A hunting lease
can be challenging to find. As
more and more land is being developed, less property is available
for lease. Everyone wants to find property that holds
big game. If you want to secure a hunting lease, you
will need to determine what your budget is. Next, you will
need to determine how many people you want in your lease. How
many people you have should determine the acreage needed. You
do not want to lease 25 acres and have 5 people hunting the land.
You could have that many people on the hunting lease but you would
have to allocate the times that people hunt the land. Remember
that the more people that hunt the land, the game being targeted will tend to be
more wary and suspicious of human activity.
Finally, call around and find what landowners are charging.
Ask them if you can come out and walk the land. You can often
tell a lot about the land by taking a walk through the property.
Also, spend time at dawn an dusk driving around the area when deer
are most likely to be traveling. All of the above factors should be
considering when evaluating a hunting lease
