Mexico duck hunt an all-time client favorite for reasons discussed in this exciting short film

Ramsey Russell’s worldwide waterfowl odyssey continues in Obregon, Mexico, examining the reasons that many hunters continue to choose this legendary Mexico duck hunt destination. Nestled against the Sea of Cortez, this hunting area encompasses a vast, fertile agricultural valley surrounded by otherwise desert landscape. A couple important waterfowl species are endemic to the region, but most Central and Pacific flyway duck species overwinter in this waterfowling oasis.

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.

Parallel Pasts, Converging Paths, Friendships Formed

Continuing a personal worldwide waterfowling odyssey by visiting one of the most remote marshes imaginable, one of those kind of pure, unspoiled places we hunters always dream of going.

Premier episode of Life's Short GetDucks web series begins Down Under

Life’s Short GetDucks: Australia

The long-awaited premier of the forthcoming series begins Down Under. Australia is as familiar as duck hunting in the southern US, with mallard-like Pacific Black Ducks responding to soft calls and filtering into flooded timber, but is as otherworldly as kangaroos bounding through ancient red gum swamps, the unique pink-eared duck, and hamburgers topped with pineapple and beetroot. Welcome to Australia, mate! Please join Ramsey Russell as we explore 6 continents during an epic waterfowling odyssey, chronicling worldwide duck hunting, putting viewers into duck blind locations they’d never imagined, for some species they’ve only dreamed. #lifesshortgetducks #getducks #itsduckseasonsomewhere #australiaduckhunting #huntingisconservation #ramseyrussellgetducks #waterfowloftheworld #ramseyrussell #realduckhunting
