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.
