Generations of Experience
G3 Outfitters is a partnership owned and operated by the Platt family and the Berns family.
Jay and Kimberly Platt live in Catron County, NM and both have deep ranching roots. Their families have worked and lived on ranches in Arizona and New Mexico for generations. When it comes to habitat and animals, they have continued the legacy that their ancestors began. Jay started G3 Outfitters in 2010 and has developed it into a very successful business. Jay and Kimberly have 4 children, Harvey, Colten, Clara, and Weston. All the children love to go on hunting trips.
Spencer Berns has lived in Arizona all his life. He has 2 boys, Ryder, 3 years old, and Ridge, who is 1. Spencer has been hunting since he was 12 years old, mainly in central AZ for all species and parts of NM. He had his own successful hunting outfit in the state of AZ which he ran for 4 years, He performed outfitted and guided hunts in AZ and old Mexico but soon ran out of room for growth with AZ being a draw-only state. That’s when he was introduced to Jay Platt by a mutual friend who he has known since jr high.
January 1st 2019, Spencer joined the G3 team, which Jay has built from the ground up to a very successful outfit in NM. Between Jay and Spencer, they’ll continue to grow the company expanding into AZ and old Mexico with Spencer’s background while still focusing on growing in NM and soon-to-be Texas. Providing their clients with the absolute best hunting experience and harvesting the biggest most mature trophies possible. Both are very excited about this opportunity and really looking forward to where they can take G3.
G3’s mission is to provide outdoorsmen and hunters with a hassle-free, quality hunting experience in the great states of New Mexico and Arizona. We commit to providing competent, trustworthy, and professional guides, top-notch private properties, great accommodations & food, and honesty in our business. We look forward to the adventure, friendship, and memories that the hunt provides.

From beginning to end this hunt was a dream. Pursuing the first lion with the widdie guides and my son in law harvesting his mammoth lion was an experience in its self. On the second day the hounds treed two lions 400 yards apart. After harvesting mine I experienced an additional thrill of grabbing the tail of a treed lion. From the professionalism of the experienced guides, the accommodations and the breath taking beauty of the ranch, I highly recommend G3 Outfitters.
