Gayne: Wait a minute. You didn't list onza cat? Don't you offer hunts for onza? Arturo: I wish. We can't get hunting licenses for those, [but] all cowboys in Sonora have seen at least one, they have [also] seen pink elephants jumping from flower to flower. NOTE: The onza cat may or may not exist. It is similar to Bigfoot in America.

Gayne: Salma Hayek or Ana De La Reguera? Arturo: They are part of the program every night. Note: I don’t remember seeing Ana De La Reguera in camp last time I hunted with Arturo.

Gayne: I had horrible wake up screaming nightmares every night I hunted in the Yucatan Jungle near Campeche (with another outfitter). When I returned to the states I found out Campeche is a hot spot for UFO activity. What do you think? Were aliens screwing with my head? Arturo: Were any of those Sonora cowboys with you at the same time? Pictured: Arturo in the Yucatan

Gayne: Who’s your favorite Lucha libre fighter? Mine’s Super Barrio. Arturo: Super Barrio is good but being a good Mexican, I like Super Macho better. I will ask my kid, he is very knowledgeable about it.

Gayne: You visit America quite often. What’s your favorite American food? Mine’s enchiladas verde. Ok, so America stole that one from y’all but there’s plenty of food we didn’t that you can choose from. Arturo: When we go to the U.S. I like to take my family to a good Mexican restaurant. By doing so, they don’t take for granted what we eat at home. Pictured: Just how old is this picture Arturo?

Gayne: On a serious note; is Mexico safe for hunters? Arturo: There is violence in Mexico like there is violence in other parts of the world and there areas in Mexico where people shouldn’t go. I have been working as an outfitter [in the state of Baja] more than 20 years and have never had a problem. Baja is not on a drug cartel route. As a matter of fact and according to the US Homeland Security department, U.S. visitors increased their visits to Baja by 18 percent this year
