Archery Turkey Hunt
1-1 Guests • Lodge • Private • Guided
Merriam’s turkey are found throughout the Western United States primarily in the ponderosa pine forests of Colorado, New Mexico, and northern Arizona. They have been transplanted into the pine forests of Utah, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota. In Arizona, wild turkeys can be found not only in ponderosa pine forest but also other vegetation types in elevations ranging from 3,500 to 10,000 feet. The best populations of Merriam’s, however, occur in the ponderosa pine forests north of the Gila River.
The Gould’s occupy the sky island habitats in southeastern Arizona. Gould’s turkeys are one of Arizona’s two native wild turkey species. They are only found in Arizona, New Mexico, and northern Mexico. They are slightly larger than Merriam’s turkey, Gould’s were an important food source for those who settled and worked in the rugged lands of southern Arizona years ago. Between the Civil War and World War I, miners working in southern Arizona harvested Gould’s for many of their meals. By the time Arizona had legal hunting seasons in 1929, Gould’s Turkey had already disappeared from the scene. Gould’s now occupy only a few remote mountain ranges in Arizona. However, these birds are making comeback tracks in the Huachucas and other mountain ranges in southern Arizona.
This hunt is offered on a daily basis rate, with a 3 day minimum. Base price is per day.
Non-hunters (filming, photography, etc.) are included in Additional Costs.
I had years of success hunting in Arizona both for myself and my friends and family. I developed a passion for the hunt and sharing my knowledge with others. This grew into a dream to own my own guiding service. Let us share our experience and knowledge with you.
