View Full Version : Trespass Fee
07-23-2001, 07:18 PM
Ok, I made an offer a while back about maybe letting someone hunt some X3A property for a trespass fee. Seems I have a couple possible takers. So, I am looking for some input from others on what you think is a reasonable amount for something like this.
7000 acres, fenced, private property. Two fence lines border national forest property, one fence line borders a game refuge.
Give me some ideas folks.

Hey Big Dog
Do you have any antelope on your ranch? ###Got drawn for antelope this year, but not exactly sure if your ranch is in the Likely Tables hunt (Zone 3).

Yea we occasionally get the goats on our side of the road but not enough that try for the tags. I did for a few years but gave up.
The property is on the other side of the road from Grasshopper plain and yes it is in the Likely Tables zone.

I'd say the fee depends on the quality of hunting and the amount of hunters that will be allowed to hunt the property. ###If you want to limit to only 10-15 hunters a few days a week I'd say anywhere from $100-500 per hunter for the season. ###Of the properties I've hunted, I'd say 10 hunters per 5000ac is max...

Well, this is about 7000 acres and I am probably going to limit it to two or three. The season isn't that long and I will need to drive up there to give the guided tour before the season. That is a long haul from Oakland. Especially when it isn't going hunting...lol

have you set a price yet

No, I am trying to figure ouy what the standard range is,

I've never leased land to hunt so I can't give you an idea what to charge. Maybe you should look at it from a business proposal. You could base the fee on how many miles you would have to drive to get there, how long it takes to get there, how much time it would take to do the tour, how much time it would take to do necessary paperwork. You could even figure in how much taxes would be during the time the land is leased. I'm not sure what kind of work you do but you could base your hourly rate at the same rate you would charge a client. Just a thought.

Have you checked with DFG on the regulations? I am not sure if it falls into a category where you might need a permit to do so.

I've got a buddy in the foothills, D-zone, that charges $500 for deer season. ###Not sure of the exact acreage, but it is multiple thousands as well. ###But, hunting X-1 last year I ran into a rancher that charges $1000 for the season. ###Your rate should reflect what you feel your proplerty is worth for someone else to have tromping access to it.

Fubar, yes I have. We have been working on this for a couple years now. We are slowly working with DFG in enhancing the place more so that they will give us a couple tags that we can sell. I just got into a duck blind that has insurance so I am talking to that company about this property.
Litch, this is private property and I am not doing any guide service. So what transacts between me and another hunter who I let on the property is our business as far as I am concerned. But thanks for the warning.

Between $250 - 400
