    Re: Renting Tillable/Hunting Land

    People lease hunting ground for pheasants in Iowa ... Interesting. I miss the days of stopping by the farm house and asking permission to walk the fence lines and terraces.

    There are still some people that will let you hunt their land by knocking on their door, but it is getting more difficult. I think the days of stopping by farmhouses is passing by as smaller farms have disappeared and landowners sometimes don't even live in the area. It is hard to find private land to hunt as most of it has been tilled and planted due to corn prices. There is also very few fence roes with any cover anymore as well. Most of the farmers that let me hunt farm a lot of land, but only have smaller areas, such as buffer strips, as most of it is crops. I don't think bird hunting will recover anytime soon in Iowa as a lot of habitat has been lost.

    Re: Renting Tillable/Hunting Land

    I assume prices are broken down price per acre/per year, correct?

    Yes, those rates are per acre per year. They have a high, medium, and low quality rental value for each county which is a more accurate way of looking at it.

    Correct. Per year per acre. So if you have 160 acre piece and rent it for $250/acre the farmer owes you $40,000. All of my rents are 1/2 due March 1 and half due November 1.

    Depends on the farm.
