I would like to thank you for choosing Silver Lake Preserve as your hunting destination of choice. Thanks to you, our season was very successful and we look forward to seeing you again this coming year.

Quail season begins October 1, 2018 and runs through April 20, 2019. We are busy conditioning dogs and preparing courses for your return. Quail hunts for next season are being reserved now and I encourage you to book early, especially to include a stay in our historic lodge.

Saturdays in February ushers in our popular Pheasant Tower Shoots. We have increased the number of shoots to three in 2019 and with enough interest will add a fourth. Two are already booked and only nine stations remain available for the third shoot. Tower shoots include individual stations and a BBQ luncheon. Reserve a station or gather a group together and join us for a unique experience.

Reserve Your Next Hunt

Silver Lake Preserve hosted another successful SpringGobbler season and we anticipate the same for next year. Only a few available openings remain for the first and second weekends of March2018. Check-in for the 2.5-day hunt begins on Friday evening with lodging and all meals provided. Guides are encouraged and available upon request. If you harvest your gobbler early, you have the opportunity to hog hunt for the remainder of your visit.

For a unique hunting experience, we offer true adventure via American Alligator hunts. These exclusive hunts cover the entire Lykes Ranch and are strictly spot and stalk. Hunts include lodging, meals, guide, and transportation of your harvested alligator to the processor.

The lodge at Silver Lake Preserve is very popular. We have something for everyone, whether it be scheduled hunts, family gatherings or just experiencing old Florida at its best. Our family-style meals, wobble house, rifle range, expanded nature walks and comfortable accommodations make this a destination all its own.

If you are interested in quail, pheasant, trophy bucks, alligators or turkey, Silver Lake Preserve is your hunting destination. I encourage you book now to reserve your preferred dates and I look forward to seeing you in the coming season. Thank you again for choosing Silver Lake Preserve!
