- Hat– or forget the hat and buy one from us! Bader Ranch merch is comin’ atcha hot this year.

At Check in, expect to pay the remaining balance on your dove hunt and sign the Liability Waiver. Also expect lots of smiling faces because we are SO STOKED to have you guys come hunt with us and to put a face to all the voices we have heard over the phone for the past couple of months. All the hard work leading up to opening weekend will have paid off and it’s basically beer:30 for the next 2 months.. right?
Dove Season 2019 is going to be the best one yet, you don’t want to miss it!
We’ll see you guys in September. Hondo Texas is ready for ya!
Hunt Better, Hunt Bader.
