We had a great time spring snow goose hunting and seeing another part of the US. The guide staff were true professionals and worked hard to make the hunts safe and productive. Thanks for arranging the trip!
“My son and I had a great time spring snow goose hunting in South Dakota and seeing another part of the US. Absolutely no complaints! The guide staff were true professionals and worked hard to make the hunts safe and productive. I have geese in my freezer and a new set of stories to tell. And a few lies…
Thanks for arranging the trip and I’d be interested in hearing some more about your other hunts in the future (including that GetDucks.com Baja Mexico brant hunt).”
All the best,

The resort was beautiful, and we were greeted to our view of the Pacific Ocean from our balcony. Limits for all of us every day. We were often back to the resort before our ladies had finished breakfast!
“The Mazatlan Mexico duck hunting trip was to celebrate my 20th anniversary to wonderful wife, Tracie. We wanted to do something a little different for us, and something we would both enjoy.
Long story short, Ramsey Russell with GetDucks.com hooked us up with a great trip to the Mexican Pacific coast, which just happened to also offer great duck hunting! We invited several good friends, and were lucky enough to have Warren, his wife Dianne, and close friends (and fellow veterinarians) Dane and Cindy join us.
The resort was beautiful, and we were greeted to our view of the Pacific Ocean from our balcony. We spent the late afternoon and evening enjoying the sites and a walk down the beach. For the next 4 mornings, we were treated to some of the best duck hunting I could imagine, within 1.5 hours of the resort. Limits for all of us every day. We were often back to the resort before our ladies had finished breakfast!
Regarding birds, shovelers were EVERYWHERE, and therefore constituted a chunk of our bag. We also got into the green-wing teal for sure, even blue-winged teal (our warm winter even short stopped most of the bluewings and cinnamons, unfortunately…oh well, a reason to go back!) We had one day of nothing but bluebills (well, almost all bluebills, Warren had to whack a shoveler.). I was lucky enough to get several wigeon and a black-bellied tree duck.
The rest of the day was spent either sightseeing, shopping with the ladies, or just doing NOTHING at the pool. I NEVER get to do NOTHING, so this was a special treat!
Evenings were for enjoying the UNBELIEVABLE sunsets and eating amazing seafood. We returned home reluctantly last Friday night. It was an unbelievable trip on so many levels. Certainly it won’t be the last time.
A quick word on safety in Mexico. The American media and the Dept of State would have you believe you can’t safely poke your nose off the plane anywhere in Mexico. At least where we were in Mazatlan, no one even looked at us sideways. We encountered plenty of other Americans and Canadians who had no complaints and wouldn’t go anywhere else. The shops, resorts, restaurants were very friendly and safe. I want to go back, preferably today.”

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.
“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.”

A great time was had…
“Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know what a great time was had on our Alberta goose hunt. I should say goose “shoot” since I have never seen so many geese and ducks in my life! Abundant waterfowl every hunt, with great guides and great camaraderie.
The facilities were excellent, and I appreciated the hospitality our guides exhibited. They were determined to set us up right and they did.
In short, I had a great time and look forward to going again in the future. Knowing your standard for excellence, I ‘m looking forward to trying one of your Argentina dove or duck hunts soon. “

6 great days of Manitoba mallard and honker hunting
Well, Ramsey, more great duck hunting on a different continent than last time. We had 6 great days of Manitoba mallard and honker hunting. I enjoyed every part of it. It certainly lived up to my expectations.
I’ve been blessed to hunt many of the prime waterfowling hotspots and this is definitely one of them. The guide is a true master of decoying birds, an excellent caller and hunter. I’ll be back next season to waterfowl hunt in Canada again.
Your attention to detail made this hunt trouble free and smooth, from start to finish. Ramsey Russell’s GetDucks.com did it again!

Ramsey will put you on the ducks and geese
“If you want to get ducks, this is the only way to go. Ramsey will put you on the ducks and geese. I plan on going on many more waterfowl hunts with GetDucks.com!”

What a great duck hunt!
“What a great Uruguay duck hunt! Of the three times I’ve hunted South America, this was by far the very best and least expensive.
I’ve told everyone that GetDucks’ Uruguay duck hunt is definitely the way to go. Thanks for the great trip; we’re already looking forward to next year!”

Mazatlan duck hunting trip in Mexico was everything I always dreamed it would be. When you take turns shooting only drakes, you know it’s as good as it gets.
“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 GetDucks.com hunt.”

Thanks Ramsey for a great trip I’ll never forget.
“I have a must do list of things I’m determined to do in my lifetime. Dove hunting Argentina was on my list along with diving the Great Barrier Reef and fly fishing Alaska.
By chance I read a post on a duck hunting website from a GetDucks.com group that had just been to Uruguay duck hunting with some awesome pictures. They liked it so much they were already planning a trip for the following year (2006). I called Ramsey Russell of GetDucks.com and told him that I was interested. Luckily there was an opening and I already knew one of the hunters.
I didn’t know what to expect but boy was I surprised!! I killed more ducks in 4 days than I had the entire preceding season. In just 2 and 1/2 days of dove hunting I probably killed more dove than I had my whole life! Not only was the hunting exceptional but the accommodations and food were excellent. What ended up as a hunt of a lifetime was the wing-shooting adventure of 2 lifetimes. I’m already scheduled again next year. Ramsey pays special attention to the details; right down to matching personalities within a group to make sure everyone gets along. Thanks Ramsey for a great trip I’ll never forget.”
See you next year,
