HLP1 – Mexico Bird Hunts with Hacienda Las Palmas
Exceptional Bird Hunting in Mexico
Perfect for both the dedicated sportsman and the no-nonsense businessman who wishes to treat his clients, family or friends to a first-class excursion.
The Whitewing dove shooting here is nothing short of spectacular. Thousands of acres of corn and sorghum fields are close to the lodge. Extensive pre-hunt scouting keeps driving times to the shooting areas to a minimum. The Hacienda conducts traditional walk-up quail hunts behind pointers on fence rows, tree and brush lines and in grain fields. One sportswriter called them, “the wildest, fastest quail he had ever seen.” Our dog handlers have extensive experience hunting quail in Mexico. We prefer to match three hunters with each handler and will not exceed four hunters per handler.
The Hacienda also offers duck hunting on Lake Guerrero for Pintails, Widgeons, Mottled Ducks, Gadwalls, Green Wing Teal, Blue Wing Teal, Cinnamon Teal, Black Bellied Tree Ducks and Bluebills.

Typical Daily Schedule
White Winged Dove Hunt
On the dove field, there will be two bridboys waiting for you with a nice chair and a cooler full of soft drinks and beer. Your shotgun and shells will be handed by the van driver. After the hunt we set up a nice table, chairs and a nice umbrella so you can sit back and relax with a drink of your preference in your hand, talking with your hunting companions about that afternoon hunt.
The rest of the days are the same, you will hunt in the morning, come back to the lodge for lunch. There will be plenty of time for you to have a drink by the pool or a Mexican siesta if needed. After that, he head out to the afternoon hunt for another exciting hunt.
On the last day, you will hunt in the morning, head back to the lodge for lunch and go back to the airport/city where you’re flying from.
Winter Combo (quail, ducks, mourning dove and geese if available)
On the quail hunt, you will be greeted by our dog handler, bird boys and a truck with a quail rig. You will hunt over dogs if the terrain and weather are good or you will work the pastures and edge rows on a typical “walk up” style hunt.
Duck hunting is better in the mornings, that’s why we usually schedule them like that. Early in the morning we will drive to a big pong/small lake or to the big lake (Lake Guerrero). We hunt over 11 different species of ducks (all 3 teals, pintails, widgeons, gadwalls, ringnecks, bluebills, shoveleres, mottled ducks, redheads, canvasbacks, black bellied whistling tree ducks, and more), all of them usually in their full plumage.
We accommodate two hunters per blind and a guide who will assist you with the decoys, calling and picking up the dead birds.
- We also offer mourning dove hunts during winter time, this is a fun hunt, we average 5-10 boxes per hunt.
- If available we also hunt geese. We get Specks, Snows, Blues and Ross goose. We hunt over cut sorghum and corn fields. We use layout blinds, around 600-900 decoys and electronic calls.
On the last day, you will hunt in the morning, head back to the lodge for lunch and go back to the airport/city where you´re flying from.
You fly to either McAllen or Brownsville, Texas. There will be a van and a driver waiting for you at the baggage claim area to help you get your luggage in the van and drive you safely to the lodge. This is a 3:30 hour drive from the border to the lodge.
If you want to skip the border crossing, you can fly to Monterrey, Mexico (3:30 hour drive to the lodge) or you can fly direct to the lodge and land in our own private landing strip. A private charter can be arranged if you desire.
- Arriving to the lodge you will be greeted by our staff with awesome Margaritas.
- You will have a quick lunch at the lodge and head to the field for an afternoon dove hunt.
