March – April
Florida is known for having the toughest turkey of them all, the Osceola gobbler. With his home range being just on the peninsula of Florida, hunters travel from all over the country and end up here for a shot at tagging a tom. This outfitter works very hard to provide you that opportunity by managing farms and ranches just for the Osceola turkey. In doing this they have kept their success rates very high. They enjoy guiding turkey hunters and love their excitement when they get the Osceola as their final bird to complete their Grand Slam. It’s an amazing experience that they have been involved in many times over. These hunts are fully or semi guided with lodging included, however you will be responsible for your meals and license. You will hunt from ground blinds as well as run and gun. They rotate between farms from one year to the next. This gives the areas a rest to allow for those two and three year old gobblers we all love to hunt. If hunting the Osceola turkey is on your bucket list or if you need it to finish your slam, look no further. This outfitter is a full time, full service outfitter that will do everything possible to take great care of you and get you on an Osceola tom. #186
“I filled my Osceola tag this afternoon. Amazingly, I got the tag filled on my first trip afield. 42 yard shot, and that was that. I got here early enough today to go out, even though my hunt didn’t technically start until tomorrow. Birds were out and therefore we were too. He’s a really nice bird! Your outfitter knows his stuff, and works diligently at managing his hunting properties and the game on them. Thanks for helping get this one lined up, and I am still batting 1000 filling tags on the hunts I’ve gone on through WTA” (M.F. 2017)
