I think he is looking for more then just the standard permisssion slip.He is asking about a legal lease that spells out cost and expectations of the hunter and landowner (ie I paid you to hunt, you cannot allow anyone else on your property. Doing so is a violation of the contract and subject to potential lawsuits for failure to abide by the rules you established).

the problem w/ most leases, if you pay to hunt and get hurt, you can sue the owner for 'unsafe conditions'. whereas if you hunt free, you take some responsiblity for finding out any hazards on the property.
