After you build him a cabin and run electricity to it, what do you think that $1000 a year is gonna get you? I can tell you what it will get you, "Thank you, we have decided against leasing the property", 9 out of 10 landowners will never go into a contract with hunters that will improve the property--that is just how it is now. rs$10,000 for 200 acres??? Really? I don't think so. Even if he did, the $2500 you offered up ain't near enough either.
