I was wondering the same thing. Is that per gun or for all 6 together? If it is all 6 then I believe I can fill about 4 spots and possibly all 6. PLease let me know.

If I wasn't trying to build a house, I'd get in on that. For an executive type lease with a lodge and guaranteed water, it's not too bad.


Go price how much it cost to buy water these days.!!

I was offered 500 acres of DU property, 1st year hunted, water, in-ground blinds, lodge and guides provided...at the amazingly low price of only $24,000 per year with 6 guns max.

That works out to nearly what he is offering and not considered a bad price at all for hunters who absolutely hate (or are too old) to do all the work themselves. There is something to be said for just showing up at the lodge, enjoying fine food and drink, and then sitting in a first-class blind with someone who can tell you what kind of duck is coming in and whether or not you can shoot it (I failed duck ID in school).

There are a lot of guides out there who promise an executive-style hunt and then ask you to tote the dekes and sit in mud up to your #$% for twice their normal price. If there weren't a lot of us who appreciate high-class leases then they wouldn't exist.

Amen, good luck filling the lease Jody and sure wish that was in my price range. It may sound ridiculous to some but there are alot of clubs offering the same for more, HBR is one in particular and I have hunted this area before and the hunting was as good or better than at Hall's Bayou and is cheaper.

Good luck filling it Jody. You planning on coming down here for a hunt again this year?
They don't have to hunt with me! Only the ones that want to kill! :D

To answer one of the questions above, yes it has come to this, unfortunately. Go price some decent rice country and then calculate running a 36" pump 24hrs a day for a week or so, or pay the canal co. $20/ac for water. We can take 40 hunters at $500/piece if you'd rather, but the lodge will get pretty crowded. :eek:

I'd love to come down and hunt.....lemme see if I can talk ol' JJCan'tcatchatrout into coming down.

I hunt near that area and we spend $10-$15K depending on rainfall flooding our fields. We have 1200 acres of rice and fallow fields and we flood about 600 to 900 acres from year to year. Water is our number one expense but the hunting is great.

Sorry to get off topic...You only pay $20/ac for water? :cool:

And the LCRA is charging $125 :eek:

Glad I'm somewhere in the middle I guess. And here I thought our water rates were outragous.

You always have a standing invite down my way Jody, that is if you can be seen with a low life like me! HA HA
After the hunt you put me on last year I may be down there every weekend!

Chuck: Last time I bought duck water it was $20/acre....but that was 4 or 5 years ago. We've had pumping rights since then and the "only" cost is feeding the pump.
