Seven of us, 5 hunters & 2 non-hunters, spent 3 wonderful days Gould's turkey hunting in Durango. We have never seen that many turkeys in any 3 day period in our lives, and we're old! Each of us was successful with at least a nine+ inch bearded Gould's. We estimated the number of turkeys seen, including hens, jakes & toms to be around 400. This hunt constituted the world turkey slam for each of us. We couldn't have asked for better food, accommodations, beautiful surroundings OR, a better turkey hunt. We are happy hunters!

We all arrived home safely about 10:30 PM Tuesday night. A long day for all of us, but we were all smiling as we went to bed thinking of the wonderful time we had in beautiful Mexico. We had visions of Gould's turkeys dancing in our heads. Thank you so much for everything you did to make our Gould's turkey hunting trip so memorable. We can't think one thing that wasn't just perfect.
Please feel free to use any of us as a reference. We send our best to you and each member of your terrific staff. Looking forward to seeing you in the near future.

GetDucks.com, me gusta lo profecionales que son ,no dejan ningun detalle se ocupan de todo,un grupo de gente como jamas conoci,esto es cazar de verdad. (Translation: GetDucks.com,they are very professional, not one detail is left aside, they take care of everything, never met a group of people like them, this is real hunting.)
I enjoyed every minute of GetDucks.com's Obregon duck, brant and dove hunt. The host was perfect, the staff was Johnny on the spot for any request and just plain never missed a beat. We went to Argentina a few years ago (through another agency), but we are planning on revisiting this Mexico duck hunt again instead. It's closer, cheaper, and the hunting is great. We're going to add an extra day next time to include bass fishing. GetDucks.com did an excellent job organizing this trip and I will strongy suggest your services and this destination to friends.

I'm a duck hunter. Or at least I try to hunt ducks. Southeast Pennsylvania is not exactly a duck hunters paradise. But, I do manage to harvest a few for the table each year. I've traveled to a few places through-out the country. Trying to add to my collection of prized birds. Sometimes successful, sometimes not. But each trip held it's own rewards. Just being in the marsh at daybreak to watch the world wake-up in a new place is something to live.
A few years ago, I decided I really wanted a Blue-winged Teal to add to the collection. Started making the calls, without much promise. Then I was told Mexico is the place to go. I found GETDUCKS.COM, operated by Ramsey Russell. The website itself was impressive, and looking at his Facebook page, I was convinced he is an experienced world-traveling duck hunter. When I called Ramsey, he told me about a few upcoming trips in Mexico, including a hosted Obregon Mexico duck hunt that he invited me to join. The price was right and included everything except for ammo and airfare. I like to K.I.S.S. and have a good time. This sounded perfect and perfect it turned out to be.
From the moment I stepped off the plane it all felt "right." It was a pleasant surprise to walk into a beautiful estancia in the middle of town. I felt like I was in someone's private clubhouse. Our bags were put in the very nice comfortable rooms, with the air-conditioning already on.
Harvesting different duck species every day was fantastic experience. The quality and quantity of the birds was spectacular!! The group bagged at least 15 different species of waterfowl, and saw many different types of shorebirds, wading birds and pelicans while hunting the tidal flats. All absolutely beautiful!! The birds I brought home to mount: Green-winged teal, Blue-winged Teal and Cinnmon teal, Wigeon, Pintail, Lesser Scaup, Mexican Duck and Shoveler. We harvested drake and hen Redheads worthy of the wall. One day we harvested the most beautiful Gadwall I've ever seen, an I'm kind of kicking myself for not bringing one of them home. Absolutely beautiful.
One of the nicest rewards was seeing the local children at the boat ramp one morning, smiling to be getting ducks for dinner that night. Two waiters awaited us every afternoon at the lodge, one with coca-cola and cold water, another with fresh margaritas and cold cervezas. Appetizers of bacon-wrapped dove breasts, chicken wings, quesadillas, and the best FRESH guacamole in the world were all very good and held the wolves at bay until dinner. Plenty of time to take a nice shower, update the log book, enjoy story-tellings from the day and past trips.
We ate like kings throughout the week to include the largest smoked pork chops ever, lentil soup with peppers, BBQ chicken, tortilla soup, Mexican night with home-made tamales, fajitas, chiles rellenos, polenta, and black bean salsa that were all fantastic!!. The final night we had porthouse steak with guacamole and grilled onion sides while being entertained by a 10-man mariachi band. Perfect ending to a Great week!!!!

Thanks to Ramsey Russell's GetDucks.com, my Obregon Mexico duck hunting trip (to include my bringing personal shotguns) went perfectly. Trophy birds were easily imported and I brought home black brant, cinnamon teal, Mexican mallard, and a black-bellied whistling duck. The duck hunting, accommodations, and services were fantastic. Thanks for such a great and memorable hunting trip.

Had a great time hunting black brant in Mexico with my Dad. Lots and lots of birds, with brant limits every day! Lodging, transportation, guides and most importantly the hunting was exceptional! Looking forward to my next trip to Mexico with GetDucks.com!

Just wanted to send an email tell you how good of a time I had duck and brant hunting in Obregon, Mexico. As you know I went not knowing anyone and came back with many friends. Frank and his staff do a wonderful job making sure that you are comfortable and that all of your needs are well taken care of.
This was the first time that I had actually met Ramsey in person. He was great and was constantly making sure I was having a good time. I would recommend this hunt to anyone. Thanks to Cherie for the smooth travel arrangements. Thank you GetDucks.com for a fantastic time and I'm sure you will be hearing from me again soon.

Mazatlan Mexico duck hunting was excellent. The sheer volume of birds was unexpected. The accommodations were terrific and it was fun for both hunters and spouses. Other than shooting birds, we greatly enjoyed hunts in a picturesque landscape and then getting to come back and enjoy the pool and beach with spouses/girlfriends. I knew in working with GetDucks.com that I was working with an experienced service. Feedback was quick and thorough. Questions were answered quickly and all information was easily obtained.

I think it would be hard to improve upon the way this Mazatlan Mexico duck hunt is conducted. The guides were very punctual and courteous, did their job well and tried to make the hunt as enjoyable as possible. The office staff was well versed with filling out the paper work to bring the birds back as well as explaining how the hunt was conducted. The Mazatlan weather couldn't have been better and blinds were easily accessible. The food at all restaurants suggested in the GetDucks.com pre-trip was fantastic. The hotel staff was excellent. Spending quality time after the morning hunt with our spouses was an added bonus. This was a perfect trip to bring your spouse along, she was blown away, and said we should do this again.
I thought everything from the initial contact to the completion of the hunt was first rate - there wasn't anything I did not like working with GetDucks.com. Any questions we had were answered promptly no matter how trivial. The information on the web site is most informative and helpful. I feel GetDucks.com have put a lot of thought and "home work" into developing the perfect Mazatlan Mexico duck hunt package.

The Baja Mexico brant hunt was excellent. Food, transportation, guides, hunting, hotel, service, and our host were all outstanding. They went out of his way to make sure we all had an amazing experience. The guides moved our location several times to get us in better locations. GetDucks.com is very professional, lots of communication. Ramsey was available anytime and answered all questions I had. Everything was easy. You guys have thought everything out, and included everything we needed.

The Baja Mexico brant hunting trip was an outstanding success. I would like to thank Anita and Ramsey at GetDucks.com as well as the field staff. Everyone seemed to be overjoyed and were able to fulfill and exceed their goals and expectations for the trip. I never heard a complaint and everyone is dreaming of hopefully returning to do it again soon.
Again thanks for a spectacular hunt and I hope the pictures I attached worked out. It was three days of full limits, bands and we even managed to add some ducks.

Thanks to Ramsey and Anita and the whole Getducks.com team
for putting together the hosted Obregon Mexico duck and brant
hunt. Every step of the way was as painless and
well organized as I've come to expect from them. GetDucks.com is
the best booking agency around. Frank, the owner of the
outfit, was as on the ball as I've seen yet. His staff and air boat
guys were truely amazing. Bar none.
I wanted to come home with some teal slams, shovelers, mexican mallards. Was able to take all and more. And the whole exporting was handled by Pat Pitt and was a breeze! The permits and paperwork and crossing customs in Dallas, Pat made it look easy.

Mazatlan Mexico duck hunt was great. Plenty of ducks and daily limits once again! The guides are excellent and worked very hard to ensure that clients needs were met. Ramsey was upfront about the hunting in Mexico being slower than normal due to an off migration this year and advised me to wait. I was very pleasantly suprised to find the birds were there in abundance. GetDucks.com is very fast, friendly and honest!
