What would you pay????

What is the most you would be willing to pay per year to be part owner of hunting land with good to very good deer population? Let's say it was a couple hundred acres (3 to 4 total owners) of grown over farm with food plots etc to keep the deer on the property. Also there would be a large sanctuary area with the owners not hunting that designated area at all. Remember you are a part owner not a lease.

Deer and spring turkey maybe varmints after deer season. No small game, squirrel or other fall hunting that may bump the deer off the place.

Re: What would you pay????

There are many factors that would need considered. Who and what relationship are the other owners. How will activities be governed. Is there a building. Are there any opportunities to generate funds from the land. Gas wells, farming etc. Partnerships in land can become ugly. Owning land to me means much more than deer hunting.

My answer to the question is I would not join others. I would save and own my own land.

The difference between dreamers and achievers is action.
One try is worth a thousand guesses.

Re: What would you pay????

Loaded question.

1. It must not be in Pa. since this place would get pounded with trespassers.

2. Sundays must be included.

3. The other owners must agree on how it is to be maintained and hunted.

4. This would never happen in Pa.

$50,000 maybe more depending on the details.

PETA hates me, but I'm okay with that......

Taxes alone are just around $10.00 to $35.00 an acre per year.

Income from property timber? Oil/gas leases.

Allow people to cut fire, charge per load. Or add it to lease agreement as part of rent, and sale firewood. This is important management, leave healthy straighter tree for timber plus open the woods up for secondary growth and lower growth.

I would allow smal game as I like to do it best.
You will need areas that are off limits to have a safe hide for animals at least 4 acres each. Only allow hunting after you have your bucks. These should be in a natural area that is protected, look for natural beding area and cut trees to thin and let regrow.

Cost per acre would be high for farm ground. Guessing only without mineral rights from 1500.00 to 3500.00 maybe higher all in location. Have to be in right place at right time.

Neighbors can make or break,something this this. Posted ground kills the hunting around us. Every year we lose more then is opened up. Getting to point of not many more drives for deer. Days of our group seeing 50 - 60 deer are gone. Gone are drives of seeing 15 to 20 deer in the drive. All from posted ground and poaching deer.

Re: What would you pay????

Here's my point for the post. Back in the "old days" lots of guys would join up and buy a hunting camp as partners. It might still be common. The only problem is most of this fell apart when the state thinned the deer herd. many SGL were plenty good enough and alot of deer were harvested.

Well, I want to make sure my kids and their kids have somewhere safe to hunt. This is why I am considering joining up with a few like minded individuals I know. Sure farm land could be a little expensive, but some of the more grown over and abandoned properties are much better habitat and support more deer. I would also think that keeping the property farm assessed taxes would be dirt cheap, so other than food for the deer it would be planted sparingly. Unfortunately for others the ground would be posted. After all why bust my tail so others can reap the reward?
