Q. I am a member but get error messages that my email is not in the database.
A. Your membership may have expired or your e-mail address became unreachable. Contact us and we will check it.
Q. What is different on this new upgraded web site?
A. The concepts of privacy, free listings, and contacting the listing party via e-mail remain unchanged. That said, everything is new in v4.0.
Q. I have several addresses, do you have recommendations?
A. If you have more than one e-mail address, use the most reliable one. After joining, your listing(s) may be deleted if your mail is returned to us with fatal errors. New efforts are being made to prevent members from being contacted from bad addresses. To ensure the highest quality web site, e-mail addresses that do not work properly will not be entered nor left in Texas Hunting Lease.com.
Q. I saw a listing and would like more information. If I contact Webmaster can you give me information?
A. All the information we have is available immediately to you by starting at the home page and following the trail to search the way you want to, selecting a listing and contacting the person who entered the listing, not Texas Hunting Lease.com. You deal directly with the person who entered the listing. Each listing shows everything we have except contact information and you get that by clicking on contact. We introduce you then back away.
Q. I received an e-mail telling me we have a match. If I e-mail you at webmaster can you tell me about the lease or hunter?
A. We don't have a clue because our system is automated. We wish we had the time to review all the e-mail the auto responder sends. Unlike a book, you get 24hr/7day service within minutes. Also the information in our database is up to the minute because you enter and delete your own information directly to the database. If you received e-mail that said Congratulations!, we have a match, then please contact the other party for information.
Q. How does Search and Contact work?
A. Basic membership is free and easy, just go to hunter, landowner or guide and see the instructions after "Welcome...." We will verify your email address is reachable then you enter a free listing showing your hunting wishes or offerings. Then you may search thousands of different ways and see a list of hunters, landowners or guides that match what you want. Hunters may search for many types of hunts and leases. Landowners and Guides may search for hunters that are looking for leases that fit their criteria. When you find a listing you wnat to inquire about just hit "Contact" if you are a Standard or Premium member and the automated system sends email indicating the listed property/hunter information. Basic members can view the listings free but need to upgrade to a Standard or a Premium membership at Maintain Your Data to contact and inquire for more information. It is up to each of the two parties to email each other, get additional information, and make an agreement. No names, telephone numbers, addresses, fax numbers or e-mail addresses are posted online.
A. Hunters, you may be surprised at the
number of landowners offering
guided, semi guided and and package hunts due to some bad lease experiences.
Landowners, the same procedure works for you too. Many hunters have
time and money constraints that make shorter terms more attractive.
Texas Hunting Lease.com is designed to let you set your own listing and search criteria.
To view the shortest list, select only one place in each of game, location,
acreage, and type of hunt
To view everything (you computer may not be able to handle this), check ALL of the game, ANY in each region, ANY acres and multiple select every type of hunt simultaneously. Be sure to give this time to load onto your screen as the list may be very long especially if you are searching for hunters.
Naturally, you may also select as many or as few as you like.
Q. If I have entered a listing do I still need to search?
A. We encourage you to continue to search frequently to see if a new listing matches your criteria. Hint: You also may want to expand your search by checking several items at once. See the preceding question. Better hint: Become a premium service member to get automatic e-mail notification within minutes after a new listing comes close to matching your needs. One listing is shown on each e-mail you receive. Only the premium member who has the listing gets notified.
Q. I am a hunter. Why has no one has contacted me about my listing?
A. Some of the landowners and guides are inundated with email from hunters. They have difficulty answering the e-mail much less have time to search and contact hunters. Hunters, don't just sit back and wait to be contacted. Search the existing listings and contact them. If you want to be among the first to know about new hunting places check out the premium service.
Q. I have a billing question on my credit card.
A. Please give us time to reply to your e-mail addressed to Customer Support. Be sure to include your transaction number and e-mail address used when you became a premium service member. Do NOT send us credit card numbers over e-mail as it is not secure. However, the PayPal page is secure.
