Rio Grande Turkey Hunting

Rio Grande Turkey Hunting

 

…turkey hunting at THE BOOMER RANCH is usually done only in Spring, due to the focus on Whitetail deer during fall and winter. Any turkeys harvested other than in Spring would need special approval
…any turkey harvested without a Guide would also need special approval
…bow and shotgun are the preferred weapons for hunting turkey, though some rifles may be approved

Typical hunting packages include the following:
-up to three days and two nights of accommodations at our hunters’ camp house
-up to four hunts, typically the afternoon of day #1, the morning and afternoon hunts of day #2 and the morning of day #3(only if necessary)

***Important! For those hunters shooting a shotgun, please check your choke prior to hunting. What works best at our Ranch is a full choke with #4, #5 or #6 shot. You do not want to shoot a second bird by mistake, only because your choke was too moderate. Shooting a hen by mistake is also illegal.
