LIFE’S SHORT GETDUCKS: WYOMING GOOSE HUNTING WyoBraska Waterfowl

Wyobraska Waterfowl hosts Ramsey Russell and friends on an incredible waterfowl hunting adventure along the North Platte River in eastern Wyoming. It's an American Wild West hunting adventure of epic proportion.

wyoming goose huntsThe American Wild West conjures nostalgic images of dusty cowboys, stoic Native Americans, mule drawn covered wagons, herds of bison stretching to the horizon. But in the long shadow of historic Fort Laramie, near the exact location where the First Sioux War began, the North Platte River slithers like a snake through remnant prairie and grain agriculture on its long descent to the Gulf of Mexico. Hunting for mallards and Canada geese can be epic. In this installment of Life’s Short GetDucks, Ramsey Russell and company join USHuntList affiliate, Wyobraska Waterfowl, to further explore this too often overlooked American waterfowl hunting paradise.

LIFE’S SHORT GETDUCKS: LAS FLORES ARGENTINA DUCK HUNTING “THE FLOWERS”

Legendary Argentina duck hunting destination was named due to the sheer abundance of decoying rosy-bills, the true rockstars!

Life’s Short GetDucks worldwide odyssey continues with Ramsey Russell returning to his serious roots in Argentina duck hunting. Las Flores literally translates to “The Flowers.” This legendary destination was named due to the sheer abundance of decoying rosy-bills, the true rockstars of the pampas. But in a country full of slick operators that promise the moon to sell packages to unknowing American hunters, this is the story of a passionate hunter-outfitter that exceeds client expectations every morning without compromise, without fail, and of the genuine friendship that has since developed among these two duck hunters. #getducks #lifeshortgetducks #Itsduckseasonsomewhere #bossmen #unmuzzled #argentinaduckhunting #ramseyrussell #realduckhunting #ramseyrussellgetducks #waterfowl #hunt #waterfowloftheworld #waterfowlconservation #huntingisconservation #duck #pochard #rosybilledpochard

Our poster-boy Argentina duck hunt for good reason. Ducks, every time.

There are generally two kinds of Argentina duck hunters: those that have been there and those that want to go. The upcoming Life’s Short GetDucks episode, “The Flowers,” takes place at our poster-boy, real duck hunter’s Argentina duck hunt, a place we refer to as Las Flores, which literally translates to “the flowers.” It was so named because nobody but nobody produces decoying rosy-billed pochards like this outfitter. Sure, you’ll take all of the usual species, but decoying rosy-bills will steal your duck hunting heart. #getducks #lifesshortgetducks #itsduckseasonsomewhere #argentinaduckhunting #rosybilledpochard #duckhunting #ramseyrussellgetducks #bossmen #realduckhunting #huntingtravel @ramseyrussellgetducks

LIFE’S SHORT GETDUCKS: COOP’S LAST MEXICO ROAD TRIP

Yellow dog Cooper and I spent many great times duck hunting in Mexico, but all good things come to an end

That little marshmallow-colored pup became one of the best hunting companions ever hoped for, and certainly the most well-traveled. What yellow duck dog Coop’ lacked in hunt test title initials (no fault of hers but we had a hectic hunting schedule), she made up for with real-world smarts, a fail-proof nose and the fierce tenacity to root cripples from the densest thickets. A real band magnet, too. In crowded airports, pet-friendly hotels and hunting lodges throughout 4 US flyways, 4 Canadian provinces, 4 countries worldwide, her politely quiet demeanor earned affections from countless strangers, a place beneath my feet on long flights, her share of in-flight meals, sometimes even a spot on the bed. She’d earned it. We shared many great times for weeks on end in Mexico each year. She’s still got plenty of hunts left in her yet, don’t worry, but she’ll be in full-blown retirement, sunning in her favorite spot in the back yard, before we’ll ever have the chance to hunt South of the Border again. And that’s ok.
