Mazatlan Mexico Duck Hunting

mazatlan duck huntMazatlan Mexico Duck Hunting is the South-of-the-border duck hunting experience that surpasses all others. Welcome to the FUN side of the border – we don’t call it a “honeymoon duck hunt” without good reason! Sure, several couples have literally honeymooned here, but all hunters return by noon and have the day’s remainder to spend quality time with their better halves.With over 30 years of hunting in the southern half of Sinaloa Mexico’s west coast, staff is professional, knowledgeable and endeavors to provide you the best duck hunting vacation imaginable. So pack the flip flops and sunscreen, grab your sweetheart, and ready yourselves for the most fun either of you have had during a duck hunt! Non-hunting wives and girlfriends LOVE IT!  Where else can they enjoy a winter beach vacation while the boys hunt?

The Mexican government is generous with duck bag limits, which are strictly abided. Duck hunting limits are 20 ducks per day for which the operator allows 100 cartridges.  To ensure the best-available shooting, we only schedule Mazatlan Mexico duck hunting for dates mid-January through February, perfect for timing a winter duck hunting vacation following your state’s season closure. The Pacific and Central flyways converge here to provide a tremendous variety of waterfowl.   Over 15 different North American duck species are harvested by hunters and avid duck collectors.  Getting bird specimens for taxidermy is easily accomplished.  Primary species are green-winged teal, blue-winged teal, cinnamon teal, and northern shovelers, but there are also wigeon, pintail, black-bellied whistling ducks, gadwalls, lesser scaup and more.

Our Mexico duck hunts take place in private fresh water ponds and the beautifully scenic estuaries along Mexico’s west coast, which are plentiful within a short drive. Waterfowl are coming into these freshwater areas to drink – and they’re coming. Hunt from natural and man-made dry blinds, 2 hunters per blind. It’s a combination of decoying and pass shooting – the ducks are coming to freshwater regardless. Leave waders and boots at home, too. A pair of tennis shoes or crocs will be perfect, they’ll provide rubber boots as needed.

MEXICO DUCK HUNTS

Top-of-the-line equipment ensures your comfort and hunting enjoyment.  Shotguns include a a good selection of super-clean Benellis and Berettas.  There’s no hassle traveling through customs with firearms – gun use is included in package FREE, no additional cost.  On a typical morning, hunters meet downstairs at 5AM for coffee and sweet rolls, leaving for the field at 5:30.   Arriving at sunrise, hunters are stationed in strategically located blinds based on current scouting reports. Hunts last 1-2 hours. While waiting on everyone to limit, hunters gather for snacks of burritos and fire-roasted serrano peppers, snack boxes with sandwiches, fruit, eggs and chips, cold drinks. Everyone returns to the resort between 11:30AM and noon. The remainder of the afternoon is spent with spouses and friends doing a variety of fun activities, or nothing at all.

All duck hunters are lodged at the beautiful El Cid Marina Beach Hotel. The El Cid Marina Beach Hotel is located on the Pacific coast of Mexico in the “Golden Zone” of Mazatlan, convenient to shopping, excellent restaurants and other activities.  New for 2020, upgrade your resort package to includes meals and cocktails.

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.

About the Area – Mazatlan Mexico Duck Hunts

Mazatlán is a Nahuatl word meaning “place of the deer.” The city was founded in 1531. By the mid-1800s a large group of immigrants had arrived from Germany and developed Mazatlán into a thriving commercial seaport, importing equipment for the nearby gold and silver mines.  They also founded the Pacifico Brewery in 1900.

mazatlan aerial.jpgThe nickname which has been given to the modern Mazatlan, “Pearl of the Pacific”, has nothing to do with pearls, it is a gracious compliment to this very friendly Pacific resort city.  Mazatlan is a very interesting city and embraces tourism with a zest, but Mazatlan is more than just a resort.  When you visit Mazatlan, you should prepare yourself for an active vacation.  Mazatlan has great beaches, many attractions, a variety of interesting historical sites and many interesting monuments spread out all over the city.  Just visiting the monuments and statues could take up an entire day.  Of course, if all you want to do is enjoy the surf and sun, this is OK too.  The beach and the water activities associated with resort vacations is what vacations are all about for many travelers.  Mazatlan offers you many different choices for your vacation, kicked back  – full relaxation, active – adventurous, ecological – exploratory.

Mazatlan has been known for years, dating to film stars such as John Wayne, Gary Cooper, John Huston, and others of their generation, for the excellent sport fishing, and a number of sport fishing fleets exist (light-tackle saltwater fishing for red snapper, for example, is usually prime during the duck hunting months).  Mazatlan is also a base for nearby trophy largemouth bass fishing.  Excellent dove and duck hunting is readily available in the outlying areas. Mazatlan is home to one of the worlds greatest parties, Carnival.  Carnival, usually the last week in February or the first part of March,  is a century-old Mazatlan tradition.

Ramsey and Anita at GetDucks.com did everything possible to make this Mexico duck hunting trip easier than I ever thought a trip like this could be.  I had some reservations about security and getting birds back to the states for taxidermy, but all of my worries, concerns and questions were handled ahead of time so that I had to only worry about having an excellent time.  The hunting was so far beyond what I imagined it would be. My guide, Oscar was very pleasant and eager to get me the birds that I was looking for.  Even though very little verbal communication existed, I felt like we had that common “duck hunters bond”!  To top everything off, Mazatlan was a very safe and beautiful place to enjoy time with my wife!  We will definitely be back after I pay off my taxidermy bill from this trip!!  Thanks!

Mazatlan Mexico duck hunt was a fantastic experience. Tons of birds, great guides enhanced the trip.

Our Mazatlan Mexico duck hunt was a fantastic experience. Tons of birds, great guides enhanced the trip.  Was almost embarrassed by the fantastic hotel.  Unbelievable food available within a short walk of the hotel. Far nicer guns than I could ever afford. I really want to recognize our guide, Chavo.  He knew where to find the birds we were after and was fun and laid back, and really worked his butt off to get us where we needed to be.  Bird numbers were simply insane, and there was a great variety of species available.  Weather was unreal.  I need to recognize Socorro as well. She is a true professional and fantastic to work with. GetDucks.com again provided seamless, pain free trip planning and 24/7 support with last minute questions. Every detail of travel and actual hunt were attended to, including bringing birds back in to the U.S.  No hidden costs.

Mexico duck hunt in Mazatlan…was a blast

Hunts, guides and hotel were all great during my Mexico duck hunt in Mazatlan. One guide in particular, Chaba, I bonded really well and asked him lots of questions. Since I was a single hunter I loved being in my own blind not having to be concerned about others. My bird guy Hector helped me for two days and it was a blast.  Anita and Ramsey both helped as much as they could. Being able to speak with GetDucks.com staff at any time was extremely helpful.

The number of birds that we saw every day, the different species and the prime color that they had made for a very memorable Mazatlan Mexico duck hunt.

Everything about our Mazatlan Mexico duck hunt was “as described” by GetDucks.com.  This trip was my honeymoon and I could not think of a better place to take my wife (who does not hunt) for a vacation-hunting trip. The number of birds that we saw every day, the different species and the prime color that they had made for a very memorable hunt.   For my first time traveling to Mexico you were very helpful not only coordinating the hunt but also airline tickets, reservations, and bringing birds back to US.

every bit as good as described…lived up to every expectation.

Mazatlan Mexico duck hunting was every bit as good as described. The hunt lived up to every expectation. I even shot all the trophy ducks that hoped for. My Dad and I were able to spend mornings enjoying fast action duck hunting spend the afternoon on the beach with the spouses.  Everything was very organized and very well run. The guides and hotel staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. It was the perfect combination of hunting and relaxing vacation. Everything went very smooth from the initial planning until I got home. Thankfully we didn’t have any travel or hunt issues, but if we had, I was confident that Ramsey and Anita at GetDucks.com would have worked out in short order. I am sure they seemed remedial but for a guy going on his first guided hunt and bringing birds home from Mexico they were important questions and the quick response were greatly appreciated.

Thank you for a wonderful Mazatlan Mexico duck hunting trip. The bird boys, hotel and shooting were all world class down there.

I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for a wonderful Mazatlan Mexico duck hunting trip.  The bird boys, hotel and shooting were all world class down there.  The teal were in thick and I was able to bag several of my coveted cinnamon teal, as well as black bellies, blue wings, green wings, gadwall, and pintail (tons of shovelers too, but I passed).  The very last duck of the trip was this duck (pic attached).  I think it’s either a gadwall/shoveler hybrid or pintail/shoveler hybrid [note: this is definitely a beautiful shoveler x gadwall hybrid. RR].  It was a pretty amazing way to end an incredible trip.  Thanks again and I look forward to hunting again with you soon!

Mazatlan Mexcio duck hunting – plenty of ducks and daily limits

Mazatlan Mexico duck hunting 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!

duck hunting in Mazatlan Mexico 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.

GetDucks.com 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 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 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!mazatlan%20mexico%20duck%20hunting%206076_350x262

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.

mazatlan%20mexico%20duck%20hunting%202130020_300x225“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.”

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.

chad%20h%20mazatlan_225x281“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 for a great trip! My wife has newfound appreciation for waterfowl hunting vacations!

xnandm%20img_0216_250x200Our duck hunt in Mazatlan Mexico was the complete vacation package.  The idea of staying in an oceanfront resort while duck hunting is absolutely genius!  While I was out hunting, my wife enjoyed superb resort amenities.  The hotel is super clean, has great beachside rooms, a beautiful infinity pool, stunning views, a great bar with live music and excellent margaritas.  The guide staff is top-notch, organized, knowledgable and put us on lots of birds.  The Mazatlan duck hunt is like taking 2 vacations at once.  Thanks Ramsey and Anita for putting us on to a great trip and hunting experience.  My wife has newfound appreciation for waterfowl hunting vacations!

Mazatlan was the best duck hunt ever! Ducks were plentiful and varied species. Shooting action was fast and close. I could not ask for a better overall duck hunting package!

“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!”
