Anyone wanting a quail lease after deer season needs to get in touch with hookemhorns, he has a heck of a deal for you!

Where is it? How big, and what does he want an acre? Anything else?

I am working with our ranch manager to fill some spots. The ranch is 4000 acres on highway 62 north of childress. No one has quail hunted the property in at least 5 years. We have a ton of birds and that is no exaggeration. The lease would be starting in January through the end of quail season. We have deer hunters before that, I am one of the deer hunters. He is looking for a group of 4 guys for $1500/gun. He has dropped from $2000 because of limiting the season. Whoever leases will have exclusive rights, no one else will be quail hunting. The property has CRP, mesquite flats, draws, irrigated crop fields, 4 water wells and no cattle at this point. If you are seriously interested and want to schedule a trip or have other questions please let me know. You can email or call.

This the PM he sent me, like I said you should contact him. He's a THF member and has an ad in the land and lease section

Tigger's lease will right at 6 hours. I plan to take some long weekends. That lease would be about the same time

I've had several that way. We could leave home well after daylight on Friday morning, hunt Friday afternoon, Saturday morning and afternoon, put the muscle sore dogs down for a couple of hours on Sunday morning, then get time for some football.

Thats a good price in an area where there could be decent bird numbers. I heard some good reports in the Childress area last year. If I wasn't on two leases already I would take a look.

$6,000 seems a little high for less than 2 months of hunting to me...

Not counting how much you're going to spend in fuel to get there, because that is literally the middle of nowhere.

Where did you get $6K? Hookem's lease is $1500, mine is more but I get the whole season, last weekend of Oct. to the last weekend in Feb. and it's not $6K either.

That is what I was thinking. What is the going rate per gun. Last I looked it was way over priced or at least way over what am willing to pay for two months.

$1,500 per hunter to hunt 4,000 acres for two months is not a bad deal. And what does location have to do with it? It's not the landowners fault that you don't live 20 minutes away. It's a fair price.

Two of us joined my last lease together for $3,500. We killed two quail.

$1,500 x 4 people equals $6,000. I promise you nobody lives 20 minutes away from this place. If you were from the panhandle you would know that. I'm sure its a nice place and somebody from Dallas will jump on it and go 3 times which is exactly what I'd want if I was the land owner.
