What Makes Us

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.
Bader Ranch hunting safety tips

South Texas Dove
Hunting - Safety Tip

Make your location known to other dove hunters in the field and make sure you see the dove hunters around you. Communication while dove hunting is key. Determine where the other dove hunters are in the field and keep the location in mind as you dove hunt. Make sure you watch for new dove hunters entering the fields. Remember to keep a safe distance between yourself and the other South Texas Dove Hunters. You will not only be safer but you will have a better South Texas Dove Hunt if all the dove hunters are spread out. Help other dove hunters become aware of your presence by wearing bright orange dove hunting gear.
