Hunting leases provide opportunities for farmers, hunters

A real estate expert says hunting leases provide added income for farmers and better opportunities for hunters.

Troy Langen with the Hunting Lease Network tells Brownfield farmers and ranchers can gain the benefits without the management hassles, whether they live on the property or not. “It’s obviously additional income from the property is what they can expect to bring in. With all of the management services in place, we make sure to take care of all of that paperwork from the accounting side of things to make sure the proper liability release is in place, what liability insurance coverage is in place, and not only that but just control of knowing who is on the property and who has permission to be out there.”

And Langen says hunters like having the ability to work with landowners to develop food plots, tree stand siting and having that piece of ground to themselves come hunting season. “They have the exclusive rights to hunt that property so it’s one for them to go ahead and go early season, let’s say if they’re deer hunting, if they want to pass on a buck and get something bigger later on, they sure can.”

And it’s a good side income for farmers. “Here in the Midwest, a couple of hundred-acre tract with a good mixture of crops and timbers can bring anywhere from three to five thousand dollars.”

The Hunting Lease Network is part of Farmers National Company and is one of several hunting lease advisors connecting farmers and hunters.
