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 setup 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, sustain an abundance of wild turkeys here. A maximum of four people (one guide per person) is accepted for each 3-day hunt.
The 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 percent, season after season. If bass fishing is a passion, their Blast-and-Cast is a wonderful option. You can include two afternoons of trophy bass fishing for reasonable fees.
