Gifts for farmers / landowners

Recommended Posts

So, I want to visit all the nice folks who let me hunt their property this spring. What is an appropriate gift? What do you guys give?

something you made is always nice... such as some smoked fish or jerky, wild rice, syrup, etc. whatever suits your style though or you think they'll like!

A gift certificate to a nice local restaraunt is a nice gesture!

A nice vaccuum pack of frozen walleye fillets, with a big can of baked beans, a couple of packs of simply potatoes hash browns and a box of breading like Gary Roach's or Jason Boeser's. Put it in a gift bag and give 'em a good lo' MN shorelunch! Works out in the Dakota's for pheasant land like a charm!

Good Luck!

All I expect from others who I let on the land to hunt is that they follow the rules and are not a problem. I have people give me items as a thanks and thats great as long as the gift is not so large that I feel they are trying to buy their way onto the land.

I have had guys that have tried to give me items like deer stand and cameras. I have refused these items as I felt that they figured I could not say no the following year.

Just be honest and true and that will get you a long ways.

Thats just me.

That is very nice HL. I went out to the land that I mention, by Plato and walked right down the railroad track the split of the two woods and to the river where the farmers land ends. The only entrance is up by his house so I will have some hauling to do if i go out and hunt that area.

I read a bit one time about a guy who would give various farm related items like lynch pins and such. Problem with gift certificates is the location of the place - Applebees may be 75 miles away. Some friends used to bring fresh produce to the land owner way out in Western ND as they had trouble finding fresh produce in their area.

Great ideas guys, I think the walleye shore lunch should be a big hit.

I really believe that if anyone who hunts on anothers land just follows the rukles and leaves the land as they found it or in better shape is enough. It is for ma at least.

It is nice to offer something but I really believe just not being a pain is a gift in itself.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
