Are you looking to improve
your hunting experience in MI? Tired of spending more hours
getting permission to hunt than scouting? Tired of spending hours
scouting a spot and setting up, only to get flooded by a sea of
orange on opening day? Tired of looking for a lease you can
afford? Tired of spending hours in stop and go traffic to get in
a weekend of hunting? If so, we have an opportunity for you.
Great Lakes Outdoor Sports is a Michigan based hunting club. We
lease property, then make it available to our members for their
use. We handle all the contact with the landowners, post the
property, and control the access, allowing you to spend your time
scouting and hunting. You schedule the time and property you wish
to hunt by using our web based reservation system. Similar to
booking a hotel, you log into our system, provide information on
when, where, and what type of hunting you wish to do, and our
system gives you a list of available properties. Already know
what property you want to hunt, then simply check the available
dates and lock it in. Maps with GPS coordinants are provided with
the system. Reservations can be made months in advance, or the
same day you plan to hunt.
Finding a Michigan deer hunting lease can be time consuming and
expensive. It, also, locks you into a specific location that may
or may not be good year in and year out. As land use and
ownership change, so does its productivity in regards to hunting.
If you are locked into one parcel and a change in the surrounding
area deters deer or other game movement, your season could be
over before it starts. With Great Lakes Outdoor Sports, we
constantly evaluate our property and bring in more property as
membership and need arises. Our management won't lease property
we wouldn't hunt, and we hunt and scout the property we lease to
be sure of its quality.
Even if you find a hunting lease in Michigan, cost may be
prohibitive to the point where you need to find a partner to
share the cost. With a partner, you need to agree on how the land
will be used, when each can use it, where each partner will hunt
on a given day, and how to collect the money to pay the lease.
All of this can eat up precious time that could be spent hunting.
We, at Great Lakes Outdoor Sports have taken over 50 yrs of
experience organizing hunts, leasing, and experience in hunt
clubs to provide an option that greatly simplifies finding a
place to hunt, and opens up quality property for your use. If you
are a loner, you will be able to schedule hunts with no one else
to interfere. If you prefer a more social experience with like
minded hunters, we have opportunity to join other members on
hunts, and can even help coordinate a camp style experience. For
the cost of a typical 50-80 acre deer hunting lease in Michigan,
you can access nearly 1,600 acres. As membership grows, so will
