Default Unexpected lease opening.

I just had one of our guys drop off for this year. He had payed his deposit but us unable to stay on the lease. We are normally $3200(2400 lease, 600 protein, $200 Camp electricity.

I would take $2200 for the spot this year. The next year it would’ve the regular price. Your first year you can’t shoot over 8 points without approval.

Here’s some deer we have this year that are all getting a pass forb1-2 more years.












And some shooters










Here’s the link with more info.

Someone who does not already have a lease is going to have a really great chance for a wonderful lease...

What is the penalty for shooting a larger than 8pt deer without permission? I kid I kid.....looks like an awesome place! Best of luck finding a good member that can join you guys for the long term. I know it's a pain replacing members. Good luck bud

Got any pics of what a $2,200 deer looks like? Y'all got some great bucks on that place. Not sure what could really be expected the first year with that rule.

I read the original thread and I understand the first year rule. I may beg the wife to let me just pay now so I can hunt next season. Already have 3 leases so I've got an uphill battle

As a group we have decided to take the step of getting our trophies bucks to 6.5 so we really only have 3-4 that for the 6.5 year oldmark. So this year nobody is shooting above 8 without the group agreeing. The spot will come with the full 5 deer but the two bucks will need to be mgmt/cull deer.

So no member can shoot over an 8 without agreement this year or just the guy who joins this year?

Sounds like y'all are doing things right. Unfortunately my call to the boss (wife) flew like a lead balloon
I was willing to pay and not even go there this season just to get the spot. Having 3 other leases already made that a no for this season. Good luck. This should get filled quick.

So, a 1st year guy cannot shoot any of the bucks in the picture, correct? What does $2200 get a 1st year hunter? Does and culls? Any exotics or other hunting opportunities. Is it year round or just for the remainder of archery and rifle season?

You guys are looking at this wrong. It's a $2200 placeholder for an awesome place next year, while still killing good deer this year! If you want to shoot a trophy every year along with all other lease members , then management might not be your style.

heck I'm tempted, but my CFO says no.

Coach I would say this lease isn't for just anyone.

First the landowners hunt here and are involved in the hands on management of the place. This includes them filling protein feeders as part of the rotation.

Plenty of deer, a few pigs and a pretty nice camp. A large part of the group has been together for the last four seasons, some much longer, and they are there because it's a good place. But you can't always have everything. No turkey or duck hunting for example.

You'll have several deer at your feeder every time it throws. You'll see deer fights and see all kinds of deer activity.

The management works there but I don't think its realistic to think you'll have a dozen trophy bucks every season on a 2000 acre low fence operation.

However first year members will see a plethora of 8 point bucks. Many of them 4 years old and older. They could possibly kill a P&Y 8. But a 110 to 115 class 8 is probable.

That said right now with acorns on the ground it may be a little slow at feeders but in the next couple weeks the chase will be on and no telling what will wander through.

That said if you like a camp with like minded hunters, can pass up the biggest 10 point you've ever had in front of you because he's only 5yo and archery only is your thing, then you will probably enjoy this place.

Nailed it. The $2200 gets you 5 deer and a place fornext year. We want long term members. We haven’t increased our price in 8 years and have no plans to.

As mentioned in the original post we shoot one deer every year in the 145-155 range. 2-3 in the 125-140 range and a bunch of 110-120” mgmt deer.

It is year round and has tons of hogs. Very few exotics. Just built a big deck on the tank for a summertime pool.
