Arizona Auction Gould's Turkey Hunt with Casey Brooks

I had the fortune of helping my good friend, Casey Brooks, on his Arizona Auction Gould's Turkey Hunt for 2015.  We had a great hunt and many laughs were shared.  Casey harvested a really nice Gould's turkey that came strutting into the Dave Smith Decoys with his Hoyt bow at a distance of about 12 yards.  Casey is one of the most distinguished bowhunters in the world with over 63 archery bull elk and a Archery North American Super Slam under his belt.  We recorded a podcast episode for the Jay Scott Outdoors Western Big Game Hunting and Fishing Podcast on archery elk hunting that will be airing soon.  Check out the video below of Casey's awesome hunt.  Cabelas Spring Thunder will be featuring the hunt in its entirety on this Monday's episode.

Paul Colburn's First Turkey

By Darr Colburn


We had a great time hunting turkeys this past weekend on the White Mountain Apache reservation.  Michael Turner who won the raffle Gould's tag had purchased tags along with his friend to hunt out of the Sunrise camp on the White Mountain Apache reservation.  Michael shot his Gould's early the first day with Jay and headed to the White Mountain to hunt.  They arrived several days before the hunt started and a family member had some health issues so they headed home.  They offered the tags to Jay but he had already committed to go to the Maverick camp with some other friends so he offered the tags to my boys Parker and Paul.  We jumped at the chance to go up and hunt the reservation.  My boys were so excited for the opportunity!  We packed up and left Thursday afternoon to hunt for three days.  Paul connected on his first turkey right off the roost after he came in strutting and beat up the Dave Smith jake decoy.  Here is the video of Paul's hunt.  I will post more pictures and the video of Parker's hunt later.  We had a great hunt with our guide Bernard and his son Brandon.

    2015 California Spring Turkey Hunt Opening Day

    As I sit here and write this blog post I cant help but think about the upcoming elk season this fall with the Arizona Elk and Antelope draw due to come out soon.  Credit cards have already been hit and most people know that at least they have drawn a coveted tag.  The question that most are wondering is whether they drew their first or second choice.  I thought I was guiding a hunter in Unit 9 for the archery hunt but my hunter had his plans change so my September plan is still in limbo.  The anticipation for the upcoming season is always high!  Especially with some of the timely storms that have fallen in the last couple of months.  Even though winter was mild, us optimists are hoping that mild winter with early and late spring rains will produce better antlers than last year.  Only time will tell to see how it shakes out.

    I had an awesome time with my nephews, Will and Jay Pyburn, this weekend for the spring turkey hunt opener in California.  We drove roughly 600 miles to have our hunt last about 10 minutes.  We had gobblers roosted and four of them flew down and came right to our Dave Smith Decoys.  They actually knocked the DSD Jake and Strutter over and had their way with the hen decoys.  Watch the video in this post to see the action unfold.  We had a very special time as always with our gracious hosts and friends Craig and Ronell Ainley.  They are actually coming to hunt Gould's turkeys with me in Mexico in May this season.  We are all really looking forward to that.









    I found a turkey mouth call that I really like from Pollard's Elite Calls called the Original Pollard Batwing.  It is real easy to use and makes me sound better than normal.
     Check out the video of the boys hunt in California!

    National Turkey Calling Champions Billy Yargus and Scott Ellis talking Turkey Hunting

    I recently went to the NWTF National Turkey Hunting Convention in Nashville, Tennessee and had an unbelievable time checking out new turkey calls, decoys, and other turkey hunting equipment.  One of the highlights for me as a turkey hunter is getting a chance to go to the Grand National Calling Contest which is the equivalent of the Super Bowl for football fans or the World Series for baseball fans.  The best callers in the world assemble to compete for the title of the "NWTF Grand National Champion"

    All of the callers that enter into the contest are amazing and they had to have won or placed very high at their state level in order to compete.  Their are many divisions of the contest including youth, head to head, friction, gobbling and the Senior Open which is the Best of the Best.  In 2013, I literally listened personally to all of the preliminaries and the finals.  This year I just went to the Friction and Senior Open finals.  If you missed it and like turkey calling and the process of trying to improve your calling.  Check out Shane Simpson's site, CallingAllTurkeys.com, he has every contest on his site where you can listen to all of the competitors.



    As host of the Jay Scott Outdoors Western Big Game Hunting and Fishing Podcast, I had the pleasure of interviewing three 2015 Grand National Champions, Billy Yargus the Senior Open winner, Scott Ellis the Head to Head Champion and Joe Slaton the Gobbling Champion (episode to air soon).  They all are demonstrating their calls and discussing turkey hunting strategies.  Listen as they breakdown scenarios on from roosting birds, setup on roosting birds, calling to roosted birds, run and gun techniques, and many other calling scenarios.  If you are going on a turkey hunt this spring these are three episodes that you don't want to miss.

    Episode 8:  2015 Grand National Champion Senior Open Finals Billy Yargus Interview

    Episode 5:  2015 Grand National Head to Head Champion Scott Ellis Interview

    Episode ?:  (Coming Soon waiting to be edited) 2015 Grand National Gobbling Champion Joe Slaton

    2015 Mexico Coues Deer Hunt Photos Part 3

    These are photos from our second week in Sonora with a great group of guys.  Dean H. made a good shot a his buck at about 290 yards.  Dean's buck was rutting with a doe all morning and covered close to a mile zigging and zagging across the brushy landscape following his doe.  It was a bit of a rodeo staying on the deer because of how much they kept moving.  The doe wasn't to fond of Mr. Buck poking her with his cold nose all morning :).   Darr and Dean were able to move into position while Dan and Bill and I watched the show.  I used my new Swarovski 15X56 SLC a lot on this trip and was very happy with them.  This is my third generation of Swarovski 15X and I have to say they just keep getting better and better.  Having the 3X extra compared to my Swarovski 12X50 EL seemed to be noticeable.  I like both pairs equally but I have to say for detailed long range glassing the new 15X are hard to beat. Congrats Dean on a nice buck!
