About Base Camp Leasing
Founded by Steve Meng an accomplished whitetail deer hunter and former professional business man in the grain industry, Steve took his passion for hunting and turned it into a career.

Established in 1999, Base Camp Leasing has led the way in the hunting lease industry ever since and continues to grow to new states every year.
