One of the easiest ways to find hunting properties for lease is to use a land broker who specializes in hunting leases. You can also network with people in your community through hunting clubs and social activities such as church or work.
Land brokers are often a little more expensive, but using one can reduce the hassle of searching for your own land. You can also try contacting the owners of large plots of land for sale to see if they are willing to lease it out until it sells. Talking to people at outdoor recreation or farm and ranch supply stores can also help you find leads. Some people have also had success by placing a "wanted" classified ad in newspapers, sporting publications or online listings.
