San Angelo Texas Dove Hunting Property

Our San Angelo, Texas dove hunts take place on 2500 acres outside of Wall, TX. The ranch is located right outside some of the best crop fields in the state and is home to not only one of the best mesquite roosting areas but also 150 acres of pure milo, 150 acres of pure wheat, and an unbelievably good rock quarry. We have the absolute perfect location for dove hunting. Our hunters are able to shoot dove during feeding, watering, and gritting hours. The action is non stop and if you can shoot, getting a limit (15) is not an issue. On opening day of 2017 our average was 30 minutes per hunter to complete their daily bag limit and we even had 2 hunters acquire their limits in less than 20 minutes! That's some serious dove flight action!

Check out the video below for a little of our dove hunting action at the rock quarry. It's non stop!

More Information About the Mourning Dove Species

The mourning dove is one of seven species of doves and pigeons native to Texas. While other species like the white-winged dove, white-tipped dove, Inca dove, ground dove, red-billed pigeon and band-tailed pigeon have rather restricted ranges in Texas, the mourning dove occurs throughout the state and is in fact the most numerous and widely-distributed game bird in North America with a continental population estimated at 500 million.

Texas is the number one dove hunting state in the nation; each year more than 400,000 Texas hunters of all ages bag 5 to 7 million mourning doves.

The majority of t h e dove hunting activity in Texas occurs within the first two to three weeks of the dove season. Texas dove hunters average four days of dove hunting per season with an average seasonal bag of 15-20 mourning doves. Nationwide, approximately eight shots are expended for each mourning dove bagged.

Mourning doves are almost exclusively seed-eaters. Their diet includes both native and introduced seeds. Native plant seed particularly important to doves in Texas include sunflower, croton (also known as doveweed, goatweed, or teaweed), ragweed and pigweed

Mourning doves generally water twice a day, once in mid-morning and once in late evening. As with feeding areas, mourning doves prefer their watering sites open and free of tall, concealing vegetation

Mourning doves nest most frequently in scattered trees or in trees located along the edge of a field or forested area.

State and federal laws prohibit the hunting of mourning doves Baiting and other migratory species over areas that have been "baited" by scattering grain, salt, or other feed to attract the birds. An area is considered to remain baited for 10 days after all bait has been removed. However, mourning dove hunting is permitted on or over lands where grain or other feed has been scattered as a result of bona fide agricultural operations or as a result of manipulation of a crop or other feed on the land where it has been grown for wildlife management purposes. Manipulation for wildlife purposes cannot include the distributing or scattering of grain or other feed once it has been removed from or stored on the field where it was grown.

*As noted earlier, mourning doves are highly mobile and readily attracted to abundant food and water. However, heavy, continuous hunting can cause doves to leave desirable habitat. Even light hunting pressure can cause them to leave marginal habitat.
