A Tioga County Treasure for Wild Turkey Hunts, Weddings, 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 twenty-eight 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 know how to hunt! If you would like more information on
"America’s Legendary Turkey Hunting Hangout" please click here
for all the details.
Turkey Trot 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 such as
Wedding Receptions, reunions or Bar-B-Ques. Visit a

Here's a look at an original oil painting that was captured during
our Retro-Hunt with the National Wild Turkey Federation in October.

that this computer image
does not do justice to the real deal!
first modern wild turkey hunting season commenced back in the
fall of 1959. Spring hunts didn’t begin until 1968. Pete and
Sherry Clare of Turkey Trot Acres Hunting lodge in Tioga County,
NY wanted to honor that inaugural hunt 50 years later. In
October of 2009 guests for the 18th Annual NWTF Fall Classic
were encouraged to participate in a Retro-Hunt featuring our
traditional Appalachian Turkey Dogs. No camouflage, blinds or
decoys were permitted, hunters were encouraged wear old-style
hunting togs and tote vintage shotguns to help create some real
nostalgia during the event.
Ron Kleiber captures the excitement of a classic re-break as our
canine hunting companion scatters a group of assembled wild
turkeys on a beautiful autumn afternoon.......We hope to have
limited edition prints available this spring!
