Dove Hunting can be a fun and safe activity for all ages if the proper hunting precautions are observed, and world-class dove hunting can be found right here in the Texas Hill Country. The Hondo Area Chamber of Commerce invites the entire family to experience their one-of-a-kind Hunt Hondo event! The fun takes place on August 11, 2018, at Paloma Pachanga. This uniquely beautiful Hill Country hunting area has been recognized as the top dove hunting location in Texas. Featuring a variety of exciting and instructive competitions and classes,  this is one outdoor event you don’t want to miss!

Dove hunting safety precautions kickstart this family-focused event. Young and old alike are invited to learn, become confident, and feel safe experiencing a dove hunt in the Texas Hill Country. When hunters are aware of the proper preparations and precautions, it results in a safe and potentially more successful hunt. Lying directly in the flight corridor for the migration of both the mourning dove and the white-winged dove, Hondo is a hub of hunting activity during the season. It stands to reason that the town would not only celebrate this great outdoor activity which feeds families but also take the opportunity to promote hunting education. At this event, younger Texans will learn proven techniques.

It all begins with the cross-country 5K “Outrun the Gun” fun run/walk. Participants ranging from youth through adult (with categories for both men and women) will journey down a beautiful trail winding through the Paloma Pachanga property. With awards for the top runners in each division, this wonderful competition sets the stage for the day’s other great events. The entire family is welcome to participate.

From 9 a.m. until noon, Paloma Pachanga will offer shooting from their 5-stand skeet range. Participants can try their accuracy on a moving target. Overlooking beautiful Hondo Creek, this awesome setting requires only that shooters show up with their own gun and ammunition to have a sure-fire good time. For the younger hunting enthusiasts, Dove Hunting 101 will be presented at Hunt Hondo by the Texas Dove Hunters Association. This wonderful hands-on seminar helps to properly introduce younger generations (age eight and up) to bird identification, safety, and hunting ethics. Between special events, vendors and food trucks will be on-site throughout the day for attendees to shop, eat, and enjoy.
