Is there anyone in a hunting club or a lease out of state? What do you pay for it and do you consider it worth it, what would you suggest and how many days do you get to hunt on the club or lease?

In my experience it is only worth joining a club or leaseing a place if you have plenty of time, and the ability to go when the ducks show up. You may take time off to go hunt and get there and it be extremely slow. You spend vacation time to drive half way across the country to shoot one shoveler, or wood duck you could have killed in Georgia. The key to the whole deal is being able to pack up and leave whenever the birds are there. As far a costs go, it is like anything, you can spend as much or as little as you like, but you often get what you pay for. Many of the clubs there are filled with locals and it can be tough to get in if you don't know someone. You can lease a blind, but again the better ones cost more than the cheaper ones. You also don't get lodging with most of the pit leases, so you have to figure in the cost to stay if you go that route. Unless you are retired or self employed and have the ability to spend most of the season out there, IMO you are better off just hiring a guide. If you plan on going back year after year you can go the public land route and chalk the first year up to just figuring everything out.
