Spring Turkey Hunting in NY, VT, NH, MA & ME (May-June)2018-11-04T12:59:45+00:00

Eastern View Outfitters is located in Plattsburgh, New York, situated in the Champlain Valley, along Lake Champlain. We offer unmatched Spring Turkey hunts in New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts & Maine from May 1 through early June. Hunts are conducted 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, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine are largely forested tracts with smaller pastures, meadows and agriculture 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! So don’t worry about when your hunt is scheduled early or late in the season…. It does not matter, I promise! Come ready to hunt and realize we have the ground and the experience to be just as successful from the first day to the last day of Spring. A true testament of our outfit and our work ethic!

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 the Northeast–Masters of their craft! Some are decorated competition Turkey callers and others are seasoned & professional Turkey Killers! As I have heard someone say before “I only run with killers!” This pretty much sums it up! We have become the go-to Outfitter in the Northeast for many seasoned Turkey nuts like myself chasing the US Superslam. With a huge reference list and a great knowledge of what it takes to be successful I promise you will get the best possible chances while hunting with us. Booking multiple states to hunt in with us has become a common occurrence with many of our guests. 

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 Guided Spring Turkey hunting experience! “No Guide service in NY has higher Success rates on Spring Turkeys–You can take that to the bank!” Sincerely, Capt Bryce Collins

“My nephew and I are from Virginia, we had the pleasure of turkey hunting with Bryce Collins and Eastern View Outfitters for five days in New York and Vermont in this last week. These guys have the focus and passion you want when looking for someone to go hunting with. We hit it off immediately and had our groove on. The weather was less than ideal two of the five days we hunted, but we still got it done and did not give the birds an inch slack. We harvested 7 Birds in 5 days of hunting and had a very successful trip! I have hunted all over the country and these guys are a cut way above most you will ever have the pleasure of going into the woods with. If you are looking to book a trip to the North country don’t over look these guys. As we say in the south ” they’s good people”

Jeff Hoke, Virginia

“My son Kyle and I had the opportunity to go on a Fully guided youth turkey hunt with Bryce. Bryce donated the hunt to his local NWTF Lake Champlain chapter, which he volunteers for. With his combined knowledge of the area we hunted and his expertise in turkey hunting, within approximately 2 1/2 hours of setting up he had called in 5 hens and 3 Mature Tom’s. Kyle bagged a 20 lb Longbeard with a 9 1/4 inch beard that day. It was awesome to share that moment and to see the delight in Kyle’s face when he took his first bird. Thank you Bryce for a memory of a lifetime.”

Kevin LaMora, New York

“Fantastic Wild Turkey hunting! My friend and I hunt turkeys all over the country. For the last three days we have hunted with Eastern View Outfitters around Plattsburgh, NY. This has been one of the best if not the best hunts we have ever had. Everything is first rate. Our guide was fantastic. We both harvested our two gobbler NY limits, 4 birds between the two of us. Beautiful country, fantastic guides, and incredible turkey hunting. You will not be disappointed!”

Stan Jones, Tennessee

“After punching our 4 tags and limiting out….Ben and I are already planning our next trip and are looking forward to hunting with Eastern View Outfitters again. I would trust them with your fishing and goose hunting as well. Bryce is very passionate about what he does and wants the best experience for you! Looking at the Eastern View Outfitters FB page in May is like scrolling through the obituaries of the local turkeys!”

Guided Turkey Hunting in New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts & Maine 

Starts 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…  where you will meet your guide for the 3 day hunt. We will sign liability waivers, settle balances on the first morning of the hunt and go over your strategy for the day. Our guides will accompany and lead you in the field before first light taking 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 some of the best in the Northeast–Masters of the craft! We highly encourage US Superslam guys to call us and call early! Captain Bryce has plenty of hardcore US Superslam references of hunters from the past years to provide upon requests. No doubt if you are in pursuit of the coveted US Superslam you are well connected and have already asked around… You are looking at this website for a reason. You’re in the right place my friends. We are typically booking a year in advance. Rest assured you will get the opportunities that you’re paying for! 

We will hunt on prime agricultural land as well as mixed hardwood forests teaming with wild turkeys. Our fully guided Spring turkey hunts conclude each day at noon or after you have filled your tags. We only offer fully Guided Turkey hunts–No Semi-Guided packages are offered. We will not mix parties so either you will hunt one-on-one with your Guide or with the hunting partner you brought with you and your Guide. 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 (two breasts & two leg quarters) which is included in the hunting package price. If you prefer to have it dressed skin on and whole like a store bought Turkey this is an extra charge that can be arranged for an additional fee of $40. Your meat in either case will then be 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 and setups each morning. We are serious about our Turkey hunting and expect our guests to come ready to hunt–so come rested each morning 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. Many people ask if they can roost birds with the guides and we understand it is part of the hunt… but we have a system and do not allow guests to roost birds with us. Get your rest and fuel your body for the following day so that you are at your best. Capt Bryce or your Guide will contact you after scouting each evening of the hunt to once again go over transportation details, where to meet and arrange your pickup from the lodging for the following morning. We truly work for our Guests harder than anyone and value our nearly 100% return Clientele list! Captain Bryce and Guides are some of the most intense hard core Turkey hunting Guides in the Northeast–Rest assured they want you to punch both tags more than you even want to punch them. This is why you are booking with EVO! “Spring Turkey Hunt with us once and I promise you will not only leave as friends but as satisfied guests!” Sincerely, Capt Bryce Collins.

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.
