I first hunted with JACO Outfitters in 2013 in quest of my first Grand Slam for Merriam Turkeys after researching and contacts with many hunters and biologist about the best Outfitter for that in New Mexico. JACO and John Olivas the owner were at the top of their list. I was able to take my first Merriam opening day of 2013 to complete my Grand Slam in 30 days of that year. John and his main guide Danny Alcon were professional in every aspect for an outfitter, and the facility and hunting grounds were superb as was the quantity of turkey and other game we saw on the hunt. I’ve re-booked every year since and have taken many friends and guests and they will all agree it was a truly super experience. I’ve completed 4 Grand Slams now and all of my Merriams were taken with JACO. (Also their turkeys are pure strain Merriam, not hybrid Rio-Merriams, that some outfitters have in NM) I just completed this years hunt yesterday and took another exceptional Gobbler to complete my 2017 Slam with friends from Kentucky. Food, Guides, Hospitality and quantity of game were exceptional as always!
