Rancho Caracol

Mourning Dove

November through February

Would you like to test your shooting skills with the high-flying acrobatics of Mexico’s legendary mourning dove? If your fall schedule does not allow you to visit us during whitewing season - or your dove fever simply spills over into the winter months – our mourning dove season offers you the opportunity to experience phenomenal dove hunting at a great price.

Mourning dove packages are available November through February with the same luxurious accommodations, gourmet cuisine and world-class service that earned us the title of Orvis's 2006 Lodge of the Year.

Mourning dove hunting occurs in two intense phases: you arrive early at the hunting fields, with your “palomeros” waiting with guns and supplies and hunt until about 9:00 AM when the birds settle down. You then have a relaxing break until early afternoon when you return for a second go at this challenging bird. Our hunts average 2 to 5 boxes each. On normal days, you won’t be sitting idle for too long, so expect to do a lot of shooting.

"I've hunted in Mexico for more than 30 years and I've never seen an operation as good. Nobody does it with the style and attention to detail as Rancho Caracol."
