DOVE HUNTS

California Dove Hunts

With plenty of sustenance and multiple water sources, our dove hunts provide an exceptional deal of action, which means a whole lot of shooting practice. Most of our setups are strategically placed near those same waterholes and between food sources. Oak Stone Outfitters is lucky enough to have a strong population of Eurasian Collared dove that are open season, having no bag limits with the ability of being hunted year around. Due to the heavy activity of movement throughout the day, dove hunts are great for combos with our other excellent hunting opportunities during the midday lull.

What To Expect

Our dove hunts offer a couple variations in hunting options. Hunters may book 1-day dove hunts, which would include a morning and evening hunt. Another option is to combine the dove hunt with one of our other thrilling hunting opportunities, such as big game hunts consisting of animals such as Blacktail deer or wild pig. Our guides will be with you throughout your journey, should you require any support and/or direction. We endeavor to bring you an unforgettable experience, one to last a lifetime.
