That's no longer "leasing" in my book. They're operating as an outfitter. Expect that loophole to get closed quickly.

This season there seems to be a new trend. Many properties have done away with the season long leases and are doing weekly leases. Peak weeks are still bringing in $10-15 an acre. That's $1,500 for a 100 acre property. And they seem to be going QUICKLY. I won't say they sell out for the year... I don't know that. But I know peak archery dates, gun week and muzzleloader week all fill up quickly.

I certainly don't blame the landowners for making money. But I'm also saddened by what it seems that hunting is becoming.

Anybody else seeing the weekly lease thing popping up more often in their area?

Really it's your sad story. Thank you so much for sharing and this will be an experience for whitetail!

Thanks so much!
