Mid March – Mid April
Here at WTA we have noticed that many our hunters wanting to go after an Osceola turkey want to combo that with an alligator. For this reason we have come up with this package. This outfitter has been guiding clients to trophy alligators for nearly 20 years. Hot nights and hundreds of red alligator eyes await the hunt as you slip silently into the alligators world. You will hunt these gators by way of spot and stalk, archery equipment, or on rod and reel with a snag hook. These action packed hunts will not be one that you forget anytime soon. After you harvest your gator you will begin the second leg of your hunt for the elusive Osceola turkey. 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 meals and license are the clients responsibility. 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 and an alligator 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 and that trophy gator.
