In hunting, there is nothing like the adrenaline rush of calling a big old Rio Grande tom in!  We are happy to set you up with a pop-up tent, guide you, or even let you do your own style of hunting.  We accommodate hunters of all types including bow, shotgun, pistol, and rifle.

Interesting Turkey Hunting Information:

  • We have harvested a turkey with 6 beards off our property!
  • Turkey beards grow 3-5 inches in a year.

  • 10- 20 percent of hens can grow beards.
  • When scoring a turkey, you measure weight, beard length, and spur length.
  • The males are seen with a fleshy wattle, called a snood, that hangs from the top of their beak.
  • Muslim farmers in the Middle East were the first to domesticate turkeys.  English customers assumed they were from Turkey and thus the name “turkey birds.”
