hunting leases/private land access

For those of you with experience, how do you approach securing a hunting lease?

I'm not looking for a massive tract of land with a cabin. I just want to get access to a few private acres in my area. (I just moved so I don't yet know anyone here with land who I can ask as a friend.)

What would be a reasonable fee for access during the season? Do landowners generally charge based on # of acres they have? Number of hunters going in on the lease?

I just really have no idea what this sort of thing normally costs, so I'm looking for some guidance so I'm not negotiating blindly.

Thanks.

My father in-law leases out about 36 acres to I think 4 guys for hunting in the fall/winter. He gets about $1050 a year for this. He and is immediate family can still hunt the land, but no others. We occasionally get some venison out of the deal. The same guys have been renting from him for something like 30 years.

In my area, the local gun stores have bulletin boards with people offering hunting leases. Also see them occasionally in the paper or craigslist. You could also try the internet.

Look at Craigs list and if your state has an hunting paper and online presence look there. Sometimes you can find a person that will “lease” his land to you to hunt is you pay the yearly taxes and insurance but that is getting harder to find.

I will not hunt pubic land, too dangerous as allot of hunters on PL shoot ant anything that movers and will hunt too close to where you are set up.

I am on a lease with about 15 other people. Most of us have been in the club for 20 plus years. dues are $700 a year per member. We have 800 acres.

Good luck on your search, let us know what you find

Get word around, ask folks. Adds in paper/boards, online. IF you show respect for property, people more land can open up.
I have some dang nice property for hunting. Have some regular folks that hunt yearly. (and waste time getting rid of slobs) Who consider a "No Hunting without permission" as permission.
