Asking what people are paying is going to be all over the map. Too many factors to figure in and one thing about it, if there is a lease opening it will usually always get filled no matter the price.

Was paying $10/acre.

I executed the handshake lease on two places near home several years ago. Very fortunate to have both of these places this year, and with no lease payment my play money went way up! Well, its not play money anymore lol.

I think of my lease costs as multiple mini vacations throughout the year. Is it expensive? Yes. But when it’s split between 6-8 “mini vacations it’s cheap. BTW, my lease is 3000 acres, year round access, with guest privileges.

I once paid 6500.00 for a nice lease but after family members of the owner started hunting the rut in my blinds I decided to leave, this was in 2013 today the owner has raised the price to 8500.00 its unbelievable how expensive hunting has become. I completely understand if u leasing a HF place and great deer are on the ranch I know it takes lots to money to maintain great genetics but on a low fence ranch its pricey. I found 2 LF leases this year and both were over 9000.00 a gun I was in shock lol.

A friend and I both had 5k each and right now we **** in front of the TV to watch the hunting channel

I'd like to know how owning land translates into making lots of money.

I think some people are confused. Just because someone is rich and buys land and still has money to blow on 70k trucks doesn't mean the ranch is making them all that money.

Default Hunting lease what do you pay yearly.

Live on 50 acres, sweat equity to gain access to the neighbors 87 acres (436 acres before he sold part of it) and a handshake for 180 more acres next county over with access to their neighbors 400 acres for pigs.
So i pretty much pay fuel and corn and thats it. I also give some meat to the land owners

No doubt hunting and leases are super expensive. I'm embarrassed to say how much I pay, so I won't. But, leases are like trucks to me, we all keep paying the prices and it's supply and demand. If we got off our lease this year there would be a line of folks waiting with check book in hand. And as far as going on a couple hunts per year....that's great, but I want to go down several times a year to the lease. We go at least 10-12x per year. Everything is a choice, but we often say "I can't believe we are paying ***xx to hunt!"

$4.50/acre if I don’t shoot a buck
$9/acre if I do. Hence most of us hesitate to pull the trigger.

I hesitate to post this at all....but 10k total for two different leases

The third place we hunt we own, and it costs about 40k a year.

Leasing seems cheap until you buy a place.

Yep. This is spot on. IMO you canít really blame the LO for taking what the market will bear for lease dues.

I would say $15.00 per acre for what your asking about. That's a good average. We are paying close to 20$ per acre but that includes feed, which is a lot.
