How much would you charge to let the public walk and drive on your private property?

Also, you pay if it's Hancock, Rayonier, Green Diamond, Inland Empire Paper, etc.

The majority of private timberland in Washington now requires an access fee.

I'm just gonna come out and say it, I'm relatively new to hunting, live in eastern Wa. and had no idea until I joined this message board that timber companies charged money to hunt on their? land.

I put a question mark after the "their" for a reason.

Question. Do the timber companies own this land or do they lease it from the public?

People need to realize that it is PRIVATE PROPERTY.

They should be thankful for the opportunity......if it remains one.
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

Figured after your "rant", that would be your response.
Go buy your own land and never worry about buying access to others.

They own the land, but they do get huge tax breaks.  :twocents:

Don't hunt it.  Simple as that. Look into leasing fees elswhere. Yes, they do get tax breaks but frankly, it's as cheap of access as you will ever find.

I'll never understand why people complain about this.  It's private property. At least they give you the option to access it at all.  Am I missing something? Man...what would it be like if they didn't give access at all?
It's private property.....

And, for better or worse, one benefit is the limited number of permits does help some on the crowding in the more popular areas...

:yeah:

A couple hundred bucks to drive in doesn't seem like a bad deal to me, especially if you look into prices of leasing your own place or buying your own private property. $50 to walk in is a bargain!
