I recently returned from our GSS Hosted Hunting Trip at Sinalopato on December 1-5, 2012. The group had a great time. We averaged Mexico’s liberal duck and doves limits each shoot. . . . On the first hunting day, we shot ducks the first morning at the “North Marsh,” about an hour’s drive from Hotel. I shot with one of my clients and we shot about 50 ducks; one of our other clients, shooting from a single blind, shot by himself and shot 25 ducks. The blinds were nice and all had wood floors, the bird boys were good, the guns worked great and shells were great too . . . not a single misfire.
The owner of Sinalopato shot with us and, after our morning duck hunt, we went to his new “hacienda” about 30 minutes’ drive from the North Marsh for lunch . . . a true green oasis. . . . The hacienda is situated on six acres of park-like grounds with water fountains, fruit trees and palm trees, plus a beautiful Jacuzzi and swimming pool next to the lodge. We all had a great lunch, some good wine, and a little siesta and then went to shoot dove, about a 25-minute drive from the hacienda. . . . After our dove hunt, the drive back to the Plaza Inn Hotel was about 25 minutes as well. All of our meals at Mr. Owens’ restaurant in the hotel were very good.
Next morning we went to shoot ducks at South Marsh, about a 35-minute drive from the hotel. Once again we had great duck hunting. The airboats worked great, and we had beautiful airboat rides to duck blinds with all kinds of cranes, ibis, pelicans and shorebirds; the sky turned black in areas from all of the ducks taking flight. Nearly all clients shot 50 ducks per two person blind. The afternoon dove hunt again easily produced 60 dove limits per person, all white wings.
On the last morning duck hunt, we shot again at the South Marsh. At about 8:30 AM we had a call from the airboat driver and they wanted to know if we had any extra shells as two of my clients had already shot their 10 boxes of shells . . . so we sent them two extra boxes of shells, and they again shot their 50-duck limit (25 ducks per person that morning). We had another great dinner that night at Mr. Owens’ restaurant at the hotel and I flew from Los Mochis to Hermosilla the next morning on my return trip home.
Two of my clients flew from Los Mochis to Cabo for their marlin fishing trip the following day. One of my clients caught a very large (over 400 lbs.) striped marlin on their fishing trip.
All of my clients and I had a really great time at our Sinalopato Duck & Dove Club during this GSS Hosted Hunting Trip. If you have any additional questions regarding hunting at our Sinalopato Duck & Dove Club, please contact me or visit our website at www.Sinalopato.com
