Myself and 4 other men hunted with Daryl and his guides last October. I will say they had plenty of birds even with the hatching in the Tundra being terrible to say the least. We did not have many Lesser birds which makes it harder on anyone to get birds to decoy but he always found a way to get us on birds. The team of 3 guides took turns on guiding and scouting to make sure we had a good hunt. I honestly wanted to bring the cook home with us as she made the best food I’ve eaten at any hunting lodge. In fact it was overall some of the best food I’d ever eaten and I believe I came home 10 pounds heavier. This was a top notch outfitter and for this being the first year this particular lodge was in full operation I must say everything was perfect and we had a great time hunting as well as cutting up with the guys. I highly recommend this outfitter and think every waterfowl hunter who is afforded the opportunity to go to Canada to hunt should consider Ongaro's whether it is in Alberta or Saskatchewan. I would be going back this year if I could round up enough people to go again. I heard someone had contacted Greg about coming back but he will not be able to go this year. I would appreciate if someone contacted me to go over the offer that was made about hunting the Spring snow goose hunt and the fall hunt. I believe you should have my information in order to email or call me. Guys if you like to kill many different species in numbers this is the place to go. We killed Blues, Snows, Canada’s, Specs, Mallards, Teal, and Pintails. Daryl is a very smart man and is always looking out for his clients. He is not happy if you don’t kill a bunch of birds. In fact, he gets upset when someone returns to camp without the number of birds he expected. That shows me he cares about his customer and wants them all to have a great hunt every time they leave the lodge. Give them a try and you wont be disappointed.
I have been hunting ducks and geese for over 40 years and the time I spent at OSA was the best 3 days hunting of my life. The numbers of decoying geese were amazing, and these guys know their stuff"
“Trip of a lifetime, the amount of waterfowl was incredible and the hunting was top notch”
“What a great time. Daryl was awesome. The cook spectacular. Only downfall was no real weather and you or I don’t control that.”
You and your crew made our stay and hunts in Alberta “epic”. The limits of honkers, specs and mallards and the comfortable hospitality have made our trip memorable. Alberto’s culinary delights added an inch to our waistlines.
Proud to say we hunted with Ongaro’s. totally freaking Awesome! You are the best!

Claudio, Thanks for another group of great hunts.
Please pass my email address to Alberto. A number of us would like his recipe for the grilled specs!!!
