Hello, I’m Keith from Trophy Deer Hunting Secrets. And today we’re going to discuss the 3 most important items to include in your deer hunting lease. So what are those 3 most important items? Before we get to that let’s talk a little bit about hunting on leased land. If you want to improve your chances of going home with a trophy deer you definitely want to hunt on leased land. Studies show that approximately 80% of hunters choose to hunt on leased land. As a matter of fact, they spend more than $60 million for the privilege to do so. So, what is a deer hunting lease? A deer hunting lease is a legal contract between you the hunter and the land owner. Basically it establishes all the guidelines and the rules that will be followed during the deer hunting season so that way there are no surprises or misunderstandings. But before you can enter into a deer hunting lease you have to actually find land to hunt on. The truth is, that finding good land to hunt deer on has become increasingly more challenging over the past few years. There is always the option of hunting on public land, but, when you do a number of problems could arise. The first thing is that the land could be over hunted. Which means that the deer numbers there will be low, they’re probably stressed and not even in the area. Additionally, hunting on public land also presents some safety risks. You don’t know who else is hunting in the area, what their skills are, and so on. So, it increases the odds of accidental injury. So what other options do you have? Well again, first you could choose to private land and ask the owner for permission. Second, you could consider joining a local hunting club. Or third, you could choose a self guided hunt through a reputable outfitter. Any of these options provides you the opportunity to hunt the species of deer you want and to have other options such as the choice of weapon, like a rifle or a bow. But today, we’re gonna focus on the deer hunting lease that you’re going to enter into with a private land owner. It’s imperative that this deer hunting lease is well written. And, that it ultimately benefits you the hunter but, the land owner as well. Although the lease will contain a number of items, the 3 most important aspects to be included on the lease are the following, the price. The first thing you should agree upon is the price. Since contracts vary, you need to know exactly what you’re going to be paying for the right to hunt on this property. This allows the land owner to provide the hunter a great opportunity to hunt without spending a fortune. Additionally, this becomes an excellent means of extra income for the land owner. The second item you need to make sure is listed in your lease is the type and quantity of deer. It’s very important to list the species of deer that you’ll be allowed to hunt. Using blanket expressions such as “deer” should be avoided in the contract lease. Use specific list such as whitetail, muley, bucks, does, etc. Additionally, you should list the number of deer that can actually be harvested from the land. Lastly, it is important that you list that you have the right to scout on the property prior to the deer hunting season. It should list a specific time frame this will give you a chance to look for bedding spots, feeding areas, etc. This is probably the most important item to have on the deer hunting lease. Make sure that this is included. Some additional information that is often included in deer hunting leases is a clause by the land owner, generally this clause will state that her or she is not responsible for damaged gear, injury or even death. With experienced hunters, the risk of something bad happening is obviously greatly reduced but a statement like this provides protection for the land owner.
