Was talking to a guy today that I see regularly on job sites. We always have good conversation and help each other out quite a bit. We got to talking deer hunting and I mentioned that I am interested in finding another place to lease for hunting. He paused for a second and said "you can hunt my place if you want I don't hunt anymore" I told him I am highly interested in hunting it but I don't want to hunt for free. (It's 160 acres) I would actually prefer to pay him but don't want to offend him with a small offer but also don't want to over pay either. He insist he doesn't want anything. He said just as long as I don't have people all over my land it's ok. I told him it would only be me and one other person. (My hunting buddy)
Where should I go from here? I don't want to hunt for free and feel like I'm over stepping my welcome when I go out there.

You have time to go look around before the season is over. Offer to work to hunt. See if he needs some fences mended or bushogging done. 160 acres he's bound to need a little help with something somewhere.

Help with property taxes and do some work around the place. Does a lease agreement give you any clout as far as running of trespassers? Maybe that would sway him to agree to a lease. It's awesome that he is offering for free. Make sure and tell him that but let him know that you feel like you should do something, anything so you don't feel like you are taking advantage of his friendship and generosity in any way.

If you offer him. $3-6 dollars and acre here in
Montgomery Co and he asks around your toast

But if he's in certain areas the taxes could be high
