School Board Leases.
 
Just got back from a committe meeting with the Vermilion Parish School Board.

Me and 5 friends were their to place a bid for a school board section So. of Pecan Island. Not even a full section about 465 acres.

The present lease holder had the proir 5 years for about $6,800/yr.

4 bids. Our's was read 2 nd. $15,500. The leassors had a partner (Member), bid against him. 31K.

The leasse holder bid $37,000. That's F ing CRAZY.

COULD NOT BELIEVE IT. Can any of you believe that Money!

Easy to believe if the hunting is any good. It's done got stupid!:eek:

Super Spook 07-18-2011 07:06 PM

Dudes with big checkbooks pay big money to consistantly kill birds. I would if I had the cheese. That is crazy though. Is that lease that good?

Plenty of companies out there can easily fork out the g's for something like that to take a few customers on a few hunts.

This is so true. This is the first year in my life that I'm not in a hunting lease. Greed has taken the sportsmanship and fun out of it. I say let'em have it.

Maybe the WMA's will be a little thinner??
Bigj Howed you guys do in GI our trip sucked too many problems to post...

Should be an outstanding property but $ don't work considering it's only 465 acres. All the bottoms leases are in llc's to charge back those crazy dollas. Options are only pubic land and that isn't much of an option n my book.

Did good Thur. evening and Friday in the rain. Saturday and Sunday was a little slow. You should have passed by.

specktator 07-18-2011 09:26 PM

Big money down in PI. Doctors, lawyers, politicians, etc. My uncle's lease just came back up for bid. No telling what he paid. Might be the same lease u are talking about.

Is it only some parishes that lease out school board property? Because I know for some places all you need is a permit to hunt it and pretty much anyone can get one.

Raymond 07-19-2011 07:32 AM

I have never witnessed any free hunting on any school board property in the state. Lease payments are used in each boards general fund. With the deficits most boards operate under I doubt any would allow users free access when they can get top dollar. Never have and never will enter the school board bidding wars, I have always believed this system is rigged.

Why do you say public land is not much of an option?? I know tons of people that hunt WMA's and do really well consistantly. Yes the hunting is a little more work, but usually produces plenty of quality ducks.

evidrine 07-19-2011 08:45 AM

St. Landy parish gives a permit to hunt school board property. Its free. You go to the office and fill out a sheet. Its not a big piece of land, but good location.

Big deer come out of WMA's. It takes time to scout it and to know how to hunt it. I just feel safer knowing im on my own lease and who is there with me. I've climbed too many trees on WMA's to find out once the sun comes up that there is someone sitting a couple hundred yards away from me in another tree. When they are ready to go, they climb down, fire up a four wheeler down the trail, and make all kinds of racket on their way out. It can be good hunting, just takes time and patience.

1. I duck hunt only,WMA,NWR's are not managed for the hunter to kill ducks on.
2. Pressure, the same idiots I see on the lake are on the refuge systems wandering around clueless.
3. At 45 I have done my time hunting public,if that is all there is I would rather sell my equipment and find another hobby.

DUCKGOGETTER 07-19-2011 11:44 AM

Raymond i'm just like you i'm done with hunting the refuges. Nothing wrong with it, cause i can remember pounding the ducks in sabine back in my younger days.
