Florida Osceola Turkey Hunts
One of the most coveted and sought-after game species in Florida is the Osceola turkey, also known as the Florida turkey. This unique bird is one of five subspecies of wild turkey in North America.
The Osceola lives on the Florida peninsula and nowhere else in the world, making it extremely popular with out-of-state hunters. It’s similar to the eastern subspecies (found in the Panhandle) but tends to be a bit smaller and typically a darker shade with less white barring on the flight feathers of its wings.
We have over 5,000 acres of prime Central Florida Osceola Turkey hunting woods. Our low pressure management and ethical harvesting policies has presented us with some of the finest Osceola Turkey hunting Florida has to offer. We utilize a specialized hunting method that provides every turkey hunter the opportunity to hunt the NON-PRESSURED OSCEOLA TURKEY. This method has proven successful for our Osceola Turkey Hunters and is highly sought after. We have a 100% opportunity rate over the past 7 years.

How to register your bird:
The National Wild Turkey Federation (click here) and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) recognize, in their respective turkey registry programs, any wild turkey harvested within or south of the counties of Dixie, Gilchrist, Alachua, Union, Bradford, Clay and Duval, to be the Osceola subspecies. Eastern turkeys and hybrids are found north and west of those counties in the Panhandle.
If you harvest a turkey with an 11-inch beard or longer and at least 1¼-inch spurs, you can get your name listed in the FWC’s Wild Turkey Registry (click here) by applying for an “Outstanding Gobbler Certificate.” There’s also a “First Gobbler Certificate” awarded to hunters under age 16 who harvest their first gobbler, regardless of beard or spur measurements.
