Hunt With Us
Florida Outdoor Experience offers 100% FAIR CHASE hunts for wild hog, Osceola Turkey, Whitetail Deer and Alligators. Just outside the small town of Chiefland, Florida the hunts center around Drummond Pond, situated within earshot of the famous Suwannee River. Pine stands, oak hammocks, pastures and prairies all converge on this hunter's paradise, creating endless hunting opportunities for guests.
A limited number of hunts are booked each season on Florida Outdoor Experience's properties, giving hunters high-success rates and the opportunity of harvesting quality game. Our farms are professionally managed and maintained throughout the year and it shows! From the moment you drive in the gates, you will recognize that we value and care for our land. Food plots, prescribed burns, habitat enhancement, supplemental feeding, mineral sites, and predator control are all parts of our game-management program. We take great pride in all our properties and provide a quality habitat for prize turkeys and deer. Many of our bucks have scored over the Florida Buck Registry minimum of 100 inches; and our Owner Gray Drummond harvested the 16th largest Osceola on one of our farms. Come see Florida the way it's meant to be. You'll be glad you did!
Florida Outdoor Experience has absolutely some of the best Osceola Turkey hunts available in Florida's Big Bend Region. We spend countless hours scouting for big gobblers, rotating food plots, and improving our natural habitat to offer hunters the best possible experience. ALL our hunts are fully guided and video hunts are available. Make sure to plan early, our turkey hunts are book-up fast!
Drummond Pond also hosts a healthy, coastal whitetail deer population and offers opportunities for both archery and gun hunters. Hunters are amazed by the quality of the deer on our properties . Hunters sometimes spot as many as 30 deer on a single hunt and often encounter multiple shooters! We have a 8-point minimum on all of our properties so our bucks have time to grow and mature. All deer packages also include a doe tag so we can keep our buck-to-doe ratio balanced. Hunts are fully guided and we provide safe, comfortable shooting houses, ground blinds, ladder stands, and lock-ons that are set up on fresh sign, travel corridors, or one of the many food plots and feeders strategically placed throughout the farms. Our experienced guides scout the area before before your arrival and up to date Trail-Cam pics are always available.
As a Florida Outdoor Experience guest, enjoy incredible hog hunting on our farms. Our hogs range from small-meat hogs to boars to 300 pound trophy boars. We DO NOT trap hogs, release or "cut" boars on any of our properties. Our hunts are the REAL THING! We hold hogs on our farms throughout the year thanks to our turkey and deer supplemental feed programs. There is NO CLOSED SEASON on wild hogs in Florida; so whether you are here to hunt deer, pursue gators, or chase Toms, you can enjoy great hog hunting. Add a wild hog hunt, a favorite among our archery hunters, to ANY package. Choose to hunt by spot & stalk, ground blind or tree stand, with high-hog success.
Our fare-chase hunts are run out of our well appointed Drummond Pond Camp, while turkey hunts and trophy hunts are hosted from the historic, all inclusive Farmhouse at Rocky Hammock Preserve, which has been featured on the pages of both Architectural Digest and Country Living. For your convenience, we offer a wide range of hunting packages; and we are happy to design a package specifically to meet your individual or groups needs. Bass fishing on Drummond Pond is included with all our hunts; while thermal hog hunts, bow fishing, alligator hunts, predator hunts or saltwater/freshwater fishing are available package add-ons.
Easton Bowhunting TV, LL Bean, FoxPro's Furtakers, National Geographic, The Break, Predator Nation, Woodhaven's Pure Turkey TV, Thompson Center Arms and the DIY Network have all filmed on our farms. Come hunt where the pros do, with Florida Outdoor Experience!
