I am going to post this in the deer section - seems like not many people look at the lease section...
I am starting a small 4 member club in SC for 2011... we will have 270 acres.
All members will share equally in the club - no special or "private" areas.
The first three members dues will cover the lease fees (we have three members now - looking for a fourth) - the fourth member's dues will be used for food plot money and "other" expenses - which is the reason for this post.
I am personally providing all of the stands (about 15 of them - all metal) and am also providing the tractor and all implements for the club.
We have agreed that the club will pay for tractor fuel, seed and fertilizer.
What other costs do you feel would be appropriate for the club dues to cover?
Here are some questionable items:
2 trail cameras
power pole and related breakers, etc... at camp area (I am the only camper, as of right now)
cost of pin in board and maps
deer cleaning station with winch
supplemental winter feeding
I know that one line of response will be that these issues should be discussed when the rules and guidelines are set up - and most of the rules have already been discussed and agreed upon... I am just trying to decide what I should and should not ask my members to contribute to...
I am thinking that I will cover the power pole initially and if we gain some campers... I willl ask them to share in the power pole....
Thoughts and recommendations?
