Please don't call, just seeing if there is a market for what I am "thinking" about "maybe" doing if I don't sell the place.
I know it is both small and expensive per acre. But it has some perks. Almost a turn-key lease.
Just wanting to know if I am being "fair" in the market for price I want. You won't hunt my feelings.

100 acres in East Texas, Cass county, made up of:
50 acres in 20-year-old planted pine
50 acres in hardwood creek bottom

Cons:
1. No water
2. No electric
3. Doe season only first two weeks of rifle season unless you hunt with a muzzle loader, then a special extended season.
4. Not looking for meat hunters, but long term management minded.
5. Non deer season, I can hunt hogs once a month on weekend you not there.

Pros:
1. Year round lease
2. Deer, Hogs, Dove, Ducks, (Turkey’s but not really in huntable numbers)
3. Coyotes, Bobcats, Coons, Squirrels, etc.
4. Special two-week buck/doe extended season if you hunt with a muzzle loader
5. I provide 3 feeders and keep them running
6. I provide the first 2,400 pounds of corn and keep feeders full
7. I provide two fiberglass deer stands, one on ground, one on tower, you may set up others
8. I provide the seed/fertilizer to plant 3 established food plots
9. I do all the work planting the food plots. Of course any help is appreciated.
10. Guest/family allowed but must hunt off your tags
11. There is a camping area
12. You may use a ATV/UTV on the property
13. Town with motel, restaurants, grocery store, 7 miles away

Total lease cost, $5,000 if two hunters, $6,000 if three.

I'm from Illinois, so my thoughts really aren't relavent. However, I'd pay that in a heartbeat. Beautiful property!

First, let me say, there are folks out there that would "buy in" to a turn key situation- just show up and hunt. And those type of "hunters" are willing to pay what you are asking. I don't understand the two tier pricing- set a price to lease and maybe limit it to no more than three and let whoever leases it determine if the want it for just themselves or have a buddy or two help with the cost. I will tell you that you aren't going to manage 100 acres in the sense of what large leases mean by manage. The property is too small- you can "manage" what you will allow the lessee to do but you won't be managing for big bucks. I have one lease that is 300 acres and I tell the guys that food plots are great to try to pull deer in from the surrounding area and at least slow them down as they are passing thru, but we aren't managing anything but the time we spend on the lease.

seems a bit on the steep side on price but a lot of smaller properties run higher per acre typically. With it being almost a turn key (only first 2400# of corn) might be very enticing for some hunters and a nice place to go year around and possibly shoot a few deer and/or hogs. Might also be very attractive for a family lease, like husband, wife & kids for weekend retreats in nature. I think it would lease at that price but I would be more concerned about the character of the hunters and the limits on what was to be harvested, most would probably be good, but 1 bad apple can spoil the whole deal.

Half the property is in a creek bottom. A factor would be if that area was huntable in very wet weather conditions.

10 of the 50 acres near the creek in very wet weather, "3 inches or more of rain." get 6" of water across it for 3-5 days. The remaining 40 acres are dry..... well
not dry, but no water standing on it. However, you can drive a utv anywhere on the property even when there is standing water.

I don’t see you having a problem leasing under that arrangement... I recommend keeping it at 2.

That's my thoughts, I just did not know if $2,500 was to high for a East Texas lease

I would stick with no more than 2 hunters. It is a little high, I feel you’d have better luck $500 less but lord knows somebody will pay what your asking. Especially with all that you are providing.


See y’all around the campfire..

I'd jump on it at $3,000-3500 for a single hunter, no guests or family, ever. Bow hunt only. Kill 1 -2 deer max. Plus help with any and all work feeding, planting, blind placement, etc.

Given you will be providing corn and maintaining food plots I don't think you will have any problems finding someone to lease at that price. As others have said, I'd keep it to 2 (since you mentioned guest and family are allowed off the hunters tags). If for nothing else to keep traffic on the property to a minimum.

Beautiful property you have and from the pics looks it appears whoever leases it will have a shot at some decent bucks. You may want to consider putting some age rules in place to ensure everyone involved understands it's not a shoot um up place. Being the property is 100 acres, you may also want to consider a bow/suppressed only rule. Only problem with that is your extended season would be out.

I agree with your thoughts....I do think it's a little high but the turn key portion, you providing a fair amount of corn and food plots I believe would make up for being a little high.

I would think someone from Texarkana would do that in a heartbeat. That would make a nice family lease. The corn's worth $500 plus the time saved not having to fill the feeders. The key's finding good stewards of your property.

You asked...

I think you can get it...from an idiot

For that price, there’s better options in my opinion and my opinion is worth what you paid

And if you can get 5-6k, I don’t blame you

Shooting a high powered rifle on 100 acres? Glad I'm not next door. I guess you could stack the blinds in the center back to back to keep from shooting each other. Now you could use a PCP Airgun or Airbow safely. bolt


They make ammo specifically for hunting for a reason! nidea

Nope. Too much money for that amount of land.

With that kind of quality deer, seems reasonable. Just be sure to back it up with pictures.

I’ve shot plenty of rifles on smaller land that that with no issues, but I understand why an Azle resident might have a hard time with it.
