to buy it.

There is no doubt that lease prices have gone up, but so has everything else. Seems like if there was a great lease with great hunting for cheap...it would probably be full and stay full confused2

And welcome by the way

That's true the good one that are reasonable stay full and that's the problem too many hunters and not enough land... Supply and demand sorry for being bitter but it is really hard to find a decent place for fair money!

look at it from a land owners prospective, your gonna crap his roads out when it rains, he don't know what you are gonna do.He has no idea from the start if your legit or an a hole, that's why prices are high.From Landowners I know more heartache than its worth.

I see your point I really do now that you put it that way, that's why I guess it's better to know someone rather than try the websites.... Maybe I will visit coffee shops and meet owners or ranch hands personally,worth a shot!

That's a pretty big slump in business, was it because of population of deer dwindling in that area or just a bad year of hunting? I have read many post of not seeing any deer for the first time in 10 years or so but can't recall what areas.

I understand completely and not berating you at all bud. Prices have been climbing and I would hate to be looking for a lease right now, especially a cheap one.

In my experience, there are a few that pop up on occasion on websites like this one, craigslist, etc. but for the most part, the good ones are from people who know people and never advertise. Makes it tough for someone, especially if they have been out of hunting for a few years.

That's one thing I really like about the forum, it helps to bring like minded people together and you never know who you are talking too. I have met some great guys and gals and eventually, some great opportunities may come up.

Drought hurt alot of numbers in different areas. The late rains and acorn crops didn't help either. Late rains and warm temps through November added alot of natural vegetation that we don't usually see. The deer don't have to travel as much and feed isn't important. Makes the hunting a little tougher.
