Default At least 9 members of American family killed in Mexico ambush

I had my own run in with the military that definitely left me questioning if it was smart to keep going fishing there. A few months back an American couple fishing in the place i feel safe was assaulted and held hostage at gun point while drug runners used the dock in front of the house they rented to offload a shipment. There have been other incidents and our guide has even given us warnings and let us know it may not be so safe.

I love Mexico. The fishing, the people, the food. There’s just a feeling down there I can’t replicate elsewhere.

What I described above definitely won’t keep me from going back. Look at how many Americans are there daily without incident. However, to act like there isn’t an additional risk involved when you cross that border is naive.

Wasn’t directed at you, but I’m surely no bad***. But i will defend my choice, and bring points that show the WORLD we live in is a sick place if you want to protect yourself 100% from bad then so be it, my ONE point to all of this is people that choose to go there do it because they love the memories it serves. I’ve met many great Mexicans many that i call friend, and memories that i will get to tell my kids about. I could say your stupid for limiting yourself from experiences that will last a lifetime. But i don’t because one that doesn’t make you stupid, and two that’s the path you choose to look back on May you grow old.

The entire country is jacked up. They worship the cartel. The cartel does more for the people than their own government. They write songs about these thugs. "Beto Quintinilla" like folk story legends. I swear I had a entire crew of them working land rigs in South Texas. Mexican citizens with duel citizenship. They speak of cartel leaders and their actions like we talk about JJ Watt.

Rinse wash repeat.. over and over and over. Why defend any of your decisions to someone on the internet? I am amazed the Mexico guys spend so much time defending it yet mums the word on anywhere they hunt state side. I would be curious to know much the price per acre has dropped in the last 10 years. I wish it was closer because o would love to give it a go.

Fact remains is that hundreds of ppl have been killed in ambush style mass murders over the last two years and what has the USA govt done about it?



Same thing that Mexico has done...
You are mistaking lone mentally ill gunmen with enforcers of an organized crime syndicate. Vastly different.

I had a few good experiences in Acuna when I was 16 years old but that was a long long time before the cartels. I'm talking early 1960's. I crossed over with my whole $35 paycheck and still made it back to Crane, Tx where we lived with money left over to last me until the next Friday. Coffee/tea was .05 cents and hamburger with fries was .35 cents. Chicken fried steak ala carte $1.10.

Land for sale and lease is increasing unfortunately. Especially along the river, or say within 20 miles of it. It dipped down pretty good around '08 when Pena got kidnapped with a hunter. The hunter was let go almost immediately....

Since about '12 or so it's been increasing.

I'm 16 years in straight, made it through the "war" as the locals called it in '08 through around '10 or so. Probably the only reason I stayed during that time is we literally had a military checkpoint at our back gate or I would have skipped a year or 2....

But you're correct it's like beating a dead horse, they think we're crazy, we think we're in paradise... and I'm only sad when I cross the bridge to go home... not the other way around. But they sure as hell ain't changing my mind, and we're not asking them to cross, who the hell wants more competition?

I sure like hunting thousands of acres with a couple of buddies, deer get old and nasty.... nothing like it. If it cost me a beer a 2 to my " vecino's " so be it. I've never once feared for my life, not even close.....

I don't do anything stupid and mind my business. I've made sure the locals know who I am.... ALL the locals. To each their own..... VIVA!

Goctha, so you arent really hunting in old mexico

I am really not trying to pile it on. But I think you can see the irony in your sense of security.

Something goes wrong how? Medical? Bad guys?

1. Mexico has a 911 just like us.
2. My phone ( TMobile) has service over 90 percent of Mexico in my area.
3. I have a Military checkpoint less than 4 miles from me.
4. The border bridge is 25 min away ( truck ) or I could walk 4 miles and be at the river's edge.
5. I know my neighboring ranches, the owners and hunters most of which are gringos. ( Hunters )
6. My Debit Card/ Credit Card works just fine in Mexico, you might get Pesos instead of Dollars. There are several machines that will only give dollars. Also notify your bank you'll be in Mexico so if they see a transaction they won't shut your card down.
7. Learn some Spanish. At least a few nouns. If you're gonna play in Mexico it helps to communicate.

3 Trucks full of heavy armed guys show up to your door.

Your first move is to dial 911?

No I would walk out and say what's up? Can I help you gentlemen?

The 911 would be more for a Medical emergency, but depending on the Medical condition I would probably just haul *** to the bridge.
