I have a trusted friend who asked me if I would lease to him. My wife and I are open to the idea but don't want to get screwed. I have no idea what to charge him. Only 30 acres but has always produced decent deer and plenty of hogs. Has cabin with electricity, running water, everything needed is included. I have 2 stands he would have access to and 2 feeders. Freestone County. He only wants it during deer season and maybe 2-3 off season weekends for hogs. I'm guessing about $700 but really I need you guys to give me guidance. I know it's a small place but most leases don't provide lodging as I understand it. Can you help me out?
Thanks,
Gary

$40 an acre? $700 is a good deal but $1200 seems a bit steep. Then again, if someone's willing to pay it, that's the value.

If he's a trusted friend, split expenses with him and don't charge him a lease fee. I wouldn't charge a trusted friend to shoot a deer on my place.

The question is what is it worth to you.

That small of a place, I wouldn't want another hunter on it.

I offered to trade labor for access but he declined that. I don't want to take his money but if I'm giving him a set of keys I need something.

I had a deal like that for a couple of years. Ended up giving the guy money and meat every year anyway being the amount of work he had me do at his place, I felt didn't justified the access he gave me. Too bad he sold the place.

$40 an acre is fair and maybe yours getting the best end of this deal.

700.00 for 30 acres, consider yourself lucky and lease to your freind. You trust him to take care of the cabin and property and you can't put a price on that. I think your overcharging but lease to your friend. You might what to discuss a minimal fee to stay in cabin to cover electrical costs.

If he declined exchanging his labor for free access, I wouldn't want him on my places.
$1200 is cheap for cabin with water & electricity, blinds & feeders, but, 2 hunters on 30 acres is at least 1.5 too many unless you have a high deer population or over population.

On small places like that, it's not really a "per acre" deal, it's more of a trespass or minimum pay to play fee.

I'd ask for $1000 minimum, especially with a cabin.

I would tell him to keep the feeders full year round, leave me a case of beer in the fridge and call me when you're planning to be out there so we don't stumble over each other.
