What is deer lease worth by LOW


UGUIDE

Recommended Posts

I was just curious if any of you would know what a deer hunting lease would go for on 160 acres of wooded land just south of Arnesons area (Rocky Point - Roosevelt)? My wife owns 160 acres there and we have no idea what a lease if worth. I'm thinking at least the taxes on it. The lease would include all hunting rights (grouse, bow, gun)

Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Lease for taxes seems to be quite common up here. Do you already have someone to lease?

I believe it is leased for 2010 but the guys in there are not paying her Dad enough to make taxes and so we might take over leasing it out and would start 2011 but no I do not have anyone. If interested please PM me.

Thanks for the responses guys.

We pay roughly $1,000 for 80 acres near Walker, it basically covers Potlatchs' taxes.

Other thing to consider is what rights they may have to the land, as far as putting up stands (also type, perm, ladders, hangers), making food pots, clearing/maintaining trails etc. The more you allow the lesee to do, the more attractive it would be to lease.....

That seems pretty steep @ $12.50 an acre for only hunting rights. Is that the going rate in Minnesota? I could have sworn that I had seen average rates were half of that for states like Kansas, Iowa, etc.

that is true but for the most part those are very large tracts of land. There is economy to scale.

Yeah, I assumed (and took into consideration) some economy of scale on a smaller parcel, but $12.50 an acre still seemed higher than I would have expected based on my assumptions and limited knowledge/experience with lease prices.

A lot also depends on the type of land it is not just the size. A wooded 40 with game and in the "right spot" may be more $$$ than a 160 acre hayfield. So take that into consideration as well as what is allowed - trails, stands, food plots, etc. I would think you could get enough to at least cover taxes and then maybe more depending on what it offers.

Well we just put the lease together and I thought I would update this thread. It will include 600 acres of total land which is 280 wooded and balance in crop land. Rate is $10/acre + insurance or you could look at it as $4.60 acre for total. Some permanent stands are on the property and the lease is private and exclusive for all hunting rights included.

I should also mention that we would be willing to lease just 160 wooded acres.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
