    Look up the US travel advisories for Mexico. Listed by state. I just did. :) Show your Dad.
    Make sure you enroll in the STEP program. INreach is handy as is sat phone.

    Ain’t no way would I drive across unless it was with my guide. When I was working down there this time last year, the Capt on the boat I was supervising told me not to step off the boat without one of the crew, that was on a dock behind I literal fortress with the Mexican army patrolling the dock w/ M16’s slung across their chests.
    When I flew in to get on the boat, I don’t remember the name of the little airport but it was sketchy as hell!!! Shady looking guys hanging around same way when I flew back home.

    I know it's not approved currently on the northern border, can't imagine it wouldn't be to the south.

    The guide meets you in Douglas, Arizona and picks you up. He transports you to and from Mexico and handles all paper work.

    Killed 4 Gould’s down there about 10 years ago and you’ll have a blast. Border will be fine I’m sure. I’ll be there late January hunting Coues Deer and Muleys as well just not driving across.

    I'm doing a little work as a mule in Mexico so I may hook up a hunt while I'm down there.

    Better get with your outfitters. Have to show a negative Covid test prior to returning to the US beginning Tuesday if you're flying.
    Land border crossing does not require a negative test at this time.

    We're flying to Durango first of April. Spoke to outfitter this morning. He said ranch owner, who's somebody down there, can assure us a negative test result. :)
    We're there for three days so we'll get tested when we fly in.

    Thanks, I will check on that. We are crossing border via land so hopefully we wont have to have a test. We received our passports last week. Counting down the days!

    Not a big deal. Literally just crossed yesterday coming home from my Coues Deer hunt. Stopped in Hermosillo at a “drive thru” testing site and has the results sent to my email within 30 minutes. Presented them to the Delta folks and away ya go.

    Thanks CHL. You guys that have killed a turkey, how did you get it back to the states and to your taxidermist ? I've heard of shipping it or even putting it in your luggage and on the plane with you.

    We brought back our goulds froze in duffel bag as carry on, on the plane. They had to inspect it at border though.
