Lately, I've noticed quite a bit of negative posts about leasing, and most of the posters seem to disagree with the price or the rules regarding guests. I can completely understand being frustrated about not being able to find a lease that allows you to bring your kids or wife. But, I wanted to explore lease pricing to hopefully help us better understand what a fair price really is. I thought about doing a poll, but with all the factors regarding amenities I thought it would be too simple to just do a poll based on price alone.

So, what do you pay for your lease? Please list some of the factors that influence your price like location, acreage, amenities, guest policy, year-round access and proximity to an urban area. Thanks guys!

I'll start off. I pay $1575, which comes out to about $10/acre. My lease is in Stephens County, and is about 2 hours from the center of the DFW metroplex. We have 930 acres and 6 total hunters. We have electricity at camp (we all have our own campers) but have to haul in water from the nearest town. Guests are allowed but anything they harvest counts off my quota, which is usually one trophy, one spike and one doe. There are cattle on the lease.

Paying 1575 I bet you guys have a waiting list a mile long. Personally price is usually that last factor, if the lease is within 4 hours of me and they allow kids.

I pay $3195 per gun on Mule Deer lease in the Trans Pecos region of West Texas or .37/acre. 8 guns total on 69,000 acres and we do a 7 yr lease, then renew. Mule Deer only season lease and we are allowed a buck of our choice. No housing provided and it is 25 miles to town where we stay in a hotel. It is 430 miles from my house to ranch HQ. No guests are allowed.

Lease we just lost was $6000/yr for 585 acres with cabin electricity / water. It was an annual lease with some exotics in Bandera county. It was a great place, sadly it was sold. We were allowed two bucks, unlimited varmints, and state limits on all other game. We had 4 guns so it was $1500/gun.

7k acres, water, electricity, walk in cooler, slab and skinning "A" frame, semi-community shed with satellite TV, year around access, all game animals except quail. Guest are allowed but have to hunt with paying member. They can shoot does, spikes and culls that do not count toward the paying members quota but a trophy counts as the paying members of a guest takes it. Any exotic can be taken except blackbucks. Near San Angelo. $6/acre

State limits on all game animals and no cattle on property. I also share cost to plant about 3 to 4 acres of food plots. Three nice box blinds provided as well.

Rolling plains and northern hill country should average 10-12 unless you have River frontage. Water and electric add 2. Cows subtract 2-3,

We pay $10 an acre for 1000 acres (actually is 1,100 per google up ) less than 2 hours from city with 6 guys. Water and electricity included with year round access. No rules but the states so guests are no issue which I take if no one else will be there to shoot a doe/hog if they like. We normally take 3 bucks and a few does/spikes a year. Only issue is cows but they have only messed up one hunt in 5 years. They have plenty of land to roam. Hopefully we'll get some rain to fill up our duck tank. There are 7 water sources though. Windmills were just converted to solar pumps and 4 tanks. We provide our own lodging which is pretty nice being over a mile from the gate.

Buddy up the road pays $4k each but has lodging provided for and over 6000 acres and all stands/feed provided for. They just draw for blinds with whoever is hunting that day.

For me it's all about hunting opportunity. I used to hunt mule deer in west Texas on a place owned by a friend but the short season and 10 hour drive limits opportunity. Since I live in east Texas I decided to take advantage of the cheaper leasing opportunity that timber company land provides. So now, for around half of what most folks have posted that they pay, I have two leases from Campbell. One is less than a mile from my house and one is seven miles. So now I hunt every weekend and before the time changes, I can bow hunt every afternoon when I get off work. I sleep in my own bed every night and on the weekends I can take care of honey-do's in between hunts. It's a win/win for me.
