PHOTO CONTEST WINNER
“Michigan Fall Turkey”
|Father and son, Ty and Tyler Chatell, were in an elevated box blind. Both had their bows out and had an agreement in place: If deer come in, it’s dad’s shot; if turkeys come in, it’s son’s shot. As Ty explains, “I saw a turkey slide off the roost and I knew that they would wander through our deer hunting spot. We had consistently seen flocks of 20 to 30 on the trail cam. It was Tyler’s shot and he got it from 20 yards out. Before we went out, I showed Tyler where to aim by showing him a picture of a turkey in a magazine. We have a 3D deer target at home that he practices on, but we don’t have a turkey target.” According to Ty, “The turkey even made the Michigan record book. Beard & spur added together must total over 8” and Tyler’s was 13 13/16 inches. We plan on mounting the tail and beard on a plaque.“|
This is the first year Ty’s eight year old son has hunted. Not only did Tyler get a turkey, but two weeks earlier he got a 6 point buck with a cross bow from 20 yards out. As far as the 6 point that Tyler got this year, he wants a European mount with orange dipped camouflage skull.
Tyler got his license as part of the Michigan Mentored Youth Hunting Program, which is designed to introduce youth under the age of 10 to hunting and fishing. By eliminating the minimum hunting age in Michigan, the Mentored Youth Hunting program lets parents determine if and when their child is ready to hunt.
|Ty Chatell has had his Michigan Base Camp Lease since 2004. Not only does he have a great landowner who lives within a mile of the property, but the lease is only 15 minutes from where he lives. Prior to his Base Camp lease, he hunted with friends when and wherever he could.|
On Ty’s bucket list is getting a Bison in South Dakota and for his daughter to get her first deer. She’s a little embarrassed that her younger brother got a deer and a turkey his first year hunting.
Way to go Ty and Tyler Chatell!

|Featured Property #6447Auglaize County, OH|
Max Hunters: 3
|This is a nice hunting property for lease in central Ohio with 30 acres of timber. The cover connects to various wood lots so you have a good chance of catching a good buck cruising during the rut. Fields are in crops so you know the deer grow healthy here. This property is right on the Auglaize/Shelby County line.The property is located not far from I75, which makes it a perfect farm for someone from Michigan or Indiana looking to hunt just over the line. There is plenty of lodging and food nearby. Bonus: the landowner lives on the property to keep an eye on things.|
The woods have good access, some nice white oaks, and decent deer sign. This might just be the perfect small farm to put your tag on an Ohio stud!!
|Introducing Nebraska Leasing Agent:|
|As a Midwest native, Mark Rohlfing grew up hunting upland birds on his grandparent’s farm near Wisner, NE. While attending high school in Minnesota, big game hunting opportunities caught Mark’s attention. It was then he began bow-hunting whitetails and has not looked back.|
Mark currently resides with his wife Ann and daughter Hannah in Tyndall, SD. He obtained a M.S degree in 2004 from South Dakota State University studying Wildlife Management. Mark currently works for the Natural Resources Conservation Service helping landowners develop conservation plans. This often involves studying aerial photos and utilizing cost-share programs to establish wildlife habitat.
“In my spare time I truly enjoy scouting new properties. Don’t kid yourself, it’s all about location. Consistent success comes from controlling hunting pressure and that is what a lease can do for you. Hunters who utilize Base Camp Leasing know they will have an undisturbed place to hunt for years to come. Nebraska is a great place to obtain a lease because non-resident tags are readily available”, says Mark.
Mark will inspect properties as if he were going to hunt them himself. He will prepare aerial photos, take pictures of game sign, and recommend potential stand or blind sites if desired. Mark looks forward to helping hunters obtain a great hunting spot. Please contact Mark to answer questions you may have about leasing one of our Nebraska properties. Mark can be reached at (605) 690-2753 or by email at email@example.com.
