Question:

How many acres do you have to hunt?

It’s not how many Acres available to hunt; it’s how many Turkeys are on the acres that you hunt, that counts.


Question:

What is your success rate?

Answer:

Zero, I don’t hunt; your success will depend on your ability sit quietly and call softly, as well as your ability to hit what you aim at. 


Question:

Do you know about how many Osceola Turkey you have at your farm?

Answer:

Not really: but I usually have between 50 and 100 in my cages, and I expect that there are that many or more roaming the farm property.


Question:

Are the Turkeys at your farm “Pure Breads”?

Answer:

I don’t really know, I don’t have any papers on them but they look like Osceola’s and they live in the right part of Florida.  The N.W.T.F. biologist say that they are Osceola’s. A good guess would be that they are Osceola’s. See page: https://allisonfamilyfarm.com/osceola-turkeys-for-sale/
