Minnesota Hunting Leases
If you're in the market for a hunting lease, look no further than southeast Minnesota. This region has the highest deer population densities in a state where a year’s harvest can exceeded 207,000.
Minnesota is often referred to by outdoor aficionados as a sleeper state, one with giant northern whitetails and a habitat that can create a trophy whitetail rack. 2010 was the first year of an enormously successful antler point restrictions that will, along with intense quality deer management efforts and generous doe bag limits, help balance the buck to doe ratio as well as to change the age structure of the buck population and allow more to reach maturity. With these factors, Minnesota hunting leases will become more sought after for hunters looking to bag a giant northern whitetail that could boast an impressive set of antlers.
Southeast Minnesota has something for each style of hunter. The terrain varies from farmland intermingled with woodlots and creek-bottoms to large tracts of bluffs and hardwood timber several thousand acres in size. Whether you prefer still-hunting through some timber, rattling over a decoy on a field edge, or taking up an all-day stand in the big woods, you will find the area very accommodating.
Minnesota is also one of just a handful of states that holds a firearm season during the peak of the rut and allows bow hunting to continue through the gun season. Nonresident license fees are some of the most affordable in the country at $140 for the either-sex tag and $83 for spring or fall turkey seasons if you'd like to take home one of the plentiful eastern birds.
Escape the lotteries, excessive guide fees, and the "orange army" by investing in a Minnesota hunting lease and lock up your exclusive rights to spend this fall on a piece of the finest whitetail property to be found.
