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:



watch your mouth woody.. :biggrin:


different areas require different stratagys..

some areas, you have 2 options.. spend money on a lease, or hunt over crowded public land that is marginal.. believe it or not, in some areas, asking permission is a thing of the past..

There are a handful of clubs here in UT that are in the neighborhood of $30,000-$40,000 to join and then about $5,000 in annual dues. The thing I like about them (aside from prime locations that hold thousands of birds) is most of the clubs here only allow hunting 3 days per week and they rotate which areas get hunted each week so some spots sit untouched for days, so the pressure is very light. But yes, it is expensive.


If you bought into a club at that price at 40 and hunted until you are 75, you would spend 215K. For that price you could buy about 30 acres of land put in dikes and a well. Best of all it would be yours, so pressure would be as light as you want. Plus it is an investment.

Woody- the key difference between being a member of a club here and owning the land myself is land ownership puts maintainence of the land squarely on my shoulders. I'm not a farmer, nor do I want to be. I want to go to work and do what I'm good at so I can pay somebody that is skilled at maintaining land in such a way that it draws waterfowl in large numbers. The clubs here are maintained by a full-time staff who keep the blinds and pits in tip top shape, plant corn and grain, build and maintain dikes and impoundments. Each of the clubs I've looked into have an amazing club house, private boat docks and the blinds are spread so far apart you never see another guy when you hunt. Buying a membership into a club here is also an investment, as more and more pressure gets put on public WMAs, the price of buying into a club has gone up annually (other than 2008-2009 when the economy tanked) since the clubs' inception.

I was messing with that guy, like I said to Spinner, duck hunting is for fun... do whatever is fun for you.

By now I figured everyone knew that most of what I say is to be taken with a grain of salt. I am usually just messing around.

That is a sad fact, it gets harder every day to find a farmer willing to give permission for free.

Agreed. A strong back during the summer and cooking good food for them during the season is what gets me spots, manners help too.

Fair enough, I guess it is a different mind set. I don't mean to insult anybody, but I get more out of the hunt if I put the work in to get there. For me it is not about killing birds, it is about hunting them. If i wanted to shot my shotgun and that was it, clays are pretty cheap. But like I said, it is all for fun and do whatever brings you joy.

Where I used to hunt in Southeast Louisiana there was no such thing as public land. Every last stump and mudpile from New Orleans to Venice was staked as claim by someone. You had to lease a 50 acre patch of knee deep swamp grass for $2500, to hunt at all. Of course you always had the option to hunt the 1/4 square mile of public land for the entire state's worth of public hunters.
Usually we just outlawed but you had to be quick about picking up decoys or you would get attacked by an oysterman driving his boat with one hand and shooting a 12 ga. with a shepherd's crook with the other.

*Side note: 8k is fine for a lease like you are talking about. Some years we would pay 5-6k/boat for roughly 500 acres in 6-7 different spots.

The truth is, I love to scout. I spend more time scouting than I do actual hunting. I love to get out and find myself in areas I've never been before. There is sooooooo much public land in UT for waterfowl hunting that if you will put in the time, you can and will find birds. And like you, if I go out for a hunt and don't shoot any birds, I've still had an enjoyable time, but let's be honest, we hunt with hopes that we will kill.
Hunting a club doesn't mean there are ducks tethered to a sage brush by their foot and you drive out into a pasture in a heated truck and shoot them out the window. The main difference I've noted in my very, very limited experience with clubs is the scouting part is removed. You still need to get up early, know how to set a decoy spread, call and shoot straight, but the most appealing factor is you're not hunting overly pressured birds with guys set-up right on top of you.
