A Hidden Treasure in the Finger Lakes Region of NY for Wild Turkey Hunts, Weddings, Bar-B-Que & Brick Oven Dining!.

  The Lodge at Turkey Trot Acres in Candor, New York has earned a national reputation as “America’s Premier Wild Turkey Hunting Destination”. This honor was earned by thirty years 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 just know how to hunt! If you would like more information on “America’s Legendary Turkey Hunting Hangout” please click here HUNTING LODGE  for all the details.

Our Good Friends…..A.K.A. “The North Carolina Mafia” ~ Calvin and Richard Phillips, Jack and Jay Rich ~ Hailing from Haw River, NC ~ These Gents all tagged out the following morning with four more mature gobblers! Only at Turkey Trot!

  Turkey Trot Lodge is an all-seasons operation, our hunting trips involve the months of May, October and November. During the remaining months we are often the destination for folks celebrating  special occasions like WEDDING RECEPTIONS.  For other private parties such as reunions, company bar-b-ques or pizza parties please visit a TASTE of TURKEY TROT and check out how we can make your special event a memorable one.  To learn more about ‘Forno-Bravo’ wood fired pizza ovens and our ‘Apizza Schools’ please visit our EARTH~WOOD~FIRE site.
