Turkey Hunting

Image module

Butler Farms Outdoor Adventures offers Spring Turkey Hunting beginning in Mid-April. You will find the same courteous service and traditional values as with our whitetail deer hunting. Our guests enjoy the freedom of DIY hunting on their own tract of land. Hunters enjoy the privacy and quality that our beautiful farms have to offer. You may check in at 12:00 noon the day before to scout your site. All hunts are non-guided (DIY).

Whitetail hunters from the fall 19-20 season
have reported high numbers of turkey at Butler Farms!
