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

brooks w mazatlan.jpg"If the winter blues or the recent sub-par duck season has you down, I advise calling Ramsey Russell.'s Maztalan duck hunting is the perfect cure! You can end both seasons with a bang! And it gets better. You can add a little vacation and romance to the trip if the spouse or girlfriend wants to head south as well! We took turns shooting drakes-only on several occaisons, and a favorite hunt took place near a coconut plantation with mountains in the background. Thanks Ramsey and Anita for a great Mexico duck hunt!" - Brooks Wilson, Referenced Hunt: Mazatlan Duck Hunt in Mexico


"Ramsey and Anita were very informative and helpful throughout all stages of the trip. It seemed more of a working friendship, great help with everything including getting the birds back to the U.S., and a reservation mishap was easily resolved within 5 minutes thanks to their being on-call. Good food, great new friends, and lots of ducks (20-duck limits daily), recommend this Mazatlan duck hunting to others."

Nine days of great Mexico weather, a whole lot of great seafood and beer, plus 3 mornings of fantastic Mazatlan duck hunting. On a couple mornings, my new bride went along as photographer, what more could a man ask? There were 6 days and 3 afternoons for other fun activities, and we had a great time fishing one day."

"Mazatlan was the best duck hunt ever! Great staff, great accommodations, great duck hunting, excellent hotel and local restaurants recommendations! Next time I will bring my wife. Hunts are over early so can spend better part of day relaxing with spouse. Best time spent with my son on any hunt ever. Ducks were plentiful and varied species. Shooting action was fast and close. We were able to observe many species of shorebirds, seabirds, songbirds and raptors as well. I could not ask for a better overall duck hunting package!"

chad h mazatlan.jpg"Our Mazatlan duck hunting trip to Mexico was a wonderful, but much needed vacation for my wife and I. The scenery, food, hospitality, and sunshine was perfect. The duck hunting exceeded our expectations. When you take turns shooting drakes only, you know it's as good as it gets. Introducing the other couples via email before the trip was the perfect touch. Ramsey and Anita were always available prior, during, and after the trip to answer any questions. Everything fell into place exactly like it was supposed to. We had a great time socializing, shooting ducks, sharing great memories, and making new friends. We appreciate ya'll making it happen and definitely look forward to our next hunt."

Mazatlan Mexico Duck Hunting 2130020"All the birds were killed with 2 3/4" shells. Had we not thrown restraint to the wind, we quite possibly could have limited out with 20 birds per person in 20 minutes. When is the last time you let a drake go by in Ohio because you didn't think it was feathered very well? I never dreamed I could restrain myself,  though I did shoot some stupid birds just to take them out of the gene pool. Just doing my part for the betterment of the sport!

My wife, Diane, explained to me the we need to start saving for the next Mazatlan duck hunting trip while she took one last look around the resort. She claims that I can keep hunting ducks if I include her in trips like this.  Well, we should all have trips go this smooth and be able to get along as well as we all did. All the wives want to go back. I know for a fact that if anyone would suggest a trip back there again, the girls would probably start packing before the sentence was completed.
GetDucks provided a supremely accurate description of the package. Though we were cautious due to prior experiences with other organizers, this trip was a huge success and a good a trip as I have ever been on.  But there is one complaint - you should have convinced us to stay a day or 2 longer!  No one in the group felt like heading home. We will all be rested up to go back to work on Monday, but our thoughts will be back in Mexico.  This was a relaxing experience, with moments of intense shooting. Don't get better than that.  Many thanks Ramsey & Anita Russell. You both did damned good."

Very organized on gun permits, travel suggestions, and no hidden fees. No stress travel. Pick up service was prompt. Crossing the border both ways went smooth. The food was incredible with the chance to try many new dishes. Accommodations were very nice and the brant hunting was great. We enjoyed the Pacific Black Brant hunting most! It was so much fun being able to shoot lead again, and enjoyed just being able to travel and shoot with my good friend.

Mazatlan Duck Hunting Mexico 97050Big thanks to, as well as our significant others, for a terrific Mazatlan Mexico duck hunting trip!  Mazatlan is not just about the ducks - we spent the afternoons with our wonderful wives and had a blast! 

The food is excellent and very inexpensive! Shrimp and spiny lobster are in big supply and available at every restaurant. The view isn't too shabby either!

There is so much to do there sight seeing, shopping & other silly stuff that girls wanted to do.  We didn't even touch the amazing fishery available!

Another great hunt with!  Limited out daily. Cinnamon Teal!!!!!!!!!!!  The Mazatlan duck hunting guides were excellent.  I am very pleased with Pat and Anita making last minute changes due to flight disruptions on the way down.  After a miserable plane delay and delayed baggage, Anita was able to arrange an extension and even had camo waiting for me at the desk.   I am ready for the Obregon duck and brant hunt next year!!

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.

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!

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.

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 that I was working with an experienced service. Feedback was quick and thorough. Questions were answered quickly and all information was easily obtained.
