It's not a uncommon practice for landowners to lease out their harvested feilds, especially in certain locals with good seasonal (migratory) bird hunting. Alot of hunters lease out feilds on a seasonal basis around here. we have great duck and goose usually in the fall and absolutly spectacular spring snow goose hunting. I still remember when all you had to do was ask and you'd have all the property you could possibly need for free but now about every other person you ask asks for compensation or has already leased out their stuff. Still alot of great hunting spots around public and private, come on and try it out sometime.
Some days you do everything right and don,t bag a thing , Some days you do everything wrong and still get LUCKY !!!
