Mid March – Mid April for the combination hunts.
Here at WTA we have many clients wanting to go after an Osceola turkey and combine it with a gator hunt while in south Florida. This outfitter has been guiding clients to trophy alligators and longbeards for nearly 20 years. After you harvest your gator you will begin the second leg of your hunt for the elusive Osceola turkey. With a home range limited to the lower third of Florida, Osceolas are one of the most difficult of the North American birds to harvest, and hunters travel from all over the country to get a crack at tagging this long-spurred tom. Our outfitter tips the odds in your favor by managing large tracts of land on private farms and ranches exclusively for the Osceola turkey, and they rotate between farms from one year to the next. By doing this it allows hunters more opportunities to get after those more mature three year old gobblers with long beards and spurs. Success rates for our clients are extremely high. Hunting is done from ground blinds as well as run and gun. If hunting the Osceola turkey and an alligator is on your bucket list, or if you need the Osceola to finish or start your slam, look no further. This outfitter is a full time, full service entity and will do everything possible to take great care of you and get you on a mature tom and trophy gator. Hunts are fully or semi-guided. Lodging, meals and license are the clients responsibility.
