I'm done with leasing

too expensive =
too many hunters,
arguing about filling feeders,
stand placement,
who's claiming what blind,
bringing junk from home and leaving it,
throwing plastic plates, utensils and beer cans in the fire

I would rather pay/cry once and not have to worry about anything other than shooting straight and writing the check. I Have a great week long experience. Leasing is for the young who don't know better.

every once in a blue moon, everyone "might" get along. Always that 1 guy who thinks he runs the whole deal, knows it all, etc. Ya'll who are or have been on a deer lease know what I'm talking about.

I got on my first lease last year, the only member not part of the same family and it has been nothing but good for me. They have helped with putting up blinds and feeders and showed me a bunch of great spots and let me choose...

Oh, and I met them on this forum. up

You are hunting with the wrong group it seems.

I had the same problem, Too many 40-50 year old "kids". Bought my place 10 years ago and never looked back. It's just 100 acres but suits me fine.

I've been leasing for 20 years or so and just now getting to the point where we have established a good core group. We're of all ages, hunted off and on with each other over the years, understand each other's personalities. It's taken time and weeded through a lot of hunters, but we're in a good place.
I've been there buzzsaw. Sometimes you got to keep your mouth shut and let the little things go, other times you got to make tough decisions.
I've been considering buying my own place for a couple years, but at the end of the day, I enjoy the comradely, and worry less about who hunts where or shoots what as long as we're having a good time and have similar goals.

Done both. Owned my own ranch and leased. I prefer hunting with others and camp life. Depends on how a lease is set up and run. Some are a mess and others run well. End of day boils down to common respect

Leased for years, never had a problem that wasn't easily solvable.

If throwing disposable plates in the fire is such a deal breaker I got a feeling it might be more you than them. eek2

Good luck, if you think leasing is expensive owning is a lot more.

In my experience, there is always that "one guy", but for those of you who make it work and have good lease partners, congratulations. The end of my leasing was when that one guy told me where I could hunt, even though I was paying the same $$$ as everyone else. Told him what I thought of his idea and finished the year hunting only when he was not. It took a couple of years, but I was able to buy a small place and set it up like I want it. I control the who, what, where, when and how which is perfect for me.

I will say, I do miss being at camp with a group, but have a few friends that are occasional hunters so I invite them out at times during season - mainly for camaraderie. The other negative is when there is work to be done, most times I have to do it myself with no extra hands. I make it work.

And now that I think about it, maybe it is me that is that "one guy".

I got rid of those you speak of, every once in a while I get one, but when they come aboard they know the rules and stay might be short.

Best thing to do is get a couple simple minded guys that consider hunting making one or two trips a year and get them in on the lease. Even though they don't do anything and probably shoot one deer a year they shouldn't have shot they don't leave much footprint and you can do your own thing. The other two guys on our place our genuine people but not much for working or hunting but like to go once or twice a year and pay there share in feed, blinds, lease dues, etc. and hardly ever hunt. Doesn't bother me at all but I know where your talking about buzzsaw.

I gave up on leasing years ago. Bought my own place and I'm glad I did.
