Wednesday, 20 March 2019 00:00:00 EST Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST steve@basecampleasing.com 60 http://www.basecampleasing.com/favicon.ico <![CDATA[Base Camp Leasing ]]> Putnam County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8536/Putnam-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html If your looking for a fantastic farm, less than a mile from Iowa, look no further! This 80 acres in Putnam County will be just the ticket when the rut kicks in and the deer are running everywhere. Landowner lives on the north side of the property and keeps a good eye on things. If the landowner doesn't do it first, there is a great place by the pond & tower blind to plant a food plot. Putnam county is very desirable and successful during the deer season, every year... Possible livestock on the property, but the SE corner is all fenced off so the sweet spot of this property is always calm and quite. Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8536 Nemaha County Kansas Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8543/Nemaha-County-Kansas-Hunting-Lease.html If you know anything about deer hunting in Kansas, you know that Nemaha County is one of the best counties for trophy whitetail bucks! This farm looks like it should continue that trend. Located just minutes from Seneca, this lease has a little bit of everything. Crops are planted in the south fields and along the creek. The north and southwest part are CRP!!! Cattle will graze in the middle field during the summer. The trees in the pasture have been cut down. The creek running across the property has some very deep and steep banks. This should help create some more secluded hiding spots for those weary whitetails. There were several very nice rubs in the area I managed to look at on a frigid February day. Deer unit 9. Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8543 Wabaunsee County Kansas Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5137/Wabaunsee-County-Kansas-Hunting-Lease.html Who is looking for a little adventure? This one should provide plenty of that. In fact, an ATV is highly suggested for this property. This is another very secluded Kansas Fllint Hills property, and is totally landlocked. A nice, spring fed creek winds through the thick timber on the north side of the property. The remainder of the property is in grass. A powerline disects the property north to south. Upon inspection, I kicked up at least six deer, and around 50 turkeys which I was able to get a couple of good pictures of in flight like a covey of quail!. Access is through two gates, across a small creek and a feed lot. This lease runs Sept. 1- Feb. 1., and cattle are on the property part of the year. FEEDERS and tent camping OK. Deer unit 14. Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5137 Greer County Oklahoma Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5404/Greer-County-Oklahoma-Hunting-Lease.html SW Oklahoma deer hunting at its finest. 160 acres of brush and cover. Property sits in a great location. According to the landowner the deer are thick in this area. Landowner prefers all hunters be over the age of 18 Possibility of cattle at some time or another Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5404 Hancock County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7017/Hancock-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html Here’s a great farm being offered for lease in Hancock County. The farm is made up of timber, row crops, bedding, and water; everything you need to grow and hold big bucks. It also has some thick underbrush that will make for great cover for those bruisers cruising through or calling this farm home. During my inspection, I walked a 95% of this farm, because the more I waked, the more I wanted to see. The landscape goes from rolling hills, to deep hog back ravines, which Hancock County is known for. I found numerous places where I’d personally hang a stand. It’s very evident from the aerial photo, there are some very nice natural pinch points. Once on the farm, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. The deer sign completely littered this farm, as the photos below will attest to. In reality, I could have added another 15 plus photos’ of nothing but rubs and worn down deer trails. The farm will have a very small timber harvest in early 2019. They are taking approximately 20 to 25 trees. With the tops laying all summer, this will do nothing but enhance this farm. Don’t let this farm slip by you. The opportunity to harvest a very nice Illinois buck, lies right here with this farm and within a great county! *Lease runs from 1 April through 15 March *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only *NO Trucks allowed on the farm! *No screw-in step or nails. Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7017 Wayne County North Carolina Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/6043/Wayne-County-North Carolina-Hunting-Lease.html Here is an excellent farm being offered in Greene and Wayne County, NC. The County line divides 450 acres, approximately 138 acres in Greene County and 312 acres in Wayne County. This large farm is made up of mixed timber (hardwood/pine), crops, and water; everything you need to hold and grow a healthy deer herd. During my inspection, the deer sign was littered from one side of the farm to the other. I found some very nice pinch-points, funnels, and numerous possible stand locations. Currently the fields are planted and maintained by a large local produce company. Responsible ATV use for game recovery and stand placement. No hunting w/dogs. No dogs in fields where produce is grown. Owner reserves (shares) fishing rights. Don't miss your opportunity at this one! Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 6043 Randolph County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7784/Randolph-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html Here’s a nice farm being offered for lease in Randolph County, IL that sits right on the Mississippi River. The farm is secluded and the only way into the farm is from the levee. Only private landowners can drive on the levee. However, upon leasing the farm, you will be granted permission. The farm is made up of timber, row crops, and water. As you will see in the aerial photo, there are a couple nice funnels that allow for a nice stand locations. Upon my arrival to the farm, I watched six turkeys run from levee road down into the timber of this farm. I also found plenty of deer sign along the edges of the row crops. Because this farm sits right on the Mississippi River, it will be susceptible to flooding. However, having the opportunity to hunt river bucks, along the Mississippi, in a county that is known for harvesting some very nice bucks, should be worth it. *Lease runs from 1 April through 30 March Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7784 Miami County Kansas Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8065/Miami-County-Kansas-Hunting-Lease.html Here is a quick little hunting spot just minutes from suburban Kansas City. Located less than 2.5 miles from Hillsdale Lake, this 94 acre farm has just enough huntable cover for both the deer and upland game. And, don’t forget about the waterfowl that may land in the crop fields or in the small pond. On the day of inspection, there was plenty of deer sign, including several buck rubs and scrapes. My bird dog also got to tag along with me on this trip, and she locked on point several times after sniffing out some of the quail that call this farm home. Deer unit 11. Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8065 Logan County Ohio Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8083/Logan-County-Ohio-Hunting-Lease.html This is another nice little Logan County property that could turn into a hot spot. There is a 19 acre woodlot that cattle may have access to part of the year. This area is enclosed by the yellow line on the map. They are usually taken out after grass turns brown in fall. However, I inspected the woods and it looks like the cattle do not spend any time there and stay in the pasture. As a matter of fact, the Landowner’s son says this is the hot spot of the whole area during gun season. I would not have any problems hunting this woods anytime, whether cattle are present or not. Rest of farm and neighbors are all in row crops. There are two good thick fence rows on the east and north ends. If you want, you can hunt the fence rows outside the pasture early season, and then after the cattle are gone hunt the woods during rut, gun and late season. There is good deer sign on the property, so they are here. Food, lodging and everything you need can be found in Bellefontaine and Marysville. Respectful ATV use for hunting purposes only. Landowner lives on property and will keep an eye on things. Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8083 Stephens County Oklahoma Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7675/Stephens-County-Oklahoma-Hunting-Lease.html Property consists of timber, brush and fields, and a good watering hole as well on the property. While walking the property I noticed deer moving in the timber, and turkey tracks along the pond and hog tracks also. No cows on property: Easy access to property; No camping; 4 wheelers ok: Feeders ok, must mark feeders with your name Owner will not tolerate trespassers: Must contact Oklahoma Leasing Agent to get land owners number to view property:. Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7675 Carroll County Ohio Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8063/Carroll-County-Ohio-Hunting-Lease.html This property is LOADED with oak trees. Well groomed and manicured property, easy access to all parts of the property. Planted white pines act as bedding and shelter areas. Oak trees all over the property. Central ridge drops off to bottom on either side. ATV's OK for hunting purposes only. Landowner lives on the tract. No fishing included. Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8063 Logan County Ohio Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8081/Logan-County-Ohio-Hunting-Lease.html This is one of my personal best picks for a hunting property in Ohio. I personally hunt within ten minutes of this property, and would have no problem leasing this place myself if I needed more ground. This property is close to Rushsylvania, and anything you need is in Bellefontaine or Marysville. Just a little history…. A very famous TV hunting personality took a 200 class whitetail with his muzzleloader only 1.5 miles from this property…. Most know who he is. There have been multiple 200 class whitetails killed on the ridge system just to the west of this property in the last ten years. These are the stats you look for when picking out a great property to lease. Now about my inspection. There are about 20 acres of woods on the east side. Marked on the map is the access lane and grass run-off lanes to give you great access to the whole property. Fields are in row crops. There are great connecting woods and cover. The farther I got back to the north end, and the hidden crop fields, the better the deer sign was. The tracks along the fence rows looked like cattle trails. The fence rows had great set-ups for early season and rut stands. As you can see from the pictures, I found two sheds on inspection. The main woods has a good trail system, as it was logged many years ago, and landowner still cuts some firewood out. This woods would make a great sanctuary as you hunt the fringes. Landowner has let some relatives and friends hunt in the past, so you may find a few old tree stands, but use them at your own risk. Respectful ATV use for hunting purposes only. Almost every inch of this county is leased or locked up, and there is a very good reason for that. Hunters in the know want to be here. So if you want your very own slice of this great hunting area don’t pass this property up. Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8081 Jones County Iowa Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8542/Jones-County-Iowa-Hunting-Lease.html This huge property is in the middle of one of the largest sections in Jones County. Driving in a circle around this section is nearly 20 miles. There are several adjoining farms 500-1000 or more acres touching this farm. If that doesn’t sound like a recipe for awesome age class I don’t know what does. And to top that off it’s in Iowa! This farm has a dead end access from the north and the south. It also has another dead end access into the small parcel that adjoins corners on the west side. The open ground on the north end of the property is row crops and alfalfa. The open ground on the south end of the property is pasture. Most of this pasture is only summer grazing with the cows off in the fall. There’s some year round pasture in the central area of the property near the two homes. Scattered throughout the property are 300 acres of un-pastured timber. There are so many great locations you could hang stands for weeks. Mineral Creek winds though the entire core of this farm creating breathtaking views along with awesome crossings and bottlenecks. This property will be awesome hunting all stages of the rut. There’s so much diversification and ground that the deer never need to leave. It’s like a whole new world when you drop into this monster section. This farm is what dreams are made of if you’re after giant deer. Turkey hunting will also be second to none. Camping with hookups is allowed. Zone 8 Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8542 Clay County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5126/Clay-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html Here’s a very nice farm being offered in Clay County, IL. This farm is made up of timber, row crops, pasture ground and water, with the opportunity to harvest some very nice bucks. This farm has already had some very nice bucks harvested, to include a 172" B&C. The photo showing the two locked bucks were found by the landowner, right on the property line of this farm. The 16 point was deceased and the 21 point was dragging him around barely alive. The other harvest photos and trail cam pictures, shows you exactly the caliber of bucks that are calling this farm home. I put up over 20(+) deer during my inspection and found numerous stand locations. I don't believe you'll be disappointed with these 405 acres. This farm had a select cut in 2013, which did nothing, but improve the habitat. The landowner also has 200 head of cattle and these cattle have been on this farm, as long as the farm has been there. As the pictures indicate, they have little to no effect what-so-ever on your hunting. *Lease runs from 1 April through 15 March Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5126 Fayette County Indiana Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8538/Fayette-County-Indiana-Hunting-Lease.html Bow hunting only! This farm is in 2 parcels. The north farm is 16 acres and all tillable. It is along the highway and surrounded by homes. Opportunities here will be with a ground blind or tower only but don't overlook taking a deer in the south west corner ! The south farm is 16 acres too, and has timber along the entire south side. There is a fence separating you and the neighbor to the south. It looks really good here and the deer sign was easy to find. Please note - the point on the east side has recently been taken out by the farmer. We adjusted the price accordingly to make this a super affordable lease. A couple of hunters can be on the same lease at 2 different parcels! The south farm is big enough for 2 bow hunters as well. Don't forget.. you can hunt archery in Indiana all season long, just wear the legal hunter orange during the gun seasons. ATV okay for hunting purposes only Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8538 Clinton County Iowa Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8540/Clinton-County-Iowa-Hunting-Lease.html Here’s a phenomenal farm being offered for lease in Zone 8, Clinton County. During my inspection I easily jumped up 40 plus deer, no exaggeration! I have never inspected a farm, where I jumped that many deer. The second group of deer I jumped, I was literally thinking, when is the last deer coming through? I stopped counting at 20, and they were still filtering through. The landowner watches approximately 15 to 20 deer in the backyard every morning while having morning coffee. There was not a single inch of this farm that did not have deer sign on it. The pictures I took the day of my inspection will attest to this, just unreal. The CRP is in warm season, native grasses and the deer are using it to bed. Even in this cold weather, the CRP is still high and difficult to see the deer while they’re traveling through. You still can’t see them when they are bedded down. During the fall, they will even feel more than comfortable traveling through when the grasses will be higher and thicker. This will basically be a deer sanctuary. One of the reasons the deer are on this farm is, this area of the county has the only timber within a 50 to a 100 mile radius. Plus, it sits right next to the Wapsipinicon River. If you’re looking for a farm that has the potential to harvest a mature Iowa buck, then don’t let this farm get away from you. *Deer Lease Only *Landowner reserves the pheasant & spring turkey hunting rights *ATV use for hunting purposes only *No trucks are to be driven on the farm *No nails or permanent stands allowed *No use of cabin Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8540 Randolph County Indiana Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5342/Randolph-County-Indiana-Hunting-Lease.html Another tract where a smaller area of mature trees connects two larger areas. Not quite a funnel, but I still like the lay of this piece of property. For you Ohio hunters that might be looking for something in Indiana, but not too far from home....this one deserves a look. Right on the In-Ohio border. A couple of nice tree lines in the area and plenty of mature timber to get a stand in. This fits the mold of "hunts bigger than it looks" due to the surrounding farms. Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5342 Westmoreland County Pennsylvania Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5451/Westmoreland-County-Pennsylvania-Hunting-Lease.html 29 wooded acres on the banks of the Conemaugh River. This is a steep wooded hillside. It has a few places with benches and draws to the top. Good gated access road back to gas well and ATV trail runs along the bottom. Good fishing access. ATV's OK for hunting purposes only. Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5451 Putnam County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5498/Putnam-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html This farm was recently planted in row crops and that should bring even more wildlife to the property. Great parent/child spot or an add on property if your hunting close. Good deer sign day of inspection, with a good travel route along the creek. Putnam County has a very good reputation for those hard to come by giants. Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5498 Crawford County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7789/Crawford-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html Crawford County has always been one of those counties in Missouri that consistently produces in the deer hunting category. 40 acres all wooded, minus the great power line that runs the length of the property. Mature oaks throughout the lease that will produce a great crop of acorns during the year, which the deer seek out when feeding. Somewhat of a primitive easement to access the property, but once on the property moving around on the logging roads, and the power line is not a problem. ATV’s & camping during hunting season only Deer & Turkey lease only Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7789 Lunenburg County Virginia Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7903/Lunenburg-County-Virginia-Hunting-Lease.html This 142 acre tract in Lunenburg County is 100% wooded. A nice creek runs through the property providing a good water source. The majority of this tract consists of mature planted pines. Along the creek and on the west side of the tract you can find some hardwoods including oaks. One section in the northwest corner was clear cut about 2011 and planted back with pines. You have good access to this tract from two intersection roads and parking to enter the property is ample as well. During my inspection I found several rubs along the creek and leading through the pines. The oaks were beginning to drop mast and the deer were taking advantage of that. This property has great potential as it has not been hunted in many years. **Sunday Hunting Allowed. **ATV use OK for hunting purposes only. Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7903 Parke County Indiana Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/3782/Parke-County-Indiana-Hunting-Lease.html Close to Waveland Lake, this lease offers some great deer and turkey hunting close to Indianapolis. Nice hardwoods surrounded by row crops. Moderate sloping terrain creates some no brainer stand locations. Public camping within 2 miles. Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 3782 Clark County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/6784/Clark-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html Good looking farm for those once in a lifetime deer that call Clark county Missouri home. Row crops planted on a yearly basis, weather permitting. Day of inspection I pushed two very nice bucks off this property. Clark county is in the (4) point restriction zone and always produces big deer every year. The CRP on the Northern part of the farm will be a great bedding ground for the deer. Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 6784 Allamakee County Iowa Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8539/Allamakee-County-Iowa-Hunting-Lease.html If you have points to draw Iowa you better take a look at this property. I’ve looked at a lot of land and don’t think I’ve ever seen this many deer and this much deer sign on and around a property. This property is in the middle of a huge section that’s extremely isolated because of the Iowa River. The farm sits at the end of a long dead end road. When I pulled into the driveway the deer were literally running everywhere like pets and eating right out of the cattle bunks. All of the thick cedar hills on this property make it an awesome wintering area for the deer. The deer sign in the snow was as heavy as I’ve ever seen before. What really got me excited was, everywhere I looked I started finding huge rubs from last fall. I stopped taking photos of rubs after about the 20th one I found that was bigger than my arm. The deer and turkeys were running everywhere while I was walking. It’s very obvious there are a lot of big deer cruising this property daily during the rut. Spring turkey will be top notch as well. With 250 acres of un-pastured timber and a lot of terrain this one will hunt huge. The property has flatter land through its core and the timber drops off in all directions. The cedar bedding areas are some of the finest I’ve seen, and it’s obvious the deer think the same… There’s a nice open CRP field in the middle of the timber on the east half. This breaks things up a little and should make for some better pinch points and better viewing… The north end drops off the hill down to the flat river bottom. This will make a great stand location, especially if you want to try flat ground for a sit or two. Cattle are kept close to the buildings on just a few acres. Open area to the south side of property is about half Alfalfa and half CRP. Camping with hookups is allowed. The landowner has a couple ideas for food plots if you’re interested, this can be discussed with him after leasing. Zone 9 Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8539 Crawford County Michigan Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/6874/Crawford-County-Michigan-Hunting-Lease.html This northern Michigan 40 has plenty of hills and valleys to funnel the deer. Most of it is thick regrowth maple from a thinning several years ago, but there are several natural openings to set up an ambush. Several old large pines and maples will make great stand locations. There was plenty of sign with runs crisscrossing all over the property. There is a nice little camping spot on the property or Hartwick Pines State Park in nearby Grayling, only 10 minutes away. This would make a great father son spot or for a couple of guys looking for a quick hunt right off I-75. Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 6874 Montgomery County Indiana Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8537/Montgomery-County-Indiana-Hunting-Lease.html This is different type of property. It is an old gravel pit with some activity almost entirely up near the road consisting of tractor trailer parking for the most part. There is a lot of old retired gravel pit equipment laying around throughout. However, the sign for all types of game was literally everywhere! You have the opportunity for all game but I especially feel that the deer, waterfowl and predator hunting will be the best. You can even try to catch some pan fish. Easy access all over except for the far south end which is very thick and nasty. Perfect for a big buck to hideout. I highly suggest seeing the farm/gravel pit in person to decide if it will work for you. ATV allowed for hunting purposes only Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8537 Tompkins County New York Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7240/Tompkins-County-New York-Hunting-Lease.html Base Camp Leasing has a 68 acre hunting lease available in Tompkins County, New York. This lease is less than 10 miles from Ithaca, New York (south). This property has a beautiful section of woods that has a minimum maintained access road that runs through it. I saw plenty of old rubs, deer trails and droppings on my inspection. The property is heavily posted and has trails west and east of the access road. As a bonus there is a 78 acre state forest bordering the south east part of this hunting lease. The north east side of the property heads downhill. The slope is not bad and easy walking. The west part of the property is the top of hill / ridge and seems flat (loaded with deer trails). As the property heads south it get extremely steep heading into the state forest. The access road actually heads down a ravine. The hunting lease and state land is on both sides of the access road. A great hunting lease with awesome potential! ATV use is allowed for hunting purposes only. No room for a camper! Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7240 Hancock County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7527/Hancock-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html Here’s a nice little farm being offered for lease in Hancock County, Illinois. This farm is made up of timber, water, and pasture, with row crops surrounding the property. During my inspection, I found plenty of deer sign and some very nice rubs. Portions of this farm are very thick with underbrush. It’s very hard to show this in the photo’s as everything is still trying to bloom out. However, I walked through a section of timber that was difficult to get through, which will provide even more cover once everything greens up. This farm has cattle, but with the amount of deer sign present, combined with current trail-cam pictures, I don’t believe the cattle will have any effect on your hunting. Plus, the cattle have been on this farm for numerous years. *Lease runs from 1 April through 15 March. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only – no joy riding. *Screw-in steps and nails are not permitted. Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7527 Webster County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7171/Webster-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html This farm is laid out really nice for that small group of guys wanting to be successful every year. Some row crops, surrounded by mature woods will have the local deer herd living here. Inspecting this farm had me thinking hard whether I needed it for myself! Four hunters will find plenty of room, combined with several possible deer stand locations. The Niangua River runs through the SW corner of the property and could possible challenge you if you’re wanted to get across it during wet weather times. Landowner has a property management plan in place and will be on the property from time to time during the year working. Landowner is currently picking rocks out of a field as we speak to plant an alfalfa field and small bean field. Deer & Turkey lease only / ATV's for hunting related issues only There is a great place up by the barns to camp or local motels are not far Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7171 Orange County Indiana Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7012/Orange-County-Indiana-Hunting-Lease.html One of the better farms that I have been on! I usually try to mention when I jump groups of deer up while inspecting a new lease, on this farm I felt like I was jumping herds versus groups. There was a herd of deer in the West wood lot of 20+ deer and a group in the east wood lot of 10+. This lease has 2-3 flocks of turkey's that will make hunting almost like picking them out of barrel if you know what you are doing. Lease is on a dead end road that gets very little traffic during hunting season. The fields are planted in row crops and there are several small ponds throughout the farm that will provide year round water as well. The hardwoods are getting a select harvest done right now and they should be finished up before the start of the 2016 turkey season. The select cut being done is going to make this farm even better. The deer are going to have even more browse and the bedding cover that tree tops provide is going to allow it to hold even more deer. There are 15+ persimmon trees up by one of the old ponds that produce a lot of fruit every year. Another bonus is that this farm adjoins 1,000's of acres of the Hoosier National Forest and it is a 1.5 mile walk to get to this farm from the public parking area. This part of the Hoosier National is thick, has hardwoods, giant pine thickets and has a ton of deer and turkey on it. Just step over the fence on the south line and you have miles of more hunting area at your disposal. Please look at the topo map of this farm so that you can see the great elevation changes that it has. Also in the topo map photo's the areas highlighted in green are the forest boundaries. This is an awesome lease and will provide some of the best hunting that you will ever find in the mid-west. Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7012 Morgan County Ohio Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/4614/Morgan-County-Ohio-Hunting-Lease.html Nicely layed out tract containing 2 large wooded areas with several ways in. Lots of edge; will hunt real easy. Crops along with some hay and pasture. Landowner lives on the tract. I can attest that this is a great area as I personally hunt about 15 miles away. Respectful ATV use OK for hunting purposes only. No campers. Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 4614 Muskingum County Ohio Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5975/Muskingum-County-Ohio-Hunting-Lease.html I really don't even need to write a description; just look at the map and pictures and you'll see that this is one of the best laying pieces of land I have seen. It has lots of edge, hidden fields and openings, some good bedding cover, mast trees, and gas line right of ways. Good trail access. Respectful ATV use OK. Foodplots may be able to be developed with landowner consultation and permission. No campers. Gated access. Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5975 Clark County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/6783/Clark-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html This farm is perfect for a two or three guys looking for a productive lease in Northern Missouri. This property is currently going through a transition period. Landowner has just removed or thinned some woods and is fixing fences to bring cattle on board in the fields. Even with the livestock present this farm will still be home to lots of wildlife... The cattle will not have access to the section outlined in blue. The southern part of the farm is mostly crops, do not overlook this section, deer frequent these fields daily. Deer lease only Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 6783 Knox County Ohio Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/4511/Knox-County-Ohio-Hunting-Lease.html Crops, CRP and hedgerow. This little tract is is in a great area right on the Knox/Licking County line. Will hunt shotgun well and evening bow coming to feed. Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 4511 Delaware County Ohio Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/4611/Delaware-County-Ohio-Hunting-Lease.html Delaware County is known for high end whitetails. Here is a great farm with over 35 acres of timber, plenty of connecting timber, and is in row crops. The landowner lives on the farm to keep an eye on it. There are plenty of quality deer in the area and a few turkeys. This is a great farm for a small group in an area where big bucks roam. Respectful ATV use for hunting purposes only. Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 4611 Franklin County Indiana Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5483/Franklin-County-Indiana-Hunting-Lease.html Great central Indiana hunting lease. I saw some really good sign and jumped a few deer the day of Inspection. It is only 15 minutes from a major Interstate but it feels like hours from anywhere. This place is secluded and has deer and turkey all over it with a great landowner who is looking for some good long term guys. There are 4 different woodlots and multiple thickets to help you spread out on this place. It lays like 200 acres because of the amount of elevation change that this farm has on it. Hay fields, row crops, grown up cedar thickets and open hardwoods make this farm a deer hunter's dream. This farm will hold deer and a good buck could come from anywhere in this part of the state. There are anywhere from 15-30 cows that have access to the southern part of the farm. The landowner moves them around in 5-6 different areas in the south 90 acres of the property. The north 60 of crops and woods does not get cattle on it. There is also a cell tower in the north section but that shouldn't effect your hunting. *Deer and Turkey Only. *Please set up appointment with Agen to inspect property Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5483 Franklin County Indiana Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5484/Franklin-County-Indiana-Hunting-Lease.html Seclusion, row crops, open hardwoods and water are a few of the things that will help this property hold some nice Indiana Whitetails. This Indiana hunting lease will not disappoint any hunter that is looking to knock down some bruisers in Indiana. I jumped 5 deer while inspecting and saw a few turkey as well. This farm is separated by a county road and has multiple access points to help you play the wind while deer hunting. The far east wood lot and hay field can be accessed by crossing the creek or their is also a driveway easement that comes in at the far northeast corner of the property. I think that this east section is going to be a really good spot, big bedding areas all around and you will have the closest food source. The west section of the farm has row crops on top of the hill and nice open hardwoods with a couple of ponds mixed in as well. Farm is just to the south of Property #5483 and only separated by the 20 acres the landowner's house sits on. A great opportunity to group these 2 up and have a really manageable spot here. Cattle have access to around 40 acres around the barns and on the hillside. They are not on the East side at all and landowner will keep them out of the crop fields on the West side. *Deer and Turkey Lease Only *Please set up appointment with agent to inspect property Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5484 Jefferson County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8117/Jefferson-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html The farm is being offered for lease in Jefferson County, IL, which was absolutely covered up with deer sign. The pictures tell you everything you need to know about these 91 acres. There was not an area on this farm that didn’t have deer sign, on the day of my inspection. I jumped up approximately 10 to 15 deer and had several deer that ended-up circling back across the row crops from where I originally jumped them. I was able to snap a picture of them heading across the field. The deer trails are completely worn down and they are nothing but mud where they are crossing the creek. They're so deep that they truly look like cow paths. You will see exactly what I'm talking about, when you get on the farm to inspect it. You will have access from both the south and west to enter the farm in case of changing winds. The farm is made up of timber, row crops, and water. A very nice farm that has a ton of potential if hunted properly. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only. Saturday, 16 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8117 Putnam County Tennessee Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8535/Putnam-County-Tennessee-Hunting-Lease.html Who doesn’t love a convenient place to hunt? This 65-ac Putnam County Tennessee Deer and Turkey Hunting lease is a mere 3 minutes from I-40. I am happy to finally land a property in this great county. The lease sits on the DeKalb/Putnam Co. line. I bumped deer during my inspection of property. Saw plenty of deer sign including rubs on your lease. Logging roads get you around the place as you will find. Good timber mixed with cedars here guys so expect mast from time to time. Noted some blow downs in one area the deer are using pretty often it seems. There is some steeper ground in a few places but I noted several stand locations I would set. Plenty of room for 3 here and this should be a great Tennessee Deer Hunting Lease. One look and you'll lock it down. **There have been 10 recorded bucks taken over 150” in this county over the years** **ATV use OK, for hunting purposes only** **Caney Fork River and Happy Hollow Boat ramp across the street from your lease** Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8535 Coles County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8526/Coles-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html For only being 63 acres, this farm certainly boasted a ton of deer sign, as you will see in the pictures. The farm was loaded with worn down deer trails and old rubs. With the amount of timber in this area, the deer have no choice, but to use this farm and it’s very clear that’s just what they are doing. Upon walking the farm, I found several nice spots where a stand needs to be hung. You will see these areas and what I’m referring to, upon your inspection. As you will see in the photos, I found plenty of rubs and some that are not too bad. This farm could end up being a place where one could harvest a very nice buck, so long as you do not over hunt it. I have no doubts that the deer will be using every bit of this farm during pre-rut/rut and during the early season. Upon leasing this farm, you will only be 10 minutes from all the necessities needed in town. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only *No permanent tree stands *No nails are to be used *No trucks are to be driven on the farm for any reason Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8526 Lawrence County Kentucky Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8528/Lawrence-County-Kentucky-Hunting-Lease.html This is a property located in far Eastern Lawrence Co. It is mostly wooded and was logged in 2018. I saw quite a bit of deer sign in and along the logging roads leading up and down the mountain. A creek does provide a water source on the Northern end of the property near the majority of the open ground. The landowner said that the neighbors keep a careful eye on the property and make sure no one comes and goes without proper permission. ATV access is allowed but will be limited due to the steep terrain and water bars located on the roads. The landowner will be implementing some timber stand improvement practices on the property in 2019 and requested to be notified beforehand when someone is going to be present on the property in order to not interfere with their hunt. Camping is also allowed on the property when doing so for hunting related purposes. Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8528 Coles County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8532/Coles-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html Here is a very nice farm being offered for lease in Coles County, Illinois which is made up of timber, row crops, CRP, and water. It’s very clear the deer are traveling through this farm. What’s nice about this farm is, the row crops are not planted right up next to the trees, but rather, there’s a very nice buffer of CRP. This buffer will make it easier for to enter and exit. As you will see in the pictures, the timber on this farm is thick with underbrush, providing a ton of cover for the deer. I jumped up 6 deer on this farm directly behind the pond. Believe it or not, the underbrush, even with this cold weather is still thick and it took me a minute to even see them. The deer paths coming to and from the row crops are still being heavily used, which is a very good sign this late in the year. If this farm is hunted properly, the opportunities are here. However, if you hunt three guys at once, you’ll put too much pressure on the farm and your chances will drastically dwindle. If you want to add to your acreage, property #8530 sits directly across the road (If available). Having both of these farms will certainly increase your odds. All amenities are only 10 - 15 minutes away in town. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only *No permanent tree stands *No nails are to be used *No trucks are to be driven on the farm for any reason Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8532 Coles County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8533/Coles-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html I was pleasantly surprised when I stepped onto this farm! Because, of the amount of timber, I wasn’t expecting to find the deer sign that I found. However, that all changed when I started my inspection. The photos tell the story, on how the deer are using this patch of timber, to travel to and from the row crops. There is a portion of the timber that is very thick and will provide a ton of cover for the deer to pass through comfortably. There is also a patch of CRP providing good cover. I found a lock-on stand and I must say, it was placed in a very good spot. To confirm what I’m saying, request the driving directions to this farm and have a look for yourself. All amenities are only 10 - 15 minutes away in town. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only *No permanent tree stands *No nails are to be used *No trucks are to be driven on the farm for any reason Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8533 Macon County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5881/Macon-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html You don't always need big woods to get the job done. This is a very nice 80 acres that has just a few trees to place that perfect deer stand. Big row crop farm situated right next door to a giant bedding ground in arguably the best deer county in northern Missouri! A perfectly placed hunting tower would be the ticket here. When you inspect this property, you will be able to envision how much this property will be a great travel corridor and food source. Macon County always produces those whitetails that you would consider a once in a life time trophy. Camping & ATVs are allowed during hunting season only.... Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5881 Goodhue County Minnesota Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8531/Goodhue-County-Minnesota-Hunting-Lease.html Here’s an awesome property in a great neighborhood. The mix of timber and crops around and on this farm is perfect for high deer numbers. The two yellow areas on the map are existing food plots that you can plant whatever you want in. The big open field on the west side of this property, and north of the building site is a 30-year-old CRP field. The open field south of the building site is half row crops and half CRP. The Blue area on the maps is seasonal cattle pasture. The green area on the map is a rock quarry that the landowner has leased out. This area is off limits. However it should provide an awesome funnel to hunt on the east side of it… The landowner lives on the property. Landowner reserves the right to hunt the Second Shotgun Season. No Pheasant hunting allowed. Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8531 Miami County Kansas Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5305/Miami-County-Kansas-Hunting-Lease.html Here is 160 acres in Miami County, located less than one hour from downtown Kansas City. This will be a good all around hunting property, giving you chances at deer, turkey, quail, DUCKS AND GEESE!!!. There are five different pockets of cover surrounded by crops, plus a hedgerow along the north side. The Marias des Cynges river is only a half mile to the west. Two ponds on the south side look like dynamite duck holes. The sunflowers and weeds around the ponds should also help bring in the doves. Super easy access from three sides, including blacktop highway along the west side. Electricity and water could possibly be available at the old farmstead. Deer unit 11. Tuesday, 19 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5305 Shelby County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/6612/Shelby-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html Here’s a nice 118 acre farm being offered for lease in Shelby County, Illinois, just south of Cowden. This farm is made up of timber, row crops, and bedding. The southern border of this farm is right on the Shelby and Fayette County line. I mention this because I’m a fan of, and have hunted Fayette County. As you will see in the photo’s, I came across some very nice deer tracks on this farm. I also jumped a couple of doe's during my inspection. I like the fact that the western side of this farm runs into some bigger timber and I’m certain the deer will travel through this farm in order to reach the row crops. If properly hunted this farm could possibly produce some very nice results. *Lease runs from 1 March through 28 February *ATV use permitted. *No screw-in steps or nails. Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 6612 Tuscola County Michigan Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8031/Tuscola-County-Michigan-Hunting-Lease.html What a great 74-acre Tuscola County farm. With the long shape, high river ridge, tree lines and scatter fields this will hunt and feel much bigger than the acreage suggests. It has plenty of woods and currently some open fields that are now enrolled in CRP and will be planted to native grasses in spring 2018. The back of the property has a high ridge looking down on some river bottom and the Cass River that forms the boundary. State land is across the river and the owner says when the pressure is on there the deer are pushed over. He also said the river is excellent duck and goose hunting. During inspection I found lots of deer sign with tracks and rubs all over. I also spotted several flocks of turkeys hanging out in the woods and fields. Access through the property will be easy with an old farm road along the edge of the woods leading almost all the way back to a timber harvest landing. Absolutely no driving or food plots on the CRP area. The owner can direct you to the path you can drive and a couple of areas available for food plots. He is a great guy who lives and hunts right down the road. He may even help you put in a food plot for an extra fee. The owner reserves the right to fish the river with friends and family and allow a local river cleaning group to take out their Kayaks during the summer. Camping and ATV use for hunting purposes only. Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8031 Coles County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8524/Coles-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html This farm has every ingredient you need, to hold and grow mature whitetail deer. It’s made up of timber, row crops, CRP, and water. As you will see in the photos, the deer sign was scattered throughout the entire farm. The green outline is in CRP and is providing cover and bedding. The number of deer trails that led from the CRP to the timber, were unreal. I only took pictures of just a few of the trails. I came across several places on this farm, where I would personally hang stands. The aerial photo, pretty much lays those areas out for you. The green borders, outline the CRP field. The timber has some serious underbrush, but it’s very difficult to show in pictures, this time of year. If you’re looking for the opportunity to manage your own lease and have the opportunity to harvest some very nice bucks, then don’t let this farm pass you by. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only *No permanent tree stands *No nails are to be used *No trucks are to be driven on the farm for any reason Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8524 Coles County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8525/Coles-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html I can’t even begin to estimate the number of rubs, I came across while inspecting this farm. Plus, I jumped up, around 10 to 12 deer. This is another Coles County farm that has all the ingredients needed to harvest a mature buck; it’s made up of timber, row crops, bedding, and water. The farm also boasts some very nice hog-back ravines, which is where I jumped up a majority of the deer. There were places on the farm that were difficult to walk through, because of the underbrush. This was surprising, because normally by now, most of the underbrush has been pretty much knocked down. The cover this farm will provide during the hunting season will be amazing and will allow the deer to calmly travel through. As you will see in the photos, I found a very large rub on a cedar tree and clearly, the buck that was rubbing that cedar is sporting some serious bone! The way this farm lays out, it will hunt much bigger than it looks. Upon leasing this farm, you will only be 10 minutes from all the necessities needed. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only *No permanent tree stands *No nails are to be used *No trucks are to be driven on the farm for any reason Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8525 Coles County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8527/Coles-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html At first glance, I already know what you’re thinking; there’s not enough timber. Then you start looking at the pictures and think, the amount of deer sign on this farm is incredible! How do I know? Because, those were my same exacts thoughts, then I inspected it. The deer sign was absolutely littered throughout the entire farm. The deer trails literally look like cow paths. The CRP that borders the timber was most certainly providing bedding before the deep cold weather knocked most of it down. Another plus to this small farm is it has all the essentials you need; timber, row crops, CRP, and water. With the CRP being used as bedding, there is high probability that the bucks are checking this area during the pre-rut/rut. Do not overlook this farm, it could easily be one of those farms that don’t look like much, but end up producing some very nice results. Upon leasing this farm, you will only be 10 - 15 minutes from all the necessities needed in town. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only *No permanent tree stands *No nails are to be used *No trucks are to be driven on the farm for any reason Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8527 Coles County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8529/Coles-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html Here’s a very nice farm being offered for lease in Coles County, Illinois. This farm is made up of timber, row crops, and water. I really like that this farm is somewhat secluded and is off the beaten path. It has an easement in the southeast corner, where you will enter the farm from. As you will see in the pictures, there was certainly no shortage of deer sign. I jumped up 5 deer on the north side of this farm. Not sure if they were feeding or bedded down. All I could do was count 5 white tails, as they bolted through the timber. There are several nice stand locations on this farm and the aerial photo gives you couple obvious spots right off the get-go. In the northwest corner of the row-crops there is a CRP field; however, the farmer went in and sowed in soybeans and left them standing (landowner may not do this every year). The deer have been all over this section feeding on those standing beans. With the seclusion on the north side of the farm, the deer should feel comfortable coming out during the daylight hours. Upon leasing this farm, you will only be 10 - 15 minutes from all the necessities needed in town. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only *No permanent tree stands *No nails are to be used *No trucks are to be driven on the farm for any reason Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8529 Coles County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8530/Coles-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html The deer paths coming to and from the CRP fields are nothing but solid mud, because they are being used so much. The deer are absolutely all over this farm! This farm is made up of; timber, row crops, CRP, water, and it simply lays out perfect. The timber is surrounded by row crops to the east and CRP to the west. Once you’re on this farm, you will find, this farm will hunt much bigger than it shows. Even though, much of the CRP has been knocked down due to the cold weather, the deer are still using it to bed. I found many stand locations on this farm, as there are a couple of very nice pinch-points that you will see in the aerial photo. The north side of this farm is secluded and the deer should feel very comfortable coming out in daylight hours, especially where the CRP and timber meet. The deer feel so comfortable on this farm that there were numerous deer tracks right up behind the outbuilding by the road. This farm boasts a ton of opportunity and I feel success is only a matter of time for whoever leases it. Upon leasing this farm, you will only be 10 - 15 minutes from all amenities in town. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only *No permanent tree stands *No nails are to be used *No trucks are to be driven on the farm for any reason Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8530 Coles County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8534/Coles-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html Because of the amount of timber, I wasn’t expecting to find a bunch of deer sign. Nor did I think, I would be overly impressed. But, that simply was not the case. As you will see in the photos, I found a ton of deer sign and it was evident that the deer are this farm. The CRP connects the timber and the row crops, so you have that as a buffer. Plus, if you look at the photos of the CRP, that’s going to provide a ton of cover for the deer. I’m not so sure, I would overlook this farm with all the deer sign this farm has. I’m sure you’re thinking, this could be a gamble and you could be right. However, it could also be a gamble that pays off. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only *All amenities are only 10 - 15 minutes away. *No permanent tree stands *No nails are to be used *No trucks are to be driven on the farm for any reason Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8534 Clay County Kentucky Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8522/Clay-County-Kentucky-Hunting-Lease.html This is a property located near Manchester, KY and minutes from the Daniel Boone Parkway and National Forest. This property is spilt by a small county road and formidable creek at times. To gain quick access into the property a person could park along the main road in one of the several available pull offs. The eastern tract has not been logged in recent years and holds some good timber. There is acres to the eastern side explained in the directions. The western side of the property has been logged and in normal circumstances a person can access it by wearing waders or by using the same entrance/low water crossing the loggers used (depending on rainfall). If there has been much rain, access could be difficult to impossible on that side. There is some local traffic in and out of the road that splits the property, but no one has been given permission to hunt either tract in the last 30 years. I saw both deer and turkey sign throughout my walk thru. Some of the logging activities should promote new growth and will allow for good deer browse and bedding cover. Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8522 Manistee County Michigan Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/6880/Manistee-County-Michigan-Hunting-Lease.html This farm in northern Manistee County has hay fields, crops, several blocks of woods and plenty of hills. There are lot’s edges and fence lines to set up with great stand locations. With a good county road in front and an unimproved county road on the east side of the property you have many places to sneak in against the wind. If you want to drive back into the property there is a two track farm road that goes through the fields and right up into the wooded area. There were plenty of deer tracks around the field edges and I jumped a few deer in the woods while inspecting the property. When I left at dusk, I counted 18 deer feeding in the north field just as it was getting dark. This was after I had disturbed the bulk of the property during inspection. The pictures are bad because of low light. What a great spot. This would be a good location for a group who is use to hunting the Manistee Forest but want something much more private and productive. The landowner lives right on the property where he has been most of his life. He knows the land and deer movement and is willing to give you pointers where to sit. Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 6880 Texas County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7452/Texas-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html Here is a big cattle and sheep ranch that has been a producer in the years gone by in the deer category. Landowner lives on this property and is always noticing deer and turkey running around the farm. There are several developed areas on the farm (see pictures) that have been fenced off for food plots. The landowner states that for a small fee he will keep the food plots looking good. Texas County is always high in the deer harvest numbers every year and is known for putting out big bucks as well. Landowner says he can keep the livestock away from the prime hunting areas during the peak hunting times if you just get with him and coordinate things. There are two cabins available for your use during some parts of the fall season, and both will need some TLC, before you can call them a good basecamp. The blue square on the map doesn't belong to this lease, but the owner never hunts and your landowner states that 40 acres is a great source of bedding ground for the wildlife in the area. Electric & Water is available and ATV’s and camping is allowed during the hunting season Food plots can be planted with landowners permissions on location Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7452 Camden County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8058/Camden-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html If remote and plenty woods is what you like, look no further then this 160 acres in central Missouri! Plenty of deer and turkey present day of my inspection. Property looked outstanding for the turkey hunting and had just the right amount of wooded ridges & gullies for those big Missouri bucks…Logging roads throughout the property, will make some great locations for food plots. Lake of the Ozarks is just down the road if you want to do some fishing while in town!. ATV's & camping allowed during hunting seasons Food plots allowed Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8058 Crawford County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5542/Crawford-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html This is a fantastic farm that is always under lock & key. It has a big lake to draw the wildlife during the dry years. The rest of the farm is made up of mature hardwoods with a few pine groves mixed in. There is a power line that clips the NW corner of the property and numerous other great pinch points and travel corridors throughout this property. Landowner states that because of the crops just east of this property, there is a very good deer population & movement on this property. This farm is what I consider a no brainer. Deer & Turkey lease only Landowner might have storage for the ATV's or a camper / There is also a RV camping resort just down the road from this farm / ATV's for hunting related tasks only. Deer & Turkey lease only / Hotels really close in Cuba, Missouri. Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5542 Ripley County Indiana Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5978/Ripley-County-Indiana-Hunting-Lease.html Here it is boys! This is 200 acres of some of the best whitetail habitat in the Midwest. I guess you should know that this lease adjoins a 6,000 acre State Park that only has 4 days of hunting allowed a year for a deer reduction hunt! The crop damage that this landowner experiences when fields are planted in beans is ridiculous. I couldn't walk 5 feet without crossing a deer or turkey track. The woods are tore up with rubs and scrapes, and the trails were all mud. The woods have been well cared for with timber stand improvement and select cuts. There is great bedding and feeding throughout the entire farm. There is a picture of a few sheds the landowner has picked up out of the yard around the old house. I can't imagine how many he would have if he actually went shed hunting. * Green line in aerial photos is the outline of the park. * Deer and Turkey Hunting Only * Property under lock and key and must stay that way at all times. Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5978 Hancock County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7417/Hancock-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html Here’s an awesome farm that is funnel heaven, being offered for lease in Hancock, IL. The farm is made up of timber, row crops, water, and bedding; everything you need or could want in a farm. The harvest and traicam pictures speak volumes of what this farm can produce. During my inspection, I jumped several deer to include two different bucks that I would estimate to be around 130” to 135”. Both bucks were bedded down in the thick cover this farm offers. As you will see in the aerial photo, there are numerous pinch points and funnels on this farm, leading into the row crops. There's also a pond on this farm that will provide water all year long and especially during the pre-rut and rut. Clearly there is a ton of potential to harvest a mature Illinois buck on this farm, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s located in a great county. *Lease runs from 1 March through 27 February *Absolutely no trucks allowed on the farm *ATV permitted for hunting purposes only Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7417 Fayette County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/3189/Fayette-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html This farm contains a long creek bed, which is made up of 45 acres of mature hard woods, hills, valleys, two ponds, and 50 acres of rotation crops. All of this combined, gives this farm the opportunity to harvest a nice buck. As we all know, big timber, water, crops are a great combination to have. Plus, having a water source during the rut is also a plus! The landowner is a super nice guy! Fayette County is a fast and upcoming county, as noted in the November issue of Illinois Game and Fish Magazine. For the hunting seasons of 2009 and 2010 Fayette County is listed as a Trophy Buck County outdoing counties such as Pike, Adams, and Brown; follow this link to read the article; http://www.gameandfishmag.com/2011/11/08/illinois-2011-deer-forecast-finding-trophy-bucks/ Deer & Turkey Hunting only! Lease runs from 1 April through 1 March. Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 3189 Grundy County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/4536/Grundy-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html Very nice northern Missouri farm with good strips of woods surrounded by row crops, that will draw the wildlife down on your place looking for that food source. This property and Grundy county as a whole has always produced big whitetails year after year. Camping & ATV's are allowed Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 4536 Vernon County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/6968/Vernon-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html Another great farm in Vernon County just north of Nevada, Missouri. Plenty of good woods for multiple deer stand locations so you’re not stepping on one another. I inspected this property in early January and there was still a lot of deer calling this farm home after the main part of the deer season. I have listed several Vernon County farms before and this farm ranks right up there with the best of them. Row crops in the fields, combined with good cover and a water source should have the deer holding tight on this lease... Landowner has a family member renting out the trailer on the property. Because of the location of the trailer, it will have no baring whatsoever on the hunting. Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 6968 Wood County West Virginia Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8040/Wood-County-West Virginia-Hunting-Lease.html This property for lease is located in Wood County, WV not too far from the Ohio River. This is one of the better areas to hunt in WV. This property should have great potential due to the fact it lays right on a golf course. The deer sign here was very plentiful. Heavy deer trails all over the property and plenty of buck sign to boot. Also, a good amount of turkey sign. The property is a hilly/steep property consisting a mostly mature hardwoods. There were plenty of good benches/flats to hunt and one major ridge line. The owners have not had this property very long, so they are unsure of surrounding hunting pressure. They have put up some posted signs and cables to try and deter ATV riders (which you can see evidence of). I think they will be happy to have someone on the property to help out with this issue as well. I have no doubt this can be a great property to hunt with a little bit of work. The deer traffic should be exceptional on this property. You must park in the Club House parking lot to access the property. You will see steel cables with orange ribbon. This marks where I entered the property. You can go to your left or to your right and hit some old roads that will take you around the majority of the property. Camping is not permitted, ATV use for hunting purposes can be accepted if you work with the landowner. Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8040 Lawrence County Kentucky Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8520/Lawrence-County-Kentucky-Hunting-Lease.html This is another great Eastern, KY property sitting only miles from Grayson, KY, I-64 and Yatesville Lake. The property was selectively cut around 2012. However, there are plenty of mature trees still on the property, minimal damage in terms of slash and erosion and it didn’t seem to affect the flock of turkeys I discovered while walking around. Several big toms amongst the eight or nine hens were feeding close to the creek upon arrival. The property is gated off and access will be allowed through it for parking, but arrangements need to be made with the landowner in order to place another lock on the chain or obtain a key so you are free to come and go. The farm has a few acres that are cleared, nestled between the road and creek on the front of the property. Turkey sign is everywhere. As you head to the South you will encounter a few trails leading up the side of the mountain where I discovered most of the deer sign including tracks, droppings and rubs. Browse is re-occurring in certain areas where the tree canopy was opened when cut. I’m sure the deer are taking advantage of this. ATV use and Camping are allowed on this property when doing so for hunting related purposes. Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8520 Estill County Kentucky Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8521/Estill-County-Kentucky-Hunting-Lease.html This is an Eastern, KY property sitting only 30 miles from the city of Richmond and Interstate 75. The property is entirely forested and is surrounded by the Daniel Boone National Forest to the North and East. Access to the property consists of a Forest Service Rd. that will dead end at a small cemetery. This is a very secluded and hidden property, but camping is permissible on or near the farm. ATV use will be prohibited due to USFS regulations. There are some old logging roads running through parts of the property that will provide quick and quiet access. I noticed a nearby pond just off the North Eastern boundary, providing a permanent water source. Several rubs were present in and around the cluster of pines surrounding the pond. Trails existed throughout the drainages and tops of the hills. The timber on the property consisted of a mature stand (oak/hickory mix) that had not been logged. This would make an excellent place to get away, camp and chase those mountain toms and whitetails. In order to reach the property my advice is to drive to the cemetery, park and head West straight down the hill. You will see pink flagging and yellow signs marking the boundary. If you have a GPS or printed map you will be able to figure out where you are easily. Cell service is limited or non-existent unless you are on top of the hill or back out at the main road. Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8521 Breckinridge County Kentucky Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8523/Breckinridge-County-Kentucky-Hunting-Lease.html Here is one you don’t want to miss. Not a large tract but location wise, this 46-ac Breckenridge County Kentucky Deer and Turkey Hunting Lease could produce big. There was a 190” taken a little over a mile away from this property in 2018. Out front you have pasture and a few cows restricted there. There is some bedding cover at front where a small amount of timber was removed in recent past. The rest is good timber all the way to the creek, mixed with a few cedars. All the trails I saw had recent very heavy use, and I saw a ton of trails on this lease. Noted a few rubs and beds also. There is a spot you can plant, and the landowner has given the OK. He could even assist you with it, consult after leasing. You just can’t pass a chance to hunt this county guys. You always ask for great spots and here it is. Several good bucks have been seen on this property over the years. Some adjoining properties are not being hunted…FYI. **3 hunters allowed, 2 Adults and 1 Youth Only** **On-site landowner so eyes on this one** **Breckenridge County is a go-to county for B&C Bucks** **ATV use OK, for hunting purposes only** **Camping is welcomed, speak with landowner upon leasing regarding electric & water hook-up** **Keep all gates exactly as you find them, this is a working farm** Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8523 Pittsylvania County Virginia Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/6545/Pittsylvania-County-Virginia-Hunting-Lease.html Looking for a Pittsylvania County Virginia hunting lease that has everything? Don’t let this one pass by! This property has all the essentials deer need to not only visit but live there year round. There are several fields which provided excellent forage. Approximately 115 acres of the property was clear cut in 2006, then allowed to grow back naturally. This has provided excellent cover for the deer, not to mention all the tender vegetation that it provides. All the draws and creek lines are in mature timber with oaks providing yet another food source. Around the clear cut the landowner left mature trees on the property for the purpose of providing excellent vantage points for hunters. The property has two ponds and two creeks that run through it also. This makes the farm an all-round perfect habit for wildlife. This is a part of a working cattle farm, but the fields are used in rotation with other tracts to insure overgrazing doesn't occur. The cattle are also fenced out of all draws and creeks on this property making them perfect for the deer to travel in. This property has been intensely managed over the past 15 years ensuring only mature bucks were harvested, and a minimal number of those as well. The landowner told me the farm produces at least one 140+ class buck every year! During the inspection I saw at least 10 different deer, a group of turkeys, and heard another group of birds that had a gobbler lighting the woods up at 11:00 am. There were numerous rubs and slick trails working in and out of the cut over. This is a perfect property for the hunter just wanting to hang stands and hunt. No food plots or prep work needed on this one! Camping is acceptable. Only respectful ATV usage allowed. Sunday Hunting Allowed. **Property can be combine with BCL property #6544 to provide a larger tract. Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 6545 Howard County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7939/Howard-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html Wow! Look at this great farm along the Missouri river bottoms in Howard County. The deer and turkey are abundant on this lease for sure, as you can see in the pictures. This long farm has 2.5 Missouri river frontage with mature woods and plenty of new growth to make the wildlife feel safe. Plenty of big deer sign day of inspection, giving me that fuzzy feeling someone will be very successful this fall. Plenty of room for four hunters to spread out on this lease. The levee is off limits except to cross over to the woods. In my mind the levee is a great barrier to hide a hunter while he is moving from one end of the lease to the other. Howard County is a fantastic county to fill that deer tag with a Missouri Giant of a deer! This county is one of a few that still have the 4pt restrictions in place.... Levee is off limits except to cross over to the woods Lease will run from date leased until August 15th, 2020 then run on a yearly basis Camping & ATV's allowed No food plots Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7939 Sullivan County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7986/Sullivan-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html Even though the aerial of this property doesn't jump out at you, the deer cam pictures are all one needs to summarize that this property will produce during the main part of the deer season. Big CRP farm, which the local deer herd use to bed down and look for love in the fall. I have hunted within a mile of this property in the past and know first-hand what the quality of deer can be in this area. Foot traffic or light ATV's only when the fields are wet Half of CRP fields are usually mowed each year Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7986 Fulton County Arkansas Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/4917/Fulton-County-Arkansas-Hunting-Lease.html Nice creek and bottom ground with good draws that will for sure funnel the deer. Several nice ponds and a wet weather creek. Deer and turkey sign abundant on the property. Landowner has seen as many as five bucks running together. Great place. Fields are hayed during the year ATV's allowed for retrieving game. No Camping / Motels 10 miles away in Salem, AR. Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 4917 Bath County Kentucky Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5657/Bath-County-Kentucky-Hunting-Lease.html 165 acres of mature hardwood forest with a pipeline running across the entire property. There are old logging tails on the property that need to be cleaned up. This property has had little hunting pressure in the recent past and has the potential to be a great lease. ATV use for hunting purposes is okay, no screw in steps, do not damage trees. Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5657 Lewis County New York Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5663/Lewis-County-New York-Hunting-Lease.html 204 acre dairy farm in Lewis County, New York located in DMU 6C. This area is considered a transitional area between the the St. Lawrence River Plain and the Adirondacks. Deer and turkey populations on this farm are solid. Property will hunt equally as well for bow, muzzleloader or rifle. It has a thick cedar swamp bedding area to hold deer. Crops on the agricultural fields will keep the deer and turkey well fed. A creek running through the property will provide a great water source. Numerous stand locations are present. I inspected this property in late February and while there I observed deer filing into the fields at sunset from the cedar swamp. Landowner will allow ATV use for hunting purposes. Lodging can be found minutes from the property; there is a nice little inn that would be a great base camp for your hunt. Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5663 Perry County Indiana Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/6074/Perry-County-Indiana-Hunting-Lease.html A great little secluded spot in a top producing area for Indiana. Landowner has opened up a couple of areas to promote undergrowth and create better wildlife habitat. Main woods are really nice and have some great oak trees in them. A nice sized pond up front and a small wildlife pond in the back will be good draws to the wildlife as well. I saw quite a few rubs and some really nice trails. This little spot has a lot of potential and could produce some nice whitetails. There is a lot of Hoosier National Forest available to hunt within a half mile of this farm and this would be an excellent basecamp to stay at. There is a small prmitive cabin that can be used anytime during deer and turkey season while you are there hunting. There is also a lot of state ground in the area if you just wanted to use this property as a base camp to stay at. Landowner has a cabin up front that he stays in, but it will not effect your hunting. Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 6074 Knox County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/4535/Knox-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html This is another very nice northeastern Missouri farm that usually has non-stop wildlife movement and deer sign. Good deer sign at the time of inspection with numerous big rubs and lots of row crops surrounded by cover. This property is layed out nicely and should be one of those producers everyone is looking for. Two ponds and the Middle Fabius River on the eastern side means this property just about has it all. Camping & ATVs are allowed during hunting season and motels are close. Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 4535 Adams County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5363/Adams-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html This farm sits smack-dab in the middle of Big Buck Country. Plus, it's only 1/2 mile north of the Pike County line. The farm is made up of timber, row crops, and a seasonal creek, the main ingredients needed to have the opportunity to harvest a mature Illinois buck. The way this farm lays out, it sets up very nice for both the archery and the shotgun hunter. While waking this farm, I found several stand locations and some very nice pinch points where the deer have to travel through to get to the crops. This farm was completely littered with deer sign, from the hedge row on the north side of the farm all the way through the entire timbered area. Because of the way the terrain lays, you cannot see portions of the timber from the county road. The bucks you see in the trail cam are still on this farm. These pictures were taken this past season. You will not be disappointed at all with this farm! Landowner is a very nice guy...upon leasing the farm, he will show you the entire farm and boundary lines. No screw-in steps. ATV permitted for hunting purposes only and must stay along the edge of the crop fields. Camping allowed up by the grain bins on the east side of the property.

This farm is made up of timber, row crops, bedding and water. The terrain is very diverse, as it goes from flat, to rolling, to some very nice hog back ravines on the east side. The blue square you will see is off limits. Even though this is part of the farm, the landowner has a small cabin there, plus he wants no fishing in the pond. During my inspection I found many pinch points and funnels. These will be easily located from the topo map provided in the pictures. I also jumped up several deer. This farm lies in some of the best big buck country in Fulton County. This farm is only a hop, skip and jump from the spoon river. If the timber harvest does occur, it's only going to make this farm even better. *This farm may or may not have a select timber harvest this summer. *Lease runs from 1 April through 1 March - covering spring turkey. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only. *No screw-in steps or nails. Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 6623 Vinton County Ohio Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7508/Vinton-County-Ohio-Hunting-Lease.html 145 all wooded acres with several ridges and hollows. Will hunt real easy with lots of funnel set ups. Lots of oaks for deer and turkey to feed on and agriculture in the area. The lease does not include the right of way that is the southern boundary.

Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7508 Clark County Missouri Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8519/Clark-County-Missouri-Hunting-Lease.html Bow hunters dream is what I would call this fantastic farm in a remote part of Clark County Missouri. I expect whoever leases this farm will have success year after year! The Northern end of this farm is a long bluff that runs along the Des Moines River. A person could actually watch deer in Iowa while sitting in your deer stand in Missouri...Southern end of the property contains row crops that will keep the wildlife rolling in on a consistent basis. Clark County is one of the few remaining counties left with the 4pt restriction in place. ***Landowner reserves the first (4) days of gun season exclusively to harvest meat for the freezer*** Camping is allowed No dumping waste, sewage, trash, or gray water No nails or metal embedded in the trees, removable screw-in hooks are allowed No cutting down trees Ok to cut small limbs only where limb joins tree All existing tree stands are off limits Immediately report incidents such as trespassers, accidents or injury Landowner would like harvest report by phone, text, or email Not required but landowner would like to show the hunters around first time on property Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8519 Fayette County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/4085/Fayette-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html This farm is nestled in among some big timber, wooded hills and good bedding areas, making this a very nice property. The deer have everything they need, bedding, water and row crops, which makes for a great combination. The bottom ground of this farm is absolutely tore up with deer sign, as you can see from the pictures. Several big bucks (160 Class) have been seen on this farm. This little farm could produce big results. *Fall Turkey hunting allowed. *Lease runs from date leased through 1 March. *No Screw in steps. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only. *No trash left behind. *The landowner is a great guy! Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 4085 Miami County Indiana Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/4621/Miami-County-Indiana-Hunting-Lease.html What an opportunity. This overgrown old pasture has turned into a bedding mecca. Deer are abundant and able to grow old in this thick cover. I truly believe a booner awaits the skilled hunter. Hardwoods are full of trails. Get your food plots in now and this farm will be a big buck paradise with no reason to leave. Crops on the property on the north end and south across the road. Great all around access. Thursday, 14 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 4621 Fayette County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7087/Fayette-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html A nice little 40 acre farm being offered for lease in Fayette County, Illinois. The farm is made up of row crops, timber, water, and bedding. Upon my inspection I found quite a bit of deer sign, for only being 40 acres. As you will see in the photos, the underbrush on this farm is already starting to thicken up and will do nothing, but get thicker as we head into summer months. This growth will still be there during the month of October and even some of November. The deer will feel very comfortable when traveling through this farm. There is a very nice access road that enters the farm from the north. This is an oil well road, which you will see in the photos. These oil wells will have absolutely no effect on the hunting, as they’ve been there for years. *Lease runs from 1 March through 28 February *Deer & Turkey Lease Only. *No Mushroom Hunting *No Screw-in Steps or nails. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only – no joy riding or recreational use. Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7087 Pope County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7203/Pope-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html Here’s a very nice 57 acre farm being offered for lease in Pope County, Illinois. Not only do you have 57 acres, but you also have couple hundred acres of the Shawnee National Forest to hunt. The Shawnee borders the eastern side, and what makes it nice is the only way into this section of the Shawnee is through this farm and another private property farm. The farm is also diverse with the north side being made up of rolling hills, which run right down to the bottom ground, where you have the Little Saline River cutting through the farm. The little Saline will provide the necessary water needed year round. I spoke to local resident who hunts the farm to the north and he stated that he has taken several 150 (+) bucks in this area. He also has an easement through the west side of this farm to access his 80 acres, after speaking with him, you will have no issues at all, simply a great guy and understands QDM. The boundary lines are marked with purple paint, some trees are very faint, but still identifiable. This is a very nice little farm that could prove to pay big dividends. *Lease runs from 28 February through 27 February. *No nails or screw-in steps permitted Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7203 Monroe County Kentucky Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8034/Monroe-County-Kentucky-Hunting-Lease.html When I inspect a property with this many rubs, I know someone is about to have a great time! Not a ton of woods here but there are enough trails, tracks and rubs to get anyone excited. You have hay fields and a creek bordering one side. Seen a nice spot inside the woods for a small food plot. The landowner has not allowed hunting so no previous pressure on this one. One area in the field is seeing regular use as noted by the tracks and droppings. Rolling farmland so be conscious of neighboring properties during gun season. I did find buck skull that looks to be a 2 yr old and has been lying there for some time, see pic. A sweet little Monroe County Kentucky Big Buck Hunting Lease. Respectful ATV use for hunting purposes only. ** Nice Gun shop nearby for your Convenience** **Ask landowner about local lodging once leased** **No camping on property** **Minutes from Gamaliel KY** **Cave on property, use caution** **Excellent parent/youth lease** Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8034 Ashland County Ohio Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/4450/Ashland-County-Ohio-Hunting-Lease.html This is a nicely layed out farm consisting of crops and bottomland. The bottom is going to be a real hotspot during the rut when bucks are cruzing. Lots of edge cover to hunt along the cropland. Landowner lives on the tract. Camping allowed during the hunting season in the gravel pit. Responsible ATV use OK. Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 4450 Ellis County Kansas Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/6717/Ellis-County-Kansas-Hunting-Lease.html Here is a nice little 80 acre tract located in Russell County. There are some good woods along the creek, especially up in the NW corner. I saw a lot of deer tracks, as well as quite a few rubs on the trees while inspecting. The balance of the property is planted to crops. This looks like a pretty solid little farm. The owner says he also sees turkeys out here, and should have some pheasants on it once they rebound. This property is located less than four miles from I-70. Deer unit 3. Tuesday, 12 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 6717 Gallia County Ohio Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/5943/Gallia-County-Ohio-Hunting-Lease.html Very nicely laid tract. Mixed woods and brushy fields offer great cover. Three hardwood ridges with lots of white oaks and many side ravines give many stand setups. Good trail system and gated/cable entrances. Saw lots of tracks and beds with some good rubs. ATV's OK for hunting purposes only. Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 5943 Sullivan County Indiana Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/6426/Sullivan-County-Indiana-Hunting-Lease.html Great little lease that is surrounded by the Fairbanks Landing State Wildlife Area. Landowner has a lot of crop damage on this farm and would like you to take quite a few does if you get the chance. The woodlot is mainly a creek bottom that makes for a great pinch point and travel route for deer. I can't imagine what will cruise through here during the rut, should make for some exciting hunts. Landowner does see some turkey here during the spring. There is a lot of remote ground and great wildlife habitat on and around this lease. Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 6426 Perry County Indiana Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/6456/Perry-County-Indiana-Hunting-Lease.html A good Indiana hunting lease that gives you easy access to thousands of acres of State Ground. The crop fields on this farm are some of the only row crops around for a couple of miles. I know this area and have hunted around here on state ground before. It gets very little hunting pressure except for opening weekend of firearm season, and those 2 days are not bad at all. There are 2 large crop fields on the east side, and a 3rd one about 2 acres in size on the south tip of the farm. A couple of nice pine thickets to the south were being used as bedding areas and the woods to the north are fairly open with a couple of nice thickets mixed in too. There is a small house right off the road that the landowner's relative lives in. They will keep an eye on the farm while you are not there. Perry County is a good county that has always produced a lot of deer and turkey in the state of Indiana. Don't let the State Ground turn you off, there are as many deer here as any part of the state. They can come from anywhere and they can get some age on them hiding in the hills. They will come out for food and does, and you have both. Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 6456 Grant County Kentucky Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/8516/Grant-County-Kentucky-Hunting-Lease.html This is a Northern, KY farm sitting nearly halfway between Cincinnati, OH and Lexington, KY close to I-75. The property is mostly open consisting largely of pasture land and brush. Cattle are present at certain times of the year but are rotated frequently between this farm and another property. The farm is split by a county road and pretty much dead ends at the creek. Very infrequent traffic, but makes it convenient to get to the property. A creek on the western side of the property supplies water year around and provides some of the best timber on the farm. Several other timbered draws and drainages exist throughout. I found several rubs, trails and other deer sign located to the North and East where deer seem to be actively coming out from the neighbor’s property and into the fields. Little hunting pressure on the neighboring farm to the North and East. The landowner also lives on the Southern boundary when you first come into the property and can keep an eye on things. He often sees deer and turkey wandering the property both in and out of season. Camping and ATV use are okay for hunting purposes only. Saturday, 9 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 8516 Fayette County Illinois Hunting Lease http://www.basecampleasing.com/7112/Fayette-County-Illinois-Hunting-Lease.html An awesome 65 acre farm being offered for lease in Fayette County, Illinois. As you will see in the photos, there have been some very nice bucks harvested throughout the years and some very nice bucks still calling this farm home. The property is made up of timber, row crops, and water. It also provides water year round, which is essential during the rut, when those big bucks are visiting the local water hole. This farm boasts some very nice valleys, which roll down into the bottom ground on the north side of the farm. It has some very nice oak trees and I found numerous locations to hang a stand. I must say, the deer sign completely littered this farm. Speaking of stands, the landowner also has three 12 foot stands; two that are 8x8 and one that’s 6x8. You can see the 6x8 in the photos on the edge of the row crop field on the bottom ground, which is bordered by Hickory Creek. The landowner also has a cabin, which sits on the 3 acre lake, you can see the lake in the aerial photo, and it sits inside the white square. The cabin is not part of this lease, so all arrangements must be worked out with the landowner. As I have said many times, I’m a fan of Fayette County. It’s a county that doesn’t receive a lot of recognition, but continues to produce some very nice bucks year in and year out. *Deer Lease Only – Lease runs from 1 July through 20 February. *No mushroom hunting. *No nails or screw-in steps permitted. *ATV use permitted for hunting purposes only – absolutely no joy riding Thursday, 7 March 2019 00:00:00 EST 7112
