    looking for guide recommendations to get me on a cinnamon teal. Been a bucket list duck for a while and being from the east coast i’ve never seen one and would like one for the wall. Any info would be appreciated

    Seeing more and more of them in the Houston area, but most are just passing through on their way to South America and they aren't in good plumage yet. Most don't return until after the season is over.

    But I did get a good one this year...

    No recommendation on a guide but the further west the better...

    Call Ramsey at getducks. Your best bet is probably Mexico. Some places there you can pretty well count of shooting several to pick from during a trip.

    I met up with some guys on this forum from California and shot one some public land. Always an option.

    Have shot plenty in Argentina. Do not know if you can import into US.

    This is a good option . Head to the grasslands region of CA south of Stockton and hunt the public refuges. That area holds the most cin teal - at least in my experience. You will have a better shot at one going that route than a guide anywhere else in CA.

    It will cost you a CA OOS license, refuge day passes ~$21/day, air, rental car, and about $50/night shacking up in a motel 6 in nearby Santa Nella. The refuges in that area of CA only hunt Wed/Sat/Sun save for one that is Wed/Sat. You should post on the CA forum and you will likely get better help/answers than I can provide.

    Also come in January so the birds are fully plummed if you want one for the wall.

    We get them here in Nevada most Januaries when the weather is mild.You could bring your wife or gal and stay in Vegas and me and or my son could probably get you one without a guide.Make a getaway out of it.I could let you borrow a gun and a license is 21.00 a day Its just there are less chances then if you went with a guide,but he can't guarantee you one either.Obviously it's to late to do it this year but we could try for next year. We also have some fair Pintails numbers in late January also.

    Go in January if you can. The cinnamons get pretty thick again at the end of the season in the southern Central Valley of CA and are fully plumed. They are stunning birds at that time of the year. We usually have multiple opportunities at them when I can get out into that area.
