Re: What is the most you have heard of paid for a hunting lease ?
I have seen $3500 leases in S. Texas.
Alot of times too, what a person is willing to pay is the combination of alot of factors. My boys and I went from a lease in East Texas of 150 acres for $175 a year, to 600 for $1k a year in Central Texas.
Why am I willing to pay more? Several reasons.
1. Deer population. I can see more deer in one day in Central Texas than I will all season in E Tx.
2. Drive time. E Tx lease = 4 hours. Central Tx lease = 30 minutes. This means the money I spent in gas now goes towards my lease. Is it a wash, hell no we just hunted 30 days last deer season alone. But it sure is more fun!
Additonally, my boys are getting older and it is harder and harder to get them to spend a week with me and out of touch with the girlys.
When I was younger I always said I will NEVER pay $X just to hunt. Never say Never.
