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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
