Finding a Texas Hunting Lease


Most hunters in Texas, when looking for a lease, generally think about big deer of good wing shooting. While these are very important, among other things, they're not the end all for finding a good hunting lease. Most folks (at least first time lessors) think that hunting leases are all about a piece of land that they pay to hunt on and it's that simple. In short, nothing could be farther from the truth. Hunting leases are different and vary widely in scope and term. Basically, a hunting lease is solely predicated upon the allowed activities as outlined by the landowner, and as stipulated in the hunting lease contract. So when looking for a Texas hunting lease, regardless of game sought, keep an open mind and be prepared to have your eyes opened as to the rules and requirements before signing a lease. Look far and wide as Texas is a big place and finding a lease with agreeable terms is rewarding for hunters and their fellow lease friends.

But it's not just that simple. In fact, it takes some time to find a hunting lease with agreeable terms that fits your budget. Potential hunting leases have to have just the right ingredients for the place to be productive and enjoyable.

It's also advisable to contact many different people on many different leases to gain first hand knowledge about the place you may potentially be hunting.

Contacting your friends that are on leases is also a good way to find a hunting lease. Friends on leases generally have a good idea of who is looking for lease as well as who has available spots open on a hunting lease.
