Eastern Regional Manager

Ohio Leasing Agent

Joe Brooks is the Base Camp Leasing Eastern Regional Manager and Property Specialist for Ohio. Joe has spent almost his entire life in northwest Ohio and southern Michigan chasing whitetails.

Joe has a degree in Wildlife and Fisheries. He spent 10 years fishing bass tournaments, until deciding to spend all his time focusing on hunting, filming, and writing about whitetail deer. He primarily hunts whitetail deer in central Ohio, along with a few out of state hunting trips a year.

After working for the power company as a lineman for twenty years, Joe then became a Product Specialist and Power Sports Manager for Cabela's in Dundee, Michigan. Primarily a bow hunter, Joe has written a bestselling deer hunting book titled "Year-Round Trophy Whitetails". Joe has been member of the Outdoor Writers Association and the Executive Board of Erie Shores Boy Scouts. He now works full time for Base Camp Leasing as the Eastern Regional Manager.

Even though Joe is an expert at teaching hunters how to gain access to land for hunting, he says the most enjoyable experiences for him are working with the landowners and hunters on the lands he leases to hunt. Landowners and hunters alike will be pleased with how Joe evaluates the capabilities of the land, and how he handles the lease process. He understands what both landowners and hunters expect, and how to find what they are looking for.

Ohio has the quality of whitetails and game that hunters want. The key to great hunting is controlling hunting pressure and that is what a hunting lease can do. By using Base Camp Leasing, landowners get rewarded without the headaches, and hunters know they always will have a place for themselves and their children to have a quality outdoor experience for years to come.

Joe is up front, easy to talk to, and can be reached anytime to answer your questions or concerns about an Ohio hunting lease by phone at (419) 261-8555 or email him at
