I know several land owners who are getting between $50-$80 an acre to hunt in Pike and Adams Co IL. Very expensive, but the oppurtunity to kill a booner is as good as anywhere else in the country.

6k acres for 50 people at 750.00 per member. I'll let you do the math.

thanks for your responses. i agree that leases are expensive and public land is tough. I have access to private acreage as well as the club, and now I really see how important the relationships with my landowners can be. thanks...keep the info coming.

Around $20 per acre seems to be common in southeast Illinois, but I think that will double in the next decade. Unless you are up to your neck in nearby public land, the only way to go in the long run is owning land. And by owning land I mean YOUR name on the deed.

Won't lease, never have, never will. Leasing only breeds more leasing and will kill hunting for the common man, don't encourage it. [:'(]

I use creative approaches tofind land to hunt on, and I get plenty of offers of free hunting. If you can access a topo mapping site you can find plenty of free places to hunt in most areas, pay particular attention to the smaller less known public parcels, odds are you'll have them all to yourself. Make sure to obtain the GPS coordinates and carry a printout of the parcel displaying them in case an irate landowner of an adjoining property thinks you're trespassing n his land, you'll love the look on their face when the game warden tells them they just got a ticket for interfering in your hunt.

Leases in most of north LA. go for around $4 to $6 an acre. The closer you get to the delta region ( Miss. River) the price goes way up, that is if you can find a place. Many clubs in this area require you to purchase part of the property. If you want to hunt the best places in LA., it will cost you $200 to $300 thousand.[&:]You will now be part owner of a deer, duck, and turkey paradise. I'll stick with my 100 acres that I own and the 113 acres I lease from a cousin. BTW, I give my cousin, who lives in Colorado and doesn't hunt, $500 a year to lease her land. What makes it better, is that her land joins mine. I'm in the process of trying to talk her down to $400, but don't know if it's going to work. There are lots of deer on both of our properties, so I'll pay what she asks.
