Been 4 years, owner retired sons took over closed down lease had two weeks to vacate. Have feeders, blinds, trailer and hunting materials stored. Just can't approve $2000 plus to lease to hunt. Fixed income now, retired.

If the hunters haven't royally screwed up in some way, a LO giving only 2 weeks to vacate is being a complete sphincter.

Hunt long enough, and you will realize that the chances are good that you are going to, sooner or later, lose your current lease. Make the most of it, but always be "like a rolling stone" - ready to move on.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you store them?

We lost our lease this year. Half the blinds got chainsawed and we had a good bon fire, some equipment is at the new lease, some is in my backyard and sold some of it. My buddy has a nice 12 ft tower stand as a yard ornament until I can sell it. The rest is at another buddies ranch or it’s on loan to someone. I owe more than a few people some beer money for the help they’ve given me. I had 6 blinds, 7 corn feeders, 2 protein feeders, 2 hog traps and enough hog panels and t-posts to make 7 feeder pens.

Lost a couple of leases over the years due to landowners either passing or selling. We always had in our contract a minimum of 90 days to remove our property, which was legally binding in the event of a sale. Fortunately both times we found a lease within 30 - 45 minutes of the old one. First thing we did (outside of actively looking for another lease) was to bring all the feeders/blinds/t-posts/fencing etc. back to camp and staged for loading to the new place. It is a heck of a lot of hard work as you can imagine, and takes a bunch of time - not just transporting, but scouting new place for blind and feeder locations as well. We have been fortunate that both times we found leases quickly - either through friends or right here on THF.

We had one around Junction that was sold in our 7th year. The new LO gave us 72 hours to move our gear out. We stored our gear at different homes for a couple of years until we found a new lease.

It's the ultimate young man's game right? It will never happen to you. But it does. Hasn't to us yet, but there is always that chance. Every year. I think about all the summer work I do just to pack up as much as I can and get out. We don't want to improve the place too much. Keep the roof leaking just a bit, keep the screened in porch open in a couple of places, fence in disrepair just a bit. Keep the roads crappy so when the prospective buyer comes in when you don't know, he'll hit that rough spot and curse a little. I don't think I could get all my stuff off in two weeks, I'd think about the chainsaw and burn route myself.

First lease in Mason Co..... LO and sister divided the land among the grandkids, thing were good the first year. by the 4 year, grandsons had crazy ideas, started letting friends come out during the week the last year, called mid March and said we had two weeks to get our stuff off. One pasture went from 2300 acres and got divided into 6 owners, our pasture went from 1800 acres divided by 4 owners now.
2017, Brown county. LO had dementia, wanted payments in gold bars and went up to $15k for 300 acres. I heard the daughter sold half to the guy that owns the castle on Lk Brownwood.
We stored all our feeders, stands and my hut at a storage unit for 5 months till we found a new lease.

If I lose the lease i am on, i will not renew. I will sale all my feeders/blinds/stuff and just move to an outfitter basis.

By the time I added up all the damn trips/fuel/stuff out there I can just go on an outfitter hunt.

I would love to have some space of my own for my kiddos to grow up with the outdoors but leases come and go and with everyone moving into texas land is an high demand

Have lost 2 in the past both due to the guys who had grazing and hunting rights being kicked off the place. We paid those guys so we had to go as well. Had stands,feeders, jeep and all other items stored at a friends place in the country. There was one other lost due to owner passing and his son took over and we had to move. This time all my gear came to my back yard, it is big. Fortunately have been on the same lease now going on 18 years.
If I lost this lease I would get on another asap, I enjoy the activity too much. As long as I can walk I will hunt somewhere.

I lost a lease that I had been on over 10 years. The LO let his adult son take over leasing the ranch. The son had never done this before, and did not know what he was doing. He first wanted to raise the price, which was fair, because we were paying a below market rate. The problem started when he would not set a price, so I made an offer. Do to his lack of knowledge, business skill, and maturity, we never even had a conversation regarding my offer. He suddenly changed his mind, and said he would not lease it at all, or lease it to his friends. The main thing is to enjoy whatever lease you are on, and have a plan B ready when the time comes.
