Illinois Leasing Agent
Rod Shepard is the Illinois Pro Staffer for Base Camp Leasing. Rod was raised in North Central Pennsylvania where he became an avid whitetail hunter. At the early age of eight, he started hunting, fishing and trapping with his father. Like many hunters, he credits his father for introducing him to the outdoors and passing down the passion to pursue the whitetail deer. It's something he's loved and appreciated for the past 30 years.
Upon graduation from high school, Rod joined the United States Army and continues to serve today with 24 years of active duty service. Being a Soldier for this many years, has allowed him to serve in numerous places across the United States, which has brought him many opportunities to hunt in different areas of the country. He's been very fortunate to be able to pursue the whitetail deer from the thick and dense cover of Texas and Alabama, the oak hardwoods of Illinois and Kentucky, to the open woods of Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania. Rod measures his success as a hunter in stewardship and the memories he creates with family and friends.
Rod has his own lease in Illinois so he's fully aware and understands the needs of hunters when it comes to leasing hunting property. He will give the hunter and the landowner a candid opinion of the property and provide the hunter a fair and honest “hunters” assessment on property they're about lease. Rod resides in central Illinois with his wife and their seven year old daughter, whom he hopes to pass down his passion for the outdoors to.
