I'm on 55 acres and just about all of it could be used for running but predators have just about wiped me out. I'm lucky enough to still get a few races here but it's boring running the same spot over and over. What aggrivates me is its the old time farmers sons who moved to the suburbs(or even worse try to make their little piece in the country as non country as possible)that don't care a thing about hunting or the outdoors on any level, or even just appreciating it. All they see is dollar signs.

Not saying that farmers should think about hunters before their families I guess I'm just sick of seeing hundreds if not thousands of acres of just plain row crops everywhere and nobody is allowed on It.

In the part of iowa im from all we have is row crop corn and soybeans as far as the eye can see, but its loaded with rabbits and as soon as the crops are taken out whatever crp, wooded draws, and thick timber there is are where they all congregate and makes fine fall and winter hunting. We have a handful of places we can run year rround but majority we cant get in til after deer season which leaves the last 6wks of season. The deer hunters are our biggest problem here, worse than any predator. Gotten into a couple very nasty confrontations "screwing" someones deer hunt up even though we had permission where we were. The first yelling words" what the h#!$ are u doing rabbit hunting during deer season??! I said they dont close down rabbit season here for deer season. My 7yr old nephew whose a ministers son then got to witness about 10 f words and every other word in the book because i was rabbit hunting where i had permission and screwed these guys deer hunt. They did have permission too but landowner failed to let either party know. I used to deer hunt quite a lot but never have since its getting WAY too serious here and many neighbs and friends are now enemies over those dang horns.

KM thats what started the hunting lease trend. Land owners got tired of hearing complaints from hunters. Im sorry that young man had to see and hear that.

Deer hunters, in general, are not our friends.

I'm losing places to run left and right the last couple of years.
Sad to say, but this the normal for me in NJ for the last 15yrs. My hunting spots are very few and far in between. If it wasn't for my love of the hounds I would've hung this up yrs ago. I still have places to run, but no hunting allowed.

It, that is money, does now but back in the 80s I talked to a lot of farmers while I was trying to sell seed corn . Hunting was a topic of conversation a lot of times. Hunting leases wernt herd of then. I can remember farmers telling me about always being complained to by hunters about other hunters. Some just decided to post no hunting and some asked there favorite guy for a little money for an excues to tell everyone else no. It made the one that bought the hunting rights look really bad back then. But no one could really blame the farmer. I know of one really good fishing hole that because of fisherman conflicts it got leased . Then the bidding began

Reading this thread makes me see some of the wisdom of the WV DNR instituting a $5 "conservation" fee with licenses, both hunting and fishing. I definitely see added public hunting land as well as fishing access sites since that was incorporated.
I personally try to avoid rabbit hunting private land and stay clear of any deer hunters on public land till after the heart of our deer seasons are over. I deer hunt too, and just see it as a courtesy to others to try to give them space to hunt, same as if some one else is running their dogs.

Solution for the deer hunter thing and rabbit hunting. I brought them (Deer hunters ) on big rabbit hunts during deer season and put them in spots where they killed most of the rabbits and we all got limits. I took photos put them on the internet and showed them some great recipes. When they got excited I gave them a good rabbit dog and and called them to go on other hunts with me and that was all it took. I'm In big time!!!! I also took them on fishing trips to great spots when the bite was on and now I can hunt where and when I please.

I know many rabbit hunters that get together and lease huge tracks of fine hunting land to rabbit hunt on. I have been part of that also. You can do anything you really want to bad enough but nothing is free.
