  Spring Gobbler -We will have 100-150 gobblers located through out over 50,000 acres which we hunt. Our guides will roost birds in the evening with you. In the morning we will attempt to call a bird into gun range. Over the last 37 years, the guides here at Turkey Trot have collectively called well over 2,500 gobblers to the gun!

  Fall Turkey Season – Is a real treat at Turkey Trot Acres. It’s our most successful hunt because we hunt with well-trained turkey dogs. We’ve teamed up with John Byrne and Son from Lowry Virginia, breeders of the finest turkey dogs in the country. Watching our Appalachian Turkey Dogs bust a flock of turkeys and then calling the birds to the blind is a truly unique experience.

  Gun Hunting for Whitetail Deer – Candor NY consistently ranks in the top ten townships in the NYS deer kill. Hunting is limited to rifles, shotguns and muzzleloaders. All deer hunts are fully guided and hunting is done from elevated or ground level stands.
