Our Texas turkey hunts have grown in popularity in recent years. WSI currently has a tremendous land base with properties located in the heart of the best Texas turkey hunting regions.
It is no wonder that over 75% of our Texas turkey hunting business are repeat customers, as our success rates every year are near 100% on hunters taking at least one Rio Grande gobbler, and most hunters take two.
One of the key ingredients to quality, high success spring turkey hunting is the ability to have access to large land masses of quality turkey habitat. We have it. Annually, our Texas turkey hunts take place on approximately ten different turkey hunting properties totaling near 100,000 acres. We restrict the number of mature gobblers we take off of a given property, and we adjust the harvest numbers annually on our Texas turkey hunts based on our turkey population’s reproductive
We offer two different Texas turkey hunting packages. Our most common turkey hunting packages is an all-inclusive arrangement that provides you with guide (2x1), meals, lodging, airport shuttle (conditional), and game care. Our Rio Grande turkey hunts include one bird, but most hunts allow you to take additional birds for an additional fee.
We also offer a limited number of “unassisted” Texas turkey hunts where hunters essentially do their own thing. On most of these hunts, hunters either camp out or stay in town in a motel. This is a no frills deal, but the turkey hunting is great, with hunters enjoying high success hunts.
Texas Turkey Hunting Licenses are unlimited, over the counter licenses, where no drawing or lottery is required. Nonresident spring turkey hunting licenses are $126, unless you purchased a general non-resident license during the previous fall, and then you only pay for a $7.00 Upland Bird Stamp Validation. There are no age restrictions in Texas, and youth licenses are only $7.00 for a Texas turkey hunting license.
Our Texas spring turkey hunting season essentially runs from the third weekend of March through the second weekend of May. Our southern Texas turkey hunting zone starts two weeks prior to our north zone and ends two weeks earlier than the north zone.
We offer a unique and fun spring turkey hunting - combo hunts package where you can hunt turkeys, hogs, and possibly javelina on the same hunts. These hunts normally take place in South Texas and include one gobbler and two feral hogs, or one gobbler, one feral hog and one javelina.
