South Africa duck hunting…easily described as a “trip of a lifetime” but I don’t think that it was our only visit!
A couple of years ago, my wife took me on a waterfowling trip to Alaska for my 50th birthday, so I was under considerable pressure when hers came around. South Africa duck hunting could not have been a better choice. We spent an enchanted week with gracious hosts at their beautiful lodge. South Africa is a beautiful and interesting country with an abundance of wildlife and a spellbinding history. And the wingshooting? I must say that I have never seen a greater variety of opportunities anywhere. A typical day might involve an early hunt for Egyptian and spurwing geese, a mid-morning hunt for driven guineafowl and francolin, a break for lunch and an afternoon shoot for hot-gun doves or pigeons. I can easily describe this experience as a “trip of a lifetime” but I don’t think that it was our first and only visit!

New Zealand duck hunting was truly a fantastic trip made all the better by our hosts. The trip was nothing short of spectacular.
New Zealand duck hunting was truly a fantastic trip made all the better by our hosts. The trip was nothing short of spectacular….once the flight was out of the way (ugh!). Certainly no lack of birds, and we had bagged all the birds we were after by the second morning. Ducks, geese, pukekos, and even pheasants just came out of the woodwork. Paradise shelducks are just about the coolest bird I’ve ever hunted…kind of like dumb geese. Bagged some really cool mallard/grey duck hybrids, too.
The food and hospitality were absolutely top-notch. I certainly didn’t lose any weight, and Sheryl and I had a blast just staying up late BS’ing with our hosts and probably drinking way too much beer, wine and port. Awesome trip that we’ll never forget. You’ve got another winner. In the meantime, we’re trying to figure out a cool trip for next season. Sheryl wants to try Obregon…wouldn’t take much arm twisting to get me to go. I’d like to go someplace to hammer specklebellies. Or we may just pull the trigger and do another Argentina trip. Life is full of tough decisions.

This Rio Salado Argentina duck hunting operation is truly one of the great duck hunting destinations in the world…exceeded my expectations.
The recent email that Chris sent really summarizes our Argentina duck hunting trip most accurately. Ramsey, the trip was everything you represented and exceeded my expectations. Whereas I thought our little boys would shoot a couple of boxes of shells in the course of a morning hunt, I was so proud to hear them banging away in the distance going through whatever number of shells had been suggested for that mornings hunt. I was amazed to see them harvesting 25 to 40 ducks considering that they only shot at ducks and killed a few at our farm for the first time last Christmas. It shows that their natural ability and passion for shooting can really begin to pay off when starting so young.
This Rio Salado Argentina duck hunting operation is truly one of the great duck hunting destinations in the world. Also I’ve had many translators in many places in the world I’ve traveled internationally, but I have to say you are truly blessed to have Martha as part of your team. One day I asked her if she actually thinks in English because her comprehension and understanding is excellent. She can read an expression on a client’s face and then already begin to have a solution or answer on the tip of her tongue. Also I appreciate her having gone into the field with us on a few occasions. It allowed us to learn more about the experience and talk to our guide through her.
As for the future I will be staying abreast of you through your website and hope to be able to participate in another one of your GetDucks.com adventures in the future.

Dear GetDucks.com Team, WOW! What else can I say? This Argentina duck hunting trip at Rio Salado with my uncle, brother-in-law and 2 young sons (10-12) was the trip of a lifetime in a truly beautiful and wild location. We feel blessed to have been invited to experience this special place. The hosts Martha and Fede were gracious and made us feel totally at home. The cooking staff did a great job, delicious food and nobody left the table hungry. Our guides were amazing, hardworking men and I totally trusted them with my boys; I truly felt a bond with these men. These guys were complete professionals with great personalities, my boys and I will miss them. I came to realize that Ramsey, Anita, David, Martha and Fede and the guides are all key parts to making this adventure what it is, spectacular. In missing any part of that equation would change the entire experience.
I am thankful for:
•The amazing shoots
•The views, the sunrises and sunsets.
•Hunting each day in this beautiful place with my family.
•The late night talks with Fede.
•Playing soccer with my sons and the guides.

This was my son Philip’s senior trip. We will never forget it!!
This was my son Philip’s senior trip. We will never forget it!! We are from the hospitality state, but La Paz is the hospitality epicenter — everyone was so helpful. The food was the bonus, we had no idea we would be eating gourmet every meal. The combo of ducks, doves, perdiz, pigeons and golden dorado is awesome!

Can’t think of any way to improve on the Las Paz Argentina duck hunting combo. Would love to come back.
I booked this hunt at the Las Vegas SCI convention and wasn’t sure what to expect. Needless to say this was a fantastic hunt plus good fishing day. Very beautiful birds and country. Food was the best since I lived in Europe. Martha was a great host and very well organized. Ramsey and Anita at GetDucks.com did excellent jobs describing this hunt and preparing my travel. Can’t think of any way to improve on the Las Paz Argentina duck hunting combo. Would love to come back.

Wow! The Argentina duck hunting combo at La Paz exceeded my expectations!
Wow! The Argentina duck hunting combo at La Paz exceeded my expectations! My son Bryan and I were shown such good hospitality. Martha is such a kind, good natured and organized host – she is a gem! Osvaldo and Karen are such good folks – what incredible gourmet food! The duck hunting was unequalled, the guide staff were really on top of their jobs. Beautiful duck species. Rosybills were in vast numbers and decoyed very, very well. Dove hunting was at a major roost – wow – shot hundreds! Decoyed pigeons were a blast! Parakeets were in such arge nubers it was incredible. We caught large dorados and ate them on an island in the Parana River. The bird dogs allowed us to shoot our limits of perdiz quickly. We will see you all here again! WOW!

Our La Paz Argentina Duck Hunting combo was an amazing time. You and your staff did An AMAZING JOB
Our La Paz Argentina Duck Hunting combo was an amazing time. You and your staff did An AMAZING JOB adjusting to our constantly changing arrival in Buenos Aires due to 2 canceled flights!!! And extending our departure date!!
From the time my party arrived until the time we were dropped off at the airport we THE SOUTH JERSEY BOYS were treated with the greatest respect. Your entire staff MARTHA, OSVELDO, DEIAGO, SANTIAGO, PASHA did a great job considering the changing conditions due to the major flooding that had occurred there.
I was not expecting the quality of service or accommodations that the La Paz lodge provided, especially the the food that KARIN AND OSVELDO provided !!!! Every meal we had I considered to be 5 star rated. They went out of their way to provide our every desired meal and tastes.
Plus spending time with them all as we relaxed after our evening meals included ALOT of laughter and great stories made even better with the lack of completely understanding one another due to the language differences, but Martha and Dieago did outstanding jobs translating, sometimes causing even greater bouts of laughter! The meals in the field were cooked to perfection and you were right, I don’t think I will be eating any beef here in the USA for a while !
The duck hunting was difficult due to high water conditions but the boys did their best to put us on birds, and we shot plenty. While the dove, pigeon and perdiz hunts were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING SHOOTING. I think we surprised everyone with the volume of our shooting. Our group of 4 hunters shot 496 boxes of shells over 5 days, for a total of around 6000 birds!!!! I truly loved the pigeon hunts, and the parakeets are a hoot to shoot.
You were right MARTHA is a wonderful and amazing hunt hostess and she knows how to put on a first class trip!! I pray the you never loose her as she is a valuable and rare person to have as an employee. And she can bust balls with the best of us men.
As you know I came onboard this trip at the last moment, I just wanted to say thank you for trip of my life with some now very good friends.
I look forward with working with GetDucks.com in the future.
THANK YOU again.
