Just curious what some of you pay? And what does that get you? Acreage, utilities, quality of animals, etc..

100 kabillion dollars for scrub chock full of spikes, does, and jackalopes.

Straight up, Most of my life I've hunted on family or friends. Recently I did a couple of hunting leases. Not my cup of tea. Full disclosure, I'm just not that mad at Bambi anymore. I can buy a lot of ribeyes for a couple of grand.

My portion of mine is 1500, and the place blows.

It's fairly close and a getaway from the city. I like the neighbor guys.
I'm looking for another spot, if anyone will take me on.

We paid around $6.50 an acre, that was just WT, turkey, dove and quail. It had water and electricity for campers also.

That is a wide open question. It's kinda like asking how much a vehicle costs. There is everything out there from a 20 year old yugo to a 2017 Ferrari.

I pay about 6.50 an acre for my place in East Texas. If that helps.

One thing is for sure.

$8.00 per acre for year around access. We have deer, turkey, quail, dove, duck, Sandhill cranes and hogs. Deer population is ok and buck quality is fair. Population of quail, turkey, dove and hogs is insanely good.

Hill Country I see $15 an acre as a norm. But have heard of $50 an acre (my buddy leases his 50 acres for $2500) and $25 is not uncommon. (a family friend has 400 acres leased at $10,000).

What county do you hunt in with all of that?? Nice to see a fellow Mesquite person on here.

$1,000 per gun. It was $400 per gun when my dad first got on it years ago. Our awesome landowner won't let us pay for water or electricity either, so that's included.
