FEATURED HUNTER
ROB HEWES
Rob Hewes has been leasing properties in Ohio and Indiana since 2010.  Rob had trail cam photos of the deer in the photo to the left 2 years ago when he was about 150″ and was 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 years old.  As Rob explains, “I never saw him last year, but ended up shooting him this year.  I think he scores a 160” or better.  He’s a mainframe 11 with a broken point.  I’ll absolutely have him mounted in a semi upright with a left turn.  This was one of my most memorable hunts since I’ve hunted him for 2 years.  My other most memborable hunt was last year in Indiana because my father was with me and he’s 73 years old.  That buck scored in the mid 150’s.”Rob lives in Vermont and usually spends 2 to 3 weeks in the Midwest each year.  Why not hunt Vermont?  “The deer in Vermont don’t even compare to the Midwest.  A 2 1/2 year old in Vermont weights 120 to 150 and is a 4-6 pointer.”

Rob says he’ll be keeping this Knox County, Ohio lease as long as it’s available since he also harvested an 11 pointer 2 years ago.

Thanks for sharing your photos, Rob!

FEATURED PROPERTY: #5872

Manistee County, MI
71 Acres
Max Hunters: 4
$1,800

This is the kind of northern Michigan lease that can produce large deer for the patient hunter.  It is a combination of thick dense pine and young maple.  The high hills create some nice pinch points, shelter from the wind and great well traveled runs.   There are lots of mature trees to hang a stand and access is easy with roads on two sides.   This one is located in the Marilla township just south of Mesick where the surrounding properties are large and privately owned.  There is agriculture near by to keep the deer fed.

Plenty of deer sign were visible during the inspection with lots of deer runs and quite a few scrapes and rubs.  If you haven’t hunted northern Manistee County, it is worth checking this one out.  More Info.

Michigan Leasing Agent:

Jeff McAlary

Jeff was born and raised near the Lake Michigan lake shore where he grew up in a small town where working on local farms was the norm.  He began hunting small game with his father at a very early age and couldn’t wait until he could hunt deer for the first time at age 14. He credits his love of the outdoors to having grown up in a rural community. In the last 34 years, Jeff has hunted all over Michigan; from grouse hunting the western edge of the Upper Peninsula to bow hunting on Drummond Island, and from rifle hunting the Traverse City area to pheasant hunting Lenwee County in the southeast corner of the Lower Peninsula. During his travels, he is always looking for good Michigan land to introduce into the Base Camp leasing program.

Along with chasing whitetail deer, Jeff spends countless hours afield hunting rabbits, grouse, woodcock, pheasants, ducks and geese. He gets the most enjoyment from introducing someone to hunting or taking them to that special hunting spot. Jeff can help you find just the right Michigan hunting lease.

Jeff has been a Michigan police officer for 23 years. He knows how important it is for landowners to receive respect and communication when it comes to their property and how important it is for hunters to have a safe and comfortable place to hunt. When he isn’t working, he can usually be found somewhere in Michigan sitting in a tree, scouting hunting property or following his bird dog Gipper. He currently resides in western Michigan with his wonderful wife Jane and three sons, who all enjoy the outdoors.

If you have questions about finding that perfect piece of property to lease for yourself, Jeff can be reached at jeff@basecampleasing.com.

FEATURED HUNTERS
EVELYN & TERRY WEST
Husband and wife team Evelyn and Terry West both harvested bucks on opening day of Indiana firearms season this year.  They have leased in Warren County, Indiana for 4 years and have always had success.  As Terry stated, “All you have to do is be there and you’ll get something.  We’ve harvested deer every year.  The most memorable  season was 2 years ago when I shot a 180″ with an 11” drop tine, which is rare, and Evelyn got a nice buck as well.  We had them mounted on the same mount.”On the West family bucket list?  “We’d like to bear hunt somewhere, probably out of state for a few days.”

How did Evelyn get interested in hunting?  “She sat with me one day and she was hooked after that.  We literally spend all Friday, Saturday and Sunday on the property during deer season.”

Congratulations to you both!

FEATURED PROPERTY: #6284

Campbell County, VA
200 Acres
Max Hunters: 8
$3,200

This is a completely wooded 200 acre property that is loaded with oaks. The property timber is all mature and connects to the Big Otter River. When inspecting the property, I found several tracks along the oaks flats. The property has two main roads that will provide access about 3/4 way to the river. If hunters choose, they can finish the road to the river for better access for all the property. The property had several well used trails crossing the ridge tops where I found numerous scraps along the road beds.This lease could provide an excellent opportunity for a Virginia giant.   More Info.

FEATURED HUNTER
WILLIAM McCARTNEY

William McCartney took this 173″ Kentucky velvet buck 12 pointer in Coldwell County, Kentucky.  As William explains, “Kentucky is one of the few states you can hunt early enough in to get a velvet, and at that you have only about 5 days. I’ve only taken 2 velvets.  I got him on the second morning of season when the temperature dropped 30 degrees overnight as a result of hurricane Isaac coming through.”William discusses his multiple leases.  “Because I like to hunt season openers, I currently have Base Camp leases in multiple states: Kentucky, Ohio and Illinois.  I have always been able to fill my freezer and put 2 or 3 trophies on my wall since I started leasing 8 years ago.  I am a landscaper, so September through December is the slowest time of year for me.  My schedule does make it tough for turkey hunting though.”

William’s basement is dedicated to animals harvested.  He has 14 deer, a big horn sheep, a hog, and a full body coyote.  On William’s bucket list is a big bull elk, probably from Colorado, and a Mountain Lion from Oregon or Idaho.
YOUR FIRST 3 MUST-DO’S
ON YOUR NEW HUNTING LEASE. 
By Sean Ferbrache
Chief Operating Officer
American Hunting Lease Association
Congratulations to you and your pals.  Securing your own hunting lease is a big step, but one you will be glad you took.  No other arrangement can bring you the safety and quality of hunting private land like a hunting lease.

I don’t want to repeat the same topics I wrote about in the last two articles of this series.  If you want to review those, they can be found here:

1. Let’s Do It.  Choosing the Right Hunting Lease.  September  2015
2. Are You Ready for A Hunting Lease? July 2015

Instead, let’s really take a look at how you can make the very most of your new hunting lease.  Of course, “when” you signed the lease will have an impact on what you can and/or should do on your lease.  Let’s assume your lease was signed, insured and paid for in the early fall. This might limit your options with regard to food plots, but valuable clues are starting to show up that will help guide your strategies.

FEATURED HUNTER
CHRISTOPHER CESSNA
Chris Cessna discusses the story behind the 155” whitetail in the photo. “I’ve been in tree stands with helicopters buzzing me, vehicles driving by, dogs interfering, and in almost every case I’ve been able to kill a deer or have had an opportunity to get a deer.  In the case of this photo, the landowner’s black lab followed me out to the tree stand and took a nap at the base of the tree.  I was not at all happy and thought the deer would smell the dog or the dog would bark.  An hour later on my evening hunt, a buck filtered into the milo field.  It took an hour for the buck to come my way.  The deer came within 30 yards of me when I got him.  When I came down from the tree stand, the dog was still curled up at the base of the tree.  When a situation like this arises, I have to remind myself that this will not affect my hunt, and it usually doesn’t.”
Chris has had numerous  Base Camp leases over the years from Kansas to Ohio, which is where he is originally from.  He began hunting in 1975 as a middle schooler hunting rabbits, pheasants, and grouse on a friend’s farm and he’s been hooked ever since.  When he was growing up, deer hunting in Ohio was not what it is today, so they would go to Pennsylvania.  As he explains, “Ohio deer hunting now is phenomenal.  I attribute the change to the Division of Wildlife, which now does a better job of managing the deer population than they did years ago.  I think they recognize that it pays of financially for them.”

Chris has had an interesting career path.  As an attorney in private practice for the last 13 years, he sometimes gets involved in hunting related cases, some with national exposure.  “I’ve won cases in Nebraska, Kansas and Utah where ethical hunters who inadvertently purchased the wrong tag had to forfeit their game.  In one case, I got a B & C deer back for him.”

Chris explains his career path, “I have a degree in Natural Resource Management.  As a child, I saw 2 game wardens helping a hunter track a wounded deer.  I was amazed at all the tricks they knew for finding the deer.  I told Dad that I wanted to be a game warden.  I started out at Ohio State and finished my degree at Colorado State.  I worked as a Federal Park Ranger for the US National Park Service for 10 years.  In my role, I often worked with the US Attorney’s office on drug related cases.  I gained respect for prosecuting attorneys and decided to go back to get my law degree.  After graduating from the University Of Denver College Of Law, I worked for the D.A.’s office before going into private practice as a defense attorney.  The best part of my job is now having time to hunt! “

His most memorable hunt…taking his 2 daughter’s out to hunt when they were 6 and 8 and watching them get their first doe. .. “of course, I had to pull the trigger, but their enthusiasm was priceless”.

Well done, Chris!

Lincoln County, OK
100 Acres
Max Hunters: 4
$3000

Bow hunter’s dream is how I would describe this 100 acres of brushy CRP, thick timber, hay meadows and wetlands that run along the river.  This place really should hunt great, with all the pinch points, funnels and field edges. I’m sure the deer are really liking all the great bedding areas with plenty of water to drink and keep cool. Saw lots of deer sign the day of inspection and there should be plenty turkeys in the area.

As an added bonus, the waterfowl hunting should be excellent on this property as well.

Less than an hour from Oklahoma City & Tulsa, this will make a neat lease for a small group of guys.

Landowner’s house is on the property and all hunters must be cautious and safe. More Info.

Southern Indiana
Leasing Agent:

Andy Guernsey

Andy Guernsey has lived in Clark County, Indiana his entire life.  Andy has hunted his whole life in the southern Indiana area and knows how to evaluate a property’s hunting potential. He graduated from Ivy-Tech University in 2007 and is currently working for his father’s company, Guernsey Built Homes. He and his wife enjoy spending time in the woods together as much as they can hunting deer, turkey, squirrel, dove, quail, and coyote. He really enjoys taking kids hunting and helping them get their first deer or turkey. Andy killed his first deer with a bow at the age of 11 and his first turkey at 14.

To anyone interested in leasing hunting land in Indiana, this is one of the best kept secrets in hunting. Andy will always give an honest evaluation of each property that he inspects. The deer and turkey numbers are at an all time high, and the quality of the animals is as good or better than most other states. Besides being a great place to hunt, Indiana’s out of state licenses are also much cheaper than many of the surrounding states.

Please call him with any questions that you might have about  leasing one of our properties. Feel free to contact him by phone at (502) 643-7671 or email at andy@basecampleasing.com.

FEATURED HUNTER
REXTON GREY
Our featured hunter is Rexton Grey, who grew up hunting in Mississippi, and now resides and has a hunting lease in Tennessee.  He currently leases a parcel of wooded land amongst a large section of woods in Meigs County.   In the two years he’s been using Base Camp Leasing, he’s killed multiple deer and a few turkeys.
Rexton explains how he got the buck featured in the above photo:  “I had taken off the whole first week of November hoping to catch the rut just right. As I got to my stand, I climbed up and had barely gotten my bow hung on the tree before I started hearing deer in the darkness.  I literally couldn’t wait for the sun to come up so I could see what was in front of me. When the sun finally came up, I realized I had a doe and her two yearlings feeding on acorns 35 yards in front of me.  They stayed for about 30 minutes, then walked off to my left.   As soon as they got out of sight, I heard a lot of racket and the three deer darted back across in front of me, followed by two additional doe.  As I stood there hoping not to get spotted, I began hearing long bellowing grunts to my left.  Suddenly there he was, heading for my shooting lane at about 20 yards perfectly broadside.  It was textbook, just like you see on the outdoor channel. I drew my bow back as he walked behind a perfectly placed tree; I waited for him to emerge from the other side.  He walked out and I stopped him with a quiet grunt.  I placed the top pin a little low behind his shoulder anticipating him to duck at the sound of the string. I slowly squeezed off the shot with my release trigger and watched the arrow fly perfectly into where my pin was aiming.  It was a perfect heart shot.  He ran about 35 yards and stopped.  I waited in anticipation for him to fall.  He walked over a small bluff and disappeared.  I waited about a half hour while texting all of my friends telling them what had just happened. I walked over and found him exactly where I thought he would be. Turns out I had multiple pictures of this buck on my trail cameras, which made the whole hunt even cooler.”

Well done, Rexton!

Base Camp Leasing has 700 acres available for immediate lease in Redfield, NY-Tug Hill Region-open for hunting- first time available to the public. This property is a big woods with the best trails I have inspected. They would support ATVs and/or side by side UTV vehicles.  Deer, black bear and turkey can be found on this property. The trails are wide and professionally maintained each year. The woods are beautiful, primarily made up of maple, ash, birch, cherry and a few pine. The terrain is a good mixture from flat to some knolls. It was easy walking. There was evidence of old buck rubs and tracks throughout the property. There is a beautiful deer pond located almost in the center of the property with a large Adirondack lean-to, fire-pit and views that would be ideal for camping and staging. The access is from the blacktop located in the northwest corner. The south border is Stony Brook Creek that runs pretty much east and west and it has a beautiful set of waterfalls. There is a beautiful clearing about .3 of a mile on the main access trail that would make a beautiful camping spot. If you like big woods that are not steep mountains or big hills, then you will love this property!  More Info.

LET’S DO IT.  CHOOSING
THE RIGHT HUNTING LEASE.   

By Sean Ferbrache COO.,
American Hunting Lease Association

From your first thoughts of a hunting lease to the second you put an arrow or bullet through his lungs, this series will guide you through the entire process.  The following is the second in a five part series of informative articles written for hunters of all experience levels and passions.

_______________________________________________________________

You have seen the light! …you have addressed your hunting club’s expectations and the finances and are ready to begin wading through the infinite amount of information to find the right lease?

Like any “search” these days, most of us turn to our phone, tablet or laptop and begin our search on Google. I think Google (internet in general) is a pretty solid place to start when looking for a hunting lease as well. The vast majority of hunting lease companies have some type of website that lists their available properties. Unfortunately, the method that Google uses to list and rank these sites can be very complicated and most hunting lease sites just won’t rank in a simple search.  The AHLA helps with that by listing those companies that are AHLA Certified Associates on our own site at ahuntinglease.org. Companies that display the AHLA Certified Associate logo on their home page have agreed to a standard of best business practices and can be trusted partner in your search for the right property. Read more.

FEATURED HUNTER
RICK RONDOMANSKI

The buck in the photo to the left is a 151” from Rick Rondomanski’s Illinois BCL lease.  As Rick describes the hunt, “I could not have asked for a more perfect scenario.  The deer read the script.  I leased the property on October 4th and Illinois archery had already started.  My first day of hunting was on November 16th and I got him November 17th.  I had seen a decent 8 point and let him go; I was going for the 150’s.  I had 3 on camera and was going for 1 of the 3.  I used a doe heat scent to get his attention.  He looked right at the scent stick and away from me and I got him from 23 yards. This is my largest bow kill to date in Pike County, Illinois.”

Rick Rondomanski’s most memorable hunt was hunting with his 3 cousins in Missouri.  Because he’s a fire fighter, he has a schedule of 1 day on, 2 days off, which allows him to scout his lease more often than his hunting buddies.  As Rick tells the story, “I enjoy setting up other people on deer.  I had done all the scouting already and I knew where the deer were moving.  On the first day of rifle season, I put my 3 cousins in stands and told them not to worry.  By 7:15 a.m., three bucks were on the ground.  The irony is that I set them up and the only one without a buck on the ground was me!”

On Rick’s bucket list is an archery elk in New Mexico or Montana.   One of Rick’s goals was to get a mule deer in Arizona this year on a spot & stalk.  After 3 hours of stalking, Rick just missed over the mule deer’s back at 52 yards.  He hopes to return this year for another go at it.

Well done Rick, and thanks for submitting a photo to the Base Camp Leasing photo contest.

Here’s your chance to hunt one of the best counties in Tennessee with 37 bucks harvested with 11pts or more last season. Nice mixture of fields and hardwoods. Bottom land edges a 1000 acre lake. Previous neighbors were a timber company property planted in pines, so they should come to you for food. This farm underwent a timber harvest in 2014, so expect good bedding and plenty of browse. Saw deer and plenty of sign during inspection. Turkey and other game present as well. Previous hunting club had a 4pt on one side minimum restriction and landowner has seen trail cam photos of a “monster.” Reedy Creek feeds through the bottom and there is a swamp area between the road and the lake. Landowner lives on the property. Camping is ok and electric could be available at your cost. Camp site to be determined between you and landowner. ATV use ok, and food plots in designated areas working with farmer who cuts the hay.  More info.

ARE YOU READY FOR A HUNTING LEASE?

By Sean Ferbrache COO.,
American Hunting Lease Association

The article that follows is the first in a five part series of informative articles written for hunters of all experience levels and expectations.

From your first thought of a hunting lease to the moment you send an arrow or bullet in his direction, this series will guide you through the entire process of finding, securing and enjoying a quality hunting lease.
___________________________________________

I have a mantra. When executed properly, the ‘hunting lease’ works for everyone involved.

Ok, yes it’s my job to say that. I get it.

But, it’s true.  When hunters and landowners share expectations and there are fundamental levels of both courtesy and stewardship, the hunting lease arrangement delivers the goods. No other arrangement provides hunters with access to quality wildlife habitat for a tiny fraction of what it would cost to purchase land of their own.

Further proof, most hunting leases are written for one full year. That means you get full access to your lease/property all year long. That makes a lot more sense than spending $5,000 to hunt with an outfitter for 5 days.  You have the opportunity to hang cameras, plant food plots, scout the pre-season, shed hunt and even hunt other game.

But, is a hunting lease right for you?  It really comes down to two topics. Money and expectations.Read more.

Tennessee Leasing Agent:

Daryl Houston

Daryl Houston is the Tennessee Leasing Agent for Base Camp Leasing. Daryl was born and raised in Tennessee and comes from a family of hunters and fishermen dating back to his grandfather. Introduced to small game hunting at an early age with his father, he progressed to whitetails at age 14 when a neighbor offered to take him deer hunting. The initial experience led to a lifetime passion of chasing the elusive animal, but has also led him to pursue ducks, turkey, and just about every other animal or bird that walks and flies. Daryl has taken nearly 200 whitetails in his lifetime with several mature bucks to his credit. He has experience hunting both public WMA and privately owned ground, both in Tennessee and Kentucky including Ft. Campbell and Ft. Knox. His ability to identify prime whitetail ground has been proven.

A career Firefighter/Paramedic of 28 years with the Nashville Fire Department has given him the advantage of free time when off duty to be in the timber. You can rest assured that his listings provide a lot of detail on the property.  He believes his job is to paint you a picture in his assessment of your Tennessee Hunting Lease, and so you practically know your property even before you plant your foot on it the first time.

Since 2008, when the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency implemented a 3 buck per season limit, Tennessee has seen a rise in the numbers of mature deer harvested each year. Many hunters know what it takes to manage their property to grow and hold big bucks; they just need a place to do it. With the decreases in hunting opportunities on private land in the last few years, and increases in many cases on public ground, increasing the numbers of Tennessee land for lease is Daryl’s top priority!

Darryl has been blessed to share his passion with his children and grandchildren. Daryl and his family live in the Coopertown area of Robertson County outside of Nashville. He is a 2013 graduate of Volunteer State Community College with an AAS in EMT-Paramedic.

Daryl is available any time to answer your questions. He can be reached at (615) 260-4250 or by email at daryl@basecampleasing.com.

NATHAN STONER
Nathan Stoner was another one of our BCL photo contest finalists.  Nathan discusses his BCL lease: “It’s been interesting having my first hunting lease.  I’ve never been able to get a photo of a deer and be able to specifically hunt that deer.  That’s something that Base Camp Leasing’s program has allowed me to do.”
“We got the lease in August, set up trail cams and got tons of pictures.  There were 2 bucks that my buddy and I were going after.  We didn’t have any daylight pictures of either of them.  We had set up a new stand in a bean field and saw one of them the next night right before dark.  When I was up in the stand, I happened  to look down and there he was.  I did not even see him come in.  I had a split second to decide.  I had the perfect angle to shoot him and he went only 30 yeards before we found him.  He’s an 8 pointer in the 140’s.  I’ll be getting the deer as a head mount, but I’m still waiting to get it back from the taxidermist.”
Nathan’s love for hunting started when he was 12 years old.  A buddy’s father took the boys pheasant hunting.   Shortly thereafter he started deer hunting, getting his first bow at age 14.  At age 16, he got a bow tag and has been bow hunting ever since.  Nathan has hunted in southern Iowa his whole life and currently hunts in Davis County, Iowa.   Until he purchases his own hunting land, he likes the idea of leasing since the price is right and he can manage the land.

On Nathan’s bucket list is a bigger and better buck.  He’s taken a Boone & Crockett  172”;   The new goal is to get one at least 200”.   As Nathan states, “There’s something about whitetails that I’m enamored with.  I’m crazy about chasing them.  I’m not interested in big game.”

Nathan’s most memorable hunts include spending time with his wife hunting and camping.  “With 2 young kids, we don’t get a lot of time together.  We spent 3 days together during muzzle loader season.  She got into muzzle loader a couple years ago.  She hasn’t gotten a deer yet, but she’s had opportunities.”

Well done Nathan!

Covert Scouting Cameras

Wonder how to get good trail cam shots? Covert Scouting Cameras, Inc. has a few recommended tricks and tips to use when setting up cameras.  

Tricks and Tips

  • For best results, mount the camera approximately 4 feet off the ground facing straight forward and as level as possible.
  • To enhance the flash, we recommend positioning the camera in an area with a backdrop to reflect the maximum amount of light.  For instance, place the camera 20-30’ from a field edge facing the woods.  For the inside of timber, positioning the camera facing a thicket approximately 20-30’ away.
  • Try to set the camera up so it’s not facing directly into the sun either in the morning or the evening when game movement is at its peak.  It is optimal to face the camera toward the north or the south to avoid the rising and setting of the sun.
  • Use the Covert Tree60 mounting system to mount the camera up higher pointing down on them for a unique, better look.  This works great when you don’t have a tree nearby.
  • Make sure there’s no tall weeds or limbs directly in front of the camera so you don’t get a thousand pictures of moving grass!

    For setup videos and other useful tips, please visit us at www.covertscoutingcameras.com.  As always, we’re here providing premium products, with premium support.

Video or Still Images?

Many people wonder if they should run their cameras on video.  If you are using a camera with HD features, then videos are always a great option.

Four Turkey Hunting Tips to Get Your Gobbler

By Cole Daniels

It was one of the toughest turkey hunts I’ve ever had and it was about to come to an abrupt end. A gobbler sporting an eight inch beard strutted up the logging road with love on his mind. My single hen decoy appeared to be just what the doctor ordered for this guy. But unbeknownst to him, today’s prescription was a screaming hot load of #5’s. At five yards from the decoy, he decided something wasn’t right. But it was too late for him. The safety was off and with a tap of the trigger, it was lights out for this last minute gobbler. I validated the tag two hours before the close of my season. Some hunts are just more difficult than others, but learning from the experience is what makes us better hunters. Here are a handful of some of my hard learned lessons.  Read more.
FEATURED HUNTER
BURT PERRY
Perry is our featured hunter this month.  Burt is active duty Air Force stationed at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio and has been in the Military Police for 12 years.  Burt’s photo rounds out the top 3 vote getting photos from our Base Camp Leasing photo contest; the other two were featured in previous newsletters.

Being stationed at Wright Patterson enables Burt to be at his Wayne County, Indiana hunting lease within an hour, which is where he got this eleven point  150” buck.  Burt has recently renewed his lease for the third year and has harvested nice bucks each year.  As Burt explains, “Having seen and followed the 150” on trail cam, I made it my goal for the season to get this guy.  I passed up about 20 bucks throughout hunting season because he was the biggest one on the property.   I got one chance to get him during archery season, but shot under him and missed him.  On the second to last night of shotgun season, I saw him again on trail cam, so that area of the woods was my focus. 150 is the largest buck that I’ve taken.”

Additional highlights of Burt’s hunting career?  Taking two caribou and a black bear while stationed in Alaska.  Getting the bear was unexpected.  “My wife and I were hiking and saw three bears off in the distance, so we turned to walk in a different direction.  Two of the bears ran off when they saw us, but the third one was curious and came towards us.  I was carrying my hip revolver and he charged me.  I had a black bear permit, but certainly didn’t expect to get one under these circumstances.”

Burt is originally from Pennsylvania, so he would normally hunt farms back home, but it’s too far of a drive from where he lives now.  “I grew up in Pennsylvania hunting with my father from the time I was 10.  We’d hunt in Pennsylvania as well as out west.  While living in Alaska, he would visit me and we’d hunt together.  We plan on hunting spring gobbler next week.”

Thanks for sharing your hunting photos, Burt, and thank you for your military service!

Featured Property #5994

Iowa County, Wisconsin
117 acres
Max Hunters: 5
$4,250

This farm should hunt much bigger than the 117 acres listed.  The timber is primarily hard woods including a lot of white oak and a scattering of apple trees.  There is a very nice trail system throughout the property which will make for easy and quiet access into your stand locations as well as retrieval of game.  The amount of deer sign seen during my inspection was quite impressive.  I walked the entire perimeter of the property and did not see any deer stands on the boundaries of neighboring properties.  Landowner did say that some of the neighbors do hunt, but it appears they certainly do not do so on property lines.  There are row crops in the valley with the timbered ground surrounding it on 3 sides which should allow for numerous stand locations.

I would anticipate the turkey hunting to be excellent so make sure to get your spring tag and do some shed hunting while you are there trying to call in a big long beard.  The landowner does not live on the property but has a tenant living in the farm house to watch over things while you are not there.  All legal game are yours to hunt along with respectful use of ATV for hunting related activities.  Landowner is also okay with camping with his permission on where and when.  Food plots are also okay with his permission as to where and what.  More info.
Introducing Kansas
Leasing Agent:

Brandon Cutler

Brandon is blessed by living in a state with everything a hunter could want – Kansas.  From mule deer, an occasional elk and pheasant in the west, to quail in the east, and monster whitetail and turkey statewide, there is something for everyone in Kansas. Having the opportunity to hunt in states from Montana all the way down to Georgia, he still feels there is nowhere like home.

He grew up in Topeka, but his heart was on the family farm in southeast Kansas. This is where he first started hunting cottontail rabbits with his BB gun and then with his bow. As he got older he got infected with buck fever and this has turned into his true passion. While being blessed by having some private land to hunt and fish on, he understands leasing will have a huge impact on the future, as he himself doesn’t live close enough to these properties to enjoy them as much as he would like. He enjoys meeting people and gets satisfaction from bridging the gap between hunter and landowner to help more people enjoy the great outdoors like he does.

Brandon is a lifelong resident of Kansas, except for a short stint in Branson, MO. He is married with two young children and he can’t wait until the day they are old enough to sit in a blind with. He graduated from Kansas State University with a degree in Turf Management. After working on several golf courses and baseball stadiums, he has settled down in Wichita as the Assistant Director of Facilities/ Field Manager for Wichita State University Baseball.

Please contact Brandon with any questions that you might have about leasing one of our hunting properties.  He can be reached by phone at (316) 312-9825 or by email atBrandon@basecampleasing.com.

THE TIME TO FEED DEER MINERAL IS NOW
by Tracy Breen

It appears that spring has finally sprung.  It is time to get the bow out and start shooting a few arrows.  It is time to start preparing food plots, to plant the garden, spruce up the yard … the list goes on and on.  It is easy to see why when spring arrives, many of us forget to put out deer mineral.  Many hunters think summer and fall are the best times to put out mineral, but the best time to dump mineral on the ground is soon after the snow melts.

According to Dave Wheeler from Lucky Buck Mineral, the best time to put out mineral is when antlers start growing and the grass starts turning green.  “When antlers start to grow, a buck also has a strong desire to consume mineral,” Wheeler said.  This is the perfect time to take advantage of one of the best tools you have to make an impact on antler size.  Because their diet is relatively low in moisture just prior to green up, there is a low desire for minerals.  At green up, all the deer eat new growth grass which can be almost 90% water.  This can change literally overnight.  To eat a total diet of that much moisture can flush the sodium and electrolytes right out of the system. If a mineral is formulated correctly, you can take advantage of this because the deer will crave the mineral and intake will increase about sixfold.  If the formulation is correct, the antlers will get what they need to put on additional growth “by accident.”  Some of the minerals, like selenium, are not stored well in the body tissue and therefore need to be consumed at the same time they are needed for antler growth to be most effective.  The will benefit as well during birth and lactation.

One reason many hunters don’t put out mineral in the spring is because they simply forget.  Wheeler has a little trick to help you remember to put out Lucky Buck.  “I have a memory association trick I want you to use.  Take a bucket of mineral and set it on the seat of your lawn mower.  Do not mow your lawn for the first time until you dump the bucket out.  Don’t let the mineral run out until at least mid-July.  After that, maintain the site by putting a part of a bucket in front of your trail camera every couple months.”

There are many benefits that come from putting mineral out in the spring. You are helping the bucks and does and you can put out a trail camera and take an inventory of the bucks in your area.  If you hunt near your mineral sight in the fall, starting the mineral sight in the spring gives the deer plenty of time to get used to using the area without any interference from man. The benefits of putting mineral out in the spring are many so get started now.

FEATURED HUNTER
KEN HILL
Ken Hill has been hunting for 39 years, since he was a 12 year old in Pennsylvania.  For Ken and his sons, hunting is a family tradition.  “I was raised where hunting was to put food on the table:  deer, pheasant, rabbits, turkey, ground hogs, and more.  I started trapping early on as well.”  Ken’s most memorable hunt, “When my oldest son shot his first buck at age 10.  My other 2 sons have harvested bucks as well, but the first one stands out in my mind.”
Ken entered the photo of his two sons in the Base Camp Leasing photo contest and made the top 10 finalists.

Ken currently hunts his own farm in Pennsylvania and his Base Camp Lease 6 hours away in Ohio.  He got the Ohio lease because youth season is longer and he can hunt on Sundays.  Plus, Ken believes there are better quality bucks in Ohio.  This is the Hill family’s seventh year on the same lease.  As Ken explains, “I could have considered others, but his one is easy for my father to hunt at age 75.”

On Ken’s bucket list: an elk out west, probably Colorado or Montana. As far as his sons’ bucket lists:  larger whitetail.

Here’s Ken’s recap of the 2010 photo of Ken and his eight point:  “We set out numerous trail cameras on our Ohio lease during the summer to try and gauge what type bucks we have roaming around. We then set up a hit list of potential shooter bucks. This 4 ½ year old buck was near the top of the hit list, even though it was only a 130” class eight point. My son and I had found his shed in the spring of 2009, the first year we had the lease, but never saw him the entire season. In 2010 I only saw him twice during the entire archery and regular gun season. Ohio had the extended gun season weekend in late December that year.  I asked my oldest son if he wanted to go out to the lease and hunt on the last day.  So we left our place in PA at midnight and got to the farm at 6 a.m., just in time to get to the stand.  We did not see much activity and broke for lunch and a short nap. We headed out at 2 p.m. for the evening hunt and the big eight came by with 4 does. My 12 gauge slug gun and Hornady SST bullets did their job.  The drag to get him out of the woods was pretty easy and we had him back at the local deer check station by 4:30pm. We got back to our place in PA at 11:00pm. All in all, not bad for a 23 hour excursion to get a buck that I specifically went after.”

Introducing Wisconsin
Leasing Agent:

Steve Ebert
Steve Ebert grew up on a dairy and hog farm, but had a father who loved the outdoors and always found time to share that with his children. This passion for the outdoors was certainly passed down to Steve, who in turn has found great joy doing the same with his children.  Steve lives in central Wisconsin and has worked for a major automotive parts manufacturer in various management positions for 30 years. He is a graduate of Marian College with a degree in Operations Management.

Steve has hunted whitetails in Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Minnesota and Alberta over the past 35 years. He currently has leases in both Wisconsin and Minnesota. He has also hunted elk and mule deer in Wyoming, New Mexico, Colorado and Montana, and caribou in Alaska, all DIY. Prior to joining Base Camp as the Leasing Agent for Wisconsin, Steve scouted thousands of acres on his own and truly enjoys that aspect of the hunt almost as much as the hunt itself.

When Steve first started hunting whitetails in Wisconsin more than 35 years ago, bragging rights were not typically how big a buck you shot, but how many you got. On the rare occasion someone actually got a 2 ½ year old buck, they were the talk of the town. Thanks to QDM and a younger generation of hunters wanting the challenge of harvesting a mature whitetail, the quality and age structure has improved dramatically, especially over the past 15 years. Buffalo County tends to get all the press, but there are plenty of quality whitetails present throughout the state and getting better every year.

Steve passionately believes that the future of hunting is dependent on finding ways to engage the younger generation, which is one of the primary reasons he decided to join Base Camp Leasing as the Wisconsin Leasing Agent. Bringing together hunters with landowners is a big part of that and from which Steve hopes to bring his years of experience and honest assessments of properties to all parties involved. Steve can be reached at any time to answer your questions about a Wisconsin hunting lease at (715) 281-8914.

PHOTO CONTEST WINNER
Ty Chatell 

“Michigan Fall Turkey”
Father and son, Ty and Tyler Chatell,  were in an elevated box blind.  Both had their bows out and had an agreement in place:  If deer come in, it’s dad’s shot; if turkeys come in, it’s son’s shot.  As Ty explains, “I saw a turkey slide off the roost and I knew that they would wander through our deer hunting spot.  We had consistently seen flocks of 20 to 30 on the trail cam.  It was Tyler’s shot and he got it from 20 yards out.   Before we went out, I showed Tyler where to aim by showing him a picture of a turkey in a magazine.  We have a 3D deer target at home that he practices on, but we don’t have a turkey target.”  According to Ty, “The turkey even made the Michigan record book.  Beard & spur added together must total over 8” and Tyler’s was 13 13/16 inches.  We plan on mounting the tail and beard on a plaque.“

This is the first year Ty’s eight year old son has hunted.  Not only did Tyler get a turkey, but two weeks earlier he got a 6 point buck with a cross bow from 20 yards out. As far as the 6 point that Tyler got this year, he wants a European mount with orange dipped camouflage skull.

Tyler got his license as part of the Michigan Mentored Youth Hunting Program, which is designed to introduce youth under the age of 10 to hunting and fishing.   By eliminating the minimum hunting age in Michigan, the Mentored Youth Hunting program lets parents determine if and when their child is ready to hunt.

Ty Chatell has had his Michigan Base Camp Lease since 2004.  Not only does he have a great landowner who lives within a mile of the property, but the lease is only 15 minutes from where he lives.  Prior to his Base Camp lease, he hunted with friends when and wherever he could.

On Ty’s bucket list is getting a Bison in South Dakota and for his daughter to get her first deer.  She’s a little embarrassed that her younger brother got a deer and a turkey his first year hunting.

Way to go Ty and Tyler Chatell!

Introducing Nebraska Leasing Agent:
Mark Rohlfing
As a Midwest native, Mark Rohlfing grew up hunting upland birds on his grandparent’s farm near Wisner, NE. While attending high school in Minnesota, big game hunting opportunities caught Mark’s attention. It was then he began bow-hunting whitetails and has not looked back.

Mark currently resides with his wife Ann and daughter Hannah in Tyndall, SD. He obtained a M.S degree in 2004 from South Dakota State University studying Wildlife Management. Mark currently works for the Natural Resources Conservation Service helping landowners develop conservation plans. This often involves studying aerial photos and utilizing cost-share programs to establish wildlife habitat.

“In my spare time I truly enjoy scouting new properties. Don’t kid yourself, it’s all about location. Consistent success comes from controlling hunting pressure and that is what a lease can do for you. Hunters who utilize Base Camp Leasing know they will have an undisturbed place to hunt for years to come. Nebraska is a great place to obtain a lease because non-resident tags are readily available”, says Mark.

Mark will inspect properties as if he were going to hunt them himself. He will prepare aerial photos, take pictures of game sign, and recommend potential stand or blind sites if desired. Mark looks forward to helping hunters obtain a great hunting spot.  Please contact Mark to answer questions you may have about leasing one of our Nebraska properties. Mark can be reached at (605) 690-2753 or by email at mark@basecampleasing.com.
