Question for guys that lease

Postby jkm » Sat Dec 14, 2013 11:36 pm

Its hard to get any productive feedback from the local forum so I thought I would ask you guys. I joined an outfit two years ago that is basically set up like a deer club. We have several holes ( @ 50) and you are assigned holes on a rotating basis. I pay 8k for 6 hunting spots and a camp house. I am happy with the set up for the most part and we kill a few ducks. The hunting is very easy which is good for me because I take kids and older guys on just about every hunt. The one problem I have is the blind situation is crappy. With the sharing the blinds suck. I am considering adding a private hole next year that would be for our group only so we can build a quality blind. This would run the cost up to @ 10k. This seems like a reasonable amount for this set up or am I wrong? What can you get for 10K in the NE La, SE Ark, or Ms. Delta areas. Just looking for comparisons not specifics.

Holy cow that's a lot of money!! I pay 750 bucks for 2 boat blinds, and 175 acres of Platte river frontage. And I thought that was a lot of money. I feel a lot better after reading this haha.

Lucky for you, there's 1/10 as many hunters and just as many ducks in your area. Supply and demand. 60 degree hunting weather may also be part of it as opposed to -4. :lol3:

With 10k to drop you should be able to find something with a camp to hunt by yourself. I wouldn't drop that much and not have exactly what I wanted. Just look around its places out there.

Dobbs, From what I have been able to find it is not that bad of a deal, but I think I am going to start doing a little searching. The one big thing that really makes me second guess a change is the club holes are scattered within a 30x30 mile square which really helps with duck movements in the area. I'm not talking migration, but duck usage of different habitats. I would hate to be confined to 2-3 holes that were only good a few times a year. I guess if everyone could lease the "X" it would not be called duck HUNTING. Any other's input appreciated. Thanks

That sounds like a great idea, but in reality its not near as easy or as cheap as you would think. There are alot of variables to consider other than cost.

Crazy how???? If you divide it by 6 hunters it is only $1,700 per hunter which includes a very nice 3 br camp with elec., gas, satelite, guaranteed water, and safe storage for atvs and equipment all included. I choose to pay for all 6 slots so I can bring whoever I want and my kids. I asked for some comparisons not uninformed responses. Thanks

First, this is an open Internet forum, and you will get whatever response the users want. So suck it.

Second you didn't provide near enough information for anyone to answer your question. So suck it.

The only thing I left out was the part about the utilities being paid which is not that much anyway. How in the world does a 12yr. old have so many posts?

You only have 45 posts, the real question is where does a 12 year old get 10k every year?

I work my ass off at two jobs to pay for it thats why I don't have time to sit around posting all the time. I really appreciate your posting up. You helped me realize that 10K is a great deal so my family and friends don't have to deal with losers like yourself. Thanks again.

Why not keep paying the 8k and spend 2k on blind improvements? Don't y'all have work days to fix stuff like this up? Is no one else complaining about the quality of the blinds? What's wrong with them?

If you get a private hole, you'll be tied to that one spot or a spot with a crappy blind. Then you'll probably end up over hunting your hole and be right back where you started - $2k.

$10,000 is steep, but I know a guy that's paying about $50,000, but probably more by now. Of course the camp is way nicer than most peoples homes and $50,000 is a drop in the bucket for him.

This is definitely a good suggestion. The blinds are in good shape at the beginning of the season, but by the middle to end they show alot of wear. If we know where we are going to be the afternoon before we usually slip in and do a little improving. We do not have work days it is handled by the guys we pay. We are certainly not against the work details it just is not set upthat way. We are supposed to improve he blinds as we use them, but we have some groups that do not care. This is the main problem with it being such a big club. The other problem is nobody ever really sees the other groups because our camps are spread out all over and each group has their own hole on any given day. I think you are on to something with the work days. I may try to plan a meeting to discuss.

You're not to smart are you?

How about this... learn to scout and ask for permission it will save you thousands and get you better hunting. That is why 10K is crazy talk, plus I honestly find the "lease" (sounds like a duck club in this case) type of guy to be as much of a hunter as a PETA member. You're lazy and you don't want to do any work yourself, worse yet you get on the interwebs to flaunt about how much you spend. When you get an answer you don't like you attack it's source like a pathetic liberal. :thumbsup:

^^^This sounds like exactly what is going on. I kill ducks and don't have a lease. That is an obscene amount of money especially since you have to work two jobs to be able to afford it. If I had to work two jobs, a duck lease would be low on the priority list.

Just got back into work and wow I think some of the guys on here need to get off the computer and go hunting. I'm new to this forum stuff and normally would not keep up the back and forth, but it is actually quite entertaining to see how true ass clowns think.
It is slow at work tonight so I will keep it going.

Its not cheap that's a fact, BUT, its an investment that if youre not to old is going to be there for you verses the possibility of SS going belly up in 25 years/.
