Hi all,

I was hoping it wouldn't come to this, but here we go. I decided to hand off my lease in the spring. It was a nice spot, but it wasn't 'family friendly'. Due to bad experiences with previous lessees (prior to me being on the lease), the landowner put a hard stop to overnight camping and didn't allow any visitors under the age of 18. Now that my kids are getting to the ages where they can enjoy outdoor activities, this became an issue for me.

I knew the risk when I decided to hand off the lease, but I also knew it wasn't a good fit for me. I've followed several leads, but nothing has come to fruition. Here is my budget and requirements:

- Budget: around $2k per year.
- Year-round access.
- Within 2-2.5 hours of Denton County (I'm in Aubrey).
- Overnight camping and family allowed (family would be hunting off my tags if they hunted at all).
- I'm good with bow or rifle hunting.
- Turkey and/or ducks would be a huge plus.

I'm working with a teacher salary, so my budget is pretty strict. My priorities are finding a place to spend time with my family in the outdoors, fill the freezer, and possibly have a shot a mature buck. While I'm happy with any management plan in place, monster bucks are not my priority. Also happy to help with any lease maintenance that might be needed.

I know finding something that meets these criteria, especially so late in the year, is a nearly impossible task right now. Let me know if you have any leads.

If not, here's hoping the drawn hunts pan out. Thanks everybody!

Good Luck! I hope you find something. Leases for the average worker are getting harder and harder to find.

Good family friendly leases are hard to come by.
Even though I don’t kill much anymore, that’s for the grandkids, I am blessed to have my own properties for them to hunt.
I’m out of the lease game and glad of it, it’s always some kind of bs and sooner or later you will lose it if it’s a good one.
