My Sonora Mexico hunting season 2019-2020 (lots of pictures)
Despite the talk about how dangerous Sonora was and the unfortunate things that happened near Chihuahua we managed to have a great hunting season in our ranches. We had no security issues and had a good hunting season with several happy clients, some great mule deer were taken, some nice management deer as well including the biggest we have seen and taken along with some stud coues deer that we ran across without even really focusing on them, of our clients only 2 did not get their mule deer, one held on for a giant and missed one typical over 200" buck on the last day, other had bad luck with a stud buck in the 190" range being spotted the first day but gave us the slip and despite grinding the rest of the hunt and the other truck who had tagged out spotting several huge deer we were not able to make it happen. Overall an enjoyable season with some old and some new friends with a great time had by everyone, I will let the pictures do the talk, anyone interest we are taking bookings for both mule and coues deer for next season!

A few studs in there......very nice! Obviously someone believes it's safe enough to bring his kids along.

Pretty amazing that another thread where a lot of speculations, comments by people who have never been down here, and people that believe the lies of a tv show received more comments than an actual report on a hunt with several clients and children involved down here in Mexico!

Fantastic success!
You must run a good operation and have some wonderful trophies to take that great mix of fine heads!
Well done man!

Man, this bunch of wide racked bucks
proves I've always hunted the wrong places.

Never seen such racks as these. Endless show.

Thank you for sharing these great pictures
with us.

What will the situation be for Americans wanting to hunt Mexico this season. Has C19 stopped or added any additional protocol to gaining entrance? Thanks!

On the plains of hesitation lie the bleached bones of ten thousand, who on the dawn of victory lay down their weary heads resting, and there resting, died.

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch...
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

Not to answer for Manuel but we received our Mexican bird hunting permits the last week of August. The permits are good for baja and Sonora.

You may have your permits but American travel to Mexico is still limited to "Essential" travel. I can't imagine hunting is considered essential.

Lets just say its "Mexico" and everyone is crossing the border trailering all their toys across without issue. Baja racing, fishing and hunting are all up and running.

That is also what I am hearing, business as usual.

I had a friend go diving in Baja during August. Had a great time.

Photos like those are making me re-think another Buff hunt in Africa and consider a Mulie hunt with you.

What's the longest hunt that you do?

I'll take one of these to go, please. Eeker
