Hunt Details

Our all inclusive Osceola Turkey Hunt provides 3 days lodging and meals at Rocky Hammock Preserve, one Osceola gobbler, professional guide (decoys, blinds, transportation, drinks and snacks), cleaning/prep of game. Hunters that tag out early have the ability to purchase a second bird at $1,000.00. We also offer thermal hog hunts, fishing and other activities at a discounted rate.

Florida Outdoor Experience specializes in Osceola turkey hunts, considered by many to be the hardest hunt of the elusive Grand Slam. Our guides have years of experience chasing Toms and spend countless hours afield scouting every season. Florida Outdoor Experience takes a low number of birds off their properties, harvesting only mature gobblers, giving hunters the chance to encounter multiple long beards. Drummond Pond, like many of our farms, has a year-round feed program and food plots specifically planted for turkeys, which keep them roosting on our properties all year. Our feed program, combined with controlled burns, habitat management, and keeping predator numbers low, has caused our turkey population to explode over the past 10 years.

Our high success rate speaks for itself at Florida Outdoor Experience. Our guides will go the extra mile and our staff will ensure your Osceola Turkey Hunt is one that you will never forget. Taxidermy & processing is available upon request, additional fees will apply.
