Steve is a lifelong resident of Wisconsin and works for a major automotive parts manufacturer in various management positions. He is a graduate of Marian College with a degree in Operations Management. Steve is married to his wife Heather and has been blessed with 5 children and 6 grandchildren.
Steve grew up on a hog and dairy 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 and grandchildren.
Steve has hunted whitetails in Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Minnesota and Alberta. He has also hunted elk and mule deer in Wyoming, New Mexico, Colorado and Montana…the majority of which were DYI. His biggest hunting adventure was a fly into the Brooks Range in northern Alaska for caribou where a bush plane dropped them off on the shoreline of the Squirrel River and would return 10 days later to pick them up.
When it comes to deer numbers and quality of deer, Wisconsin is hard to beat. Wisconsin ranks number 1 all time for both Boone and Crocket and Pope and Young entries. Buffalo County tends to get all the press, but for the past 10 years (2007 – 2017) per the QDMA, Wisconsin has 8 of the top 12 counties for Boone and Crocket entries.
Steve passionately believes that the future of hunting is dependent on finding ways to engage the younger generation into the outdoors and is one of the primary reasons he decided to join Base Camp Leasing. Bringing together hunters with landowners is a big part of that and from which Steve hopes to bring his years of experience and honest assessment of properties to all parties involved.
