Orvis - Wingshooting Lodge of The Year 2005-2006

"To qualify for the Orvis Endorsed Wingshooting Program, lodges are required to meet stringent criteria established by Orvis. Each bird hunting lodge is personally visited by our Endorsed Wingshooting Director, who carefully evaluates the quality of the experience.

Equal to the quality of the bird hunt is the quality of the lodge itself. Prompt, courteous service is a must. Accommodations at these lodges are first rate; they are always clean and comfortable and often elegant as well. Dining is a memorable experience at each, and all offer social amenities for the after-hunt hours… And if the lodge personnel aren't on a first-name basis with you when you arrive, they will be by the time you depart."


Forbes Magazine - Top Luxury Hunting Lodges

"A resort-like hacienda atop a wide mesa, Rancho Caracol was the Orvis 2005-2006 Wingshooting Lodge of the Year. The abundance of birds here from November to February puts hunters into contact with 10 to 25 coveys of quail every day, and hundreds of mourning doves and whitewing doves… creating one-of-a-kind, life-changing hunts by combining great game, unique locations and top-notch accommodations."


Field & Stream - Best Wild Bird Hunting Lodges/North America

"At (Rancho Caracol), the marquee event is wild bird hunting – no pens, no releases, no shortcuts to getting your limit… comfortable accommodations such as hot tub, gourmet meals, and fireside cocktails. But all that pampering ends the minute you pick up your gun and follow the dogs into the surrounding fields, where acres upon acres of open space provide a home for wild gamebirds – and excellent hunting."


"An unforgettable father-son experience..."
