DO-IT-YOURSELF TURKEY HUNTS
KANSAS OR NEBRASKA ONLY $600

HCU works with a couple outfitters and ranchers that offer trespass fee spring gobbler hunts in both Nebraska and Kansas. These are for the turkey hunter that prefers to hunt on his own and do his own calling. The properties have high numbers of birds and past success has typically been near 100%, with the exception of any extreme weather conditions.

This northwest Nebraska rancher/outfitter will allow you to hunt 4 days on his private property for two Merriam gobblers for only $600. Success has continued to be 100% and all HCU customers have been very satisfied and have taken many mature toms. Hunters stay at a local motel and eat in restaurants at their own expense. An effective way to hunt this big country is glassing and locating birds and then hiking to them. He normally only takes about 6 to 8 hunters total per year on his 4,000 private-acres. The area is known as Pine Ridge country and has big ponderosa pines and canyons making this a very beautiful area to hunt turkeys. Hunts run from about April 15 to May 20 and early hunts could be cold. He prefers groups of 4 or less. HCU’s Bob Wodzisz has been on this property. Hunt TU327.  Pictures from this Hunt.

 

We work with another Merriam outfitter in central Nebraska along the North Platte River. He is priced at $600 for 2 birds and has over 9,000 private-acres. Depending on the date you choose he may have a cabin available for lodging at a very minimal cost, but you will need a group of 4 or more to secure this price. He runs fully outfitted hunts for $995 that includes lodging and meals and you can add a calling guide for $300.

You can stay at a local motel and do your own restaurant meals. This property has both Eastern and Rio turkeys. Properties are just outside Manhattan in northeastern Kansas. He also offers lodging and meals for an additional $395.  HCU consultants Bob Wodzisz and Cliff Graham have taken birds here. Hunt TUKSUN565.  Pictures from this Hunt.

 

TEXAS RIO GRANDE GOBBLERS
2 BIRDS FOR ONLY $1350
INCLUDES AIRPORT PICKUP

Success continues to be 100% on at least one bird on this bargain priced Rio Grande hunt.  $1,350 INCLUDES 2 gobblers, nice lodging, meals, guiding and AIRPORT PICKUP! The outfitter operates on a nice private ranch about 40 miles south of San Angelo. He offers three 2 ½-day full service hunts starting the first weekend of April and goes to the end of the month.

Hunters can choose their own style of hunting and have a choice of utilizing a guide or hunting on their own. Some hunters prefer to just hike and call, commonly referred to as run and gun, while others would rather hunt over feeders or water areas as the birds will visit these places daily. The outfitter knows the roost sites and can direct you to an area that holds birds. The spring of 2012 produced a fantastic hatch and mature gobbler numbers will be very high for the spring of 2014. This outfitter hunts his properties very lightly and only plans on taking about 10 hunters in 2014, so be prepared for plenty of action. If you are serious about a Rio hunt plan it for spring of 2014, you won’t be disappointed. San Angelo airport pickup.

3 KANSAS TURKEY OUTFITTERS
BOTH RIO’S AND EASTERNS
UNDER $1000 FOR 2 BIRDS

Here are 3 Kansas outfitters that offer Rio and Eastern turkey hunts at a very affordable price.  Spring of 2013 was extremely tough for most early turkey hunters due to the very cold temperatures with above normal rainfall. These Kansas birds are very vocal and extremely callable. Success has typically been exceptionally high on these hunts.  HCU consultants Bob Wodzisz and Cliff Graham have been on two of the properties.

The first outfitter took 10 guided hunters in 2013 and they took about 18 gobblers. He has 25,000 acres of private property with nice lodge accommodations and meals. 2 ½-day guided hunts are priced at $1,295 and include airport pickup in Manhattan or if you don’t need a calling guide the price is only $995.
