Guys,

Newer to posting questions, long time lurker. I am trying to see what others think is a fair price for a lease approximately 15 miles SE of Pearsall, TX that has brush and surrounded by agriculture fields and sporadic other brush covered adjacent lands. The lease is 156 acres and has no running water or electric to the land. The blinds (4) and 2 feeders provided by landowner. The other feeders (3) and corn are provided by the hunters (3) total. This is a first time lease for the guys currently on it. We have been maintaining the grass cutting and corn for the feeders since August. Landowner has road cut to help maintain roads a couple of times. Landowner is a great guy, but lease agreement allows for only 1 buck and 1 doe per family. Based on just what I have described what would be a fair price per hunter/family in your opinions? I am trying to judge where we fall in the lease price/acre range. Any feedback is appreciated.

Your landowner will probably be able to get more than the going rate on $/acre due to the small tract and generous limits. My advice is to judge what it's worth to you to spend vs how the season shakes out.

$500-$550 a gun. Anything above that wouldn't be worth it, imo.

I think it's all relative to what you can afford. There are so many companies that have sucked up these leases to accommodate their clients. I know that I leased a smaller place than you and just recently let it go. I paid way to much for the property but it's all that I could find. If you like the place and kill deer don't worry about what people on this forum say.

3 hunters on a 150 acres is way too much pressure for that area.

You likely will have better results just to pay for a package hunt somewhere.

If youre killing three bucks and 3 doe on 150 acres don't even bother trying to price it on a $/per acre basis. And know that theres a good chance year one is going to be your best by far so you might not want to put too much work into land or infrastructure improvements or even consider supplemental feeding. Good luck, hope it holds some mature bucks this year.

Great area but too many people for the acreage. 500+ acres per member is common in that area

OK,, so how much is he asking,,,, we are all curious. In my humble opinion 1 hunter at $1500--$2000 would be about right on 150 acres. fouzman had it right,,, Another thought, you could sub divide it into 10 acre tracks and sublease those.

$16.50 an acre with no water or electric? And three guys on top of one another? No thanks. That's assuming it's $2,500/year for all three of you. If it's $2,500/gun that's just stupid.
