i go fishing there all the time and have been waiting tio hunt. I was just told 1 guide actually has the guns to use. i ve had a problem wanting to bring my guns down there. When i fish there in the winter there's 1000's of them .Also was told the duck hunting is excelent. The price of the guide is only like $50 but a licence?? and bringing ammo down? Do i need alicence for the ammo? Dont want to trust the mex guide totally.lol

These days I think its just about mandatory to get your license, permits, etc. through an outfitter and use a guide. We used to go years ago, but its a totally different ballgame these days. I like San Quintin. Its a relaxing place to spend a few days fishing, hunting, eating etc. Given the crime rate today, using the guide's guns might be preferable to driving down with yours. I think Mexhunter or Riverduckhunter may have some more current information on getting set up to hunt Mexico.

As I recall, it was mainly a brant hunt with maybe a few teal and widgeon, but it was like 25 years ago. The quail hunting was really good. If you are into quail, its worth including.

Not sure I would trust anyone down there without references and copies of licenses, although once you remove your guns and ammo from the equation, things probably get simpler

As I said, its an entirely new process now. Back when we went, a family friend kept a trailer down there and you registered your guns with the Federales upon entry into Mexico and it all seemed pretty simple and cheap. Craig may have worked something out with the guy who owned the land his trailer was on. The only guys I ever remember handing money to down there were kids who cleaned the birds, but I was never the one handling the business and that was a long time ago. I have only fished down there a few times since then.

Last I heard it now costs about $1,200 to get set up to hunt upland for the season, but its a long and liberal season. The now required guides are about $50/day - not sure if that's all in or per person. A couple guys I know still go down there and they use U.S. based outfitters for permits, access, etc. Not sure what the waterfowl situation is. As I recall, riverduckhunter is pretty up on all that stuff these days.
