To the OP, take in all the advise here so far...Do Not get on bed with that company. They 're just gonna lease it and skim off their profit, and then you will somehow get screwed in the end. If interested in leasing it, then do it yourself. The people you lease it to must get proof of liability insurance that thry pay for, in addition to the lease. Make sure it is sufficient coverage.

As to yhe guys looking to group together, and possibly lease it...Great idea. This is a nice way to make it affordable to all of you. I was once part of a decent sized hunting club in Ulster many years ago. It was some of the best times of my life. As long as all of the different personalities can get along(not always easy), then it can be a great thing.

Good luck to all, however this may turn out.

I will lease also if you want a group.

What you need to do is setup an llc that will actually own and/or lease the land and then each participant in the hunting club pays membership dues to the club. It's not that hard actually, I have a co-worker that has 275+ acres in Kentucky and does this. He owns the land but the hunting club leases it from him and they handle everything.

Sullivan County is becoming very expensive. The taxes in certain towns like Liberty and Thompson is like Eastern Long Island.
If you do hunt land, the best areas are Calicoon, Fremont, Cochecton and Bethel. The deer herd was hit hard last winter. The area I own land is surrounded by farm land and hard woods. I have mentioned it before, maintain the land. Plant crops that attract and hold wildlife.
Land is cheaper out west starting in Delaware County. I wish everyone the best of luck. I hunted many years opening day leaving from work and hunt all day to leave at night. Nothing like owning your own land with a house.

OP, As you can see, leasing the land would not be a problem, I recommend contacting a few licensed Guides, who, if your land is good will pay a premium to lease your lands. This will mitigate your liability some, As the Guide is licensed, insured yada yada..... I would also consult your attorney as to how you should protect yourself

http://adventure.how...nting-lease.htm


Nice trivia info at that link, especially the $2.27/acre rate. Maybe you will pay that for a week or two.

Our first real lease was 135ac, with a price of $600/yr, with full all-year access. It had a small beat up old cabin, that had bullet holes in the roof. We originally split it up by 6 guys. I held it for 17 years, until the owner decided not to renew, due to him turning it into a "preserve" for only his family. The last 4-5 yrs of it, The price worked it's way up to $2000.00/yr by the last year, which you figure is still NOT bad for 6 people, except it was down to just only me and my dad. But it was still worth it! I absolutely loved every single minute spent up there.

My last lease was for $500 for the year on 65acres/no cabin, just outside of Binghamton. It was all uphill, and was completely overgrown with briars by the fourth year. And that is ehen I decided to buy my own land.

The banks aren't paying squat for interest, so real estate is now my bank account. Grab it now, because God isn't making any more of it!

Never understood why a bunch of us never got together to lease before. Plenty of us are very limited in our places to hunt.

The most difficult part is splitting the cost of a hunting lease and expenses. Every group has the cheap guy.
I hate cheap people, this one guy would get a free ride and ask for a separate check when going out to eat. He always avoided a tip at the table because he knew I gave at least a 20% tip. You need a good crew, people need to share a vehicle and split the costs of the gas and tolls. This guy was clever before leaving his house insisted on seeing the fuel gauge and odometer and getting a receipt for fuel and tolls. He lasted two hunting seasons. It was his turn to use his personal vehicle and the night before said his SUV was going in the shop. He thought that was a way to sneak another trip with us without putting miles on his vehicle.

Not calling you a liar, but really? I don't believe anyone could be that bad.

He tried a couple of times to come hunt my land. I know him from first grade. He is very sneaky, he went to a bow shop in Hicksville before bow season and tells a customer he has a bow for sale that he purchased a year before from there. He sold a year old Mathews Monster for $700 without the case and arrows. That bow needed a new string, guy didn't know anything about archery. He has borrowed 12 ammunition from me for Turkey hunting. I can understand someone who can't afford it, however, he has plenty of money.

I believe him. You'd be amazed how cheap some guys can be. Years back The guys would hit Happy hour after work. There was a place that not only put out a decent free buffet but also had Free drinks for one hour. There was one guy who always made it a point to get there exactly at the start of it order a Dewars and water and then go up for multiple plates of food. One day I was at the bar ordering a drink and this guys comes up and orders another Dewars. (He had at least 2 free already) The bartender makes his drink puts it down and says Happy hour ended 15 minutes ago and she now has to charge for the drink. He put on his coat and walked out. I was embarrassed to even be standing next to the cheap #$%^. I threw her a $20 tip and vowed to never go anywhere with him again.
