I haven't done one before and I'm out looking for land to hunt for next season. I now have to drive several hours to get to the land I have permission to hunt. I am hoping to find some land much closer (less than an hour away) and I might run into a lease situation. I was wondering if you have done a lease and if you have any pointers or comments about them. How much do lay out for the lease? Thanks!

Thanks Woodhick!

One hour drive isn't a problem but two hours or more gets to be especially tough for an early morning turkey hunt. Woodhick if you don't mind me asking roughly what does the lease run you guys, ball park, so I can guessimate my going price here. I had some else tell me they paid for Penn. State lease on a farm that was 68 acres anout $500 for the year, just share what I've learned so far.

Rowdy we pay the property tax for the landowner in exchange for the use of the land. Our lease runs July 1st thru June 30th each year. The property is in the state's "Clean & Green" program so no permanent structure can be built. Our lease is deemed woodlands so the taxes are less than tillable property...ie...farmland. God Willing we'll have Casters Camp a long time.......if we'd lose it, then we can relocate to the farm near Erie but that's a 3 1/2 hr drive in good weather. I'd rather not post what we pay as a camp but the individual membership runs $180 per year....not bad for 600 acres of hunting ground.

Thanks a ton Phil -- really that's very helpful for me, thanks. I have a better preparation in what to expect in my search close by here. I'm sure the property closer to Columbus is going for a high lease than those farther out.

Yrs ago in GA hunting leases was 4.00 an acre, probably 40.00 an acre now. Good luck getting a close place. Saves gas.

Hello all-it's been awhile since I've been on H.R. :ermm:
I'm 2 states south of you-we pay $8/up an acre here...once in a while you'll find a real deal though.

$10 to $12/acre here. If I had to lease here I probably couldn't hunt anywhere else.
