Turkey Trot Lodge 1987~2015 

 ~ A Tioga County Treasure for Wild Turkey Hunts, Weddings, Dining & Celebrations ~

  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  "HUNTING LODGE"  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  "TASTE of TURKEY TROT"  and check out how we can make your special event a memorable one.

  At Turkey Trot we are constantly exploring new and exciting ways to entertain our guests.  We  released two live DVD/CD Sets (filmed here) featuring 1970's country rockers............ The New Riders of the Purple Sage and The Commander Cody Band........  Please scroll down for more information!   Feel free check out our "All-Star Celebrity Hunt" link below for a nostalgic look back into Turkey Trot's early days!

  'Re-Break' @ Turkey Trot 

  Here's a look at an original oil painting that was captured during our Retro-Hunt with the National Wild Turkey Federation in October. The artist Ron Kleiber www.ronkleiberstudio.com mentioned that this computer image does not do justice to the real deal!  

   New York’s 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.

  Wildlife artist 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!
