Leasing Hunting Land – 3 Factors To Consider

A hunting club starts off by inviting hunters to sign up as members by paying an annual membership fee. Next, the club management keeps a lookout for private landowners who are willing to lease out their land for hunting. The amount collected as membership fees takes care of the lease payments and the members get to use the land for stalking game. Thus, a hunting club and leased hunting land go together!

Sometimes, just the availability of leased hunting land brings hunters together to form a club. It is also possible that a hunting club need not look for private landowners outside its circle; one of its own members could be a landowner who is willing to lease out his/her land for hunting.

There are three aspects to consider when going in for leasing of hunting land–

(1) While scouting certain locations or areas which seem ideal for hunting, one can come across tracts of land owned by private landowners. True, the concept of a hunting club or even leasing out his/her land may be something the owner has never heard about, or even thought about!

In that case, the scout has to explain about the club and why they would like the land during hunting seasons. Once there is clarity regarding the matter, there should be no further hitch in getting the land on lease. As a matter of fact, many private landowners would realize that leasing out hunting land will actually bring in additional income! Even unused land is being put to good use!

(2) Leases for hunting land are to be paid annually. So a budget has to be worked out before actually putting committment to paper. How many members are there in the hunting club? A meeting with the members should be held to come to a consensus regarding the annual membership fees. The amount collected from each member when added up should prove sufficient for a year’s lease on the selected property.

Say, the number of hunters is less; naturally, the total amount collected is also not enough to pay for any piece of property. The hunting club has to find a way to increase membership or request members to contribute higher amounts towards annual fees.

(3) When funds seem sufficient, the hunting club can approach the private landowner whose grounds they want to lease as hunting land. It is up to the parties to decide whether the entire lease payment has to be done once a year or some amount is to be paid monthly. The monthly scheme is more viable, since a larger amount gets collected as new hunters become members. Generally, annual fees are paid on the first of January. The leftover money is utilized for repairs, maintenance, etc. on the leased hunting land as agreed upon by both parties.
