Default Lease land?

Do you lease land to hunt? If so how much per acre do you pay?

We lease around 400 acres at $8.00/acre. Have a great landowner so we're happy with that, but in the same county we've seen leases as high as $25.00/acre. To us that is just crazy. It's not like NC is known for 150-200" bucks.

In addition we have around 300 more acres that we have permission to hunt at no cost.

and the numbers in west central illinois are even higher. IF you can even find a place an outfitter hasn't grabbed. those numbers are the very reason I bought my place in southern illinois.

Its hard to lease land in Pa. We leased land that was gonna get developed for one year. We paid $500 for around 60 acres. As soon as you lease something it causes an uproar in our area. Everybody in my area expects everything to be free. I dont have a problem with people leasing land. It sucks to lose hunting ground but at the same time it helps eliminate trespassers. And it usually makes for better hunting in the area. JMO.....

You can hunt on any land in NH that is not posted. It is common courtesy to ask permission. And there is not much land over 10 acres that is posted due to the tax liability. You get better tax breaks if you have your land open for recreation/hunting. The only bad part of this is that once a good area is found the word gets out and the next thing you know the hunting pressure increases.

what area are you in NC. I use to go down that way a few times a year to visit friends. I use to look around at some of the land in wilkes and surry counties for hunting and to fish.
