    This past weekend a friend and I went and talked to an older gentleman about hunting his 160 acres. We had heard he quit hunting now and leaves for florida in october and returns in may. We talked for an hour with him and finally he says, you guys seem to be very responsible and commented on how great it is that there is an online club, ( I mentioned being on this site), and says yes and come back so he can give us a tour of the land and show us where the best spots are. Talk about an early birthday gift.

    Remember to send him Christmas cards and a small token of appreciation. If possible even offer him money to lease the property as a goodwill gesture. I know he said you can hunt it but someone may try to lease it out from under you if there is no lease in place, this happens all the time in Michigan.

    That is a great gift, being from Michigan (Oakland County) as well I know that it is hard to find nice spots, let alone get permission from a land owner. Congratulations!

    Finding land like that is one of my future goals after finishing college and getting a J.O.B!
