The Eastern Wild Turkey is arguably the most sought after game bird in the nation, and the guides at Deer Creek have taken the art of turkey hunting to the next level. In fact, you can expect to be "set-up" on mature birds on each and every hunt.
Deer Creek's properties were the original release site for turkeys when they were restocked in Webster County in 1981. Today, turkey-specific nesting areas of warm season grasses are left fallow each spring and food plots of chufa, corn, milo, clover and alfalfa provide year-round nutrition. These plantings, combined with white oak acorns and other natural food sources, enable us to retain an abundance of wild turkeys on our properties. A maximum of four persons (guided 1 x 1) are accepted per 3-day hunt.
Three-day turkey hunts begin with a late afternoon arrival and include three nights' private lodging with meals, three mornings of guided hunts, birds dressed and vacuum packaged, and a fair-chase opportunity to harvest two mature gobblers. Opportunities are 90-100%, season after season. And if bass fishing is a passion, our "Blast and Cast" is a wonderful option. You can include two afternoons of trophy bass fishing for reasonable fees.
