Shoot'em close. Less to pick.

They might get my guns, but they'll get the bullets first !

It was great - hunted there last year and this year. We shot more than 500 ducks and 500 doves in 6 hunts with 12 guys. Here is a pic of one of the hunts:

This was on the Laguna Madre.

The package deal is something like $3500 not including airfare. This included a pickup in Harlingen, TX, all travel from there and back, all food and booze as well as the lodge. The only incidentals are ammo.

Did yall shoot any bands down there. It'd be pretty cool to get one banded in canada and harvested all the way down in mex.

No, in fact one of the guides told us that he has seen maybe 20 bands out of all the ducks he's seen killed, which is a sh!tload. In my group we shot over 500 this year and over 200 last year and got 0 bands.
