Gifts for farmers / landowners

11 posts in this topic

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.

    • Depends on what your education and interest is.   No jobs in my field in GR for sure.   That's why I worked with a bunch of Range guys here in Rochester.   Get a EE degree, and you won't be finding much up there.   On the other hand, after some experience, there are jobs where you work from home so it doesn't matter where you live, programming and even some engineering jobs.       But they require good internet.  Things are better that way up north but not everywhere.
    • well factor in cost of living and its a wash
    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck. 
    • Ayup. They asked me to take his place, but I can't stand Rawlings.    http://www.gasmonkeygarage.com/yes-aaron-the-bearded-wonder-is-leaving-gas-monkey-garage/
    • That does look like a fun day!
