Exotics Seasons: Year Around
The exotics hunts are fully guided. These hunts consist of spot and stalk hunting and some blind hunting. The terrain on this property has facilitated great growth for the exotics and makes for an exciting hunt.
If you are after an axis, the best time to hunt one has traditionally been May – July, but you can hunt all exotics year-round.
Whitetail Season: November – January
This lodge has been awarded for its premier whitetail on the property. As with all of their animals, they take great care in managing the populations and increasing a high-nutrition environment for them. The whitetail hunts are primarily conducted from custom blinds.
For both whitetail and exotics, the guides are constantly monitoring herds to be sure their guests have the best and most successful hunt possible.
Wingshooting Season: Upland quail package: October – March
3 Bird hunt package (pheasant, chukar, and quail): October – March
The wingshooting consists of quail, chukar, and pheasant hunts. A mix of pre-season release and the large population of native birds make these hunts thrilling, to say the least. From September to March, you can choose to hunt any of these three or do a combo hunt. The well-trained dogs and guides will add fun to your hunt as you watch them work and help you succeed.
Turkey Season: Spring or Fall
Turkey hunting is also an option here. Hunt from the incredible population of Rio Grande turkeys that live on this property. Your guide will help you execute the hunt and assist you in achieving one of the most rewarding hunts: getting a gobbler during the spring season.
