Just received a phone call from land owner he is selling the property and not guaranteeing deer hunting this year.
Was a small family 4 of us. Almost September and now What? Anyone have any ideas or help on what we can do.
Lesson learned no contract. What happened to a mans word.

Sorry to hear that. I also learned the hard way to have a contract. Best of luck.

Sucks man. IMO a contract doesn't even secure your spot on a particular ranch. It's nice to have, but how many guys are willing to spend money on attorneys and drag it out if the LO wants you off?

We're on a new place this year and the previous guys have hunted it for the past 18 years with no contract. LO apparently doesn't do contracts.

Is he selling or is the property sold? If the property is just going on the market it takes time to find a buyer and close the deal. You just might luck out this year unless he lists at s fire sale price.

It happened to us 2 years ago. Nothing you can do. I've seen even with a contract with the land owner, property gets sold, and hunters still lose the property. Our place was for sale for 2 years, and we were able to hunt there for 2 good years.

I NEVER told my hunters about a sale unless it was already done. Hunters who know they're hunting their last season on a place are not gonna be very good stewards.

And this situation is why I decided decades ago to own my own property. Leasing is so risky.

I heard that. We were told we wouldn't be hunting a place in Schleicher the next year. Opening weekend of gun, the new guy came into camp telling us about 'new rules'. Everybody shot deer that year...I mean everybody.

I decided, years ago, that leasing sucks..this after several bad experiences. Fortunately, I am a "Texas Vet" and bought my own place. I never look back..
