Looking at leasing 3400 acres in kent county.Not sure what its going for an acre. All hunting rights included . No electric or water. Would 7 dollars an acre be to high?

There’s not a lot of deer but there’s some big ones. If y’all split it up between 6 men you should be ok, depending on where you’re at. Sub lease the quail to 3 guys on good years and come out great. One of the nicest bucks I’ve seen die was killed with a 20ga slug while quail hunting in Kent county.

How many hunters? Is it established? $7 sounds fair. Understand, not everyone is going to kill a buck. My buddy has had his place for 35 years there which started as only a bird lease as not a deer existed back then. Now he just keeps the birds and deer hunters the other. Our buddy is on another lease there and more of a pig place and a few bucks. Good place for does though. Wheat is key.

You will be lucky if you can take 3 bucks a year off the place. If there are $7k deer there it’s a good deal.

We leased a place west of Jayton on the salt fork back in the early to late 90s. Deer were scarce but BIG. 2 dollars an acre. We built the place up and had a great group of folks. Lease boss shot a 180 class deer that won Bob Sealy's big buck contest. He was invited to a ceremony and had it scored by Horace Gore. He won a new Dodge pickup, 4 wheeler and some other stuff. His story made TTHA magazine. Guess what happened next? Yeah, you guessed it. Some Dallas doctors offered them 4 dollars an acre. We lost that place. Loose lips sink ships.

$2 an acre in 90s sounds a bit undervalued to me. Was that the same price the whole duration you all had it?

DQ. Actually it started out at $1 an acre for a 10k pasture. 10 guns. Like I said deer were scarce. No doe season north of SH 380 back then either. I'm talking '91-'95. Went up to $2 an acre for '96-'99. Quail were great, same with doves. Two fishing lakes covered in ducks in the winter. I know who leases it now. Not uncommon to see numerous deer while driving around the ranch nowadays. I sure miss that place. I've had opportunities to get back on, cant justify it when I own my place here. I miss that red talcum dust, NOT! After all these years when I turn on my A/C I can still smell the salt fork. No kidding.
