About Osceola Turkey Hunts
Welcome from Jim and Jane Seymour. Our Osceola Turkey hunting facility was established in 1982 and is one of the oldest Florida Osceola Turkey establishments. They run their turkey hunting operation on their 2600 acre working cattle ranch, the 2- (two bar) Jim is a native Floridian, born and raised in Central Florida. Hunting and fishing has been a part of his entire life. He started turkey hunting with his Father at the age of nine (9). Through his youth and adulthood hunting with his father and friends, he established long lasting relationships with turkey hunters from both the United States and around the world.
In 1970 he moved to Wyoming where he became a guide and outfitter in Southern Wyoming and Dubois, Wyoming. In the Dubois area he guided hunters for deer antelope elk prairie dogs, and turkeys. These hunts included pack trips on horses and mules. In southern Wyoming where Wyoming Game and Fish had recently established Merriam’s turkey’s, Jim was lucky enough to draw one of the first licenses along with some friends who he taught to call and hunt turkeys in that area. In recent years his western hunts have included mule deer, antelope, elk, prairie dogs and wild free ranging buffalo on the Crow Indian Reservation.
