Leasing hunting land

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone lease hunting land from a private land owner or farmer? I know that some may lease from Potlatch but it seems that they don't have many parcels available anymore.

If you do lease land, how much do you pay a year and how did you come across someone willing to lease their land? Did you answer an ad or just knock on doors?

I am pretty sure I have seen ads for leasing land in Outdoor news. Check there. I have never looked personally, but you may have some luck on a craig's list search too? Maybe a simple internet (google, yahoo) search too

I've leased land by simply putting an ad in a local newspaper, in the area you are looking to hunt. The land I've leased has been cheap, under 500 bucks for deer,turkey, grouse the entire season on 200 acres of decent ground. I think that's cheap because it doesn't even cover property taxes. Establish a good relationship with a landowner and you can lock up pretty good hunting without forking out a bunch to own. The first property I leased was a 40, for 50 bucks, can't beat that either, I just wanted a little more land. Good luck.

Where are you looking to lease land? Closer to the metro is going to be more expensive, southeast is all going to be expensive also. I hunt in west-central MN, there are a lot of people who "let" people hunt there land that are surprised hunters are willing to pay them just to hunt the property. Local newspapers are the best bet, many older people, the ones that own land, do not use the internet but get the local paper every week.

    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work.
