I never thought it would so difficult to give someone money for a place to hunt. Been looking like many other hunters but have been unsuccessful so I’ll post here in hopes someone knows of something.

Looking for a spot on a lease that will allow my kiddos (maybe wife is she decided to join me) to sit in the blind with me. They don’t hunt but love eating the game. Maybe one day they’ll hunt but as of today they’re not interested in killing just eating.

I’m looking for something within 2-3 hours of San Antonio. Would prefer west or north but would consider all directions as I know everyone seems to looking in the hill country and west of SA at the moment.

Don’t really need water or electric but it would be nice and I have a travel trailer so no lodging is needed.

I’d like to spend around $3000 but would entertain higher price for the right place. I have feeders, blind, and feed year round to include protein.

Thanks!

It's difficult to find a good lease. One with decent game populations, camp accommodations and affordable. Often that means driving further than you like. There are places that will take your money and leave you disappointed. I've had several deerless leaaes over the years.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

I’d love to drive further but family situation doesn’t allow it at the moment. I’m flexible on price though so if someone has something that may be higher I’d entertain it. Figured $3000 is about average I know some places are more though.

Seems most of the places I’ve been contacted about lately want a deposit without contract to review or seeing the place. I’m not comfortable with that.

Still hopeful I’ll come across something.

Fltmedic, from my experience someone asking for a deposit without seeing the place or any contract to review would be very unusual and would be a red flag.


Keep your gratitude higher than your expectations. RWH

I wouldn’t be comfortable sending deposit sight unseen either.

My thoughts as well, if you can’t produce a contract for me to review and at a minimum provide pics to peak my interest than more than likely you have nothing to lease. To me at least, I’m not sending money for a deposit sight unseen.

I normally come across leases up here all the time with as many land owners as I come in contact with but this year I haven't found one In Texas yet. Wet weird year,, I did find a couple small places in Oklahoma but those normally don’t start poping up until around the end of June when leases expire or more times than not idiots are kicked off.

It’s def hard to find a place. Especially a good one, and as for the putting a deposit or leasing sight unseen you will be surprised how many people are crazy enough to do that but it’s a lot more than one would think
