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.

"The ranch lies in the heart of the best wild quail country in Mexico."
