I have hunted in Mexico the past two years with Jay Scott and have booked another hunt for the 2020 spring season.  Jay runs a top of the line Goulds Turkey Hunt and I recommend Jay Scott Outdoors to all of my friends.  It is truly a hunt of a lifetime.

Steve Rinella of Meateater TV Show and Podcast
Jay Scott and Darr Colburn will give you the best turkey hunting experience you've ever had. They knew the area well and had a lot of gobblers lined up. We hunted two mornings and called in many birds. One day I passed on two mature gobblers that were strutting ten yards away just because I was having so much fun. Shot the third to come in. The other morning was similar; could have killed multiple turkeys and shot a mature tom that was gobbling and strutting his tail off within yards. (We filmed the hunts, so I have irrefutable proof.) The border crossing was no issue. Ditto with the firearms importation process. The people knew Jay and it was simple. Any uncertainty I felt about that part of the process was quickly alleviated. Accommodations were quite perfect. Clean, well-furnished, hospitable. The workers at the ranch were happy to have us and they showed it. Food was great, with nice regional color. Really, it's a magical place and a magical hunt. In my occupation I've seen it all, and these guys are the best of the best. Smart, curious, humble, and deeply inspired by the hunt

Aaron Warbritton-The Hunting Public
If you are looking to complete your Royal or World Slam, Jay is the man!  Hunting out of the country can be a logistical nightmare but Jay is a pro and there were no surprises on our trip.  Not to mention there were turkeys everywhere!

Andrew Briggs
I've hunted turkeys my whole life, and I've had many hunts and every one of them was unique.  None of them compared to hunting Gould's in Mexico with Jay Scott.  The accommodations and the habitat were excellent but the hunting was truly exceptional.  You wont find a better outfitter for your hunt

Dallas Strait
My father and I enjoyed our hunt with Jay Scott of GouldsTurkeyHunt.com so much.  We have taken our World Slam and this hunt with Jay was the most organized and well planned logistics from A to Z.  Awesome hunting!  We highly recommend Jay Scott and his crew for anyone looking at a Goulds Turkey hunt.

Tony Beverly
I would like to thank Jay Scott Outdoors for making my Royal Slam quest and awesome experience.  Attention to detail, scouting, accommodations were top notch!  I recommend this hunt to anyone who still loses their mind a little in the spring.  Our wives tagged along and were in love with the beautiful ranch.  I know, good Lord willing we will be back!

Chris Coffey
I had the pleasure of completing my Royal Slam with Jay Scott and Hunter Haynes of GouldTurkeyHunt.com.  Jay exemplifies what you look for in a guide and outfitter.  His passion, excitement, hunting knowledge, and love for turkey hunting become quickly evident when hunting with him.  The beauty of the hunting property and number of Goulds turkeys was very impressive and the aggressive nature and vocalizations of the turkeys made for some incredible calling.  It was truly and amazing hunting adventure and experience!

Rick Oliver
If you want a Goulds for your Royal or World Slam don't spend your time and money elsewhere but with Jay Scott and his guys.  Top Notch!

Tim and Jacque Phillips
Our Mexico Goulds turkey hunt more than met our expectations.  It was truly a trip of a lifetime and we completed our double Royal Slams.  Jay Scott Outdoors and his amazing staff took care of every detail.  We can't wait to go again!

Mahlon Stoltzfus
An incredible turkey hunting experience.  Going on a Goulds Turkey hunt will be a thrill ride.  I highly recommend Colburn and Scott Outfitters/GouldsTurkeyHunt.com!  Jay, Chris and Hunter our guides were great!  The ranch that we stayed at and hunted was a true hunting dream.

Andy Melton
I am currently on the Cabelas Spring Thunder prostaff and have had the opportunity to turkey hunt some of the best places in the country. I can honestly say I have never hunted any birds like the Goulds before. They are extremely responsive to calling and love to gobble !!!  I will return to hunt with Colburn and Scott Outfitters and plan on bringing my son to witness this turkey paradise that they have to offer.

David Williams
What can you say about Colburn and Scott Outfitters?  The real question is what can't you say.   When my group and I set off for a Mexico Goulds turkey hunt, we had no idea how the birds acted or what they responded to.  On top of that we had to go across the border, but Jay and Darr were completely on point.  They took care of all the paper work and transportation to and from the airport.   The country was absolutely gorgeous while the accommodations were very unique and fitting to the atmosphere around you.  Now for the hunting,  I have never had so much fun turkey hunting.  Jay and Darr had done their homework and knew which draws and canyons were used more and put us on them.  The birds work great, are extremely vocal, and could not be any prettier!   You better believe I will be back.   If you do not believe me you can check out mine and Andy's hunts online at Cabelas SpringThunder 2013.

Joe Bittner
I set out to complete my Royal Slam with my Long Bow. And after seeing Jay Scott featured on a TV show featuring the Goulds Turkey I contacted him and let Jay know about my interest in getting the Goulds Turkey.  Jay Scott was quick to respond back and the trip to Mexico was booked.
Jay Scott and Darr Colburn are two of the best guides I have met. They are very professional and proficient in getting you across and back from Mexico.  I arrowed my two Goulds the first night in Mexico, and the first one of their clients to have completed a Royal Slam with a Long Bow.
If you are thinking about getting the Goulds Turkey and completing your Royal Slam I highly recommend Jay and Darr.  I would not hesitate to book another trip with them for future hunts.

Bill Wohlers

I had the opportunity to hunt with Colburn and Scott Outfitters in 2013 in Sonora Mexico and completed my Royal Slam.  The birds were plentiful and the scenery was spectacular.  Their knowledge of the territory and the bird habits was outstanding.  The accommodations were wonderful.  This was one of the best hunts I have ever been on, and is certainly an experience of a lifetime!  I was able to bag two Gould's gobblers in a couple of days.  I would recommend Colburn and Scott Outfitters without reservation and hope to return to hunt with them again soon! 

Matt Allen
If you want to hunt Goulds turkey then Jay Scott's outfit is who you want.  Crossing the border was a breeze the agents all seem to know him by name.  I harvested a huge bird with Hunter Haynes who works for Jay on the first night to the ranch. I plan on returning with my sons for a hunt soon.  Book a hunt with Jay! It will be top notch!

Doug Beaird Spring 2023
In April of 2023 I completed my Royal Slam with Jay Scott Outdoors. This hunt went exactly as advertised he has many different ranches to hunt. These birds are not over hunted or pressured, which leads to an outstanding opportunity to harvest a Gould’s turkey. Very professional guides and overall operation. I highly recommend this Outfitter. Would I book them again? Absolutely!! Thanks Jay and Kade Purser for a memory that will last a lifetime. Doug Beaird 

Brandon Melton Spring 2023

Wonderful time in Chihuahua with Jay Scott Outdoors and guides Darr & Parker Colburn. Punched my tag for my Royal Slam first day on the ranch. It did not disappoint. Can’t wait to go back down. Truly an amazing place to experience. Brandon Melton

Robert Bivens Spring 2023

One of my favorite things to do is hunt with my dad, especially turkey.

After hearing stories about my dad's first trip to Mexico, he insisted I had to go with him. The two gobblers that Jay Scott called in for me turned out to be an experience I'll never forget. Jay Scott has an unrivaled and infectious passion for the outdoors and hunting that every avid turkey hunter can admire. Anyone looking to check off their Gould's should, without a doubt, book a trip with Jay Scott and his crew. Robert Bivens

Joe McKeown Spring 2023
If you love turkey hunting like I do you have got to make this hunt with Jay Scott’s outfit. I am 75 and this was to be a one time thing bucket list item to complete Royal slam (mission accomplished).
I had such a great hunt and good time I plan to go again next year. Good accommodations, meals and great guides.  Can’t wait to go again. Joe McKeown

We had a fantastic time on our very successful hunt in gorgeous country far from civilization! We especially appreciated the dedication to watching the show before finishing each hunt. Jay and the ranch owner were great hosts! Tim Coyle Columbia Missouri 

Kyle Stout Spring 2023

My son, Alex, and I looked to complete our Royal Slam, and we knew we wanted the best experience we could find, that also had the highest success rates and reviews from other hunters. Our experience was simply that, the best. Since getting back home, I have told many people that have asked that our hunt was the most authentic experience I have had chasing turkeys. From Easterns, Merriams, Rios, and Osceolas, this Gould’s hunt was just a different experience. -Kyle and Alex Stout, Martinsville, Indiana

Brandon Shoulders Spring 2023

Jay I can’t say enough good about our trip, Kade worked very hard at making our trip special, he’s a professional and just an all round great guy, the communication from you and your staff made the travel seem less, and the hunting was second to none and the amount of jakes we saw is going to be awesome for everyone in the years to come. I highly recommend everyone trying this you won’t regret it, if you’re looking to make great memories this is the place to do it! Brandon shoulders

Dustin Creel Spring 2023

Jay Scott Outdoors… Only thing I can say is First Class! These Gould Turkeys in MX are awesome to hunt. Phil was an awesome guide and put us on the birds for 3 straight days! Great accommodations! Great food! Great fellowship! The little things done behind the scene to get our birds back to the USA did not go unnoticed. Jay Scott Outdoors created memories that will last a lifetime and I will most definitely be back!!

Dustin Creel

Emily Ryals Spring 2023

Was it my love for my husband or the promise that I could choose our next vacation that made me agree to go to Mexico to hunt turkeys? I am not sure, but I am now so glad I did. Phil Cramer took the best care of us and I had a wonderful time. The accommodations including the ranch house and chef Ricardo Paez were top notch, and we immediately got into some turkeys night one. As a first time hunter looking for a flawless fan, Phil was beyond patient with me and made sure I felt completely comfortable throughout the trip. Not sure if I will ever have the same passion for hunting as my husband, but the experience, scenery, and people were amazing! Emily Ryals

Wes Armstrong Spring 2023

Life is an adventure, get out and live it.  This Gould’s turkey trip will go down as one of my favorite trips of all time! Thank you, Sir!!  Going into the hunt, I really couldn’t believe I was going to drop that much money on a Turkey hunt.  I’m really not even much of a Turkey hunter.  I’ve always mostly just hunted big game.  I have to say though that it was worth every dang penny I spent.  I will definitely do it again!!  It’s crazy, but that Gould’s hunt is way more than just a Turkey hunt.  Wes Armstrong

Larry Villines Spring 2023

Thanks Jay Scott Outdoors for an exciting hunting experience! Excellent communication, outstanding guide as well as having the opportunity to hunt on beautiful landscape with plenty of turkeys. Top shelf in every respect !

Larry Villines 

Scott Bivens Spring 2023

This was my second year in a row hunting Goulds in Mexico with Jay Scott and his team. The last two years have been so wonderful that I am booking year three. I enjoy turkey hunting more than anything else, and was able to get my royal slam last year. Without a doubt hunting Goulds in Mexico with Jay has been my all time favorite hunting experience ever!  The Goulds put on quite the show, and every avid turkey hunter should come and experience this with Jay Scott Outdoors. Scott Bivens

Sam and Linda Gaylord Spring 2023  Our Goulds hunt in Mexico was Epic!  The Goulds are beautiful, and this trip was one of our favorite hunts we have experienced. It won’t be our last we will be back to have more Goulds adventures! Shout out and Thank you to Kade Purser you are an amazing guide and Jay Scott you have a top-notch organized outfitter business! Our rating is 5 Stars to everyone who asks us about this trip! Sam and Linda Gaylord, Old Barn Taxidermy

Luke Lord Spring 2023

My best friend (Jeff schlup) and I had an amazing Goulds turkey hunting  trip to Mexico with Jay Scott and his team of guides! We killed 4 birds inside of an hour on morning 1. Tons of birds and we literally had a gobbler land 2ft from the gun barrel off the roost. Guide, food, and communication was top notch. We highly recommend and will be back again! Luke Lord KC, Missouri

Brad Crews Spring 2023 

Our Gould's Turkey hunt with Jay Scott and his team was awesome! The ranch we hunted had an abundance of birds and our guide, Hoke, was truly a world class turkey caller. It would be very hard to beat the experience we had and I can't wait to head back!  Brad Crews

Tony Brunini Spring 2023

This was my 2nd hunt w Jay Scott & team. We couldn’t be more pleased with the two hunts. Jay's crew all make sure you have a great experience. My 2 sons & I are all Royal Slammers! Tony Brunini

Darik Zoborist Spring 2023
Mexico was a hunt like I’ve never experienced!! We made memories that surpassed some of our best hunts. The guides were top notch and will be lifelong friends. It definitely took me out of my comfort zone and gave us memories we’ll never forget. All and all a phenomenal experience!
We honestly had a blast with kade and hunter, only getting to know them for a short couple days you would’ve thought we’d known each other for years!
I/ we appreciate everything, that completed my royal slam, but that wasn’t even the best memory.  Thanks again,
Darik Zobrist St. Jacob, IL

Josh Anderson Spring 2023

Getting a Gould’s Turkey has always been high on my list and I could not of picked a better place to go to then Jay Scott Outdoors. Nothing compares to how good the hunting is, turkeys are everywhere, the food is great, the accommodations are rustic and comfortable, and you truly get the Mexican experience! Cannot say enough great things about their operation and look forward to going back! Josh Anderson Alto, GA 

Kevin Mortenson Spring 2023

My wife was feeling guilty about us not doing much for my 40th birthday. I was able to leverage that guilt into a trip I've been wanting to do for years. With an added bonus of my 12 year old son joining me. It was an adventure from start to finish.  Staying on a ranch that makes you feel like you have gone back in time 150 years, in all the best ways, and being able to harvest a beautiful mature tom are memories I'll have forever.  Without a doubt, though the high light was not only seeing my son get a great bird, but to see his passion for the outdoors and hunting go to the next level was worth every penny.  Kevin and Barrett Mortenson

Chase Phillips Spring 2023

Jay Scott and his outfit have some incredible ranches to hunt in Chihuahua. We hunted a new ranch he picked up this year and it was full of birds. It’s always fun hunting birds that have not been pressured before.  Chase Phillips

Matt Queen Spring 2023

I booked a trip with Jay Scott for the 2023 season to get my Gould’s turkeys for my 2 Royal Slams. What an awesome trip! I was fortunate to get a nice Gould’s gobbler with my bow the first evening and another nice Gould’s gobbler with the gun the very next morning. Man them turkeys are aggressive and like the call. I enjoyed hunting with Preston and his sons. Great group of guys. I would highly recommend Jay Scott for a great Gould’s Turkey hunt. 

Thanks for the awesome hunt

Matt Queen

Carrie Kirton Spring 2023

While traveling many miles as a solo woman hunter trying to complete my world slam and chase the 49, I have experienced it all!!! Many good and many bad outfitters and guides!!! When I started to plan to get my Goulds in Mexico, I had so many concerns about traveling alone. Jay Scott Outdoors immediately answered all of my questions and put my mind at ease!! He sent step by step instructions for what I needed to do as soon as I landed. He was in contact with me before I was walking off the plane. The ranch in Chihuahua was breathtaking!!! Top notch lodge and the food was amazing!!! My guide Mr. Phil Cramer was a breath of fresh air compared to the hunt I had just finished up!!! He is a very talented and knowledgeable guide and one outstanding Turkey caller!!!! I brought home a beautiful Goulds Turkey to add to my collection!!! I look forward to using Jay Scott Outdoors for  many hunts in the future!!! Carrie Kirton

Chris Peccia Spring 2023

If a Mexico Gould’s Turkey hunt is on your list @JayScottOutdooors and @Gouldsturkeyhunt should be your first call.  I can’t recommend them enough and do so with zero reservations.  I’ve been on quite a few guided hunts and these guys are a well-oiled machine.  Everything was flawless from my first inquires about the hunt until clearing birds back into the U.S.  This crew has it dialed in!  I’ll most certainly be back hunting in Mexico with these fine folks.   I  can’t thank Jay Scott, Kade Purser, Seth Meeske and the rest of the supporting cast for providing a world class turkey hunting experience.  Chris Peccia Helena, MT
