Gould's Turkey Hunting in Mexico
Gould’s Turkey Hunting in Mexico
Gould’s Turkey hunting in Mexico is my favorite due to the terrain where we hunt. We hunt the Gould’s turkey in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico about three hours WSW of Chihuahua City on cumulative leases of around 80,000 acres. Most of this land is above 6,000 ft. elevation in the Western Sierra Madre Mountains where we have excellent populations of Gould’s turkey. Due to the higher elevation, our season is a bit shorter than other turkey hunts in Mexico with prime time normally from mid-April until mid-May.
Your Gould’s turkey hunting accommodations will be in one of several 2BR / 1 or 2 Bath ranch houses scattered around our hunting leases. There is plenty of hot water for your shower and each of the houses are clean and comfortable. Our cook is a culinary school graduate and prepares meals of international cuisine. And don’t forget the clean, crisp mountain air. You should be in pretty decent shape for this hunt simply due to the higher elevation and you will likely do quite a bit of walking as some of the waterholes are down in the canyons and others on the plateaus.
We limit our Gould’s turkey hunts to groups of six people offering four full days of hunting. Normally, we make four morning hunts and four afternoon hunts. Knowing the water holes is extremely important in hunting the Gould’s turkey in this part of Mexico and we try to setup between the roost and a waterhole, then looking at several waterholes until we find birds. Calling skills are extremely important here. One thing that should be mentioned is that taking your Gould’s in Mexico not only qualifies for your Royal Slam, same as taking one in the US, but, is also one of the three birds you will need for your Mexican Slam, as well.
When you come to Mexico, you will fly into Chihuahua City, the capital of the state of Chihuahua. We will pick you up at the airport there and provide transportation to the ranch where your Gould’s hunt will be conducted. At the end of your hunt, we will transport you back to the airport in Chihuahua City.
Please make your travel arrangements to arrive in Chihuahua City, Mexico (airport code CUU) on American Airlines Flt #3385 at 12:03PM from Dallas (DFW) and depart on Flt #3385 departing at 12:38PM. This schedule assures us of a smooth transfer of incoming and outgoing groups and assures you of having the maximum time to hunt your turkey.
When you come to Mexico to hunt Gould’s turkey with us, we provide transportation to/from the airport in Chihuahua City, lodging, meals, hunting license, turkey tag(s), use of our shotgun and ammo, USDA approved preparation of your trophy and all documentation necessary to bring your Gould’s back into the US with you. Our hunts are fully guided 1:1 and may be customized to meet your needs.
