What Makes Us
Different?

Bader Ranch offers a more private hunting experience.

We put fewer hunters around our fields which takes pressure off the birds. We don’t like to feel crowded when we hunt and we don’t think our clients do either.

  • Irrigated Oilseed Sunflower plots providing habitat and food sources.
  • Our property is managed year-round to create optimal living conditions.
  • Strategically placed ponds with shoreline water access, ideal for doves.

We have world class dove hunting right here in Texas. Thinking about an Argentina dove hunt……no need to leave the states. San Antonio residents can reach Hondo in 30 minutes for a dove hunt.
