Default Landowner sold my lease property

Got the call last week that the landowner sold half her property, the half that I and another hunter were leasing. She suggested the we relocate to the other half of the property, that has 4 hunters on it already. So instead of 6 hunters on 600 acres, she wants 6 hunters on 300 acres, at the same price.

So I'm looking for a new lease, I could probably bring 3 more hunters along with myself, or a space for myself on an existing lease. Preferably somewhere west of Weatherford towards Abilene, Brownwood, Breckenridge area.

Would like electric hookups, and my wife likes to come along, but not hunt.
I'm 59 been hunting for 45 years. Bow and Gun is preferred.

Thanks!!

I feel your pain brother but I am a little confused by your statement "bow and gun is preferred". What else is there?

As compared to a bow only or gun only lease I would think.

Don't apologize man. It's getting ridiculous on here lately. There are a handful of folks that need to get a piece or something. Way too uptight and argumentative.

Had similar happen to me a few years ago. She sold the whole property. It sucked, but we didn't have any type of formal contract. Good luck finding a new place to hunt.

Do leases not “run with the land” unless there is language in the lease that causes it to terminate if the property is sold?

If you buy a piece of land are you going to feel obligated to honor a lease you didn’t agree to? Likely not. I think most of us wouldn’t. I’m sure most landowners stipulate that in the contract but it doesn’t sound like most places have a formal one in place anyway.

Was this in Mason/Menard Counties on the San Saba river? If so, I know exactly who you are talking about.

I know it may be unlikely but could you see if a new lease could be agreed on with the new owner?

Sorry to hear, sir.
The other part that would disturb me was that she suggested you move to the remaining 300 acres ... more hunters on half as much land, but the same price!

Again, I am sorry if I offended any landowners by the title of my post. I am just looking for a new lease. I know she can do what ever she want with her property. And no this was not on the San Saba, it was in Callahan county.

The next thread started on here will probably be someone who just bought there own place because they were tired of leasing.

Good luck to ya DJ, on finding a new lease . Maybe some of these not so nice folk will refrain from posting they're negative thoughts on your thread.







I'm leaseless too. But have chosen to be so. Because I've got over 300,000 acres of public land here in Texas to access. It's a different type of hunting.

And 2 years before that.

Update, the Original lease was through the end of spring turkey season. Three weeks ago, we were told we need to clear off the property by the end of March. To day we get a call that they are closing on Friday, you need to move your stuff by Friday.

I would send a letter asking for prorated refund for the missed turkey season.

Only way to get around stuff like this is to buy your own place

Leased land sells, somebody comes in and offers more money, landowners suddenly get squirrelly etc, etc

Good luck in the search for a replacement

I think you got a crappy deal on the changed closing date BTW
