The Valley of Mexicali located in Mexicali, Baja California, one hour south of the U.S. border at Calexico, provides excellent opportunities for bird hunting. Dove, quail, pheasant, geese and duck hunters travel here year after year to enjoy the sport. Guns and even ammunition are highly illegal in Mexico, UNLESS you obtain the proper permits. Local outfitters help American hunters with gun registration, and “tags” for the various species. The outfitters also organize UMAs and arrange with local farm owners for permission to hunt in their fields. Once you are registered with an UMA, there are thousands of acres of farm land to hunt on. Guides are also required.
