As Cajun said, if the club is in his name he can just about do as he pleases. If it is a true club, he should be able to be voted out.
I have been on clubs like this before. If it were a very large club, and he spent a lot of time running it, I would not have that much of a problem with him not paying dues. However, on a 4 person club you are paying 1/3 more than you should be so that he can hunt for free, when the only " work" he is doing is collecting money from only 3 other people!
It seems to me you have 3 possible choices. Look into voting him out, look for another place to hunt, or pay up! Unless this place is super great, or is a lot cheaper than the surrounding leases, you could be hunting for a third less than you are paying now! Good luck!

I have heard this is a pretty common practice. On our lease the camp boss pays the same as all the members, but I don' t thing this is usually the case. In many cases the camp boss will pay less or nothing at all as a way of being compensated for his extra duties. I am not sure how I feel about this; I' m glad its not that way on my lease.

I have a friend that pays $800 a year for a little over a thousand acres, has a house, own barn, tractor, the whole nine yards.. well there are 10 members to the club.. 7 out of 10 pay.. for some unknown reason the president, his son, and his sons " bestfriend" get to hunt for free (and the son and the bestfriend) were convicted of spotlighting!!![:@].. i was going to join this club last season but i just happened to ask if the president payed.. im sure glad i did..

I think that everyone should pay equally in this situation. As stated it is only 4 people and not much effort to keep it running. I like the idea of alternating and see what he says

You said that he didn' t pay the last 3 years?

Propose that he catch up by paying the other three dues this year and you and the other two guys can split his part $0.00 three ways.

Was there any kind of an agreement between the four of you when this all started? As to who would do what, and who would pay what??

C. Davis, I really like your idea There was no agreement when this all started. What happened was 3 years ago we lost one tract of land. Until that time it was $1000 for the entire lease which came up to $250 per member. Since we lost one of the tracts it is now only $750 but the members are still paying $250 each. All this kind of went over my head and I never even thought about it until the president slipped and let the cat out of the bag. During this conversation I could tell he knew he said too much but I acted as though I didn' t catch so I would have time to think this over. This is by far the best hunting land I' ve ever been on so I' d really hate to lose it over a disagreement like this but at the same time I feel like I' ve been taken advantage of. I still haven' t decided how to handle this so nothing has been said yet. I' m hoping to find another lease and get out all together but around here hunting land is hard to come by.
