Florida Osceola Turkey Hunting Season: 3rd Saturday in March through the 4th Sunday in April every spring.
Information on Osceola Turkeys The Osceola Turkey (The Florida wild Turkey) is similar to the eastern but smaller, darker in color, and are only found in the peninsula of Florida. They are named after the famous Seminole Chief, who led his tribe against the Americans in a 20-year war beginning in 1835.
Notice on the map below that we are right in the heart of the wild Osceola range. We find a lot of people think Osceola's are just found in Southern Florida. The fact is, there is fantastic Osceola hunting in North Central Florida. View the image to see where God's Country Outfitters is located.

Florida Alligator Hunting
The great thing about alligator hunting is the diversity. In Florida, you can hunt day or night with a variety of weapons. If you choose to use a rifle, crossbow, harpoon, or archery, these prehistoric monsters always make it a challenge! Whether you hunt day or night regardless of your weapon choice, you will enjoy the adventure of a lifetime!
Florida Alligator Hunting Options
Multi-Night Alligator Hunts (Aug. 15- Nov. 1)
These fully guided wild alligator hunts can only be done at night from boats using harpoons, crossbows, spear guns, and fishing poles. This by far, is the most exciting action-packed way to hunt wild Florida alligators. Most people love the boat ride just as much as the hunt. If you like action-packed hunting all night with never a dull moment, this is the hunt for you. If you are the laid-back type of hunter, ask about our day hunts. Whatever you wish, we can help you check gator hunting off your bucket list!
Alligator Hunting at Night
Although night hunts for Alligators in Florida can be more challenging than a day hunt - adrenaline levels do increase. Spotlights are used to scan lakes and swamps for giant gators and the lack of light creates an eerie excitement to the gator hunt. There is something about the dark waters and what lurks beneath that makes this hunt exciting and a little unnerving at the same time. Weapon selection is up to the hunter. We will offer some suggestions and additional details about the hunt before you select a weapon. Night gator hunts normally produce larger gators. Night hunts offer the added benefit of a reprieve from the Florida daytime heat!

American Alligator Facts Although male alligators in Florida can become quite large, female alligators rarely exceed 10 feet in length. The Florida state record for a gator is a 14 foot 3-1/2 inch male alligator from Lake Washington and the Florida weight record for an alligator is 1,043 pounds. Our alligator hunts will probably not produce trophy gators of this size, but you never know!
THERMOREGULATION Alligators are cold-blooded and they need external sources, heat & cold, to regulate their body temperature. Florida alligators may maintain their body temperature by moving to warm or cool water areas or basking in the sun on a clear day. In Florida, Alligators become more active at times when temps are 82° to 92°F. Florida alligators often stop eating when temperatures drop below 70° F and they become somewhat sluggish when temps drop below 55° F. During the winter months in Florida, alligators are mostly dormant and can be found in dens or “alligator holes” but they will emerge at times to bask in the sun.

The Hunting Lodge
Our spacious Florida hunting lodge is ranch-style, with an open layout and roomy feel. As you enter the main lodge you have a large dining room area to your right and a kitchen to the left. As you pass through the dining area it opens up into a very large and open living room area with a 75" screen television. Plenty of room for you and your group to relax after an exciting day of hunting.
The bunk area sleeps up to five and is surrounded by an array of classic mounts. You'll fall asleep dreaming of the trophies you came to add to your collection!
Upon arrival, you can head to the range and site in your rifles before the next day’s hunt.
Dining & Activities on the Ranch
After the hunt, why not enjoy your stay and relax? You can sit by the fire pit and reflect on the day…maybe tell some good hunting stories among friends.
The ladies that help do all the cooking are true southern ladies who do not believe food should come in a box, so I hope you enjoy some good home cooking and lots of it!
We look forward to hunting with you,
