I went West (and a bit South) last February. Mazatlan Mexico.
Weather was beautiful. My wife spent the morning at a pool overlooking the ocean. I was back daily by noon. We never felt concerned. Everyone was friendly. Food and drinks were awesome and dirt cheap.
Birds I shot: pintails, GWT, BWT, cinnamon teal, spoonies, and black bellied tree ducks. We targeted only drakes and did not shoot our 20/person each day; but EASILY could have.
I brought a 30quart soft cooler full of prime drakes back through customs as my carry on. All legit with paperwork.
