Hondo, Texas, is the home of world-class dove hunting. Not only is it a beautiful Texas Hill Country town, but it’s situated immediately along the migratory path of this game bird. With Hondo’s excellent agricultural land, small forested areas along the outskirts, and well-positioned bodies of water, hunters know that it’s the place to be when the season opens on September 1, 2019. Not only that, but the town welcomes their business, observing the hunt, fun, and comradery that comes with the annual event.  This year, the Hondo Area Chamber of Commerce is holding its Hunt Hondo event on August 31, 2019. Hunt Hondo welcomes hunters and enthusiasts to an all-ages celebration of the area’s status as a top Texas hunting location. Featuring a number of exciting and instructive competitions and classes, this year’s event will also boast an outdoor expo unlike any other. It all combines to make for an event worthy of its name and of those who enjoy this Lone Star State pastime with a passion.

The “Outrun the Gun 5K” will kickoff this family-focused event. This fun-run/walk begins at 8 a.m. at the Medina County Fair Hall. It will have three divisions—youth, men, and women. Awards will be given to the winner in each category as well as the runner dressed in their best camo attire. The entry fee for this race is $20, which includes an “Outrun the Gun” t-shirt! Registration can be completed at the link available here. This friendly competition sets the stage for the rest of the day’s events, which the entire family is sure to enjoy.
