In response to a listing in the classifieds here, asking nearly $9000 for a 6 month lease on 300+ acres for hunting, I guess I am somewhat floored about anyone spending that much money to be able to hunt ? How many people need to be involved and how many deer do you need to take on the property in a year in order to justify that kind of expense ? There are farming activities mentioned (crops) so it is not as if it is a piece of wilderness that you have exclusive access to.. Just curious. I see many listings here in Michigan for between $1500 and $2500 for just deer season (Sept to January) on private land. I pay my way by killing coyotes and providing labor for projects on the farm. I also donate part of my meat to the family who owns the farm, but other than gas I have no cash in it at all.
