Its Hunting Season!

Its Hunting Season!

It’s the beginning of hunting season in Texas! It all starts with the opening of dove season. So, get your license in August and get ready to head out to the field with friends and family. Hunting for birds officially starts every year near Labor Day weekend. For a nominal fee, Texas residents can purchase a bird license or combination for deer hunting later in the year.

For many years, EPI has offered many of our customer, partners, and friends a hunt at “Rancho Colorado del Norte”. The ranch is located in Medina County in Central Texas, just 45 minutes from San Antonio. The area farmers typically produce corn and Sunflowers that bring the birds. The ranch offers tanks and multiple fields for hunting. It also, offers a beautiful Hunters Patio, skeet shooting, and horseshoe toss.

Texas offers several species of doves that hunters may harvest: mourning doves, white-wing doves, and Eurasian doves. Hunters should consult the Texas Wildlife and Game Department for the number and species you can harvest. In some counties, a bag limit of 15 birds in possession per day is permitted. There are rules as to the different species and count you can harvest. Make sure you find out what's applicable in the county you will be hunting in.

So, get out and enjoy Texas outdoors and be safe!
