Upland Game Birds

Upland Game bird hunting includes dove, quail and Rio Grand Turkey.  The Lonesome Coyote Ranch borders the Nueces River, has five large ponds and numerous food plots that attract birds.  We also feed year round to keep the turkey and quail from moving onto other places.

We have mourning and white wing dove and bob both wild and released and blue only wild quail hunting.  Dove and quail hunting is done with a guide and dogs.   Rio Grande Turkey are primarily hunted along the river bottom.

At the Lonesome Coyote Ranch, all bird hunts are booked on a first come, first served basis.

Dove season is September 21 to October 28, 2012 and December 22, 2012 to January 22, 2012.

Quail season runs from October 27, 2012 through February 24, 2013.  The daily bag limit is 15 and total possession is 45.

There is a fall season and a spring season for Rio Grande Turkey.  The fall season is from November 3, 2012 to January 20, 2013.  Archery only is September 29 through November 2, 2012 and the special youth (16 years of age and younger) season is two weekends.  The first is October 27 & 28, 2012 and the second is January 19 & 20, 2013.  The spring season for Rio Grand Turkey runs from March 16 through April 28, 2013.  There are also two special youth (16 and younger) weekends on March 9 & 10, 2013 and May 4 & 5, 2013.

We book a full calendar of dove, quail and rio grande turkey hunts during each season so be sure to book your Texas bird trip to Lonesome Coyote well in advance.

Our dove, quail and turkey hunting trips are not restricted to a set number of days.  However, our standard Hunt Package is 3 days and 2 nights and typically you arrive after lunch on Friday and depart at noon on Sunday.  Also, we consider our lodge full at 4 people, can comfortably accommodate up to 14 and can sleep 20.  Just let us know if you would like to make arrangements other than the standard 3-day 2-night package or for more than four hunters when booking your upland bird Texas hunt.

In order for your South Texas trip to be booked we must receive a non-refundable 50% deposit for your group in advance. Reservations are only held for 15 days, so once you have spoken to us and your hunt dates have been reserved, be sure that we receive your payment within that time to confirm your selected dates.  We accept cash, credit card, money orders or personal checks.  Please note that if you cancel the deposit is not refundable.  However, you are welcome to find a replacement or reschedule according to ranch calendar availability but no shows are billed in full.

The accommodations, hospitality, and of course the deer were second to none. Thank you for your support of the Veteran Outdoors, the Former Texas Ranger Foundation, and for giving Spc. Deven Schei a weekend and a trophy deer he will never forget!

I now truly know the meaning of "southern hospitality". You have a great ranch and run a first class operation.
Steven Lavach
After hunting several ranches throughout South Texas over the last 15 years, I have finally found one that has it all. Fantastic accommodations, food and overall comfort are second to none. The number of quality animals is simply unbelievable.
