Hunting Lease

Recommended Posts

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.

    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
    • Try going over to this thread. Rock & Edibles-Agates-Fossils-Artifacts-Mushrooms-Ginseng-Gems-etc. There is some discussion taking place under Morels' 2018 already.
    • Guys and Gals, I have searched high and low and have found none at all this spring.  Anyone have an success.  I am guessing it is too dry.  Will they still pop?  Any advise? "Set the Hook", Flash  
    • Wow, my spots are way behind this year. Had hoped to find a bunch before this coming long weekend for a big family Walleye and Morel fry but have only found 5 small grays so far. Just not seeing the ground cover growing very much yet and have saw no other types of mushrooms which seem to grow first pop up yet. This is a very late year so far.
    • No, shes not but on a paper thin rotted floor your kitty would fall through. I can see why she worried.  I didn't because it wasn't on my side!!
