FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Leasing property for recreational use, such as hunting, can be a source of additional income, but these leases come with more factors than landowners may expect.

When it comes to hunting leases, there are many elements that differ from typical farming leases. Issues such as restriction of certain hunting practices, the use of ATV’s and number of hunters allowed on the property are all examples of considerations that need to be discussed before entering into an agreement.
