Bringing me along on your Mazatlan Mexico duck hunting trip could backfire – I might not let you go hunting there without me again!  I can still hear the waves pounding the beach just outside our patio door, I’m craving Tamazula Shrimp from Los Arcos and that 80-degree weather was much better than the snow back home!  You shot ducks and I enjoyed a great beach vacation. How about some more couples packages from in the near future!  ~ Anita Russell, Travel & Administration

“Just a note to say thank you for the great trip to Mexico (Mazatlan Duck Hunt). The accomodations were great and the view from our balcony was priceless.  It was so nice to meet you and Anita.” ~ Jackie Beck, Non-hunting Spouse

Customer Testimonials put a lot of thought into developing the perfect Mazatlan Mexico duck hunt

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 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  Any questions we had were answered promptly no matter how trivial. The information on the web site is most informative and helpful. I feel have put a lot of thought and "home work" into developing the perfect Mazatlan Mexico duck hunt package.

Plenty of ducks and daily limits

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. is very fast, friendly and honest! Jason Helton Referenced hunt: Mazatlan Mexico Duck Hunt

duck hunting in Mazatlan was fantastic; tons of birds

Mexico duck hunting in Mazatlan was fantastic; tons of birds. Lodging was top notch, guides were friendly, professional, and knew where to find desired birds. Equipment was as good as anyone could hope for. Weather was exceptional for this Alaska boy. Guides were outstanding, worked very hard to put me on desired birds. Came away with four outstanding birds to take home, including a cinnamon teal which was highly desired. No fulvous, which I knew was a long shot anyway, but all the hunters that wanted specific birds had opportunities on them. Hats off to Ramsey and Anita for ensuring a hassle free experience all the way around; from lodging to bird import. The entire experience was seamless and painless. Every detail of the trip was taken care of and ready and waiting. As an additional note, the staff in Mexico was fantastic.  Well done, thank you.
