Drive about an hour from Orlando, Tampa, Sarasota, Bradenton, Fort Myers, Naples, West Palm Beach, Stuart, Fort Pierce, or Jupiter and you will be in the heart of the headwaters of the Everglades. Florida’s freshwater flows south through this area and creates one of the most unique ecosystems that boasts healthy populations of Osceola turkey, alligators, wild hogs, Seminole white-tailed deer, and wintering migratory birds such as ducks, snipe and doves.
The Area We Hunt
Everglades Hunting Lodge Ranches
Our ranches are located from Sarasota to the West, Jupiter to the East, Lake Wales to the North and Labelle to the South. These prime locations allow us to hunt both the A and C Florida zones for both deer and turkey seasons while virtually extending our seasons to give our hunters more opportunities to harvest trophy Seminole white-tailed deer and Osceola turkeys.
Everglades Hunting Lodge Lodging Locations
Our operation is headquartered in Sebring, FL where our main guest house and bunkhouse are located. Our main lodge can sleep 25 people comfortably and is located on a 3500 acre ranch Northwest of Arcadia, FL where we can host corporate groups, larger groups, and multiple smaller groups during the busiest times of the year. We also have a guesthouse in Okeechobee, FL that is convenient for our public land alligator hunters, as well as our waterfowlers.
How We Hunt The Everglades
South Florida is a hunter’s paradise with many opportunities to hunt year round. Most of our hunts for Osceola turkeys, alligators, white-tailed deer, hogs, and snipe take place on private land. We do offer public land alligator hunts for those luck enough to draw a tag as well as Lake Okeechobee duck hunts during both early teal and the regular waterfowl seasons. We access our properties using trucks, side by sides, swamp buggies, airboats, and mudboats and keep the walking to a minimum when possible. The ease of access to our ranches allows us to accommodate hunters of all abilities.
