6 guns on 200 acres? Way to many for me.

You know the old saying. If it sounds to good to be true. Just need to be careful around that area as most of the properties around the 2 refuges in that area are farm land and a lot of folks poach around there.

1 hunter per 50 acres. What could go wrong? Maybe they can all bring friends also, thataway they can make sure & shoot up everything that moves, & maybe each other.

Saw plenty of game when out there driving around. Deer, turkeys, javelina, and quail. All blinds are elevated except for one which is the owners because he is limited to a wheelchair. there is a lot of work to be done around camp, that would be a requirement also.

Better recheck your math... 1 hunter per 33 acres then throw in the owner that would be 1 hunter per 25 acres now. You would have to have a very high deer density for everyone to kill a buck. That would be 7 bucks( at just 1 per hunter) total off of 200 acres. If you have a buck to doe ratio of 1 to 3 that would mean a deer for every 7.5 acres. If you figure 2 bucks per hunter then you would need a deer to 3.75 acres.
My first question would be was it leased last year? If so, then what happened to all the other hunters from last year? I would also ask if he allows his family to hunt?

the owner is one of the six. 4/5 are there from last year and have been for a while. One guy moved to Florida, which would be the spot i would take.

Talk to the other members and ask how their experience has been on the property. What have/do they see and what have they killed on a yearly basis. You'll get a good idea whether or not it's worth it.

So, basically, the owner is getting $37.50 an acre plus trophy fees, and he still gets to hunt? Let's say, just for fun, that three trophy bucks are killed with a rifle, and one with a bow. That brings his yearly total to $11,000, or $55 an acre, and he can still hunt his property as much as he wants. That is an absolutely killer deal for the landowner, but those guys are getting fleeced IMO.

thanks for the input. I think im going to do it though. Just so i have a place to go all year and it is only 40mins from my house. Plus the opportunity to harvest a bull nilgai that would run at least $2500.

Do what feels right to you is what I say! Check with the current hunters and try and get an objective evaluation of the property and experience; you'll then have your answer.
