My guess: pretty good chance but not a shoo-in. The Gold Card is not particularly difficult to get. I doubt I could get Ducks Unlimited, but I did somehow fluke my way into a Gold Card (don't be deceived by my scores), so if you got Ducks Unlimited recently, that makes me think you'd probably get the Gold Card.
Amex primarily looks at EX, fwiw. Good luck!

I was about to reply to an earlier post, when I saw you were denied. Sorry to hear that, but you'll get it eventually. And, I would think Ducks Unlimited would be quite a bit pickier than Amex Gold, but maybe I'm wrong about that.
You could call the recon line at Amex. Might be worth it in this case. Either way, good luck!
