That's what we paid for a hunting lease back in Mississippi when I first started deer hunting in the 70's. I can also remember paying $2.50 an acre for a Champion Paper Company lease in East Texas back in the late 80's. Now it seems Weyerhaeuser is asking $10 an acre for leases in that same area of Mississippi that I hunted as a kid. And I suspect they will have no problem finding customers.

Some good leases available for those with ties in Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and other states.

When I was a kid in the early 70's my Dad paid $50 for a season lease in Mason county. Fond memories of that place, it was Sterling Jordan's place.

In early and mid 60s my gramps would trade some whiskey and couple gallons of homemade wild mustang grape wine to a LO in Frio county for hunting on a couple thousand acres. Was some dayum good hunting too. We were only ones that hunted it.

Leased a place in Kendal Co for $2.25 per acre from 1990-2012. Gave up the lease to hunt our property and turned it over to a couple of my family members that now pay abpit $3.00 per acre on it.

780 acres low fence and they have killed a deer in the 140's I think every year they have been on it.

I still remember my dad and his hunting buddies (9 total on lease) gripping when their 900 acre Llano county lease went up to $450 (split 9 ways, or $50/paid hunter) in the late 60s and that was for all hunting rights, could put 1 or 50 hunters on it, LO didn't care, just ridding the land of deer. Each of the paid hunters (9x) could bring their wife & kids to hunt (off own license, not the paid hunter's license) which was their group's rules, not LO rules.

My first lease I had to pay for out of my own pocket was roughly 1979 was 240 acres northwestern Williamson county for 2 hunters (of 1050 acre ranch), $200 per hunter and we could bring our wife to deer hunt with us. We had access to the entire 1050 acre ranch year around for fishing (about a dozen well stocked dirt stock tanks) and dove plus could bring friends for dove hunting. The second year, the old landowner went up to $240 & built us a 16x16 3.5 sided pole barn to use as a cabin like he had done with the other hunters at the main hunting camp (the other 910 acres) 25 plus years earlier that they converted into a very nice camphouse, they had electricity run to theirs too and added on another 10x16 extension for bunks.

I hunted there 4-5 years without another price increase and then went to hunt with my dad since there was an opening on his lease ... still kicking myself for letting that one go! bang ... 30-35 minutes from my house, year around access, hunt anything except varmints (the old man and his brother still headlighted) and armadillos (that's another story).

My dad and I pulled up to a farmhouse in about '77. Dad asked the man if we could hunt his back acres that evening. Man says, "Yeah, but do you want to hunt or kill a deer? If you want to hunt, have at it. If you want a deer, just sit down by the feedlot about 5:30."

I've seen enough urban deer hunters to never allow another here again.

In 30 years, they'll be sitting around saying "I remember way back in the 2010's we could get a lease for less than $15 an acre. I sure wish I could get that again."

I've only leased a place one time in my life and it was 12 sections and paid 50 cents an acre, when we hunted down on the Pecos, Pop and 5 friends leased 8,000 acres for 100 dollars apiece.
