Duck hunting in Los Mochis offers prime water fowling, while your bird boy stays hidden and does the duck calling until it’s time to retrieve your downed ducks. To host the hunters and insure a quality hunt, Bobby Balderrama has selected the vast wetlands of Estero de Capoa and the Lagoon de Ohuira, consisting of over 38,000 acres of marshland, located less than an hour`s drive from the hotel. A professional air boat operation guarantees a great hunt.
