    The very best dove hunting Texas has to offer!

    For as long as we can remember, the west Texas counties of Nolan, Mitchell and Fisher have produced the very best dove hunting in Texas.

    The reason the hunting is so great in these three counties is that these counties lie in the heart of the flyway of the birds that generally migrate southward from Kansas and Oklahoma. This migration continues through the latter part of the season, providing outstanding wing shooting from opening day, all the way thru the end of the season. Unlike some places you can hunt, we have a steady supply of fresh birds coming down from Kansas and Oklahoma all during the season. Regardless of when you want to come hunt, we will have plenty of birds available, so you can schedule your hunt at your convenience. You don't have to be there opening day in order to get good shooting! We got it all during the season!

    The mature birds coming down from Kansas and Oklahoma are truly the test of a hunter and the delight of those who like to see and pursue birds in their natural habitat.

    If you talk to an outfitter about a dove hunt, make it a point to question him about how many fields he has, and how often he hunts those fields. This is the difference between our hunts and those of our competition. We utilize 20 different fields and 15 additional water holes so that we seldom hunt the same field twice without giving the birds a chance to rest and regroup. Some outfitters have to use the same fields over and over, so the number of doves is diminished. We have had over 14 years of world-class shooting.

    We have without a doubt the very best dove hunting in West Texas!!

    Hunting is generally in planted fields of milo, sunflowers, or wheat, with stands of trees nearby where the doves roost and with water holes nearby. We have literally spent years finding these hotspots in a 25 to 30 mile area of Sweetwater. This broad area to hunt allows our hunters to be assured of a good hunt, regardless of the weather or success of the farmers planting their grain.

    By having this much land to hunt, we sometimes catch a big migration of doves coming through from Kansas or Oklahoma that have stopped to rest and eat on one of our hunting leases. While the hunters are hunting or back at the motel resting, we also have people out scouting other hunting areas. We have often found these migrations during a morning hunt, and have the group load up and leave a field to go get in on the hot shooting.

    We also scout the fields prior to every hunt, so that you are always on the best locations on every hunt. Our guides are professional with plenty of dove hunting experience.


    Our hunting area is in the "open country" where the west really begins and the birds are acrobats at their very best. Fast flying, darting doves are hard to kill. We recommend 12 gauge shotguns with modified, improved cylinder or skeet chokes. We also recommend 3 1/4 drams, 1 1/8th oz. of number 7 1/2 or number 8 shot, as a minimum. High velocity loads are even better. We recommend that you not use the lighter 3-1-8 cheap shotgun shells that are always on sale right before season. Spend another 50 cents and get the better shells. You will have a much better percentage of kills with the heavier load of shot.

    Our commitment and goal is to provide you a safe, enjoyable, productive and memorable dove hunting experience. We hope you will relax and enjoy yourself. Our clients testify that there is no such thing as a bad hunt with us!! Be sure to read some things that other people have said about us!

    Your clients will be impressed with the quality of dove hunting available with us.

    Our VIP corporate hunting package includes full accomodations at the Headquarters Hotel, (see registration form) with breakfast each morning, and a barbecue/steak dinner Saturday night.

    We also provide someone to clean and package your birds for tips. All you do is hunt! An excellent way to entertain your clients, so you can spend time with them while we take care of the trip incidentals. You can build close working relationships with your clients or with your employees. An excellent way to motivate employees. It is also an excellent way to get close to family members. Hunting creates a bond among people that is hard to beat.

    For complete information on prices and what the corporate package includes, call Robert Echols at 903-663-9181.

    Here are a few tips to help you enjoy your hunt and to help with getting your limit:

  • Foremost: Be safe with your gun! A lifetime of hunting can be ruined by one careless moment. Make sure of your target and don't take any chances. Our hunts have plenty of doves, so pass up a shot that might endanger another hunter and move to a safe distance from other hunters. All hunters are required to attend the prehunt safety meeting-no exceptions! We want you to be safe and we want the other hunters to be safe for you!

  • Wear caps and eye protection in fields. A pair of shooting glasses and caps should be every bit as important as a hunter's shotgun, boots, vest and dog. Hunt in a safe and ethical manner.

  • Obey all Texas Parks & Wildlife Hunting Laws and Federal Hunting Laws. Game Wardens are plentiful in Texas, and we encourage you to abide by all laws at all times. Keep your birds bagged separately from other hunters. Illegal doves are very expensive!

  • Respect the land and the wildlife. Pick up your trash and hulls each hunt, no exceptions!

  • Wear camouflage or drab colored clothes and use any natural cover to hide in when doves are flying. Doves are extremely sensitive to movement, so move as little as possible when you are shouldering your gun.

  • Protective Shooting/Sun Glasses
  • Ear Protection

    Read some comments from previous hunters with us:

    ......Never in my forty years of hunting had I seen mourning doves like those feeding in this 80-acre mowed forage sorhum field. Well before the end of shooting hours, nearly every shooter in our group of about thirty hunters took their limits. Roger Wells
    Dove Hunter Magazine

    ......everything was perfect....I know that all of us plan to attend next year and hopefully bring additional guests.

    ......Thanks so much for a great time. Your country is some of the most beautiful I have ever been in, including Colorado and Alaska! Hope to see you next year.
    Ken Evans
    Grant, Michigan

    ......Having dove-hunted many areas of Texas over the years, this has consistently been the best I've found. The outfitter has gained access to thousands of acres for hunting, keeps track of the birds, and does his best to provide a good hunt.
    Dr. Harold G. Hill
    Nacogdoches, Texas

    ......long time friend! I started hunting with this outfitter when he first started outfitting, many years ago. A first class operation! Never had a bad hunt, even when the weather should have caused us to get skunked! We always had a great hunt....could not recommend anyone higher!
    Outdoor News Journal
    Wayne Hartt, Editor
    Longview, TX

    ......I would never have dreamed how much sport these fast flying birds could offer, or the numbers of doves in Texas.
    Bruce Pelon
    Grant, MI

    ......the hunting was phenomenal and a good time was had by all in my group. Looking forward to next years hunt.
    Steve Waller
    Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems

    ......This is wing shooting at its best! I have never been disappointed with Echo Leisure Sports in the many years I have hunted with them. Successful hunts result from a variety of terrain and habitat available.
    Frank Smith
    Nacogdoches, TX

    ......I was very impressed with all of the perfect dove habitat you have acquired over the last few years. You can't beat a combination of water and fields of wild sun flowers and wheat for attracting and holding those birds!....your hunts are my hunting high point of the year.
