How to Profit from Your Land with Hunting Leases
Every year, millions of Americans hunt and fish in the woods. They’re lured by the thrill of the chase, the beauty of the outdoors and the desire to preserve our hunting heritage—and they’re willing to pay for the privelege of hunting.
In fact, hunting is huge business across the country. Americans spent more than $70 billion on hunting and fishing in 2006 alone, according to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s most recent (2006) National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation.
Given the demand for quality hunting experiences and the shrinking supply of available hunting land, many woodland owners are using hunting leases as a low-stress way to profit from their woods. If your land is rich in wildlife and offers good amenities for hunters, you may want to consider hunting leases.
