I have been managing a South Texas high fence place for my wife’s family for 15 years. 370 acres of some great trophies. Way more big bucks have died of old age than have been put on the wall but now the owner (F.I.L.) is being sent to long term care. I may be tasked with selling hunts to pay for his expenses. There are several bucks over 160” up to probably and past 180”. My question is how to go about charging and selling them. Weekend hunts? Season lease to a group? It’s all protein fed (double down) and well cared for. I’ve never had the need to buy a hunt so I’m not too familiar with the going rates. there are trophies of a hunters lifetime on this property. All native Texas deer BTW. Any constructive advise would be greatly appreciated.

The easiest thing to do would be to do an annual lease to a group rather than day hunt it. First, if you day hunt it you will have to be available for every new person/group that comes in to explain the rules, boundaries, etc. Also, by day leasing it you have a greater chance of depleting the trophy buck numbers. Leasing to a group you can set the annual bag limits of trophys, culls, does, etc. You can also pass on the burden/cost of the feeding program to the group by having them required to provide. Just a thought.

Annual lease to one group. Just my 2 cents. Maybe won’t make as much, but a lot less time-consuming.

There were a few guys I knew in Freer that had a nice high fenced ranch and fed year round. The owner would then lease out to a Corp or group lease for $120K but he guaranteed X number of trophies, X number of does. Might give an idea of what to do. Hope it works out for ya.


MAGA!
