Hunting Lease

4 posts in this topic

I see alot of talk on here of hunting leases. What type of leases are there in MN? I would love to get in on one of these or even get my own. Is there public land that can be leased, or is it a matter of talking to land owners and working something out?

What they're mainly talking about is leases on private land. Potlach use to run leases, but I don't think they do that anymore. They seem to be selling off their old leased property. You can sometimes find adds for leaseable land in magazines, outdoor news, and web listings, sometimes you see them here in MN fishing(I think). good luck

I have a county lease through St. Louis County for just a hunting shack. We pay the taxes on the piece of property 80 acres. But only have rights to right where our shack is. It is on a year to year basis.

Potlatch is very much still in the land lease business. The property that they sell off is most often a piece that has produced marginal amounts of timber due to the piece being low enough that it holds water, or has very steep rock cliffs or other situations that don't make for the best use for them, sometimes it just a piece of land they own that is surrounded by private land. We have a 160 acre lease in NE Minnestota and they are still offering land for lease in our area. Our group pays a little over $1100 a year for 160 acres. The size and cost for each lease if different. I would check out the Potlatch HSOforum.

I have herad that St. Louis County does not lease out any new pieces of land, but existing leases are still honored, but I have not checked into this.

    • which models of striker bibs/ coat?
    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
