Rod Shepard is the Illinois and Southeast Iowa Leasing Agent 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 has loved and appreciated for over 40 years.
