    I'm wondering what the going rate is for a deer lease. I'm guessing that they very depending on the area of the state. I'm out west

    I’ve heard $10/acre average, but yes, I would assume some areas of the state might command a bit of a “premium”.

    I pay about $6 an acre. It's not near a metro area and it has cattle.

    Lease prices are determined by the owner producing they have quality deer.

    After hunting Thunderbird for 15 years, I was done dealing with inconsiderate hunters, thieves, not being able to use a 4 wheeler, etc. Mind you, I went way back in the WMA and still had issues. If it weren't for having corn out, I wouldn't care about the cows. Plus, I can do about whatever I want on this place year round and limit others access to it. That's worth it, to me.

    we paid 2000 a year for 1500 acres in southern arkansas. weyerhauser was the landlord. we owned 10 acres outright, it was an old homeplace and had a dog run cabin on it-weyerhauser wouldn't touch the place, we fixed it up really nice, drilled a well, built a bunkhouse that would sleep around 40 or so. during deer camp season we'd all head down there, hired 2 old retired cooks from the little rock holiday inn-usually stay a week. the camp had been there since the days of hunting from mules and packs of dogs.

    A 4ft fence around the feeder (10-15ft away from it) should keep cattle out. Deer pretty much ignore fences anyway, unless they're 5-6ft high.

    Just a thought. :drunk2:

    Yeah, fencing is next on the to-do list.

    We've got somewhere around 15 hunting spots here on the ranch which is 10k acres. Each hunter leases a "zone". They've all got short fences around their feeders and I haven't heard any complaints of our cattle getting in their feed pens. We do feed our cattle daily from about late October thru early April. I THINK our hunters pay $3k yearly. It's a very tight group of guys it seems.
