I believe that Mossy Oak offers a leasing service.

check with some of the land and timber companies in the area your wanting a lease. Most of them around here offer leasing. I know RMS (Resource Management Services) offers land leasing for hunting and they are spread all across the south east, might wanna check their website and see if they have any listings available.

Thanks for that info but I was actually looking for information about leasing my land out.

Yup, that is what I understood.  A leasing service is the middleman between the landowner and the lessee.

Maybe I'm confused by LAF's post. Now that I've reread it it starts out like he's suggesting I check with the land and timber companies to see if they are interested in leasing and then it looks like he is saying I might find a lease from them. What am I reading that is not what you are saying?  :D

You can lease on your own, I lease clients land for them.  You need a signed lease, list of hunters (restrict the numbers) and require a hunting lease insurance package.  My insurance runs a little over $300 for a thousand acres.  They run year to year and you need to visit every now and then to find out what is going on.  Best bet is lease to an established group.  On the 1000 acres the leasee's are mostly all family members.  No alcohol policy, probably wont be effective, but,  you got to have it.  Leasing to locales is a saving grace, reputation and all can be checked.

If you go this route, I can send you my insurance source.

Actually there's a little more to it. Lindy has the idea that if and when we move to Central America we can lease our place house and all to  well to do hunters for a year round hunting/vacation spot through an outfit called Hunting Lease Network. She's looking to get $2000 a month out of it. Leases are for a full year. Without actually signing on to this outfit she has talked to them and they are telling her they have put some feelers out about it and have gotten several inquiries. I'm not so sure about it all although it does seem to be a completely legit outfit. They do take a considerable cut though, 25%. They provide the liability insurance. Does anyone know anything about this outfit or this kind of deal? Anybody think it's feasible?

Which was why I mentioned Mossy Oak.  They do not presently have any lease land available, but they are in the business.

Lee,

   Never leased my own but if I were going to do so I think I would start with my local attorney for the contract and a local realtor for the actual finding a client and lease chacking. I'd check out the realtor first to see if they were interested and capable of checking up on the land. I would think you would need to provide a detailed list of restrictions/limitations for use of the land and facilities.

   Do you want to retain access for you or your family? If so list how many and conditions, etc. Many hunters would not be willing to share, some might if the conditions/prices were right. Do you allow wood cutting on the place? Maintenance of the fences and gates? One technique to share access is using a chain and locking locks into other locks so any authorized person can use their key/lock.

    I once listed some remote mountain land in N. Ga. (had to ford a creek, park in a corn field then walk a mile from there up an old un-drivable logging road/trail) with a name brand realtor and after several months I checked and the owner apologized and said his staff were not set up to sell undeveloped land and referred me to a friend, I contracted with them and they promptly sold it soon for me.

   Good luck.

I certainly  understand  why someone  would  want to lease their land. It sure helps to pay the taxes and such. It does make it difficult  for some folks to afford it. Especially someone who  has a few kids to think about.
     It just might eventually turn hunting into a rich man' sport
