Phil pointed out that the owners recently put in a 1.2 mile nature walk, saying that some of the wives who accompany their husbands for the weekend might not be interested in hunting, but many still want to get out and enjoy nature. Arriving back at the lodge, Nic drove off to a small air conditioning building where he returned a few minutes later with bags of cleaned quail for the hunters. Quail season runs through March 31, but you can also schedule pheasant, alligator, trophy buck and hog hunts. Turkey season is almost fully booked. Prices vary on the season, type of hunt, amount of people and length of stay. Overnight accommodations start at $150 per person and that includes dinner and breakfast the next morning. The lodge is also available for meetings and corporate events. An outdoor shooting range is also available for shooters to practice their firearms. There is a 25-yard pistol range and a 100-1000 yard rifle range. Shotguns are available for rent and ammunition and shells are available for purchase. Eye and ear protection are highly recommended and can be purchased on site. If you’d like to experience the beauty of Silver Lake Preserve, give Phil a call at (863) 273-7712.
