Leased land

Where can a guy find some land for lease for fall bowhunting close to West metro?

There are ads in the paper, outdoor news, etc, but the best ones and the ones you'll ahve the least competition for will be found on small paper tear off ads in the bait shops or found in the local gas stations etc. Personally you might find your best bet to be knocking on doors and just asking permission. There is still plenty of places to hunt that don't require a check.

Many farmers and landowners are catching on to the fact that many people from the metro offer money as the first option rather than just asking. I will say though that getting land to hunt in the west is difficult since many of the nearby towns are making more ordinances against it or limiting it.

Bowhunting is one of the easiest forms of hunting to get permission for, people are pretty willing to let you hunt, you just need to get out and knock on a few doors. In fact, I hate to even see hunters pay for leasing land, because then when Joe Farmer sees his neighbor getting paid by hunters, then he wants to get paid. Then it becomes a bidding war.

My thoughts exactly. Just put a little time in asking. My experience has been if you get permission, it is yours.

A lot of times you'll get permission for bowhunting, but during the firearms season they want it.

A little leg work will go a long way.
