    Hey was wondering if anyone had an opinion on Texas and Mexico dove hunting. Where you have gone, the price, the experence you had and the amount of shooting you did. I would love to go to Argentina, but it's out of my price range. Thanks Randy R.

    I wouldn't take myself, much less a gun, to Mexico. Did I forget to mention I wouldn't bring any of my money there either?

    As far as I'm concerned the risks far outweigh the benefits. I know that many people go there and have a ball but Mexico, right now, is out of control.

    Just my nickel's worth.

    Southeastern New Mexico (Las Cruces area)is some of the best Dove hunting available. Whitewing, Morning and Eurasian. You can shoot as many Eurasian doves as you want, until you have 15 of the other two types in possesion. On an average evening you could have, 25 Eurasian and 15 mornings or whitewing or a combo of the two. The cost of an out of state licensse is only $35.00(+-)for 4 days. There is also two seasons, 1-Sept-? and then it starts up again in late Nov. I go back every year. Long drive but worth it. Michael-Lee

    Randy, Posters are right in that Mexico isn't safe at present. I hunted Las Palomas de Loma Colorado three times in 2004-2007. Prices with air fare from central Ky everything included cost as much as my Feb 2011 trip to Argentina.
    Most Mexico outfitters are now closed due to unrest. Even in 2004-2007 we got stopped by roving military road blocks carrying auto's and not extremely friendly!

    With round trip air fare from Kentucky, all inclusive, $5000. will do Argentina very nicely including an overnight stay in Buenos Aires. Our group of seven harvested 15,694 doves. Shell bill was $10,338, that drives the price! Three day, 6 hunt cost was only $1000. Add $1000. for airfare, a night in B.A., high dollar dinner in B.A., tips, road expenses, tips and wonderul food, hosts, and lodging at the Estancia gets you to $5 K. My best day was 818 on 1,000 rounds. Greatest man trip I ever took! Will be going back!

    I'm in San Antonio. Doves like food and water. We are kind of short on both for them this year. You will have to work for a limit in many places this year. Ron

    I'm curious about the ten bird limit. Is it normally that low? Do they hang around or do they head for Mexico like ours do. Ron

    Added: I have family in Arizona. I'm headed that way later in the season.
