Land - Your Rio Turkey hunt of a lifetime will take place on 25,000 acres of prime turkey hunting land in North Central Kansas. Hunt by sitting and calling in one of our ground blinds or by use of spot and stock techniques.
Calling - We will use different calling techniques to bring in the birds. Yelping, clucking, purring, cackling, and more. If you have experience calling and would like, you can call your own bird in.
Decoys - We set up with decoys and also set up without decoys.
Scouting - Scouting is a very important part of turkey hunting. Our experienced guides know where the birds are roosting and know where they like to travel at all hours of the day.
Weapons - You may shoot your bird with either a shotgun or by using archery equipment.
