Where there is agriculture, there are doves, and there are good dove hunts in almost every US state, but Texas is the king of them. If you’re thinking of truly great shooting though, Argentina dove hunting is the stuff of legends, with Uruguay and Bolivia being arguably just as good. Exceptional shooting can also be found in Mexico, Africa, and Europe.
Where to go pigeon and/or dove hunting.

For some hot-barreled dove and pigeon shooting, South Africa is a great destination.
Millions of pigeons and doves fly between the city and the sunflower fields twice a day. Hunters sit in blinds along the flight paths to intercept them. This is fast action, for Rock pigeons, which many International sportsmen call the “most challenging gamebird in the world.” You can go through more than 1,000 rounds in a single day of shooting. Most of our hunters also choose to add guinea fowl and perdiz hunting to their trip.
The dove shooting in Mexico is nothing short of spectacular.
White-winged and Mourning doves, as well as pigeons are so numerous in Mexico that they’re considered to be a pest by the farmers. Thousands of acres of corn and sorghum fields are close to the lodge, and extensive pre-hunt scouting keeps driving times to the shooting areas to a minimum. A cool thing about Mexico is that you can combo your hunt with upland birds, ducks and even some fishing.
The Lone Star State is the undisputed King of dove hunting in the United States.
Dove hunting in Texas can be spectacular. The daily bag limit for doves statewide is 15 and the possession limit 45.
