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.

    •     The assumption here being that since he didn't know, nobody knew.    Because obviously, nobody is smarter than him.
    •   Thanks for the reply. I was looking at the IQ pro hunter. It is a three pin, two fixed and one that is adjustable. The other would be the 5 pin micro.   i have thought about an HHA single pin but the sight makes me nervous to have in the rut. if ever I need to take a quick shot in an area I didn't expect a deer to come from
    •     Or possibly just one, since the two parties are getting more alike all the time.   Probably not a constitutional convention in the normal sense, but as we turn more and more into a police state, there is a definite possibility of a military coup.  There was a survey done in 2015, and 43 percent of Republicans surveyed said they could envision a military coup in the U.S.   http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/09/10/Military-Coup-US-Surprising-Number-Americans-Might-Support-One     Republicans (43 percent) were more likely to say they can envision a scenario in which they could support a military coup than Democrats (20 percent). Perhaps that difference is related to having a Democratic president who some critics on the right see as overstepping his power.     (What's laughable is those same critics have no problem at all with a Republican president overstepping his power.)
    • Don't have to worry, there won't be a constitutional convention.    And we will have two parties or what passes for parties for a long time.
    • This Health biatchin reminds me of a dog that keeps barking and chasing a car down a street daily--then one day the car stops and the dog doesn't know what to do so it just pizza on one tire or walks away.
    • Juneau4 and Swiveldigger  each picked up a win- 200 whoopin pts. (That has to be an all time low for winning) and they didn't have the same drivers.   We had a couple contestants that had 0 pts and that may be because they just didn't get entered in time, so I'm thinking I can put it in where you can have a Mulligan for each segment. (Your low score for 1 week is thrown out each segment-Spring, summer, and playoff.  I'll try to have a winner each segment and a overall champion.   What do you guys think? I'm just thinking if more wish to join now it would possibly make it more interesting through out the year.
