What are your most important considerations in selecting a hunting lease excluding cost.
1. Game density.
2. Food/Water source.
3. Lease in relation to game food/water.
4. Neighbors.
5. Travel Time to lease.

what you have looks good, i would add fellow members as well, if they are all friends or if you are going to be part of a group you didnt know, and quality of game.

the travel time to lease has gotten more andm ore important to me lately, not just because of gas prices but with small boys who are always playing something its tough to makea 6 hour drive somewhere.

One of the most important things for me is kid-friendly, probably would be number one. We can move on with the rest from there.

Who I'm dealing with. Lease manager or owner just need to get a good vibe.
Family friendly
Game types, quantity and quality
Limits
Other members
Hunter to acre ratio
Access (and who else)
Distance
Cost
