Interview with HLRBO: FAQ for Hunting Leases - Shared screen with speaker view
Happy Friday CW Lewis!
I was a couple of minutes late. What is the name and link for this presenter?
Cookie with HLRBO. I've attached a pdf of resources and links
In my experience, if you leave insurance to hunters, they very often don't purchase it and then I'm not covered as a landowner.
Liability and hunt lease insurance:https://nationalwoodlands.com/insurance/
As landowner we purchase insurance and require hunt club to reimburse us.
What about accommodations for multiple over night stays? What is minimum/average acreage for leasing?
What kind of turnover do you have? If you have high rates for lease, it seems likely that you'd have higher turnover and more harvesting for short-term rather than long-term stewardship.
What rate of acres per hunter do you recommend for sustainable hunting?
You said there is no fee for landowners. How do you make money? Commission or application fee from the hunters?
On intake/welcoming does the landowner have to be on site or is someone from HLRBO there?
What did you say the average per acre rate was In GA? We lease to a club in southeast GA and although other landowners tiptoe around rates and what I think you said was VERY high for what I think the going rates are in our area. Our goal has been to cover our property taxes and some.
I used the calculator and it gave $60/acre for 100 acres. These rates seem VERY high.Typical rates that I've heard in my region are less than $15/acre.
What are the expectations for having multiple hunters on your property? is it typical to share the area or do most want it to be only one hunter using it at one time?
Recommended rates for sustainable hunting is no more than 1 hunter per 100 acres. This is for annual leases by clubs.
Danielle, can you discuss integrating a year lease and the impact/integration into or on the forest management plan and its stages.
is it typical for the landowner to meet with the hunters in person before and after their rental time?
What do you suggest about gutting in the field etc?
Disposal of guts and skin - field dressing
Thanks so much for all the info and advice!! Will definitely look into HLRBO
Thank you both!
