Can a farm manager sell land rights without the landowner’s consent? Kind of a long story so I’ll try to condense. I’ve been hunting a neighbor/friend’s land (timber) for a couple of years now. Known them for 20 ish years. They are an elderly farming couple (crops and cattle), so we help them whenever they need it. About a year ago, the farmer was talked into (reluctantly) hiring a farm manager. The manager has been making a lot of decisions that the landowner isn’t particularly fond of, but goes along with. But I won’t bore you with all that, and will get right to what the post is about. Apparently, the farm manager called up the landowner and told him not to be letting people on the timber ground to hunt, because the manager has sold the hunting rights to the neighbor across the fence. A neighbor that the landowner isn’t all that thrilled with. The farm manager will be putting up “no hunting” signs along the property. Myself and a few other people hunt the timber every year. A least two of the other guys that hunt it have already asked for permission this year (verbal), and the landowner already gave me permission as well. But he told us we can’t hunt afterall, since the farm manager sold the rights. Anyway, can farm managers really sell rights to land without the landowner’s approval? Seems kinda strange to me, but I don’t know. Not as worried about not being able to hunt there (I have a few other places to hunt) as what the manager has been up to. Concerned the landowner is getting burned by this manager (who’s actual business is not managing, but selling farmland (ag realty)) Thanks for any input.
