Legends Dove Hunt
Experience some of the best dove hunting in all of Texas on the premier ranches of the Texas Midwest. Enjoy hunting on these magnificent ranches that are steeped in rich legacies of tradition. You still can see miles and miles of rolling countryside where stage coaches and cattle drives crossed. The routes of the Butterfield Stage Line and the ruins of their overnight lodges are still there to excite your imagination for the frontier way of life. It’s a part of Texas we continue to cherish because no where else can you still experience the land just like it was when the first pioneers tamed the frontier.
Long known – and until now – largely inaccessible to the public, these landowners have partnered together to open their ranches for discerning sportsmen to take advantage of unparalleled dove hunting. And why this rare opportunity? It is because these landowners know the proceeds are going to one of their favorite charities, Hendrick Children’s Hospital. Avid dove hunters from all across Texas will have a chance to harvest plenty of doves migrating through a natural flyway unobstructed by settlement.
Join in this rare opportunity to enjoy prime dove hunting - and special events - on the last of the big Texas Midwest ranches. Click here to learn more.
