3 Ways to Improve an Already Great Hunting Lease Hunting clubs are known to covet the most lucrative leases. Competition for those leases can be heated if there is more than one hunting club in town. So imagine a club that already has a great hunting lease they have enjoyed for years, yet they still want something better. Should they join the competition for a new lease or find ways to improve what they already have?
There is more to improving a great hunting lease than finding a better deal on hunting property insurance. There is more to it than simply erecting a couple of new tree stands or putting up posted signs around the property. Improving an already great hunting lease means finding ways to attract more game to your property. Below are three great ways to improve an existing hunting lease. TheAmerican Hunting Lease Association suggests making sure you have the legal right to alter the property you have leased before you make any changes. Check your lease documents and, if necessary, talk to the owner. Increase the Food Supply Every animal on your lease has a specific diet. For example, deer tend to eat wildflowers, various grasses, flowering weeds, and so on. It turns out they also like cultivated vegetables and the same kinds of grasses farmers grow for livestock. A great way to improve an existing hunting lease is to find out what food sources your preferred game finds desirable. Then research surrounding land to find out what already exists. The idea is to choose a food source that is not widely available and then increase the supply of that food source on your land. Create Natural Shelter If your hunting lease allows it, look for ways to increase natural shelter for your game of choice. Again, we will use deer as an example. Keep in mind that bucks look for a place where they will feel safe and secluded, a place they can remain in for the long term. That is why they look for things like tall grass and thick ground cover.
You can create more natural shelter by planting grasses and shrubs that will grow thick and fast. You can hinge cut trees if your hunting lease allows it, or you can use fertilizer to encourage more rapid growth of what already exists. Lots of tall, thick grass is also encouraging to does and their fawns. Be Sensitive to Pressure Lastly, being sensitive to hunting pressure is an effective way to improve a hunting lease without actually altering the land. Let us use deer hunting as an example one more time. At the peak of the hunting season, the pressure put on land by the sheer number of hunters can quickly decimate the deer population. It can also drive animals from one location to another. Being sensitive to pressure can help you preserve your hunting lease so that it offers a great experience every season. For example, local ordinances and your hunting property insurance limit the number of hunters allowed on the land at any one time. Consider further reducing that limit in order to relieve pressure. If you are willing to be especially radical, you may want to limit the number of gun hunters or just eliminate deer hunting altogether for one season. The surrounding pressure will drive animals onto your land, making next year's hunt that much better. With all the competition for great hunting leases, it may be better to work to improve your current lease rather than finding a new one. Hopefully, the three tips listed here will be useful to you and your hunting club.
