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.

    • got time to check it out (finally). All it was was the positive side of the battery has 2 cables that run to it. I found the computer one was closest to battery and the starter one was on the outside. This had to be turned to starter cable first and the computer cable second ????.  Alls well after that. I also had to get a longer bolt in it to make a better connection..
    • I'm in, in zone 13
    • Tough game for the Preds.  Seemed like Rinne really let the team down last night.  The was a "Wild" like performance, shut the other team down and let in a couple softies and let the game slip away.  
    • congrats to your dad Borch!

    • Nice work Borch for you and your dad. Congrats . I have been seeing a lot of strutters of the weekend . Those 20 gauges are awesome sure put a hurting on .
    • Another fantastic week of fishing up in the Northwest Angle!

      Two weeks into the Minnesota season an abundance of saugers are congregating around Little Oak, as well as other small islands near Crow Duck, making for an easy shore lunch spot while staying close to home. Jigging at 18-24 has produced the most fish but it isn’t too early to be pulling spinners.
       
      On the Canadian side, walleyes are more dispersed but very plentiful on main lake points with current anywhere from 15-20 ft. of water, holes remain consistent.  Almost any method is producing fish, gold/yellow/orange jigs with a minnow seems to be the most popular.  The northern pike bite remains strong with many thirty plus fish being seen. 

      We hope to see you soon!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
