Ok guys, y’all ready to hear about the circus? On Friday my cowboy said he was going to run into town to get some food and gas for his truck. This trip usually takes him a couple hours round trip, I was sitting on the porch and surprised to see him return in about an hour. He came speeding up and told me that there was a shootout going on in villa Union and that there were military and police driving through our closest town of Guadalupe. He showed me a couple videos and said there were probably 40-50 cartel trucks attacking the town. Crazy enough as it is, but I wasn’t concerned as we were on the ranch.

A few hours pass and I headed to the stand, sitting in the stand and I get a call from a buddy of mine telling me that their trucks just got stolen at gunpoint. He said 6 cartel trucks one of which was a military truck with a .50 mounted on top came speeding into camp where he, his father, and wife were sitting outside on the porch. They were obviously caught off guard and froze in the yard with their hands up.

The guys hopped out and one of the cartel members punched one of my guys in the face and roughed him up pretty good. They held them at gunpoint with the safety’s off, and fingers on the trigger. Destroyed the camp house, took all their guns, food, and trucks that didn’t have the low jack system in them (the cartel actually asked them if they had low jack) prior to leaving they slashed the tires on all the ATVs and made sure they had their passports and docs to get back to the US. Also they asked them if they had insurance and assured them that their insurance company would pay to replace the trucks.

My buddy Cody is a contractor and had a bunch of his hats on the dash of his truck. He said they were all wearing his hats. LOL. Scary story, but said they were respectful, but it was obvious not to cross them. They did tell them if they told the military which way they went they would come back and kill them.... needless to say that was their last trip to Mexico.

The next couple of hours was pretty intense and we had cartel running all around our ranch, very thankful the outcome wasn’t worse and we have one heck of a story to tell, and Cody gets some free business advertising!
Viva and ill be back next week!

Well Iím glad the whole story came out.... were supposed to be there for each other. This tight knit group should be the eyes and ears for each other no matter how raw the info is... withholding that kind of stuff isnít the right approach Imo, and not right to the guys that went through it. Iím glad prayers were answered and everyone returned home safely thatís not a situation i hope anyone ever gets put in again. We lost a few more hunters today and i hate to see it, but wonít downplay their situation and totally understand wish them Nothing but the best!

Thank you for sharing the story.

Were these the same hunters that the Mexican media was initially reporting as being kidnapped? From the names involved, this sounds like a different incident on the same day.

Nearly every ranch surrounding this area has a story to tell! We were all affected in some way. Some were WAY more affected and Iím thankful no one was serious injured. Worst weekend in 21 years of hunting this area for me! Very scary with all of my children and wife there.

I figured as much on the link. Glad Cody posted his story. 3rd world counties don’t like airing their dirty laundry. Saving a little face is more important than being truthful.

They recovered one of their trucks, shot to pieces with bodies in it. If y’all want to send me a text with your names I’ll send you some pics that I can’t post on here....I have most, but we should all have each others numbers anyhow. 512-269-9008 for those whom don’t have mine.

Agreed this is the right approach. I hunted Mexico for years but left for my own reasons based on things I experienced. I don't understand the guys that downplay it and can understand the frustration with those that have never been and know everything about it/dangerous etc.
Let the facts be what they are and grown people can make their own decisions.

I left Guerrero on Sunday and it looked like they were about to start rutting. Good cold front may kick it off!

Nothing unusual. We had deer fighting and flipping each other over before Thanksgiving. No real chasing outside of youngsters showing some interest.

This trip usually takes him a couple hours round trip, I was sitting on the porch and surprised to see him return in about an hour. He came speeding up and told me that there was a shootout going on in villa Union and that there were military and police driving through our closest town of Guadalupe. He showed me a couple videos and said there were probably 40-50 cartel trucks attacking the town. Crazy enough as it is, but I wasn’t concerned as we were on the ranch.

A few hours pass and I headed to the stand, sitting in the stand and I get a call from a buddy of mine telling me that their trucks just got stolen at gunpoint. He said 6 cartel trucks one of which was a military truck with a .50 mounted on top came speeding into camp where he, his father, and wife were sitting outside on the porch. They were obviously caught off guard and froze in the yard with their hands up.

The guys hopped out and one of the cartel members punched one of my guys in the face and roughed him up pretty good. They held them at gunpoint with the safety’s off, and fingers on the trigger. Destroyed the camp house, took all their guns, food, and trucks that didn’t have the low jack system in them (the cartel actually asked them if they had low jack) prior to leaving they slashed the tires on all the ATVs and made sure they had their passports and docs to get back to the US. Also they asked them if they had insurance and assured them that their insurance company would pay to replace the trucks.

My buddy Cody is a contractor and had a bunch of his hats on the dash of his truck. He said they were all wearing his hats. LOL. Scary story, but said they were respectful, but it was obvious not to cross them. They did tell them if they told the military which way they went they would come back and kill them.... needless to say that was their last trip to Mexico.

The next couple of hours was pretty intense and we had cartel running all around our ranch, very thankful the outcome wasn’t worse and we have one heck of a story to tell, and Cody gets some free business advertising!
Viva and ill be back next week!
Sounds familiar.. Are your buddies going back after that??
