"This was Beth’s first Osceola and we will never forget our hunt with Jeff. He is not only a great guy, but a great hunter and we look forward to our next trip with him in the woods."

—George & Beth Thornton - CEO of the NWTF

Jeff is a great friend and a die-hard turkey hunter. As the undisputed King of Slams, he’s like the Lance Armstrong of the turkey woods (without the steroids, of course). If you like to give ‘em all you’ve got, Jeff is the guide for you.”

—Matt Lindler, editor,  Turkey Country magazine

"I've successfully hunted with Jeff for 15 years for WhiteTail, Mule Deer, Elk and of course a Grand Slam. He never ceases to amaze me with his energy and professionalism! He is not just a guide, but has become a good friend as well."

—Babe Winkelman

"I've known Jeff for the last 6 years and he never ceases to amaze me. I traveled with him to harvest my first Single Season Grand Slam and it’s an experience of a lifetime."

—Rodney Barreto
Chairman of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

"I hunted 3 states in 5days with Jeff, killed 5 turkeys, and blew at least 3 times that number of shots on birds at 20 yards or less. (I'd lie about this except that there were witnesses.) 'Obsessed' doesn’t really do justice to Jeff's desire and ability to put a client on turkeys. He’s one of those guys tuned into a turkey frequency unavailable to the rest of us. If he hears a gobble, finds a track, or sees a feather, he will put you on that bird. I almost came to feel sorry for the turkeys we encountered. They weren’t getting past Jeff. Their only hope was to have me behind the trigger."
- Bill Heavey, Outdoor Writer, Field & Stream

I've know Jeff for 15 years, gone on countless hunts and trips with Jeff and he has never let me down.  He is definitely,  ONE of a kind!........

"I've guided and booked countless hunts, so I know what it takes to get the job done. I hunted Osceolas with Jeff for several years and he always hit it out of the park!"

World Class Hunting Experiences with Champion Turkey Hunter Jeff Budz

About Tag It Worldwide

I've been in the outdoor world for the past 30+ years chasing many a North American animals as well as African Plains Game, BUT my true passion is pursuing the Grand Slam of Turkeys. I have harvested well over 400 birds, was the first to have gotten a self-guided Longbeard from all 49 states, completed 98 Grand Slams to date and won the 2015 World Turkey Hunting Championship. With all that said, my most memorable moments have come when I've been there to see countless others complete their Grand Slam.

I do hope that my success, experience, professionalism, knowledge of the outdoors and overall attitude about life will leave you with a smile on your face and pictures of your trophy in hand.  

So, it comes down to trust before you send your money to a stranger for your hunt that is months away. All I can ask you to do is to check out my References and Google my name.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you might have.

THANKS and God Bless you!!

  • Hunting Tips from the Turkey Freaks
    Field & Stream
    "Statistically, Jeff Budz is the world’s biggest turkey freak. At 47 he is closing in on his 400th turkey and has registered more Grand Slams with the NWTF than any hunter in history. The 61 slams tallied by the late and legendary Dick Kirby were once thought to be as untouchable as Roger Maris’s 61 home runs. But once Budz got his first in 1994, he registered quadruple slams (16 turkeys each calendar year) from 1999 through the present. He now has 91 and isn’t slowing down."

  • Self Searve Slam
    Outdoor Life
    "It took a while, but you finally called in and killed your first wild turkey. Since then, you've become more adept at filling a tag or two each season; you think you have this turkey-hunting thing figured out. Now it's time to up the challenge and perhaps escape your usual haunt in search of greener pastures-maybe ones where Rios, Merriams and Osceolas roam. You want a Grand Slam.

    Jeff Budz, a self-proclaimed turkey fanatic from Illinois who now resides in Florida, is the quintessential do-it-yourself Grand Slammer."
