This is the first time I ever had to do it to hunt. Growing up, anyone that wanted to hunt my grandpa's farm that drove up and asked could, as long as the family had gotten thier deer. He considered most game vermin, they ate his feed crops and chewed up the gardens.

Then I Was lucky enough to have friends that had parents/grandparents with farms in Hayward and Butternut, WI. Finally as an adult I had a friend that had some family land just outside of Crivitz, WI.

It is definately a struggle to find a place to hunt now and not being local doesn't help. I would assume it's easier to ask the nieghbor down the road that you've known for years to hunt that some stranger, even if he's offereing to pay.

I may have answered above, but I agree with you 100% it is the death nail of hunting. That and over zealous marketing/profiteering off the sport.

Wouldn't pay a nickel to hunt someone's property. I'll knock on every door around and find something before that. Heck, I'd even hunt public land more. If more and more folks stop paying ridiculous rates for leases they may become more affordable. But, hunting is turning into a wealthy mans sport. Thank goodness there are thousands of free acres for those who can't/don't lease land.

I wish it was that easy. It used to be, but like alot of things, theres no going back now.

I remember just walking down the road and asking a nieghbor of we could walk his hedgerows to hunt. They never cared, we'd normally give them 1/2 of what we killed after we cleaned it for letting us do it.

a friend and I lease a couple of small pieces of land. Call me selfish, but I can't stand knowing someone else is hunting where I am, especially if I do not know them. Might as well hunt public land if landowner lets anybody hunt. Some hunters get stupid when they see a deer. Stupid+rifle= an inevitable bad ending. If the landowner tells me I can hunt, but there also letting someone else hunt....I don't bother with it.

I would lease more in a heartbeat, but I don't hunt the properties much now since there in another state. We will also lease a good duck hole too.

There are too many variables a hunter has no control over that may impact his/her success. At least with a lease, thats one less variable taken out.

Leasing is the BEST thing that ever happened to Hunting. Many people like myself don't have family or family friends with woodland. When I first started Hunting, The only hunts I could go on where draw hunts, or what little public land I could find. I finally got permission to hunt a 66 acre farm after 10 years of Tag soup and, I finally got my first Deer. I killed a lot of deer there until the man that owns the right of way started trouble and I lost it. I found a lease before the next season and killed 6 Deer, Including a 10 pointer. With the internet and classifieds it's EASIER to assure yourself of a place to hunt than it is knocking Door to Door.

If you see some land around Lewisburg that is fairly cheap let me know. I have been looking for some to buy at a good price but I can't find any available at my idea of "good price". I have found it cheaper to lease so far.
