I'm done with leasing

too expensive =
too many hunters,
arguing about filling feeders,
stand placement,
who's claiming what blind,
bringing junk from home and leaving it,
throwing plastic plates, utensils and beer cans in the fire

I would rather pay/cry once and not have to worry about anything other than shooting straight and writing the check. I Have a great week long experience. Leasing is for the young who don't know better.

every once in a blue moon, everyone "might" get along. Always that 1 guy who thinks he runs the whole deal, knows it all, etc. Ya'll who are or have been on a deer lease know what I'm talking about.

Does that mean there is a spot opened up?

I got on my first lease last year, the only member not part of the same family and it has been nothing but good for me. They have helped with putting up blinds and feeders and showed me a bunch of great spots and let me choose...

Oh, and I met them on this forum. up

You are hunting with the wrong group it seems.

I had the same problem, Too many 40-50 year old "kids". Bought my place 10 years ago and never looked back. It's just 100 acres but suits me fine.

I've been leasing for 20 years or so and just now getting to the point where we have established a good core group. We're of all ages, hunted off and on with each other over the years, understand each other's personalities. It's taken time and weeded through a lot of hunters, but we're in a good place.
I've been there buzzsaw. Sometimes you got to keep your mouth shut and let the little things go, other times you got to make tough decisions.
I've been considering buying my own place for a couple years, but at the end of the day, I enjoy the comradely, and worry less about who hunts where or shoots what as long as we're having a good time and have similar goals.

Done both. Owned my own ranch and leased. I prefer hunting with others and camp life. Depends on how a lease is set up and run. Some are a mess and others run well. End of day boils down to common respect

Leased for years, never had a problem that wasn't easily solvable.

If throwing disposable plates in the fire is such a deal breaker I got a feeling it might be more you than them. eek2

Good luck, if you think leasing is expensive owning is a lot more.

In my experience, there is always that "one guy", but for those of you who make it work and have good lease partners, congratulations. The end of my leasing was when that one guy told me where I could hunt, even though I was paying the same $$$ as everyone else. Told him what I thought of his idea and finished the year hunting only when he was not. It took a couple of years, but I was able to buy a small place and set it up like I want it. I control the who, what, where, when and how which is perfect for me.

I will say, I do miss being at camp with a group, but have a few friends that are occasional hunters so I invite them out at times during season - mainly for camaraderie. The other negative is when there is work to be done, most times I have to do it myself with no extra hands. I make it work.

And now that I think about it, maybe it is me that is that "one guy".

I got rid of those you speak of, every once in a while I get one, but when they come aboard they know the rules and stay might be short.

Best thing to do is get a couple simple minded guys that consider hunting making one or two trips a year and get them in on the lease. Even though they don't do anything and probably shoot one deer a year they shouldn't have shot they don't leave much footprint and you can do your own thing. The other two guys on our place our genuine people but not much for working or hunting but like to go once or twice a year and pay there share in feed, blinds, lease dues, etc. and hardly ever hunt. Doesn't bother me at all but I know where your talking about buzzsaw.

I gave up on leasing years ago. Bought my own place and I'm glad I did.

I'm sure we've all been there. I was lease boss on a place in San Saba and it wore me out. Got so tired of chasing money down. I'm on a great place now just as a hunter. Will only go about 4 times a season. If I shoot a deer, great. If I don't that's fine too. I think every lease will always have guys that are a pain. Leasing/hunting should be fun and when it's not, it's time to move on, have the problem lesser move on, or buy your place. Sounds like you did which is awesome.

Someone has to be the lease "manager/boss" on most decent hunting leases. Very few land owners would want to deal with 10-12 hunters and I can understand that.

My wife's step dad was the lease boss on our lease and he did a good job. It's a hassle running down money and making sure everyone follows the rule so there's no way I'd want that task. Keep to myself and enjoy time hunting with my kids is what I always try to do

all the ones I've been on the others more or less used
it for a party place and to get away from mama.
I wouldn't mind being on one where everyone wanted to hunt
instead of sitting around drunk with radios blaring and
acting like it was their first time away from home.

Buzz, understand your concern. Beer cans in the campfire are a pain, but leaving a empty pint of whiskey is just plain bad manners and shows a lack of breeding and training. Anyone with class knows it is good manners to leave one snort in the bottle for the person who hauls it off.

Along the same train of thought are the "family places" places who want to bring their squalling kids and complaining wives and yet object when someone brings a sexy girlfriend who might be family someday.

You might consider leasing in Arkansas, no feeders and everyone is family. cheers

I got lucky and leased a 150 acre tract and it is just my family and I. Luckily we have a good relationship with land owner. No way could I afford to purchase a property like that at my age.

It was my first time being "in charge" and it was st the request of the landowner. She only wanted to deal with one instead of six, which I get. I think if you have a great group it's not needed, but that's rarely the case in this day. Lease boss on my new place is a great guy

That depends on the mama and why you're getting away from her.

I'm blessed to have both right now. But the feeder at my place is turned off for now, until I can read if the 5 year old grandson is really going to be interested and whether his daddy is going to allow anything but non-stop sports. He's a good dad, just didn't hunt much as a kid and is a workaholic. I'm not the brightest, but sharp enough not to try to force my will on the child.

Makes no sense to spend money on feed for the neighbors to eventually shoot any decent buck.

Church friends are my lease mates. As stated and understandable, the LO wanted one contact and that guy handles the money. Since I'm the oldest, I had a talk with our manager when he started getting a little obsessed with who shot what. He took it pretty well. Feelings and opinions are going to bubble up from time to time, but that's all part of getting along with others. I get irritated and riled up too from time to time.

I was on a place with an older church friend who has since past. He was the manager for TWENTY guys from all over the state and beyond ranging from southern gentlemen bankers to pure dee white trash. He was a saint in my opinion.
