    I recently visited www.basecampleasing.com and was just checking it out. Have any of you heard anything about them or dealt with them? They seem to have some pretty good leases listed.
  2. They somehow got ahold of my e-mail address and were sending me listings all the time. Some of the listings looked like good deals but I never followed up on any.

    I get their emails too. Only had one that fit what we were looking for and it was too expensive for the property. I keep checking into them though.

    I lost some prime land to them here in Indiana. Just be careful I know the land I used to hunt on they sure made it sound good. But it's pretty deceiving how they describe it to how it really is.

    Words of wisdom.

    Before my dad and I got the lease we currently have I was checking out some of the property that they were offering. I checked out 2 places they had around Princeton and neither was worth to me(95% row crop 5% timber) what they were asking. The surrounding properties were fantastic.

    You can bet also that they are paying the land owner 1/2 of the price.

    IMO, you would be better off trying to obtain property your self from land owners.

    Some of the properties in Illinois seemed really reasonable. There are alot of smaller properties that want 2-4 hunters, which is ideal to me. I was thinking about joining one this fall just to try it out. But I've heard Illinois tags are like gold now, so there's no guarantee I'd get one. Anyway....I'm not planning on leaving my southern MO lease......I LOVE IT!

    They divided up the 300 acres we hunted in to several properties. One says something about being a duck hunters dream the property has a ditch running through it and I have never seen a duck on it. Another other says plenty of room to spread out. It literally is 2 fence rows and about a 100 acre row crop field !

    The deal they signed with the land owner made them 20% over what the landowner gets.
