Pretty sure that the hunters on our place near San Angelo pay $2/acre for quail season and only have access after the season. Not sure if that is a good deal or a bad deal though.

There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE

Most after deer season leases go for about $2 an acre.

It depends on the quail numbers.

It can also depend on habitat. I'm on a 50,000 acre lease for @ 5 grand but it only has about 10-12 acres of good habitat. We are hitting @ 8-15 coveys a day this year, in 3-4 hour hunts. Much of it is underwater, salt flat or sacauiste

Are you hunting the East ranch or the Kenedy?

where I hunt we are finding a covey or so an hour...not worth paying for a "quail lease" but worth hunting if you don't need to shoot a limit.

That's not a bad deal at all. Let me know if you are looking for some hunters. Might be interested depending on where it is. Myself and a friend are always looking. We have a polaris and 2 gsp's.

El Sauz--West of Port Mansfield. The East is across the road--I wasn't aware they were leasing for quail, never seen anyone there.

I've hunted the East. The main gate is off 281. I think I remember that it's 70,000 acres.

That's right--there is more than one East ranch. There is also a East ranch northwest of Port Mansfield. Two East brothers married Kleberg girls. The Klebergs were a hard drinking bunch of rounders, the Easts were conservative and religious. The girls split off their portions of the King ranch a merged them with their husbands' land. El Sauz which is over 50,000 acres was the attorney fee for the partition. So, the East ranches must be bigger than 70,000 acres. The ranch you are talking about runs along the playa country from 281 to Sarita.
The Easts allow no big game hunting on their ranch. Never seen so many tame deer.

Bill,
Here is a link that provides some info on the Easts.
www.eastfoundation.net
The lease I am on is adjacent to the East El Sauz unit. I think the ranch you were on is the ranch that is not in the foundation.
I think the ranch you were on is the Santa Fe ranch, owned by Evelyn East and her kids. I think he was the brother of Robert East who started the foundation.
