Q: Can a landowner who leases our his land hunt on his own place or can the tenant stop all hunting on the land?
Three sections of land in Nebraska, leased to neighbor, Land owner wants to hunt on his own land, and have friends hunt deer on it too. Yet lessee says NO. Is this possible?
A: The rights of a tenant and landlord are generally governed by the landlord-tenant agreement (or lease). Unless the lease states otherwise, the landlord generally surrenders the property to the tenant for the tenant's purposes. Thus, a landlord can't generally enter the leasehold for personal profit (which would likely include hunting animals on the land) but it is all dependent on the specific wording of the lease.
