SD deer hunting
« on: March 14, 2018, 04:29:13 PM »
i figured this would happen after my buddy shot the 184" in SD last year. the owner increased the price 30%. considering we have a lodge to ourselves, it's still not a bad price.

does anyone have any knowledge on SD land leases? any idea what SD leases go for? i got some calls and emails out in SD, but i figured someone here might have some input. anyone done any research out there?

   No I don't know but I really like hunting in SD and I am interested in getting more info to.  I have only bow hunted in SD and would really like the chance to rifle hunt it.

notsams- this is tough. i tried a lease website and they said i needed to be a member before they give any info. no thx.
      - i did reconnect w/ an old TH member and he gave me a couple names. one was in the indian land. that was a long shot to draw and       expensive
       - ND seem to be tough because of the oil industry. lodging is all spoken for
       

i have one more shot. i'm a member of QDMA and they have a lease group. i will try the contact them this week. i will keep you posted. this could be a case of knowing the right people or bust

i looked at the sight QDMA referenced and they had nothing in SD of size


other than boots on the ground, i think i'm out of ideas. from what i've seen, we are still getting a reasonable deal

if anyone hears anything in SD, i would appreciate it. thx

Yari - was talking to a pal at work about hunting leases earlier in the week, he's seeing prices going up too.  His theory is that with the economy improving & unemployment dropping, more people are out there competing for the available leases, driving prices up through basic supply & demand stuff.  Nobody wants to see a deep economic downturn, but I suppose a healthy economy does have an impact on discretionary spending for stuff like hunting leases.

The company I work for is paying out their annual incentive bonuses this month, based on how each business unit does vs. their plan in the previous year.  Plans vary by region, business, and pay grade, but in total they're handing out over $1B across about 100,000 employees.  That can perk up the local economies pretty nicely, as it doesn't happen to that extent very often so it tends to get treated like "fun money" for the recipients.

mad- i supposed you get about 1/2 of that bonus. no wonder you can retire @--0--0105

it's crazy what folks will pay for deer. leases are a tough business. the owner will push until someone says no. until then the sky is the limit

Ha!  Maybe just a little less than half of it Yari!  But based on the way the pension calculations work for us old timers, it does actually give me a nice little boost so I won't complain much. 

Was just talking with a co-worker today who lost his lease that he'd only had for a year - he's going to spend a three day weekend scouting out 2-3 other potential places he's identified here in-state (deer & turkey) but even if he can land one of them he'll be laying out more cash than he previously has.  Seems to be universal.
