A buddy and myself are thinking about leasing this 112 acre piece of land, the pic on top was after it was cleared and pine trees were planted in 2005, the bottom pic is as it currently sits, the patch of trees at the top is national forest




Only problem is it does not have road access, it is about a 15 minute walk parking on the highway and walking a pipeline easement (that the local national forest had claimed ownership of a few years back) to a powerline easment before getting to the property. This land has not been messed with much since 05, plenty of hog signs and some big buck rubs. Not a lot of hardwoods for natural protein. From what i understand the going rate for a lease in East Texas is around $12 an acre.... with road access of some sort. There is a big hunting lease that neighbors the property so there is some pressure from those hunters.

What would y'all be willing to pay for a lease like this?

We don't like the idea of leaving the truck parked on the highway and a 15 minute walk dont sound like much till you've got a full pack of gear and rifle hanging from your shoulders.

A 15 minute walk from your parked vehicle, in east Texas, is all the time needed for the local meth cooks to steal all your stuff.

Personally, I wouldn't take a lease like that for free.

How is there not road access if they were able to access it and cut those trees down?

We walked it for 5 hours yesterday, and one of our biggest concearns was the truck and the power co-op guys that were working the power poles, finding our packs that we left stashed after a couple of hours of walking and marking property boundaries

They used a private access to a neighboring property you get to the powerline easment, in the process the access road got messed up and that property owner said no more use of it, period, although it was repaired immediately. Family quarrel type thing

We were thinking around $6 per acre, that would at least cover her taxes every year. no water, shelter or power.we can put a temp pole and have the co-op drop a line to it though

The power line is but it goes through private property and stops before it gets to another road, the pipeline is owned by the national forest right there so we cant drive on it

As someone has already said in east Texas if you donít want it stolen, you better plan on staying guard every night. Soundís like this property is more trouble than itís worth.

From the sound of it the best idea is just save your money on this property and find another. No matter how desperate you are for a place itís not worth the stress of wondering if your stuff will still be there while youíre out there.

So are you going to be walking onto private property carrying a weapon to access the land you plan to lease/hunt?

How does the landowner legally access the property?
