A Typical Day

At High Prairie Lodge and Outfitters we offer to spring turkey hunting packages. The first is a Do-It-Yourself Turkey Hunt.

Outfitter Dave Ciani will take you on an evening scouting mission to put a flock of birds to bed for the next morning. Once you have a lay of the land and several big toms put to bed, you will be off on your own to chase these birds around the hills for the next 3 days.

The second hunt is a Fully Guided spring turkey hunt. With this hunt, upon your 2:00 pm arrival at our camp, you can relax and get your guns or bows sited in for the next day’s hunt. Dave will go over with you a full gear check and make sure you are ready for the next day’s hunt. Before the hunt Dave will also go over in detail everything you can expect during the hunt. Then for the next 3 days you will experience an unbelievable, fully guided spring turkey hunt. Dave has the best blinds for his bow hunters and has the expertise that will put numerous Merriam gobblers in range for you until you are successful.
