You want control of grazing rights as well?

I would guess anywhere between $5 to $10 depending on grazing rights thrown in to control grass and brush.

It might be a good quail season. I saw 2 pairs of adult quail with about 25 bumblebee sized babies following them around last weekend.

For that 3,000 acre ranch your probably looking at around $40K. Depends on how much of the ranch is huntable and if anything else is provided other than the hunting. If you where in the mott country of deep south Texas, the lease would be more
