Okeechobee is more than just a wild hog hunting trip and trophy alligator hunting trip. It’s about the whole Florida hunting experience. Whether it is stalking a wild boar, sitting in a blind Osceola turkey hunting, or maybe traveling high speed out on a air boat trophy alligator hunting.



 Lake Okeechobee is the most “famous big bass lake” in Florida, well-known for the quantity and quality of bass the lake produces. This reputation on Lake Okeechobee has continued for many years as producing the biggest and best largemouth bass fishing in Central Florida. On Okeechobee the two primary ways to fish are with artificial lures or wild shiners.



Okeechobee’s facilities are the ultimate in shooting and gunsmith destinations in South and Central Florida.  They provide amenities such as rifle and pistol ranges, 5 stand sporting clays fields, trap and skeet fields as well as shooting galleries.
