Me and 2 buddies got on a deerlease out west a little over a month ago. when our lease started we tried to go down there but the "landowner" was full of excuses about how he was still in contract with an old lease member. I had lots of suspicion so I contacted my cousin who is a game warden and after a little investigation it turns out this guy is not the land owner and has scammed my group of guys and several others on this property and 1 other piece of property. needles to say we are out a lot of money and this guy is in some big trouble. Does anyone have any openings on a lease or know anyone that does? we got caught up in an unfortunate situation and are desperate. thanks!

Sorry to hear about your problem. Lots of outlaws in this business. I took over the hunting management on my properties several years ago just because of folks like him.

There were a few leases up not to long ago though. One that was 70 acres that everyone was dogging that could be a hotspot

You should look in the "Land and Leases" forum in the last section of the "forum list". Several leases available there.

Welcome.

Its so sad to hear about all the people ripping off fellow hunters. Cant just go off of a handshake or your word
anymore. Good luck in your search, make sure you talk to several past leasors on the place and get all the info you
can beforehand.

My son-in-law and 2 of his buds got taken for 3k by this scumbag...at least they gave him a check that has cleared the bank, so they have some evidence of payment.They leased a place near Sweetwater from him; kept wanting to get keys so they could setup their feeders, ect.,but it was one excuse after another...GF died; his daughter came down with West Nile, so and so..they kept calling his cell # and finally got a reply from a Game Warden who had his cell and informed them he was in custody...GW sending them forms to fill out and told them the guy had taken hunters for 40K ! Since his name has already been revealed..Josh Nathan Gilbert is his name.Can't find any info from Nolan County Jail...here in Tarrant County you can do an inmate search.Keep me posted on updates, and thank you and your cousin.
