for sake of conversation why not lease? You said it yourself outfitters getting leases for super cheap. I was hooked at " Suoer Cheap" and needed to know more... i am far from a rich man and only been able to Primarily hunt Public land. but if its super cheap why not? Im confused now? Do Outfitters really get it for super cheap or were you ranting / venting? If you were just venting your dislike for Outfitters without facts i apoligize i asked.
Good Luck Hunting and God Bless....
He doesn't want leasing because soon all ground will be leased up and everyone will be having to pay.. We live in a place where good fashion door knocking will get you some great private properties you can hunt for free just takes a little bit of work a few months before the season.
