Would you buy hunting rights; or 30 to 50 year lease

Would you buy hunting rights; or 30 to 50 year lease on large acre hunting

Over the past few years hunting leases have become in great demand and the expense of leasing land for hunting has sky rocketed. Although, I have not allowed hunting on my land in the past, nor do I hunt; I feel this is an economic stream I am not utilizing to it’s fullest.

Therefore, I am considering a long term lease of save 30 to 50 years, or what we should call a “hunting easement” to all my deeded land. This would of course be under the direction and authority of a written lease plan with the purchase paid up at one time and can be sold or traded with my approval of sale.

What I am wanting to know if there is enough interest , and the financial capability to purchase my hunting rights. This would be all game and all seasons. I have two units with a total of approximately 100,000 acres , The estimated average price per acre would come to around $7.00 per acre amortized over 30 years.

lease?

so what you are saying is you want 700,000 to lease 100,000 acres with payment broke up over 30 years? If so that would be more than a morgatge payment for the average hunter.most can get a lease for around 5000 a year give or take with the lease being "QDMA" with feeders and stands in place in most cases. you may want to rethink this a little or maybe do some research on hunting lease's.... the land size  sounds great just the price of the land for a small group would seem hard to cover. you would need a large group to make it affordable and as we all know the larger the group the harder it is to control.. just my thoughts  anthony in fl
