Ever offer help?

This Sunday hunting thing is getting way out of hand.I have a question for some of the private property land owners.Have any of you ever recieved an offer for help around the place in exchange for hunting rights and did you accept the offer?I'm just kinda of curious about this because i have been turned away more times than i can think of even after offering this to the land owner.I really think some of you could really gain from this in the form of getting things done and keeping an extra eye on the property for trespassers and such.I feel that it's right to respect the owners wishes and if this sunday hunting thing does happen and he or she says no hunting on sunday then your expected to abide.

Re: Ever offer help?

I can't answer from a landowners point of view, but have offered to help with work many times. I've only been taken up on the offer a couple times, but rarely get denied, so I always make sure to express my appreciation after the season in different ways.

If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.

Sunday Hunting -Make it like other states

If Sunday hunting comes to PA, you'll see more opportunities for land owners and farmers to lease the hunting rights on their land.
More residents of the large metro areas like Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, New York City, New Jersey suburban areas, will start to have a great chance to find a two day weekend to spend their time in Penn's Woods.
Land owners won't have to give away the hunting opportunities free and make some money on their investment, with weekend opportunity hunting.

Get a change in the laws. You'll get, maybe something different, than you wished for.

Re: Sunday Hunting -Make it like other states

Yes i could see maybe some owners trying to make a few bucks with leasing out the land,question though,wouldn't leasing the land be kind of expensive on the owners side with insurance involved due to accidents on his property and a possible law suit if one would occur? And isn't this considered a type of business where the owner would have to report earnings when tax time comes around?Never really looked into all the laws when it comes to leasing out property,not that i own any.

The landowner could have a liability waver written up and signed by the person/persons leasing the land. As far as taxes???

Re: Sunday Hunting -Make it like other states

How can there be leases? The farm bureau says that if sunday hunting passes every farm in the state will be closed to hunting, right?

Given the thousands of leases throughout the midwest, something tells me they'll figure out the fees, insurance, taxes, etc. to make it profitable. Either that or there are already thousands of landowners losing money.

Philly lawyers will be licking their chops.
