Oklahoma Hunt Camp

Wild turkeys are often referred to as a "gateway hunt." Because of their smaller size, affordability of the tag, and a healthy national population, chasing turkeys is an excellent way for folks to get into hunting.

If you've been looking to learn how to hunt wild turkeys, this Oklahoma-based Hunt Camp happening from April 29th through May 2nd is for you. During camp, you'll learn about wild turkey habitat, calling techniques, hunting strategies, and wild game cooking. With a little luck, you'll be able to experience an upland hunt or paddlefish fishing, too. You're bound to come away from this camp with a newfound respect for these smart birds as well as sound conservation ethics to keep in mind as you continue your hunting journey.

Information

Hunt to Eat is offering an all-inclusive mentored wild turkey hunt in Oklahoma. This property is along the Grand River and features rolling hillsides, 1,700 feet of riverbank, and extensive forests. Our hosts have a boat ramp that allows access to the Grand as well as personal modern cabins and spacious rooms for you to stay in. Hot meals will be cooked for you by our hosts' staff each day. This experience will be rustic yet elegant.

In addition to wild turkey hunts, the property offers outstanding upland bird hunting as well as paddlefish fishing opportunities. Our mentors are experienced bird hunters and anglers; if mentees punch their turkey tags early in the experience, you will have the opportunity to try upland hunting or chase paddlefish, too. 

Oklahoma Turkey Camp is all-inclusive. Anything you need, whether it be a shotgun, turkey calls, or ammunition will be provided for you. However, mentees are more than welcome to bring along their own personal firearm, camouflage, their favorite snacks, and any other items they would like for their hunt.

Hunt to Eat is an inclusive brand and community. We encourage BIPOC and LGBTQIA2+ folks to apply to be a mentee for this camp or inquire about becoming a mentor.
