Lease rates vary through out TX so here is a question. Comanche Co. 200 acres with a small shack 4 hunters $6000 ? One deer over 13 inches and one spike and two does. Deer are small no management every in place and lots of spikes.Open on three sides only timbered on one side. Would anyone out there say a place like this is worth $30 acre or $7.50 per acre per hunter ? Just wondering. I figure leases at total acres times price per acre. Then you add 4 hunters to cover that cost. IMO

1000 acres at 7.50 per acre $7500 divided by 6 hunters $1250 per hunter ( My Math )

No place is worth $30 an acre for small deer on 200 acres in my opinion. I have been on really good ranches with some big deer for $15-$20 an acre just my two cents, but there is always someone looking.

I would say this is a place the owner is looking to scam some money on, and go through hunters like crazy. First of all, what 200 acre place with woods on only one side could support taking 16 deer a year from? Second, that price is far fetched. I would be passing on that one.

I dont understand why so high. They said that is the going rate. NOT IMO $7.50 maybe the rate but that is for total acres then divided by 4 hunters. IMO Shack is like a horse barn closed in and pretty rough has TV and bathroom but roof leaks. Lots of deer but a 100 lb deer is rare. It is only available Sept 1 through Jan 5

I think deer leases are like Bass Boats to dang high.

I'd look elsewhere. Our lease in the panhandle is costing us just a little over $5 an acre.

That's crazy money and crazy number of hunters. I guess they think someone desperate will jump on it.

I pay 6 bucks an acre. It's a small place and 350 acres and , we mostly get 2 big bucks, one spike and two hogs each season for 2,100.

A deer over 13 inches is sad, its not how the managed ranches run. Our rules are bucks outside the ears, around 18 inches or more. Our place is the best deer lease I have ever been on, its my 3rd year here. Rules are strict here and I like it. Our hunters are good minded hunters not looking to shoot anything that moves.

Just looked at the Mills County COC website. 13 posts from groups wanting leases, not a single post of an available lease. Sellers market right now, unfortunately.

That is crazy high IMO. 4 hunters is 2 too many at least. No way there is that many deer in the area to shoot that many. I lived around that area for 40 years. They ain't there.

I just got off a lease N of Comanche near Sipe Springs, it was a small place like that around 300 acres. Was only on it for one year, but it was priced like that. Not enough deer and too much shooting on places around it for my tastes, so I declined to re lease it.

And this is why I will never get off my place. I sure don't shoot a buck every year but get year round access and all game for $9 an acre. Same price for 7 years now. Our guy that only shoots hogs even has a good deal now compared to what is out there. I sure don't want to go find a lease these days. The animals have not appreciated as much as land costs but for most LO they go hand in hand. If land goes up 50% then hunting does as well. They only see the profit if they sell though but want to pass on the appreciated value to hunters which many will pay or they won't have a place to hunt. Make sense to them but not hunters since the game isn't increasing actually.
