................the day before bow opener? I received this 15 minutes ago.

Gentlemen

I have received word from our landowner that the construction that I spoke of in an earlier email will indeed be starting. The project is the construction of wind turbines for electric power. As a result we will not be able to hunt this season. I will be refunding your hunting fee in the next week .Please let me know how you would like your fee refunded (cash or check) and where you would like me to send it. I am sorry for this late notice however at this point there is no other option.



We will be hunting next season so you can leave your blinds, feeders and trailers if you want. You will also be placed on a priority list for participation on the lease next year The rancher has indicated that the construction will take seven (7) months. For those of you who are located near where a wind turbine will be placed I strongly suggest that you move your blinds and feeders out of the area. You can store them in the camp area. Wind turbine sites are indicated by a large PVC pipe with a turbine designation written on it.



Please do anything necessary to secure your personal property within the next two weeks – at that time I will change the gate locks and there will be no access to the ranch until further notice. Also no new blinds or feeders will be allowed to be put up.



Once again I am sorry for this unexpected and unforeseen situation and apologize for the late notice.



I am happy to discuss this situation with you personally. Please call with any questions.

Not much can be said unless you have a lease contract in place stating otherwise. With all that traffic I would not care to hunt anyway.

Well that sucks.....and to have no access to your equipment until next year seems a little odd.

It certainly sucks, but it is the nature of the best when leasing. At least this individual had the professional courtesy to notify you and as long as you do indeed get all of your money back, then you have been treated fairly. I would move all of my stuff and plan to be on another place next year. I wouldn't hunt this place again for a few years after the local wildlife has had a chance to become accustomed to all the turbines and traffic for maintenance. Same thing happens when a place has a lot of oil field traffic, drilling, new wells, etc... The deer eventually get used to it.

If you anticipate 7 month construction time, why not allow hunting season to wrap up (or perhaps thru year end) and start construction early 2016 to minimize your impact to paying hunters. Sounds more reasonable than dropping a last minute surprise. And that construction is only on one end of the property, hardly impacting the entire 7000 acres. No consideration given to the fact that feeders have been filled, pre-season prep work done, etc. Going to make for a long winter.

I would find another place to store my blinds/feeders off of this property and as tShawnB stated, find another place to hunt for the next few years as all kinds of traffic will be on and crossing this lease for the next 7 months. So sorry for your season this year.

Depending on the cover in the area, I wouldn't move off at all for next year. They built on our place two years ago and we had zero problems with deer disruption. It was business as usual even though they pulled out of our place in October. If you have good cover and a good food source the deer will stay. Sucks about the ultra-short notice for this year, though.

Big business is not going to wait or care about the end of hunting season. They have the contract and they are going in there to do their deed. Landowner's can negotiate their own deals with the wind turbine companies or they can negotiate group deals with other landowners. Landowner is going to be compensated no matter what and waiting until hunting season is over could negate the deal. I am sure landowner is making more from the wind turbines than he is the hunting. Not right, no fun, and not fair, but that is the
way it is.

Haha....."hold off on starting a multi-million dollar project that will put big $$$$ in my pocket so my hunters can hunt this season." Yeah, that sounds reasonable!
