Hunting in South Texas

Hunting in South Texas is an adventure all its own. The first two weeks of September are a White Wing hunters’ paradise. This is the only region in the United States where white wing dove may be taken. Larger game such as white-tailed deer, wild turkey, javelina, nelgui, and quail may also be taken at hunting leases in the area. Two lotteries, one for rifle and one for bow, are held each winter in order to hunt on the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge.
