If you lease, how long have you been on it?
 
and how did you find it?

flywise 11-21-2017 12:33 PM

28 years/ college buddy

SwineAssassiN 11-21-2017 12:33 PM

5 years, found it through an old friend

TXHunter1089 11-21-2017 12:34 PM

Word of mouth. First year on it but looking promising to sign a longer contract after the season!

kruppa24 11-21-2017 12:35 PM

First year, best friend from high school found it

twobittxn 11-21-2017 12:37 PM

Starting my 4th season. Found it on here.

CRM_95 11-21-2017 12:45 PM

All my life and I'm 39. Spent the first night there when I was 6 months old. My Dad leased it before I was born. I killed my first deer there, my son and wife both killed their first deer there. The hunting isn't great sometimes, and I often think about another place...but 40 years of memories is hard to let go of.

Man, that's what it's about. I have to remind myself of that at times.

fbchunter 11-21-2017 12:48 PM

Probably about 20 years. Grandpa was on it and ran it for a while. Got me on when I was probably 12 and am now 32. As the landowner ages I know our days are numbered. Hoping it lasts at least a few more years so my boy can kill his first deer there in the next year or two

slicktricker 11-21-2017 12:52 PM

1st yr and found it here

TX_Hoghunter 11-21-2017 12:59 PM

I have been on 3 lease. First for 12 years, second for 5 years ( place sold ), and now 6 years. Will stay there until either I or land owner dies I guess. All 3 were word of mouth.

breederbuck33 11-21-2017 01:01 PM

17 years. My dad found it through a work friend.

DesertDug 11-21-2017 01:02 PM

2nd year. Friend.

lab man 11-21-2017 01:02 PM

My dad and I have been leasing the same property for 20 years. 18 years on the original ranch. Two years ago the ranch was divided and sold. We worked out a deal with one of the new owners but had to move all of our stuff since we were hunting on the other section and that owner didn’t want to lease.

Found through a high school friend that was already on the lease.

Grndchecker 11-21-2017 01:05 PM

22 years. Friend of my dad was on it and asked if I wanted on.

jerp 11-21-2017 01:15 PM

I envy you guys that have been on the same place for decades. If I recall correctly I have been on 6 different leases over about 30 years, so an average of 5 years between moves. Sometimes the move was due to a lease group falling apart, sometimes the land owner sold, several just sucked as a hunting property.

44mAG 11-21-2017 01:20 PM

Went 15 years not on a lease only family land, but have been on a hill country lease for two years now. Don't kill or see the biggest deer but it sure is fun seeing 15-25 deer every sit. Found it on here.

AgHntr10 11-21-2017 01:20 PM

Upwards of 45 years, nobody can remember back that far!

hogslayer78 11-21-2017 01:22 PM

WCB 11-21-2017 01:23 PM

1st year on this lease. Was next door for 10 years before. Froggy got me on both and cousins own the 2 places individually.

88 Bound 11-21-2017 01:24 PM

5 years, found through a cousin.

krisw 11-21-2017 01:28 PM

The first one I was on, we leased for probably close to 20 years. My dad found it through his work. We stayed on it through a couple of ownership changes. Last time it was sold, the owner decided after a couple of years he didn't want to lease it.

Moved on to the current place. Been there around 10 or 11 years. My dad knows the owner.

deerplanter 11-21-2017 01:32 PM

2 Leases
East Texas 4 years and found it online I think
Hill Country first year and found it on this sight

BigCohiba 11-21-2017 01:55 PM

That's funny exact same here...probably different chamber of commerce though!

Slick8 11-21-2017 02:07 PM

Just started this year leasing another 10,000 acre ranch. Hoping it turns into a long term deal.

CisternHunter 11-21-2017 02:59 PM

My family has been on our lease for 52 years. I've spent all 25 years of my life on it. No idea how they found it, pretty long ago

Christianhuff 11-21-2017 03:10 PM

Never paid for a lease, but have a couple of farms in Kansas, Oklahoma, and Collin County. I have been hunting most of my ground for 7-10 yrs...However my farmers are just like my woman, I don't have to pay them, but do shower then with some nice gifts![emoji1303]

50 plus years. My grandfather got the lease in the 60's. My father got on in 72 and I got on in the 90's. We are dealing with the third generation landowners.

xtimbers 11-21-2017 06:18 PM

38 years, Dad and his friends found it when I was in military. Just wife and I on it now, everyone else has passed on. Land owners have changed from Father to son but never gone up in price, He works me pretty good sometimes.
