I am thinking of leasing my 77 acres next year (BUT) not like a normal lease. First, my wife and I would also be hunting the property. (We hunt together out of one stand.) Second, the lease would only run from December 1st till the last day of the season which is somewhere around the 15th of January if you count the last two weeks where it is doe and spike late season. So, the lease would have been hunted a full month before you were able to begin hunting. No camping on the property, you would have to stay in town, (15 minutes) away. You could only hunt from one stand located on the far end of the property, unless my wife and I were not there and then you could hunt our stand if you wanted to. However, in all honesty, the stand that we would put you in is by far the best during the second half of the season. I would provide stand and feeder and plant a small food plot in front of your feeder.
The opportunity of getting a good buck…fair. It is hunting after all and this is an AR county. The opportunity of getting a doe…excellent. Your wife or child can hunt on your tag, but no big bucks killed during the month of January, only does and spikes.
So, my question after this long story is how much could I…should I charge.
Here is a link to my place. Yes, it is for sale but I’m taking it down after this month.http://www.landsoftexas.com/property/5719-Hwy-2526-Carbon-Texas-76435/2916453
Thank you for any opinions that you may have on this question.
