  For thirty-four years, Turkey Trot Acres in Candor, New York has earned a national reputation as one of “America’s Premier Wild Turkey Hunting Destinations”. This honor was earned by over three decades of hard work and sticking to our original game plan… To provide quality hunting, lodging and dining for our guests. We are proud of the fact that all of the hunting at Turkey Trot is the “Real Deal”. We hunt under strictly fair chase conditions, no game feeders, no high fences, or pen raised gobblers. You will find thousands of acres of prime wildlife habitat and guides that know how to hunt!  For more information on ‘America’s Legendary Turkey Hunting Hangout’.  Click here HUNTING LODGE  for all the details.

  Turkey Trot Lodge is a family run, all-seasons operation.  During fair weather we are often the destination for folks celebrating special occasions like WEDDING RECEPTIONS.  

  For other celebrations such as Reunions, Company BBQs, Fund Raising Events or Brick-Oven Parties visit a TASTE of TURKEY TROT.

Jonathan Ripic of ‘Black Bridge Media’ for the great job editing and capturing the highlights from over two-dozen outdoor shows recorded here over the last three decades……….

  A very special thanks also to our long-time guides Ed Ripic, Andy Munson, Billy Bob Kern and Steve Lecorchick for their comments and contributions in the making of this video.  I could ramble on forever about the people and activities in this footage but I’ll just let the video speak for itself!
