Going to look at a new lease north of Bohnam 4his afternoon depending on weather.

We know lease has been used for duck hunting only. L.O.decided to open it for a year around lease. So there is no history to go by. L.O. will not be there to ask questions.

Property has tanks & bottoms and at least 1 wheat field of unknown size.
rain is going to wipe any tracks/bedcing area no racks to see even if we spook deer up.covered in oak trees.

So what other indicators would you look for inthe short frame of time we will be there

If you are dealing with a middleman then I would tread lightly and ask a ton of question. I hate paying a middleman to lease from someone else. If there are deer there will be other sign from the past seasons and if there are a lot of deer there will be fresh tracks.

Check for sheds around the wheat field.

Those can be planted by the guy showing the lease easily.

Ask for references, it may have only been used for duck hunting but anyone duck hunting will know something about the property. Stop and talk to neighbors.

Talk to member '"Hopalong" or "pintailman" on here or TFF. They have big duck hunting operation up there.

I'd corn the roads for a few days and do some scouting if the LO will allow. Should get a decent idea on numbers this way.

Thanks guys for the ideas. I was being rushed for time. Due to the weather
we were told it was too wet & muddy to get Trucks in there. They told me that I have right of first refusal

That will give me time to contact game warden
we are requesting address & map coordinates ( will pull it up on google earth)
This should allow us to see whats around it.
it will also give me time to get my 4 wheeler loaded on a trailer to take with us. If I like it will just lease the whole place between 2 of us and worry about adding hunters at a later date.

I still don't think that we will have multiple days to access the property & put corn out etc etc and see what shows up. We will not be as rushed like today was going to be, But will have to decide that day or it go's up on the lease market.

Thanks hetman

How far north of Bonham? Up near the river can be good. Be ready for lots of hogs!

That's a very popular waterfowl hunting area. What type game are you after?
