Hunt what many consider to be the most desired of all Wild Turkey species, and perhaps the most beautiful of all game birds, while simultaneously exploring the Mayan Jungles of the Yucatan peninsula. Ocellated Turkeys can only be legally be hunted in Mexico, and are a species needed for the World Turkey Slam. A more newly formed SCI Jungle Fowl Slam also recognizes the Ocellated Turkey, as well as Great Curassow and Crested Guan.
These hassle-free, all-inclusive packages extend to our new, but limited, farm country specialty turkey hunts - in addition to the better-known and proven jungle hunts closer to Campeche. Our farm country hunts occur from boutique hacienda-style hotels with restaurant meals, Air conditioning, Wi-Fi, and a swimming pool, but the only species available are Ocellated turkeys this time of the year. Jungle camp hunts however offer an extensive line-up of unique species such as Brocket deer, Jungle fowl and more.
Ocellated Turkeys are very territorial and aggressive, boasting the longest spurs of any Wild Turkey species, and are known to fight to the death! As such, calling strategies are most effective in the late season, and employ gobble calls, luring dominant toms to fight, rather than hen calling for a breeding response.
Not only are these hunting packages unique, but they also provide a great opportunity to combine a hunt with a vacation and site seeing while in the Yucatan peninsula. Historical Mayan ruins, or R&R resort options along the coast are all possible before or after the hunt, with round-trip airport shuttles from both Merida and Cancun, plus shotgun rentals, already included. Non-hunting observers welcome!
