Annual license renewal payments are due by May 15th of each year. All payments not postmarked by May 15th will be assessed a $100 late fee. No exceptions.

Renewals will be sent out within 60-90 days of the end of the current agreement ending.

View the How to Create Your E-License guide on the “Getting Started” page. This guide contains step-by-step instructions (along with screenshots) on how to create and e-sign your license agreement. Note as well, there is a lease wizard that walks you through this process with colored prompts for each step once you accept your reservation.

All payments not postmarked by May 15th will be assessed a $100 late fee. Please reference your lease agreement or invoice if applicable to see if there are any other associated late fees with your renewal.

License prices will be reviewed every year. Because the price of nearly everything increases with inflation over time, you can expect some license price increases as well. Each tract is evaluated separately based on such things as habitat diversity, presence of all-weather roads, presence of open water, adjacency, current market prices for recreational leases, etc.

Harvesting can happen on any lease at any time. The age of the timber and the current market determine when harvesting occurs. It is the hunt club’s responsibility to remove tree stands from areas being harvested. Lessor is not responsible for tree stands damaged during timber harvesting or any other time. Note we try to notify you and provide you with a map in most instances of a harvest, but in some instances the contractor has to move on due to weather conditions, availability, or demand of the mill and you may not have received a large notice or any notice at all. We are a working forest, and this is a chance you take with leasing from us.

Club Related Questions

A hunt club may have any name as long as it is no longer than 35 characters in length and is not profane, embarrassing or offensive to the public. Please Note: If more than one Recreational License Unit (RLU) is owned by the hunt club, the club’s name that is specified when the account is created will apply to all of those Recreational License Units (RLUs).

No. The club name you specified when you created your account applies to all RLUs you hold within the same account. Each RLU is distinguished by a separate number, but all belong to the same club. If you want different club names with different memberships, you will need different accounts, with a different email address for each.

The hunt club contact represents the hunt club and acts as the primary contact. The contact can be any member of the club itself (president, secretary, etc.), but that individual will ultimately be responsible for payment of the license fee. Invoices, dues, and other forms of correspondence for Leases will usually be via e-mail so that person should be someone who has a dependable internet connection and is a frequent user of e-mail. This person is the only person that can reach out for information, maintenance, questions on account.

You may not start hunting until you have received notice that your Lease agreement has been legally executed. The club president/ contact person will be notified by email that the license has been executed. At that time, you can access the property as long as the start of the lease has begun. Note some leases you can pick up prior to the start of the new lease, and you cannot be on the lease until the lease actually starts.

Generally, at any time during the term, licensor shall have the right upon notice to licensees to immediately revoke and terminate the license and the rights and privileges of licensees. Licensees shall have the right upon prior notice to licensor to terminate the licensee. For specific terms, see the license agreement. Depending on the situation, refunds may or may not be granted.

We do offer prorating, but not until after the first of the year in the next calendar year of the lease term. Ex.

Contact customer service if you have questions or would like to inquire about a prorated rate on a property if it qualified for pro-rated rates.
