    I've noticed a lot of the outfitters in Mexico that offer ocellated turkey hunts usually offer them as "combo hunts" with other species including a bunch of upland bird species, currasow, coati, agouti/paca, peccary, brocket deer, and even larger game like cougar/whitetail deer.

    I'd like to hear from people that have been on a hunt like this before - did you hunt any other species while you were there? Are there species you would've like to have hunted while you were there?
    What species would you consider definitely worth the time to target alongside the turkey?

    Take care,
    Drew

    Are you looking to start or complete a "slam"?
    Are you looking to hunt an oceolla turkey?
    OR
    Are looking to hunt turkeys outside the U.S.?
    There are outfitters in Florida that hunt oceolla's and/or eastern eastern turkeys and you can hunt hogs and gators.

    Looking to hunt ocellated turkeys, outside of the US. Not osceola - completely different species (not my pic below).

    They're in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. I guess since they're so far in the jungle, and there are so many other species available as "incidentals", it's common for outfitters to offer other species on the trip. There are lots available, I want to get some feedback from people who have hunted here as to which species are worth extra time/trophy fees to pursue with the turkey.

    Check with “getducks.com”-I’ve done some taxidermy for guys who booked with them that were very happy with their hunts.

    Yeah this is the last one I need for my world slam but not sure I want to go to Mexico right now. I realize that is in the safe area, just I dont know, was looking at 2021/22 and alot can happen between now and then. I did find one guy that seemed to be reasonably priced with good success rate. I will PM you his info once I dig it up.
