Eastern View Outfitters is located in Plattsburgh, New York, situated in the Champlain Valley, along Lake Champlain. We offer unmatched New York and Vermont Spring Turkey hunts on thousands of acres of private farmland. The hunting grounds in NY are hugely agricultural with mixed forested areas between agricultural zones. The areas hunted in Vermont are largely forested tracts with smaller pastures and meadows creating a mosaic of Eastern Wild Turkey habitat. These diverse habitats, plenty of land access and thorough scouting ensure our guests the best possible chances at getting their trophy bird! We are strictly fair-chase, no feeders, or farm raised birds… We offer the most exciting and action packed Spring Turkey hunting in New York & Vermont–with un matched success rates! No other Guide Service in New York or Vermont Kills more Turkeys than we do!
Our business is built on return clients and we hold our repeat clientele for good reason. Our clients come as guests and leave as friends. We have maintained from the beginning a “hard work pays off’” mentality. We scout year round and scout daily during the season, making sure our guests are on birds each day of the hunt! And it shows!! We have a 100% opportunity rate on all Turkey hunts and only take a high percentage of Mature Trophy Longbeards each year, leaving plenty of younger birds for the following Spring. We do not over book our season/properties and only offer a limited number of hunts each season. This population management and business strategy ensures our guests plenty of birds from the first day to the last day of the season! Scroll through our Facebook page…. We harvest birds from the first day to the last day of the season!! Statistically, our best scoring birds usually come middle to late in the season… Food for thought!
Our guides are Licensed & Experienced professionals and they are glad to answer questions and provide informative details about calling and setup strategy to help you hone you skill set. We only use the best Guides in Northeast–Masters of their craft!
Reserve you hunts well in advance. We only book a limited amount of hunts each season to ensure our guests have a quality experience! No matter if you are here for opening day or the last day of the season, rest assured you will have birds to hunt! We book up almost a year in advance and have very limited availability due to repeat customers so call soon to reserve your hunt! We hope you do your research and then we are certain you will choose EVO for your next Turkey hunting experience! “No Guide in NY kills more Spring Turkeys–You can take that to the bank!” Sincerely, Capt Bryce Collins
Guided Turkey Hunting in New York & Vermont
Months before any of our Guests for the season have arrived Capt Bryce and the Guides are scouting and patterning birds on our hunting grounds. Hundreds of hours have been spent and thousands of miles in the trucks have been traveled to ensure one thing–Our Guest’s Success! Upon arrival our guests can expect Capt Bryce Collins to contact you and touch base the evening before each day to discuss transportation during the hunt and the location most convenient to meet the NYS licensed Hunting Guide. The hunt preparation will start in the pre-dawn hours… they will meet their guide, sign waivers, settle balances on the first morning of the hunt and go over your strategy for the day. Our guides will accompany you in the field before first light leading you to a pre-scouted area where a bird was Roosted and located the evening before. Guides then will aid you by showing you where to sit, calling in the Wild Turkeys and coaching you to the harvest of your Trophy bird! Our Guides are the best in the Northeast–Masters of the craft!
We will hunt on prime agricultural land as well as mixed hardwood forests teaming with wild turkeys. Our guided New York & Vermont turkey hunts conclude each day at noon or after you have filled your tags. New York is a 2 bird state, in which only one bird per hunter can be taken each day. Vermont is also a 2 bird state, but both birds may be taken by a hunter on the same day. After the hunt we will field dress your birds and provide you with tips and instruction on processing your game on your own if you want or we will do everything for you if you decide. Guides will field dress your harvest into skinless quarters. If you prefer to have it dressed skin on and whole like a store bought Turkey this can be arranged for a fee of $40. Meat is then vacuum sealed and frozen for your departure as well for no extra charge! Each day is action packed and it is not uncommon to hunt multiple areas each morning, we are serious about Turkey hunting–so come rested and prepared for the weather conditions! You will have the whole Afternoon to relax while the Guides are scouting, locating and Roosting birds to hunt for the following morning. Capt Bryce or your Guide will contact after scouting for the evening to once again go over transportation details and where to meet in the morning. We truly work for our Guests harder than anyone and value our nearly 100% return Clientele list! “Spring Turkey Hunt with us once and I promise you will not only leave as friends but as satisfied guests!” Sincerely, Capt Bryce Collins.

Youth season is a great way to get kids into hunting and have them be successful… No compettion from adults hunters… And it precedes the regular turkey season–when hunting pressure has not yet come into play. We hold a 100% Success rate on all Youth hunts!!! You heard right! Lets keep it going!
Nothing makes a kid want to be in the Outdoors more than an action packed successful first outing. Lets get them off the Video Games and Hooked on the Outdoors! You can’t put prices on memories that last a lifetime! The Youth hunter is allowed to take one bird during the special youth weekend season in NY state. I require a parent/guardian over 21 years of age to accompany the youth on our hunt. The parental guardian must sign a waiver release for the child and one for themselves prior to hunting. The parent guardian does not need a hunting license and is not permitted to carry a gun. The Youth Hunter needs a valid New York State hunting license and Turkey tags to participate. Please take a look at NYS DEC website for rules/regulations to help you answer any questions you might have.
