Rich Biggers writes, “I had a great time hunting Gould’s in Chihuahua Mexico with my guides Parker and Darr Colburn. The entire experience was just like I watched in your YouTube videos. Parker and Darr went above and beyond to make sure the entire camp tagged out. I saw turkeys on every sit and was able to harvest 2 toms on my 3rd sit. I would absolutely recommend Jay Scott Outdoors/Gouldsturkeyhunt.com to anyone!”

Rick Sweeney writes, "Thanks for such an outstanding experience chasing the Goulds Turkeys in the rugged countryside of Mexico. Everything was excellent from the travel, the amazing local food, lodging, and guides that even when not hunting were a constant service to all the hunters. I would highly recommend Jay Scott Outdoors doing this trip for anyone. Lots of turkeys and never a concern with safety! Thanks again"


Noah Watkins writes, “Jay, thanks again for a great trip! Birds were plentiful and enjoyable to chase. Travel and hotel was well organized. For me, this trip met all expectations. Nate our guide was a pleasure to spend our hunt with. He did a great job. Gracious host with a beautiful ranch. We look forward to a return trip in the future.”

Brett Grim writes, "Such a beautiful place! The scenery and a ranch rich in history! Hearing all the stories from the Ranch owner was a Treat... Where we hunted there was NO shortage of birds...plenty of opportunities... The authentic Mexican food was amazing.... I want to add, that I have hunted with many different Outfitters all over the world, Outfitters are notorious for not returning messages or leaving questions unanswered... Jay Scott and his crew always promptly responded to any question or concerns quickly, efficiently and timely... They were in constant contact and kept us up to date and informed every step along the way, even on our trip home... I can not say enough about how much I appreciated that... Thanks a bunch guys for a great hunt and experience...."

Mark Casper writes, "To say I was excited about this hunt is an understatement. Hunting Goulds in Mexico with the anticipation of completing my Royal Slam, my nerves were high. Jay and his team were absolutely phenomenal to work with, clear communication leading up to and throughout the entire trip. Mexico, the beautiful ranch we hunted, turkeys galore, the fantastic guides, amazing food... every detail was top-notch. This was a trip of lifelong memories and new friendships, thanks to Jay Scott and his crew!"

Steve Bemke writes, "Absolutely exceeded my expectations. The hunting was phenomenal in some of the most amazing landscapes I've hunted turkeys. Jay Scott and his staff were so great to work with. This was my first hunt outside of the US and they made the entire experience smooth and comfortable through great communication before, during and after the hunt. I can't say enough about how great Jay and his team are, in handling the logistics of this hunt and making sure we were prepared and had everything we needed to focus on and enjoy an awesome hunting adventure I will never forget."

Nathan Hunt writes, “My testimonial: If you’ve never witnessed a sunrise glimmering through the tail fan of a strutting Goulds, your journey as a turkey hunter isn’t complete. Jay Scott and his team have a tremendous operation - Truly a turkey hunter’s paradise!”

Catie Hunt writes, “we’ve hunted with Jay Scott Outdoors multiple times now. The scenery is incredible and the turkey hunting is spectacular. Words cannot describe how beautiful it was to watch the entire flock pitch off the cliff faces above into our setup in the canyon. I’ll remember these hunts forever!”

John Drummond writes. "So many positive things that I could say about our trip, but I’ll summarize with the following: Our experience with Jay Scott Outdoors was 5 stars. Our guides, Phil and Blake, worked hard before, during, and after the hunt to make sure our trip was a success. JSO definitely under-promised and over delivered!  I want to share with you one of my favorite pictures from our trip. I love this picture because it reminds me of how Phil would meticulously fuss over every bird to make sure we got good photos. Just great attention to detail in all aspects of his job. I have so much respect for Phil and all that he does!

Lyle and Wesley Padgett write, “our experience with Jay Scott and his team was outstanding. The guides are exceptional and do all they can to make sure you have a successful hunt. From booking your travel to getting through customs, they help and walk you through the entire process. We highly recommend them if you are looking for an outfitter to pursue Goulds Turkeys.”

Kenny Dorsch writes, “Can’t say enough about how great of a time we had. I loved my guide Jose Luis! We can’t wait to come back and do it all over again with his crew. Beautiful ranch, amazing food, great birds….couldn’t have asked for a better trip”

Lowe Morrison writes, “thanks to Jay Scott and Phil Cramer for a fantastic third Gould’s hunt with your company. Phil Cramer pulled out every stop to get us all tagged out. The ranch was gorgeous and I have never seen that much turkey sign in my life. This hunting experience is 5 stars all the way and I’m already planning on my fourth trip.”

Doug Reed writes, “Royal slam complete.What an amazing experience. Just spent 5 days in Chihuahua Mexico hunting a Goulds turkey. I can’t thank my guide, Jose Luis, enough for an amazing hunt. He was on top of everything. He knew the land and birds extremely well. After getting to the ranch, he looked at a few trail cam pics and says “we have to sit here tonight“. I tagged out in about 2 and a half hours on my first sit. Then I got to spend the next couple of days talking with the ranch owner and exploring the 600,000 acre ranch while the other hunters got to fill their tags.

I have to say, Goulds Turkey Hunt is a top notch guide service. Everything was in order from the time you get off the plane until you get back on the plane to go home. The ranch I stayed at was beyond my expectations. The food and service was absolutely amazing. If you’re looking to do a Goulds hunt, this is the way to go.”

James “Hunter” Bass writes, “Can’t say enough good things about your operation from traveling and getting down there the communication with guides and transportation from the airport everything was perfect the food was great Kade was a phenomenal guide you can tell he has a true passion for goulds hunting and it’s not just a job he puts a lot of effort into making it a safe and successful hunt can’t wait to get back down there in the near future to hunt with him again.”

B. Jayson Henry writes, “I just returned from an epic turkey hunting adventure with Jay Scott. Everyone in our party of six got their Birds and we were able to fully enjoy the experience in the rugged beauty of Chihuahua Mexico. This beautiful turkey completed my Royal slam and I couldn't imagine doing it any other way that was Jay Scott and his group of guides. Thanks so much for the Memories.”

Chris Bishop writes, “Although Jay Scott’s reputation precedes himself, I can’t say enough about how amazing my trip for Goulds Turkey was. From beginning to end we had turkeys all over us. The food was amazing, the lodging was incredible, the guides do an absolutely incredible job helping each hunter get on birds. Already looking forward to next time.”

Aaron Philmon writes, "Just wanted to touch base with you guys. I’m writing to tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed myself on our hunt a couple weeks ago. It beyond exceeded my expectations. The ranch house was great the food was awesome. Our Guides Seth and Jose went above and beyond in working to get us hunters on birds, filling out all paperwork and getting us lined up to get back to the airport. I’ve never been on a fully guided hunt with lodging and meals and this one was 5 star, from the shuttle at the airport into Mexico the way back. Use me as a reference and I will definitely recommend Jay Scott Outdoors Gould’s hunt.  Any ways guys Thanks for a great hunt."

Dave King writes, “Guides Darr and Parker Colburn made our effort to get our Gould's turkeys extremely enjoyable. Their knowledge of the birds and our Chihuahua ranch was the difference maker in all of us tagging birds. Definitely recommend booking with www.gouldsturkeyhunt.com if you're in need of a Gould's or just looking for a fun adventure. Awesome Trip!”

Jason Uhl writes, “After an absolute miserable experience this April for my Ocellated, I was really dreading coming back to Mexico. Jay Scott, you run an absolutely rock solid business and I can’t say enough about how well planned this hunt was. Nate, my guide was great and the ranch owners were awesome people too. After seeing how easy these birds were, I kinda wish I would have waited for a little better show but we call them in 3 times and they hung up on the decoys. First chance I had, I stuck an arrow in one. Archery Royal slam complete!! Top notch outfitter and I will give you a good write up when I get home. Will be back again sir!”

Tom Booth writes, “My Gould’s hunt with Jay Scott Outdoors was everything I hoped it would be!
Darr and Parker were excellent guides, and this father and son duo are of the highest quality character imaginable!All of the details were professionally handled, making all of the travel as smooth as possible.I highly recommend Jay Scott Outdoors"

Tim Day writes, “The hunt with Jay Scott Outdoors was superbly done. Very professional. Outstanding friendly guide and the ranch owner was present and very helpful and personable. There were 10-15 gobblers present at every setup. There were at least three mature gobblers within 20 yards at every setup. Highly recommend this hunt”

Justin Milizio writes, “I had a blast down in Mexico hunting with Jay Scott’s team. Our guide Kade put us on turkeys in no time and the birds put on show after show! Friends and family members had concerns over how safe it was to travel to Mexico and anyone contemplating this trip should not worry. Jay has worked hard to make sure every step of the trip is easy and safe for his hunters.”

Elliott and Jared Mallard write, “What an unbelievable experience to the Sierra Madres of Chihuahua. The whole process, From the booking, to the hotel, to the paperwork, Jay Scott and Phil Cramer and the crew made everything seamless. Waking up to cold temperatures in the morning hearing birds gobbling everywhere on the roost. Returning to the lodge to home cooked meals after every hunt, followed by the optional cerveza and swapping stories with the other hunters. Our guide Jose was everything anyone could ask for in a guide. He knew the land and the birds as good as they come. 100% recommended to everyone and we can’t wait to be back!”
