What are you guys paying for these type of leases? I'm looking at one right now for $2 an acre. This seems high to me but the place has plenty of quail and its less than an hour from my house. I have a season lease in west Texas that's much much cheaper. I'm probably going to take the place just because it's close and I could probably get out there three or four times a week.

I was wondering what the going rate is for an after deer season quail lease.

That is about the going rate for a top notch ranch that isn't too far a haul from one of the major metroplexes especially if it has utilities on it.

A place that close to home is worth that to me. My place is 6 hours from the front door

Waiting until January to start hunting is a complete deal breaker to me

I supplement those months with trips to Iowa, South Dakota, Kansas, and South Texas. Works out okay. Full season quail leases are pretty well a thing of the past. Very difficult to find one.

I'd pay $2,000 for a place to hunt less than an hour from me for two months.

I was on a deer lease outside of Brady a while back. The land owner was an avid quail hunter and he didn't wait till after deer season to hunt quail on his property. From the deer we saw and the deer we took, I couldn't see a problem with doing both at the same time. Deer hunters are superstitious bunch. If you bird hunt and they don't see deer, it's because you scared them off. If you don't bird hunt and they don't see deer it's because they have gone nocturnal confused2

I'd pay that amount If I had to drive up to 3 or 4 hours.

Just a thought. People pay 800 a day to hunt wild birds.

after deer season lease is a crap shoot -------- if there are a lot of quail on the property you can bet the deer hunters are killing some ( or a lot), if it is thick and you basically can mainly hunt the roads, the deer hunters have already done that, plus the normal quail reduction 2 months into the season. How many birds in Oct has nothing to do with how many birds in Jan when you can hunt it. I lease after deer season, but not until I have been on the property and see for myself what the quail population is at that time.
It comes down to how important is $2,000 to you.

Dune,
I have hunted behind deer hunters for years and never one time had a problem. The deer hunters have always been great allies and resources for us. They keep their feeders going all season and we benefit from it and my deer hunting partners are always giving us locations and bird counts through out the deer season. Besides, they can shoot at all they want with a 30.06 or 7mmMag and I am not too worried about them hitting too many birds. They shooting birds goes against all strategy of them getting to see any deer. I have learned to work with the deer hunters rather than against them. Even this past year, I started on my lease in January and we still were averaging 22-25 big covies a day. I am not one to throw all deer hunters into that category of being quail slayers while they are at the lease. Quite the contrare!

north texas is on point no pun intended. I have had several after deer season quail lease and never a problem.

They might skillet shoot a mess for dinner once or twice but that is it.

That being said I had a quail only lease once that had good deer on it and had to kick off 2 hunters for shooting deer. Excuse I wanted to get my money's worth.
