A Sportsman’s lease form (also known as a hunting lease form) is a commonly used form all across the United States. The form is a lease agreement between two parties – the owner of the real estate property and the sportsman.
The form gives the ‘Sportsman’ exclusive rights for hunting on the landlord’s property. The terms and conditions are mentioned clearly in the form, as the sportsman’s lease often tends to lead to disputes. As per this form, ‘hunting’ on the premises includes fishing, trapping & target shooting.
