Yall are right. If i had good land for hunting purposes, i would want to get most money possible.So your right that you cant blame the land owners. It just sucks sometimes. The guy that leases to us has 3 or 4 leases just for ducks not including deer leases. He told me to my face that famous comment that duck hunting is for the rich and i was lucky to have it while i did. In the back of my mind, i agree but i was paying 2200 dollars a year for a membership in a marsh area with 6 other guys. the problem is that in 2 years it will double and in 4 years it will triple. I talked to a landowner in lake arthur who told me he had been leasing his property to a guy for 15 years. 200 acres for 5000 dollars at the end. Another fellow that hunted with the guy turned around and offered the landowner 15000 a year. I know what i would have done so i dont blame the landowner. So from this point forward thats what that land will go for and then the lease next to it and the next and so forth. So mabye i just need to make more money or go on 2 or 3 payed hunts a year, since the last thing i wanna do is find another hobby after doing this since i was 8 years old. Thats life. Sorry guys, im just ranting on blowing off steam.
