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.
