South Texas Dove Hunting
The opening weekend of South Zone dove season is synonymous to a state holiday in Texas. STHO hosts groups of dove hunters from all over the United States for our annual opening weekend dove hunt. It is hard to beat a good dove hunt if you are looking for a hunting experience full of excitement and fun.
Our dove hunts provide excellent hunting opportunities to corporate groups and medium or small size groups.
Our South Texas Dove hunts take place in several locations. We offer day hunting as well as “all-inclusive” hunting packages. Our day hunting packages are offered in Kleberg, Nueces, San Patricio, and Brooks county. During the beginning of the season, we focus our day hunts around the areas of Kingsville, Riviera, Bishop, Alice, Agua Dulce, and Falfurrias. Our “all-inclusive” dove hunting packages are done on ranches in Klebery and Starr county near Riviera and Roma.
Some of our best dove hunting takes place in milo and sunflower fields. We also hunt over waterholes and dove weed. Our dove hunts are pre-scouted, this process begins the week before opening day and does not end until our last hunt of the season. We follow the birds through several counties during the season.
Dove Day Hunts
Our day hunts are based on a morning and evening hunt, or a limit of birds. We typically meet at a designated location on the morning of the hunt. Location depends which field we are going to hunt that day. We contact our hunters several days before the hunt to arrange the meeting time and place. After meeting we will drive to the field which is normally less than 15 minutes from town. A guide will give everyone a safety briefing then you will be allowed to hunt. The fields we hunt range in size from 100-700 acres. Each field will only allow a certain number of hunters. Safety is our number one concern, we will not over crowd a field.
