Known for our Spring turkey hunting worldwide, early booking is a must. The Edwards Plateau region of West Texas boast the largest population of Rio’s in Texas as well as the highest number of hunters. Based on TPWD’s estimate for hunters and their harvest in our region for 2009, 14,747 hunters took 6,371 birds for roughly a 43% success rate. We hosted 83 turkey hunters that Spring that took a total of 159 birds for roughly 96% success on two birds per hunter.
If you have a Rio Grande Turkey on your mind, Live Oak is the place you need to be this Spring. Wether you prefer to “Cutt-n-Run” or play the “patience game”, we’ve got a couple of longbeards waiting to see what you can throw at ‘em.
Our Hunts are set up so that a hunter
can get a layout of the area he’ll be hunting the first afternoon out. By starting out with an afternoon hunt we feel it gives the hunter an advantage for the rest of his trip.
Your Spring Turkey Hunt will include 6 hunts (3 morning, 3 evening) 2 mature birds (we dont shoot jakes), guides , meals, lodging and care of game.
Turkey hunts are guided three on one, with each guide having his own designated hunting areas. Generally a hunter is given the layout of the area he’ll be hunting; roosting, nesting, feed/water areas the birds use along with a rendezvous point. Our guides are all avid turkey hunters and hunt every chance they get. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, we’ll put a longbearded Rio in front of you before you leave.
We manage our Turkeys just as intensly as we manage our whitetails. Through complete record keeping, Fall sightings, and hunting the same ranches for the last 15 years we know how many mature birds we can conservativly take any given year and still continue to grow our bird population.
