Lodging:

We will be staying at Paradise Canyon, which is located at 2220 Co Rd 2615, Rio Medina, TX 78066 and the phone number is (830) 751-9911. You can see more at http://paradisecanyon.com/. Linens are being provided but bring your own pillow and pillowcase.

 Hunting:

We will be hunting near Castroville, TX with Full Count Dove Hunts on Saturday and Sunday. As part of our discounted agreement, adults will not shoot birds to fill limits for the youth. We will observe all applicable laws and regulations and pick up our spent shells. Plan to clean your own birds.

Travel to fields:

It is recommended that we carpool to the fields each morning.

 Meals:

Snacks will be available Friday evening. Dinner will be provided Saturday night. Breakfast will be provided Saturday and Sunday morning. Plan to eat out for lunch or bring something with you. There will be a limited amount of drinks available but bring your favorite soft drinks.

 Freebies: 

Door prizes will be given out Saturday night. If you’d like to donate door prizes, please let us know.

Rules:

  1. Perfect people are not allowed. Come as you are, no pretending.
  2. No drunkenness. Alcohol in moderation is allowed, but not in the fields, please.
  3. No profanity. We want to keep the environment kid friendly.
  4. Have a good time.

 What to bring: 

  • Pillow and pillow case
  • Everyone should bring their own shotgun, shells, and gear.
  • Sunscreen, bug spray, hat, and sunglasses
  • Hunting or Field clothing and boots
  • Hunting License with Migratory bird stamp endorsement
  • Knife and Ziploc bags – plan to clean your own birds
  • A cooler and ice
  • Drinks and food for lunches and snacks
  • River toys and fishing gear for down time at Paradise Canyon
  • A willing attitude that’s eager to help make it work and have a good time – remember, everyone helping is a volunteer, so set your expectations as though you are going on a weekend trip with friends.

Bring plenty of shells. It’s reported that the average is 5 to 7 shots for every downed dove. Another report put average kill rates at 3 birds per box of shells. For the 30 birds, that could be a lot of shells!

 

Keep in mind that shooting time begins 30 minutes prior to sunrise and ends at sundown. The drive to the fields is about 20 minutes.
