Tag It Worldwide/Jeff Budz has 35+ years of hunting, guiding, writing, filming and pro-staffing experience with the outdoor world’s best of the best. Because this isn't just a paycheck to Jeff, it's a way of life, you won't ever find another guide more adamant about you achieving your goals.
After winning the 2015 World Turkey Hunting Championship, completing 109 Grand Slams to date, 500 Personal Turkeys under his belt and a self-guided Spring Super Slam of Longbeards out of all 49 states, Jeff Budz is arguably the best Turkey Hunter in the World and should be your first call for an Osceola or Grand Slam Turkey Hunt.
"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."
"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."
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."
